Falcon Lake Church

Special music by Jamie Giesbrecht
Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place
Glory to the Lamb Oh for a 1000 tongues to sing praise in honour to the king

Frances Funk called. Said to sing familiar songs.  Jamie hosts a radio program on Radio Southern Manitoba
I never shall forget the day when Jesus took all the burdens from my soul and they were rolled away.  I'll sing and shout.

Singing since she was 11. His eye is on the sparrow. When Jesus is my portion my constant friend.  He watches me. Let not your hearts be troubled. I sing because I'm free!

Pastor Brian
The hymns were written to provide easy understanding of the theology of the church.
God's eye is on us. In Jesus as we throw ourselves on His mercy we are forgiven. We come for refreshment.
We pray for government and continued freedom to worship.
Decorate the church next Saturday
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8. Linda asked why don't you preach on silence.
Silence is golden!? The silent treatment. There are problems with that.

A time to be quiet and a time to speak.

Someone said he zoned out too much. Wise people know that they are not the centre of the universe. Some people want to be noticed and interrupt to be heard. It is good to keep silent when you have nothing to say. When words aggravate the situation. Learn. When words don't help shut up.  Do you always have to have the last word. When we disrespect others we disrespect ourselves. Let the toxic people have the last word.
When you can't say good things about others don't say anything.
We have all inherited the same fallen nature. The more you talk the more you sin. Don't talk to the police. They want you to talk so they can convict you with your own words.
Two trouble makers were called into the pastor's office. Where is God? The pastor asked. The little boy ran home and told his brother that God is missing and it's our fault.
Talking too much cuts our ability to listen. People want to be understood. We often listen just to be able to reply.
We live in the presence of God. In the silence of the heart God speaks. Mother Teresa.
Replace blessing for cursing. Love always trusts.
Solitude. Silence. Freed from business we can hear God. Silence in heaven for half an hour in the presence of God.
When was the last time you were completely silent for half an hour? Are you experiencing the awesome presence of God? In quietness is strength.

Time to be silent
1 nothing to say
2 get in trouble
3 to listen
4 to worship God

Oh Lord my God when I in awesome wonder consider all you have made
Then sings my soul my Savior God to thee
How great you are!
