Dear Friends,

The American Dream is defined as the social ideals of the United States of America, which are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. There is even a film called the "Pursuit of Happiness", set in San Francisco, about the quest for the American Dream. It is based on the true story of Chris Gardner, who worked hard and used his talents. The desire for happiness is a common human aspiration through out the world.  

In the bible the word happy is translated bless. It is used to describe the favour of the Lord upon us. In Psalm 32:1–2 (NKJV) it says "Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit". True and lasting happiness is only found in the favour of a personal relationship with the Lord. That favour is the forgiveness of sins through faith in Jesus, reflected in a life of thankfulness without hypocrisy. Psalm 30:5 (NKJV) says "For His anger is but for a moment, His favour is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning."  The pursuit of happiness is ultimately realised through the pursuit of the Lord. If we seek Him, the promise is that He will be found by us.

This Saturday/Sabbath both the Great Yarmouth church building and the Lowestoft church building, are open for Sabbath School and our weekly Worship Service!  The Worship Service at 11.15am, will follow Sabbath School, which starts at 10am. Please note that the Teen and Children Sabbath Schools are at Great Yarmouth. Zoom and Facebook will be live-streamed from the Great Yarmouth Church.
May the Lord bless you and keep you, 

Pastor Mark
