Amen on Mya leading us as we sang praises to the King of kings, He is our everything, and we will adore Him. As we near the High Holy Days, we were blessed with Mitch doing his inaugural torah portion at Messiah Echad, Ki Tavo, When You Come In, Deuteronomy 26:1 – 29:8. Big idea is we worship a loving God, who wants to bless us, and we should allow said blessings to overtake our lives. Praise reports included overcoming addictions, and pray requests will keep the cycle of healing going… Amen. In the main message, Rabbi Jonathan gave a nod to his plaid suit, which the Rebbetzin thinks is 1980’s style but it is not. We digress; the drash was about the loving our neighbor part of our Mission and Vision. So do that, be living waters to people, and invite someone to our High Holy Days.

Praise and worship included a style of music from our past… good ole recorded tracks! Yet even in that, the glory of the Lord sure filled our place. Amen. Sister Shandilyn delivered a wonderful prophecy on being keys to open doors, after which Rabbi Jonathan spoke on Ki Teitzei, “When you go forth”, from Deuteronomy 21:10 – 25:19. And since we have permission to voluntarily obey torah, reviewed the instruction to respect captives, avoid cross dressing, not send escaped slaves back, treat foreigners well, and never deal falsely. Then in the sermon, Guest Pastor Nate Cashdan from Fervent Embrace Ministries, spoke on Father God’s Heart being for the orphans (Romans 8:14-18). So at the least, please pray for them, and catch us next week for monthly oneg. Blessings, and the slides are http://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/17-Sept-2016-Slides.pdf .
