SEASONS OF THE FAMILY, March 7-8

SEASONS OF THE FAMILY 
Biblical Wisdom for the Christian Home
Speaker: Douglas Wilson
March 7-8





As pastor and author Voddie Baucham Jr. has observed, "God has not left us to wander aimlessly in the wilderness as we raise our children. He has given us a blueprint for multigenerational faithfulness. That blueprint is expressed throughout the Bible…”


Come join us as pastor and author Douglas Wilson opens God's Word and helps us to understand God's "blueprint for multigenerational faithfulness" in the different seasons of life.




Location
On  Friday evening and Saturday morning we will meet at the Wenatchee Brethren Baptist Church located at 535 Okanogan Ave, Wenatchee, WA.

To pique your interest, here are a few quotes from one of Doug's many books on marriage and family:

“As Christians, our central concern should be to have our worship of God pervade everything we do. But if worship applied relates to how we live, then it must also relate to where we live...”
 “The constitution of a biblical home consists of faith, hope and love. Love is not to be understood as mere sentiment, but rather self-sacrificing obedience to the Word of God—with a whole heart. This can be quite an elevating and inspiring concept until there are dishes to be done...”
“The task confronting parents is not to get children to conform to the standard the parents believe to be biblical. The task is to bring the children to love that biblical standard. At the very center of childrearing, therefore, is the question of inculcating loyalty. A covenant family cannot stay together without loyalty. But loyalty is a function of deep gratitude, and gratitude is a function of grace. Many parents, therefore, need to learn what it means to lighten up to the glory of God.”
Douglas Wilson in, My Life For Yours: A Walk Through the Christian Home.

New Office for King's Cross Church

We are very thankful and happy to announce that we have opened up a new King's Cross Church office in downtown Wenatchee. We call it "Shiloh" in prayerful hopes that it will function both as a place of peace and a "beachhead" for the invasion of our beloved city. Shiloh is located in the NW corner on the second story of the historic Fuller-Quigg building at 103 Palouse St.

Semper Reformanda Y'all



"The Reformation was a time when men went blind, staggering drunk because they had discovered, in the dusty basement of late medievalism, a whole cellar full of fifteen-hundred-year-old, two-hundred proof Grace–bottle after bottle of pure distilate of Scripture, one sip of which would convince anyone that God saves us single-handedly. The word of the Gospel–after all those centuries of trying to lift yourself into heaven by worrying about the perfection of your bootstraps–suddenly turned out to be a flat announcement that the saved were home before they started…Grace has to be drunk straight: no water, no ice, and certainly no ginger ale; neither goodness, nor badness, not the flowers that bloom in the spring of super spirituality could be allowed to enter into the case." (Fr. Robert Farrar Capon - 1925-2013)

Pleasant Inns


“The Christian doctrine of suffering explains, I believe, a very curious fact about the world we live in. The settled happiness and security which we all desire, God withholds from us by the very nature of the world: but joy, pleasure, and merriment, He has scattered broadcast. We are never safe, but we have plenty of fun, and some ecstasy. It is not hard to see why. The security we crave would teach us to rest our hearts in this world and oppose an obstacle to our return to God: a few moments of happy love, a landscape, a symphony, a merry meeting with our friends, a bath or a football match, have no such tendency. Our Father refreshes us on the journey with some pleasant inns, but will not encourage us to mistake them for home.” (C. S. Lewis)
