Dear Friends,

If you have a garden you probably have at least one tank for capturing rain water for those days of no or little rain.  Imagine taking great time, money, attention and detail to setup and care for a water tank in a shared garden. Then someone comes along, throws your water tank away, and instead sets up another water tank, which has a big leak in it and in reality holds no water.  That is how the Lord describes His people as acting towards His blessings on them.  Read it in the image above, it is taken from Jeremiah 2:13 and dated to around 600 BC.   Harsh words?  No, they are truthful words direct from the heart of the Lord!  Who paints a vivid picture of the disloyalty of His people and the utter futility of their current way of thinking and living.  

What has that to do with us some 2600 years later? Is the Lord’s charge against Judah still relevant today?  Well that is something each of us must answer.  We have in Jesus the ultimate revelation of what God is actually like. Jesus said in Luke 6:46, "But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say?". Harsh words? No, they are truthful words direct from the heart of the Lord!  Two charges were laid against Judah of old and Jesus words echo those same charges. Judah had forsaken the Lord and His ways, their source of life, health, and vitality. They had created their own useless idols that cannot do anything (the broken water tank). Jesus' invitation to us is the same today as the Lord offered wayward Judah all those years ago, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water". (John 7:37-38). What a privilege!

It is with sadness that we share that Enid Flemming has passed away. She was a long time faithful member of the Great Yarmouth Seventh-day Adventist Church, loved by all and will be greatly missed. Please remember Linda her daughter, and the rest of Enid'e extended family, in your prayers. 

This Saturday/Sabbath, we will meet again at the Lowestoft Church Building for Adult, Children and Teen Sabbath Schools, starting at 10am. That will be followed by our Worship Service at 11.15am. The Worship Service will also be on Zoom and Facebook. We do want to encourage you to attend in person. Social distancing will be in place and masks are required. We look forward to Helen Wilkinson singing the hymns for us. There will also be the special occasion of an anointing for young Caleb Manogaran. We will also have the second reading for Rebecca Tom coming into local membership. The children's story will be told by Danail Keshishyan. Pastor Mark will give a message continuing the series on the Feasts of the Lord found in Leviticus 23, called "Sounding the Advance". It looks at the festival called the "blowing of trumpets".
 
Be Blessed,

Pastor Mark
