Sun 2 Sep 2018: Hosea 14 – Our Father’s Forgiveness

If you want to live well,
    make sure you understand all of this.
If you know what’s good for you,
    you’ll learn this inside and out.
God’s paths get you where you want to go.
    Right-living people walk them easily;
    wrong-living people are always tripping and stumbling.

 

This was the last service in our series on the poetic prophecies of Hosea.

Elisabeth led our worship and Terry our prayers.  Ernie read Hosea 14:1-9 and Roger applied it not only to Israel 10,000 years ago but also the world of 2018.
