Looking Ahead – A Message from Rev. Dr. Russ Ritchel, Jr.



Dear Friends,

I must confess that I have often seen gratitude as an obligation of discipleship-something I must do. However, as I have been preparing for our service this week and my message on Luke 17:11-19, I am coming to see gratitude as an opportunity. I am looking forward to sharing with you how my perspective has changed. As we gather together for worship on this Sunday before thanksgiving, I am excited to share with you what I am learning. Plan on joining us! Also, take some time to read a Sun Sentinel article, accessible HERE, that explores an important ministry that Reverend Chris Benek mentioned in his sermon this past Sunday. We are grateful for the attention to this important ministry. On another note, remember that this Sunday – November 22, 2015 – Las Olas is closed to vehicular traffic between Andrews Ave. and 15th Avenue. You’ll want to plan on a few extra minutes to get to services on time, but also plan on walking Las Olas with our fellow citizens! It will be a great Sunday. I know you won’t want to miss it!

Yours in His service,
Russ Ritchel
