AOC Sunday Report - First Sunday after Trinity

The AOC Sunday Report is RIGHT HERE!
Happy Father's Day and First Sunday after Trinity!

The AOC Sunday Report is RIGHT HERE!

Fathers Day
Today is a day set aside to remember and pray for our fathers, those who are with us and those who have gone before us and brought us to this point in our lives.

Fathers Day is a day we celebrate the role of fathers in our lives.  It is normally a day of joy and congratulations, maybe a little sadness as we remember those of our fathers who have gone before us.  But, it is more than that, it is a reminder of what a father’s role should be.  Scripture puts the father at the head of the family, not as a dictator, but using Jesus for as an example, to give his all for his family; up to and including his earthly life if needed.  Done right, it is not easy; not done right it is not acceptable.  It is a special responsibility.  A father is to be the spiritual head of the family, a provider of both spiritual and earthly needs, the protector, commander, president, judge and most of all - the leader.  To lead, you must be ahead of those you lead.  Lead means, follow me; not, head that way.  A father must live his life for his family.  The role comes with privileges, but the privileges are granted only to those who fulfill the responsibilities.  Those responsibilities are awesome, but the rewards incredible.  Yet, as a father, I assure you, in the words of Paul, we all fall short.  But that does not mean we should give up, but rather we must redouble our efforts.

First Sunday after Trinity
We have some really really good sermons today from Bishops Jerry, Roy and Dennis, as well as Revs Jack and Bryan.  They all cover some of the same ground, but their perspectives are so different, you will find little repetition!

There are always a lot of people who need your prayer.  Today is no exception.  Kurt is retaining fluid, Shamu has an infection, Jimmy, Mary, Bob and Michael need the cancer driven from their bodies.  Seemingly unconnected, but they are not.   Each needs your prayer for God's Help and Grace!

There is an EPIC week ahead for you with God's Help and Guidance.  Take what is offered and enjoy what you can.
