Life Pointe Church Sunday Morning Tossed Salad

It’s the middle Sunday of November of 2008, and we are the church that meets at the movie theatre here in Homestead Florida U.S.A.

Pastor Travis officially announced at each of the three services that Pastor Paul, Ms. Annie, and the kids would soon be leaving us and moving on to Tennessee to continue their ministries there. Paul will lead one final teaching at each of the three services two Sundays from today on the 30TH of November.

This week’s teaching was based on Chapter 2 of the Book of Jonah:

Jonah’s Prayer
Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from inside the fish.
2  He said, “I cried out to the LORD in my great trouble, and he answered me. I called to you from the land of the dead, and LORD, you heard me !
3  You threw me into the ocean depths, and I sank down to the heart of the sea. The mighty waters engulfed me; I was buried beneath your wild and stormy waves.
4  Then I said, ‘O LORD, you have driven me from your presence. Yet I will look once more toward your holy Temple.’
5  “I sank beneath the waves, and the waters closed over me. Seaweed wrapped itself around my head.
6  I sank down to the very roots of the mountains. I was imprisoned in the earth, whose gates lock shut forever. But you, O LORD my God, snatched me from the jaws of death !
7  As my life was slipping away, I remembered the LORD. And my earnest prayer went out to you in your holy Temple.
8  Those who worship false gods turn their backs on all God’s mercies.
9  But I will offer sacrifices to you with songs of praise, and I will fulfill all my vows.
  For my salvation comes from the LORD alone.”
10  Then the LORD ordered the fish to spit Jonah out onto the beach.

I won’t be present next Sunday morning at the LPC, so be sure to catch the next edition of the ‘Tossed Salad’ on the final Sunday of November.
