This week when we gathered, Tracy M. taught out of the first three chapters of Hosea. God calls Hosea to take to himself a wife of harlotry. The children she bears are given significant names - Jezreel (in reference to the violence done is Jezreel), "No Mercy", and "Not My People". We see God's judgment on the house of Israel. The end of chapter 2, however, displays God's mercy as he calls "Not My People" "You are my people". We as Gentiles have hope in this mercy of God that extends to the nations.

Tracy challenged the body to consider our interaction with God's plan for the nations, specifically how we can 1) pray, 2) give, and 3) go.

Next week Dr. and Mrs. Black will join us for our morning gathering to speak of the work of the Church in Ethiopia. We will follow with a celebration of the Lord's Supper at the Taylor's.

Please remember that as we approach Easter, we will be looking to collect offerings for Annie Armstrong - money to support missions in North America. Our goal for this year is $2,000.
