USA – Trouble in this world December 27, 2019
We were blessed to have the Harvest Kids and adults at the Riverstone Climbing Gym in the morning and roller skating in the evening in Burlington. Lot’s of teaching opportunities throughout the day. The training at the climbing gym focuses on the safe and proper use of your equipment and includes understanding the importance of communication with the person that will be your “belay” – the person responsible to hold the rope for your ascent and descent on the wall.
“Belay” – The securing of a person or a safety rope to an anchor point (as during mountain climbing); to make fast; to fasten down.
Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.” (Deuteronomy 6:4-9)
“God is our refuge and strength, and ever-present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1)
