What is this world coming too? Just read the papers and you discover that life is complicated. What we need is people who understand the times. David recognized that, and God blessed his army with "men of Issachar, who understood the times and new what Israel should do" (I Chronicles 12:32). God has gifted his church with "men and women of Issachar." These are the people who lead and teach. They are our volunteers and our seasoned members. Through them, God will help us to understand the times in which we live, even when we are crushed by the sorrow of sudden death. This Sunday we commission our teachers and leaders, while we also gather around a family who mourns the loss of their 21 year old son. September 15, 10 a.m.
