Church board is working again

After some time of trying to meet in a full number of five members of the board we have succeeded to meet at the number of two people after all. I am glad that we were able to meet anyway.
- We spoke of a role of the board and about a role of each individual in it.
- About the way how to encourage those who neglect their talents
- About Rostislav and how we love him, we want to see him but he needs to respect other people in the church, so if he wants to come must take more care of himself. If he can`t do it on his own, we are open to help him, but his approach to the church and to God should change.

So good news is that the church board works again.
Thanks to God for Vitaliy and Honza`s service.

To him we serve.

Sunday, December 4th, 2005

On Sunday it was really cool Bible study, based upon verses from Luke 12:49-59.

I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?
50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!
51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:
52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.
53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
54 And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.
55 And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.
56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?
57 Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?
58 When thouguestt with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.
59 I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite.

"But I have a baptism to be baptized with"
are the words of Jesus. It refers to his death and it surprised us that it really talks about baptism in connection to a death old andresurrectionn of new.

We also talked about division of family, and disturbing effect that Jesus` teaching has in the world.

Finally, worship service was sort of lead by the Holy Spirit, because two peopleresponsiblee for service didn`t show up. So the rest of leaders had to take care of it. It was fine, we just need to pray for those who neglect the service.

Pray for us, and for Jirka and Cindy, and also for me. I have my exams on Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. CET. Actually math is hard for me.

In his Glory, mercy, and love,
