Last night the Oriental community joined together for our annual Thanksgiving Service. It was held at the St. Peter's Catholic Church; they have the largest sanctuary and over 300 people attend this service each year. Their harvest decorations on the stage were so beautiful!
The pastors had met and assigned their various duties for the service, and this year Adam was given the task of preaching the Thanksgiving sermon. He did a great job! He preached about Ex. 24, the passage that describes the ascent of Moses and the elders of Israel, up the mountain to meet God, see heaven, and eat a meal. The text says that they saw God, and they ate and drank. Meals are all about fellowship, and God demonstrates this truth for us Himself. It was a good sermon.
