This Week at Twin Cities Church!

Hey everybody! I’ve been hanging out in Oklahoma this past week to spend time with my mom. It’s been three months now since my dad went to heaven, and it’s so strange to be here and not hear his voice or see him come out the back door with oxygen bottle in hand leaning on his cane for support. It has been good to be here and think about the man who brought me into this world. I am grateful for this time.

This weekend we’re going to talk about a man who made foolish choices concerning money and possessions. I was reflecting on my dad, and even though he ended his life with very little in the way of worldly wealth or status, he was a man who made wise choices concerning what he had. He invested his life in things that really mattered to him and really made a difference in the lives of his kids.

As I’ve gotten older, I realize just how much like my dad I am. I was imprinted by him. There’s no other way to say it. He could only give me who he was.

In the same way that our earthly parents help shape our lives, our heavenly Father also imprints us. As we hang with Him, we are imprinted by who He is. It’s only natural. One of the best ways to experience God’s person is to hang with Him and one of the best places to hang with Him is in church.

I hope you’ll be at Twin Cities this Sunday. We’ll be looking at the “The Parable of the Rich Fool.” You can read the story in Luke 12:13-21. Hope you’ll make the wise choice about what you do with your Sunday.

Having my heart captured with you,

Pastor Ron
