A Blessing Before Sabbatical - from Pastor Rob
Prayer Circle        
"Now may our God and Father himself and our Lord Jesus direct our way to you. And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, just as we abound in love for you. And may he so strengthen your hearts in holiness that you may be blameless before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints." (1 Thessalonians 3:11-13).
        I wanted my final column before a 4-month Sabbatical to be a word of blessing. Candy, Igor, Henry, Merone, and I will be away and in all likelihood not see people from HillSong until September 17. However, I know our God and Father will guide us back. And when we return we will have the experiences of the summer affixed to us, tattooed on our psyches and souls.
         Furthermore, God will be at work within the church. People will make new spiritual discoveries and will grow in Christ. New ministry will be birthed in my absence. New people will come. I hope this happens. I am sure it will happen.
        These things I pray:
