Seminar... and more!

There is something I hadn't discussed here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).  It has to do with something that happened last Saturday, January 16th, 2016.

At 10:00 a.m., I met with my friend, C.  Well, to be honest, I arrived at my church building, just a few minutes before she did.

Like in the past, we sat beside each other for a seminar.  This time, it was regarding Hermeneutics (interpretation of the Bible).

The last two (2) seminars we attended together were led by brother, W... who was in the past, a university professor here in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, plus a pastor in Indonesia (after converting to Christianity from Islam), many years ago.  This time, our pastor Tom Perry, was our teacher/preacher!

My friend, C and I enjoy the seminar.  And, it seemed everyone else in attendance did, also!

Of course, learning more and more, about God's Word, the Bible, is helpful, also!

A Bible verse was quoted on our paperwork, at the beginning of the seminar.

It was, 2 Timothy 2:15, "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."

Yes, just as it says, we need to study to show ourselves approved unto God, someone that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  God's truth.

When I saw this verse, I let my friend, C know that my now deceased husband Gordon, had written that same verse on the inside cover of a small Bible he gave me as a gift.  It's what I carry with me to worship and/or learn.

It touched my heart.

After our seminar was over, we enjoyed time together.  Not just visiting.

Our group of believers enjoyed lunch!  It was supplied by our church family, to everyone who attended. 

We were thankful. 

Thankful for the knowledge we gained.

Thankful for the time spent together.

Thankful for the food and fun time we enjoyed.

Thank You, Lord... for providing for us, in so many ways.


Until next time...
