Timing is the Father’s Business

June 9, 2019: Acts 1, 2.


It was a big day! The Fairfield satellite joined the main church for “Church on the Lawn.” There were games and a potluck after the service.

It was also the day of the “Cary Reunion.” Since there were plenty of musicians in Mt. Pleasant, we took the Sunday off for the reunion.

This reunion is for the descendants of my father’s parents. Dad had 12 brothers and sisters – it’s a big reunion!

We’ve lost 10 of the original siblings. Only 1 sister and my mom represented the generation of great-grandparents. My cousins and I are grandparents. It’s difficult to keep up with each other and all of those names!

One uncle’s oxygen level was low and he couldn’t come. We wonder if he will make it next year.

Acts 1:7, “He told them, ‘You don’t get to know the time. Timing is the Father’s business.'” The Message

It’s Pentecost Sunday! The day the Holy Spirit fell on the 120 in the upper room. It’s the reason the 2019 “Relevant” Bible Reading Guide switched from reading in the Old Testament to the book of Acts.

I’m glad our church was together in one place, even though we missed it. I’m grateful we got together with many of our cousins and their families. We may need to rename the reunion the “Cary Cousins Reunion!”
