An amazing story at a graveside service a few years ago at Bayside. I arrived a half hour early. What was unusual is that perhaps 75 people were already there. I noticed as I walked towards the grave one of the grown daughters was energetically going from small group to small group telling them her bad news. I soon found out, she was making sure everyone knew the story: the staff forgot to set up for the service. A mistake had been made, the grave was not dug, the canopy was not in place, and nothing was ready. Then I saw the staff frantically getting everything together, the gravedigger arrived with a wheelbarrow and shovel to dig the grave for the urn, another staff had hitched onto the canopy and was pulling it over, even though it had a flat tire. With two minutes to spare, everything was ready. Even the head of Bayview came and paid her respects at the service. I found out later that the gravedigger, during the service, walked over the hill, out of sight from the grave, got in the truck, /// and cried like a baby.

At SACC we believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God. Every Sunday the worship service includes a message from the Bible. My words are an attempt to understand and apply the Bible to our daily living. I post weekly sermons and other biblical messages on this page. May you find meaning and hope as you read through each message and seek to hear God's voice. Leave a comment to ask questions or inspire others with your insights.
