Life Pointe Church Sunday Morning Tossed Salad

– This is the edition of the ‘Tossed Salad’ that nearly wasn’t.
– Allow me to briefly summarize my wild and crazy morning here.
Phil Collins once sang “Something Happened On The Way To Heaven”.
– This morning I sang “Something Happened On The Way To Church”.
– A neighbour wanted a jump start from me at 7:30 AM.
– I said ‘Sure’, and I parked over next to him.
– He connected our two cars via his jumper cables.
– It didn’t work.
– When I went to pull out of the parking space I had no power steering !
– The message ‘PWR STR’ appeared under the speedometer.
– I could barely move my steering wheel with immense struggle.
– I think the jumper cable somehow blew out my power steering.
– It’s just a guess, as I really have no earthly idea how cars work.
– I called Saturn Roadside Assistance.
– They contracted with a tow truck operator in Homestead.
– My Saturn dealership is closed for service on Sunday.
– We know that because me, the tow truck driver, and my car went there.
– My car is now sitting in the tow truck storage yard until tomorrow.
– Meanwhile I’m now driving a rental car courtesy of Budget.
– It’s a fairly new Chevy Cobalt – silver in colour.
– It kinda sorta looks like my power steering-less Saturn.
– That Cobalt took me to Life Pointe Church about two hours late.
– Sorry Satan – You lose again.
– I attended the 10:30 AM service for the first time since last July.
– Rock star siblings Jesse and Alex led ‘Praise & Worship’. 
– I got to serve Communion during the 2ND service.
Pastor Travis led this morning’s teaching on ‘The Challenge Of Eternity’.
– I must live with an eternal perspective.
– I must recognize that I’m created for eternity.
– I must secure my eternity in Heaven.
– I must invest my Life in eternal pursuits.
– This morning’s teaching was based on the following 12 verses of the Bible:
  – Colossians 3:2
  – Jude 1:21
  – Genesis 1:27
  – Ecclesiastes 3:11
  – Psalm 39:4
  – John 3:16
  – 2 Corinthians 5:1
  – John 10:28
  – Mathhew 25:21
  – Matthew 6:19-20
  – 1 Corinthians 9:25
– I’m glad that I was able to get to LPC this morning despite the difficulties.
– That’s where I belong every Sunday morning.
