Sunday Funday

Coincidence is God's way of staying anonymous.
Brian and I decided to attend the local Methodist church here in Williston.  We picked an interesting Sunday to attend as the VBS was running the service.  After there was a yummy pot luck (Methodists know how to cook).  After chit-chatting with some folks the pastor's wife came up to Brian and said "I hear you play the organ.  *sigh* We have been praying for help in our music department for sometime."  Brian responds with, "Here I am." She goes on to talk about how they need help in the pulpit as well.  Here is where I sell myself a little.  Tell her I have preached some and am a lay speaker in my church back home.  "Well, we need someone for the 21st of August when were are on vacation. I'll talk to my husband to make sure."

So, here were are.  Only in ND for 1week and BAM we are taking over a church :).  I am 100% OK with being here and this cements the fact that we are MEANT to be here.  I am reminded of the hymn "Here I Am Lord".  Here are the words...

I, the Lord of sea and sky,
I have heard My people cry.
All who dwell in dark and sin,
My hand will save.
I who made the stars of night,
I will make their darkness bright.
Who will bear My light to them?
Whom shall I send?

Here I am Lord, Is it I Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night.
I will go Lord, if You lead me.
I will hold Your people in my heart
.
I, the Lord of snow and rain,
I have born my peoples pain.
I have wept for love of them, They turn away.
I will break their hearts of stone,
Give them hearts for love alone.
I will speak My word to them,
Whom shall I send?

Here I am Lord, Is it I Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night.
I will go Lord, if You lead me.
I will hold Your people in my heart.

I, the Lord of wind and flame,
I will tend the poor and lame.
I will set a feast for them,
My hand will save
Finest bread I will provide,
Till their hearts be satisfied.
I will give My life to them,
Whom shall I send?

Here I am Lord, Is it I Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night.
I will go Lord, if You lead me.
I will hold Your people in my heart.
