“Now when all the nation had finished crossing the Jordan, the Lord spoke to Joshua, saying ‘Take for yourselves twelve men from the people, one man from each tribe, and command them, saying, ‘Take up for yourselves twelve stones from here out of the middle of the Jordan, from the place where the priests’ feet are standing firm, and carry them over with you and lay them down in the lodging place where you will lodge tonight.” So Joshua called the twelve men whom he had appointed from the sons of Israel, one man from each tribe; and Joshua said to them, ‘Cross again to the ark of the Lord your God into the middle of the Jordan, and each of you take up a stone on his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Israel. Let this be a sign among you, so that when your children ask later, saying, ‘What do these stones mean to you?’ then you shall say to them, ‘Because the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord; when it crossed the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off.’ So these stones shall become A MEMORIAL to the sons of Israel forever.”” – Joshua 4.1-7 (NASB)
As we move forward into a new year, a new season as a church family, it is important to take a moment to pause and remember where we have been… to tell stories of the amazing things that the Lord has done among us and how He has brought us to this present moment.
This Sunday, Kevan will be taking us through several such stories, highlighting a few key points along the way which demonstrate the then and now Word of the Lord for DCC. Don’t miss it.
