Online Magazine: Edition 67

Autumn (Mar-May 2021)

Welcome to the Sixty-seventh Edition of the Online Magazine of the Thornleigh Seventh-day Adventist Church.



It is hard to believe that is has been about a year now that our world has been in a pile of pandemic pain.  We can start to see some light at the end of the tunnel, with the various vaccines starting to be produced and administered, but we are still a long way from being back to normal.

The bible tells us that God is "able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine" (Ephesians 3:20, NIV).  So, may I encourage you to ask and to keep on asking? Pray that God will bless the work of our health professionals and government officials and that they will be granted strength and wisdom.  In particular, pray for a special blessing on the efficacy of the various vaccines that are being rolled out around the world.
