    Hi Church,
    I miss worshiping and listening to the sermons in person, but God is making even Covid19 a thing of beauty in that…People are getting out and walking as families in the fresh air, Children are coloring with chalk words of encouragement on streets and side walks, the weather is wonderful to do these outside activities, people are showing kindness in stores, families are drawing closer, etc. I really feel this is a Romans 8:28 season we are going through! The devil meant it for harm to us, but God is bringing good out of this time, people are making up songs with instruments at home and going viral, there is even a group called the Sofa Singers an international internet choir! That I plan on joining. And the daily walking outside is creating a new habit for those who maybe never walked before, they have more than 21 days to make it a healthy new habit!

    I had a thought for Paul Eddy, wouldn’t it be great while the world is hunkered down, and stuck at home and searching for positive answers, to have a live internet class of his Bible 101. I loved this class 2-3 years ago and learned so much! I have atheist school friends and some family members who really would learn from this class! Paul has a way of teaching that is laid back, easy to follow, and listen to, he is kind, caring about others questions etc.

    This thought just came to me while awake trying to sleep, singing the song “Way maker, miracle worker, promise keeper, light in the darkness”. And as I sang it, the thought of how God shines in the darkest of times came to my mind, then I thought about my unsaved, unbelieving friends who don’t have the peace of God to lean on during this shut down, sick, stuck home time.

    The world needs to hear about Bible 101! What really started me thinking was a negative response about the Bible on F.B. giving a number of what Greg called “twisted scripture’s” as a reason not to believe in a loving God!

    I’m praying and thanking God for how He is bringing light and encouragement, during this Covid19 virus time. I even wonder if Jesus may be returning during this time. Amen. Love you all at Woodland Hills Church and pray for you all. Stay safe and of good cheer, God is still on the throne!😉✝️💗

    We need to have one of our old fashioned BBQ parties when this is over!

    I’ve been praying into “what does God want WHC to look like when this is over?” I feel such a stirring… I don’t think we are to look the same.
    Not that we’ve been doing things “wrong” I just think God is ushering in a new season for the church at large, but also for us at WHC.

      Janet,
      It will be wonderful when we can all come together again, one big party! Agreed! God is at work!
