It's a men's breakfast weekend again. Come on out for good food and company.
We'll be gathering to eat at 8:00am at WhiteSpot, 941 Langford Parkway.
We hope to see you there!
Tomorrow morning at 10:00am, there will be an interment service for Bob Morley at Hatley Memorial Gardens (about halfway back, by the office). Anyone who wishes to attend is welcome.
A memorial service is planned in a couple of weeks' time and details for that service will be shared in the near future.
All members of Westside Bible Church are asked to attend this Sunday's (September 10) congregational meeting after church. All who attend Westside are welcome to remain for the meeting as well.
We will be discussing the path forward following the news of Pastor Tim's retirement from the church in October.
We will also be discussing items related to some structural repairs needed on the building.
Experiencing the Glory of God stirs a response of boldness from His creation.
Jesus is the Lord of His church - both the "me" and "we" of it.

Imitation is an important part of Christian life.
Let us respond to examples of faith with aspiration - not admiration.
People who are examples of faith are not necessarily prosperous people.
Rahab is an example of faith and a reminder that faith is also for those outside of the faith.
The people of Israel marching around the city of Jericho are an example of faith in God even when it seems ridiculous to believe.
The people of Israel crossing through the Red Sea are an example of how faith is for groups too.
One of the challenges of parenting is raising our children amongst the mystery of how/what God is working in/through their lives.
