Charles Ross: "... we have not to deal with a
vacillating Saviour, who loves his people today and hates them
tomorrow—a Saviour in whom I could have no confidence, and in whose
existence I do not believe—but we have to deal with One, who ‘is the
same yesterday, today, and for ever,’ and who says: ‘I am Jehovah, I
change not; therefore, ye sons of Jacob are not consumed’" (The Inner
Sanctuary, p. 21).
Announcements (subject to God’s will):
After a week of self-examination, confessing members
in good standing are called to partake of the sacrament of the Lord’s
Supper this morning. Your participation in the Lord’s Supper is in
part a witness that you repent of your sins, believe that Jesus Christ
is your righteousness, and desire to live a new and godly life. As this
heavenly food can be taken to one’s judgment (I Cor. 11:28-30) and as
the common reception of this food is a confession of doctrinal oneness
(Acts 2:42), the elders supervise the partaking of the sacrament.
Visitors from other denominations must request permission to partake
prior to communion.
This Friday, Rev. & Mary Stewart, Martyn McGeown, and
Douglas Stewart plan to travel to S. Wales where Rev. Stewart

Order 20) in the morning. Rev. Stewart will preach in the evening.
