As I begin to write this blog, we are exactly three months away from Christmas! It seems like just yesterday that we were gearing up for summer camp, but here we are with October just around the corner. Fall is a great season though! Students have returned to their classes and routines, programs and activities have started and we still can enjoy some warm weather.
The other day, someone sent me a picture of a steaming tea cup with the words “TEA (n.) a hug in a cup”, beside it. Those of you who know me will know that I really do enjoy a cup of hot tea, with perhaps a good book and a blanket. Yes, it’s all about comfort!
In Sunday school we have been looking at Exodus and learning about Moses. Moses was given the great task of leading the Israelites out of Egypt, but felt ill-prepared and not confident for such a job. This was a calling definitely out of his comfort zone. As our children have been learning however, God provided the strength and reassurance that Moses needed. We see examples of God’s power, His instruction, and His love and care for us. Moses and the people saw that they could trust God, that He provided for them and that nothing was too big- not even the Red Sea! God truly is the greatest comforter!
As we begin to enjoy the short fall season, with our sweaters, warm drinks and good food; we can rest in the knowledge that God can and will walk through any circumstance with us.

Each week we post about a range of things from the Christian life, faith and more.
In these posts we hope you'll catch a glimpse of ordinary people who serve an extraordinary God.
