St. Patrick’s Parade Wash-out


Oh noooo! It happens on occasion. Our scheduled outing to the Hermosa Beach St. Patrick’s Day Parade was rained out. (Fortunately, they rescheduled it for next Saturday.)

    Or get some volunteers from Hope Chapel to hand out “cups of cold water” wearing Hope Chapel t-shirts. (Matthew 10:42)

    Or organize the Hope Chapel Marathon Evangelical Team. I can see it now, a bunch of runners with Gospel themed t-shirts or t-shirts with the URL to Stone the Preacher or Hope Chapel.

    Matthew 10:42 (KJV)
    And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

    1 Corinthians 9:24 (KJV)

    Hebrews 12:1 (KJV)
    Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
