Weekly Letter From Our Pastor

Still Listening - 12 copies remaining
     In just (2) weeks we welcome Dr. Susan Vitalis to Living Water as our guest preacher. We still have 12 copies of her highly acclaimed book, "Still Listening," available for purchase this Sunday.

"Give it All"
     This week all who are Living Water will be receiving a letter from me, inviting you to consider your church in your 2018 plans for charitable giving. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read it, pray about the request and then return the 2018 Commitment Card on or before Sunday, November 12th.

Sunday Message
     On Tuesday of this week I traveled south to the Pepin area to meet Yata. Yata is the church council president of a congregation whose attendance has dwindled to the point where the difficult decision was made to close their doors and liquidate the property. Looking over their inventory for items that might be of use to Living Water, I asked, "How did you ever get a name like Yata?"
     Smiling, he replied, "Back in 5th grade, for our history lesson on Mexico, I was the lucky guy who broke the piñata. One of my buddies said, "Nice job, Yata! And it stuck...and still sticks, 55 years later!"
     Labels. Good or bad, helpful or not we collect and wear them our entire lives. How about you? What labels do you wear? What do you think of them? Any you'd like to change or ditch completely? What if I told you Jesus has something for you - something more powerful and more defining and more freeing than any label you will ever wear? I hope you can join us this Sunday as we welcome new ministry partner families and continue our Fall preaching series, "Overcomer: Labels."

Living for Christ!

-Ned

LW Window Clings Are Here!

Clings available this Sunday - thanks!

New Women's Group:
"Living A Life Of Worship"

Starting in October, Lindsey Kolpack will be leading a new group through Sarah Young's, "Living a Life of Worship," an excellent resource for discovering how thankfulness and worship always open the door for entering into God's presence and blessings. Even the most routine part of the day can be a spiritual act of worship when you are living close to God, and seeing from His perspective will allow you to truly be able to "give thanks in all circumstances" (1 Thessalonians 5:18).  Sign up at Clipboard Central to purchase a book & become part of this 8-week study!
Baby Liam

Parents Josh & Sara have created a Caring Bridge site to give all of us who love and care about them, a way to keep updated on events in Rochester, MN.  To follow progress and send notes of encouragement and support, simply logon to CaringBridge.org  and search for:  Liam Odin Huseth
