Hello members and friends of Crown of Glory,
This week we saw an amazing display of forgiveness as Brandt Jean told Amber Guyger, the police officer convicted of his older brother's murder, that he forgave her and requested permission to give her a hug.
As you read through this week's chapter of The Story you see a remarkably similar display of forgiveness as Joseph tells his brother's "Come close to me" and repays the hurt they had brought into his life with kindness.
Many years separate Brandt and Joseph, but their ability to forgive came from the same source. "Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you" (Ephesians 4:32).
May God bless your reading this week and our worship this Sunday as we see our Savior-God working in Joseph's life and ours.
Worship and Bible Study
Have you ever been let down by people close to you? Have you ever felt let down and abandoned by God? If there was ever someone who seemed to have the right to feel that way, it would be Joseph. Yet Joseph did not display a bitter or vengeful attitude. This week we'll see what it was that gave Joseph, and gives us, hope in the darkness of isolation.

Envy is similar to greed in that it can never be satisfied. While a greedy person is obsessed with things, envy directs its energy against another person. It's not difficult to find examples of envy in the Bible. With a little introspection, it will not be difficult to uncover evidence of envy in our own hearts. This week we'll look at what the Bible has to say about envy. Join us this Monday, October 7, at 6:00pm.
The children are going through the same chapter of The Story as will be covered in worship and Bible study. Younger children (Pre-K through grade 6) meet in the fellowship building. Students in grades 7-8 join the adult study in the church with follow up in their confirmation class during the week.
Our quarterly congregational update will take place on Sunday, October 27, after the worship service. Plans are to include a presentation on revised plans for our building project. More information on this and other coming events will be provided in next week's email.
