Hales Chapel Family,
We had a great time and a great turnout for the Fall Festival. Special thanks to Tina, members of the Home Missions Team, Dakota and the youth for all of their hard work! Unfortunately I did not do a good job of resisting the temptation of the candy during the Festival—or at home. I guess once a year will be okay to eat candy. J

Devotional Thought: Is 48:17–18 17 This is what the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel says: I am Yahweh your God, who teaches you for your benefit, who leads you in the way you should go. 18 If only you had paid attention to My commands. Then your peace would have been like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea. I am struck by the sadness of verse 18, “If only you had paid attention to My commands.” If only. God was teaching and was leading but Israel failed to follow. If only. They could have had peace and righteousness. If only. God teaches and leads us daily though His Word. If only. God teaches and leads us daily as we pray. If only. God teaches and leads us daily as we observe the godly lives of others. If only. “If only you had paid attention to My commands.” Are there commands I am not paying attention to today? Will there be commands I will not pay attention to in the future? If only.
In His Steps,
