Welcome – 29 August 2021

The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him
The LORD is the strength of his people; 
he is the saving refuge of his anointed.. Psalm 28:7-8

Unprecedented strain is upon the world that some even expect we are on the verge of "end-times tribulation". Burdens seem to be increasing faster than the efforts of relief – wars, pandemic, weather and evil. For the Christian, though, there remains a deep stillness through it all. Our strength, protection, help, joy and refuge is not found in anything from this crumbling creation – but in the Creator.

We are "the anointed" people of God – He has set His affections on us, and determined to deliver us to Himself. Keep your eyes on the LORD!
