Ambassador Presbyterian Church is planning to partner with dozens of other churches from our denomination to participate in this year’s Appalachia Mission Trip, July 6-12. This year marks the 34th year of the mission that takes place in the tri-state area known as Appalachia near Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, TN. This mission trip allows young people and adults an excellent opportunity to share their faith with others as they partner with local churches to lead evangelistic VBS events. Students in 9th grade and up as well as adults are invited to join the group. Please pray about your commitment to going and pray for those who are considering the trip. Questions? Contact Pastor Dan.

Plan on coming to our first Sunday Night Live of the new year on January 27th at 5:00 p.m. when we will host a Vision Dinner. We will have a cover-dish supper together and then have an opportunity to hear and discuss God’s direction and vision for Ambassador in the future. We will provide childcare and activity for the children during the discussion portion of the evening. This will also serve as our annual congregational meeting to discuss and approve the 2013 budget, so please plan on attending and bring a main dish and side/salad or dessert to share.

My wife shared with me this perspective on sorrow from Amy Carmichael’s devotional Edges of His Ways. We found it particularly comforting and encouraging in light of recent events during the Christmas holidays.
Sorrow is one of the things that are lent, not given. A thing that is lent may be taken away; a thing that is given is not taken away. Joy is given; sorrow is lent. We are not our own, we are bought with a price, “and our sorrow is not our own” (Samuel Rutherford said this a long time ago), it is lent to us for just a little while that we may use it for eternal purposes. Then it will be taken away and everlasting joy will be our Father’s gift to us, and the Lord God will wipe away all tears from off all faces.
So let us use this “lent” thing to draw us nearer to the heart of Him, who was once a Man of Sorrows (He is not that now, but He does not forget the feeling of sorrow). Let us use it to make us more tender with others as He was when on earth and is still, for He is touched with the feeling of our infirmities.
May the sorrow of brokenness and sin in this world be replaced by the joy of Christ’s coming!
