See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God[/blockquote]
Regardless of our biological age we all have the privilege of belonging to God’s family, which is Church. God is our Father, we are His children. We are very pleased and joyful to have at our Russian Gospel Temple in the city of San Francisco, people of different ages, from newborns to wise older sisters and brothers with rich life experiences.
It is truly amazing that not only generations of fathers and children, grandfathers, grandmothers and grandchildren live in peace next to each other, but they function as one body and serve each other with love. That was the original plan of God for His Church.
It is my honor to say special thanks to the older generation. Thank you, dear mothers and fathers, for your loyalty and a bright example of living in God. This year of 2013, we have one more opportunity to give honor and gratitude and pay special attention to our older sisters and brothers during the service «Banner of Faith».
May God bless you abundantly. May you «still bear fruit in old age, stay fresh and green». (Psalm 92:14)
With love and gratitude
Pastor of the RGT Yuri Georgiev
