How great is our God, and worthy of the praise we lifted up in our Service. Rabbi Jonathan started us off by asking four questions on parsha Shlach, Send For Yourself, Numbers 13:1 – 15:41. Even after the lessons learned in Numbers, on trusting and obeying, did Israel believe they could claim the land God gave them? How did Israel treat godly voice of reason? Did Israel heed Moses’ direction? There are so many things to learn from torah! Then after praise reports and prayer, with the guidance of P. Duane, Brother Phillip brought forth his inaugural sermon at Messiah Echad. The topic was doing the will of God, with what God has given you. Amen and Happy Fourth of July (Independence Day).
