The Words of the Goldberg Family
In Jin Moon April 3, 2011
The year of 2011 is rapidly drawing to a close. The winter season is approaching with Christmas, Hanukah and Diwali, to name just a few of many winter religious celebrations of light and hope that keep people going through the cold months.
Most of us can hardly believe it is half past December already! Even as we enjoy the mild weather, Marianne and the girls are wishing for snow. It must be the Austrian ancestry at work in their hearts! Time marches on and snow will arrive in good time, I am sure.
Now is a great time to pause and reflect on what we have done and not done through the past year. We can take this moment to evaluate ourselves and make determination to repent and reform before the New Year is upon us. The Apostle Paul challenged the followers of the Messiah of his time to, "be transformed by the renewing of your minds...."
Our Senior Pastor, Reverend In Jin Moon, challenges us to make Lovin Life a way of reaching out and witnessing naturally to our family, friends and new acquaintances. Just yesterday while sharing the Lovin Life Vision with a young professional man in our area, named Andrew, I was inspired to hear his response to the sermon he heard just a few weeks ago. "The minute I walked in to the room at New Hope, I felt like this was prepared for me. The message In Jin Moon gave about the nature of "addictions of all kinds" really spoke to me personally. Knowing the Haynes family, Walter and Teresa, has set me on a renewed course of faith and I feel like I am getting stronger every day." "I was having problems and this message really helped me. I want to associate with you guys!"
Please take this opportunity to invite your close contacts and family to worship with us these next two weeks. There will be an advertisement in the Washington Times tomorrow and I am sending you an attachment which can be printed as a flyer and used as an invitation.
See you all on Sunday!
