Sunnyvale News

 This is a great day as is every day. We had received a bit of bad news that some of our congregation had tested positive for the covid virus. That is always disturbing. My wife had her surgery the latter part of the week and put us in a predicament. She chose to listen to the service in the car as did several others. I seen more mask wearing (I also) than ever. For the first time ever I did not attend Sunday School class or shake hands before the service. It was good to have Janice back and we had a great choir. Jaice asked me to sing a song that I love: "How Long Has It Been". Scripture is Matthew 22:15 - 21 where the Pharisees and the Herodians were conspiring together to entrap Jesus. That is a big deal because the Pharisees would be the far right and the Herodians the far left. They wanted to ask Jesus a question the could only be answered by a yes or no. So they approached Jesus and ask, Is it lawful to give tribute unto Cesar or not? This had to do with the paying of taxes. The Herodians were Jews that were glad to be under Roman rule. The Pharisees hated paying any tax at all. This particular tax had to be paid with a silver coin called a Denari or value penny. Jesus ask whose image was on the coin? the answer was Cesar. Jesus then said render therefore unto Cesar the things which are Cesars and unto God the things that are God's. The whole atmosphere was quickly changed. Pay the tax with the coin which is Cesars. But what is made in the image of God.  That's right - you and me. Everything we are or will ever be belongs to God. Are you giving Him you best today.

 Sunday Evening our attendance was down a little. The choir was skimpy but powerful. No special music. Scripture was Leviticus 6:8 - 13 where God was giving instruction to Moses about the burnt offerings and the altar. He specifically mentions that the fire is not to go out. If you want to know what is wrong in our world I'm afraid it is that all across our nation the fire has gone out. Most of us have gone into a Church at one time or another and said boy that is a cold Church. What must be done. It only takes a spark to get a fire going. Just ask the people in California. So the solution is for you to bring the spark and you get another person on fire and then it quickly multiplies. How do we do that. Easy answer is not always easy. Prayer but do you take the time to pray. Devotions reading the Bible and other books to help. Then giving service to our fellow man.
