“Levites and Orlando” – JLD

The audio recording is http://messiahechad.org/blog/25-jun-2016-h3m/ and the slides are http://messiahechad.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/25-Jun-2016-Slides.pdf . After an awesome praise and worship set, to include vocals from a guest worship singer, Pastor Duane summarized the torah portion Behaalotecha, In your making go up, Numbers 8:1 – 12:16. The key points were setting the Levites apart, observing the commandments, and not complaining as Miriam did… God does not like complaining. We then thanked God for our praise reports, and humbly submitted a few prayer requests. Lastly, Rabbi Jonathan spoke on the recent shooting at a gay club in Orlando, and Rabbi reminded us to embrace the person, yet shun the sin. Spoiler Alert… we do not take a stance on homosexuality. We take a stance on sin.
