Pineridge: Get out of the Boat; Treading Water
They are / have / will be doing the c2c series. They have the 8x8 cross that used to be at They installed 2 new projectors. One facing the front the other to the screen at the back. 1 service approx 120 people.
Good singing group. All modernist "worship" songs.

Pastor Lorne:
Matth 14 we like the word immediately. We will not talk about that. We'll talk about waiting. Do you like waiting? Sailing in a crisp wind is fun. Sometimes we got stuck in the middle of the lake with all the wind gone out of the sails.
Waiting at the park entrance you are
The opportunity to invite them to church
Pass by on the shoulder
40,000,000,000 hours are spent waiting in North America each year. We hate to wait.
A person without patience is like a car with no brakes.
God gives you opportunities to wait.
Interruptions happen. They are opportunities to learn patience.
You can sit on a mountain easier than on a tack. Inactivity
Patience carries a lot if wait.
Lord I need patience and I need it now!
When people got impatient waiting for elevators they install mirrors so people can see themselves and check their hair etc.
People say I'm just waiting on the Lord.
Becoming Patient
Discover a bigger protective.
We want God's resources without waiting. I must learn to trust God and wait for him to do it. To the Lord a thousand years are like a day.
Patience comes when we see life from God's point of view. Patience develops strength. The marshmallow test. Those who waited would get more marshmallows. They were the people who became successful in life.
Wait to deepen your faith. Noah waited 120 years till his boat floated.
Amen. Come Lord Jesus. The Bible talks more about Jesus's second coming than his first.
God always has the last word. Depend on Jesus's power. God will give you patience. The Egyptians chased the Israelites with evil intent. Moses said wait. God's got it under control.
What God is doing is part of the process of becoming what God wants us to do. God is waiting for you.
God's promise
Those who trust in the Lord will renew their strength.
Flap your wings. Glide. Or soar like an eagle.
God is giving you power to soar. Not on your own strength. Keep running. God will give you strength to soar in due time. He knows your condition. Jesus kept walking. He was not soaring on the way to Calvary. He stumbled and fell.
It will be worth the wait to trust in the Lord. Remember the suffering of Jesus when we take communion. We will celebrate Jesus's willingness to suffer to pay the penalty we should have paid. Jesus took your pain. Love is patient. The first word used to describe love.

Communion is served with a gluten free option.
