First “Comfort” Podcast in the Books/ You Can Still Go to Israel!

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

The first “Comfort’ podcast is in the books. I would have loved for it to be on a calm night for the Colleys, but we were in two cities and I was in a panic-time at the nursing home with sick parents up until podcast time and afterwards, as well. (My supper was at 10:45 last night!…but I could skip a few meals and be just fine!) But, on the other hand, I think God did (and always does) provide just what we need when we need it, as His children. I think the break from care-giving at 7 pm last night to study His comfort in trials was an immense blessing for me, personally. 

But it’s surely not about me. You are patient and encouraging, though, and your comments were the best part of the podcast, by far. We’re thankful for Celine, taking time from the busy-ness of her week to be part of the podcast last night. She is a real student of the Word. I’m also grateful for your comments, pictures, and strength from afar. Below are a couple of notes from Virginia and Florida, respectively. Both represent new groups. It’s just a huge 21st century blessing that we can be living lives for Him—in HIm—from different geographical and logistical perspectives and still study together. I think Paul would have had a celebration of epic proportions if He could have studied with people this way. Let’s praise Him for this. Here are the notes:

While Cindy said there wasn’t a lot of comfort, I was thankful that we were able to see that the brethren responded in the way that helped the brother in 1 Corinthians 5.It also was comforting to see the comfort and encouragement that Titus, Paul and the brethren at Corinth experienced because of the repentance of EVERYONE involved.What’s interesting is Paul said in 2 Cor. 7:12 that it was “that our care for you in the sight of God might appear unto you”.Are we eager to rescue those that need rescuing? God is glorified when we do what HE wants us to. It makes sense because He is the ONLY One that provides forgiveness and salvation.Therefore we will be comforted and rejoice as 2 Cor. 7:13 says! Let’s look out for each other! I am thankful your encouragement helped me get this far this month!



I just finished listening to the Digging Deep podcast (we have a few hurricane days off school this week, so I’m doing some hurricane cleaning. 🙂 We have about a dozen of who are working through Digging Deep – For most of us, it’s our first time (including me!).I really didn’t know what to expect, but I’m grateful for the real life application and the connections we’re making to the actual city and people of Corinth. I’ve not done a study like this before. I’m grateful.

Lastly, it’s not too late to sign up for Israel. We have a few spots left!  Departure is October 31st. Just contact me if you need details. iI you are going to Israel and you are a digger and you want a  cute t-shirt  that says “Digging Deep-Israel” or some similar tag, let me know in a message in the next week. I’m thinking of having a few printed up. If you do want one, I’ll have to price them later, when I know how many, etc…Also, if you are going, please join the facebook group “Digging Deep in Israel.” That’s where we will primarily communicate, post pictures and share necessary info while getting ready to leave and while on the trip. Podcast will be live from Israel on November 7th at 8:00 am CST.  (It will be afternoon there.)  I think it will be full of comfort and I know it will have a beautiful backdrop! 

If you’re going to Israel and you have a DD shirt or hoodie (any year), please bring it and wear it on the 7th. We want a group picture, of course.
