Ancient Words

By Doug Bing, Washington Conference president

Have your kids ever kept singing a song so much that it gets stuck in your head? I remember when my children were younger, they would pester me at times by singing songs that they knew would get stuck in my head!

While attending church last week, the praise team sang a song written by Michael W. Smith titled “Ancient Words.” This song has been stuck in my head since then, but this isn’t a song that you wish you could stop singing in your head! Instead I have been happily humming it all week long.

One phrase of the song in particular catches my attention: “Holy words of our Faith, handed down to this age. Came to us through sacrifice. O heed the faithful words of Christ.”

Continue reading to see how Doug connects the lyrics of this song to Jesus' sacrifice for the human race!

Monte Saxby in Minnesota!

Skagit Adventist Academy math teacher Monte Saxby and his son Craig have cycled their way through North Dakota and now just have one more state standing between them and Chicago, Illinois! Monte and Craig have now cycled close to 1,800 miles from the shores of Puget Sound in Washington to the end of Lake Wobegon Trail in Albany, Minn. In Monte’s latest Instagram post, he reports that their days in Minnesota have so far been a cloudy and drizzly affair.

Despite the drizzles, Monte, Craig, and their support team are continuing on and doing well and are appreciating your continued prayers as they journey to Chicago.
