There were many Lederhosen and Dirndls, as well as an alphorn and accordion. Before the start of the third day of Tomball German Heritage Festival, people gathered at a German/English prayer service in Tomball, Texas. They sang praises to God (Grosser Gott, wir loben Dich etc.), listened to the scriptures, prayed and listened to a sermon in two languages.
"Christianity is not about our best life now, but it's the story of Christ’s life, His death on the Cross and resurrection on the third day, the miracle of the empty tomb, and the coming down of the Holy Spirit who resides in all of us who have been baptized and who believe in Him.
The big picture is that, thanks to Christ’s work on the cross, your sins and mine have been forgiven and you and I have eternal life in His name.
Und nun, möge der Friede Gottes, der alles Verstehen übersteigt, eure Herzen und eure Gedanken in der Gemeinschaft mit Christus Jesus bewahren..."
And some wonderful people encouraged Chris greatly:
- "Keep on preaching the Word, it's not popular, but the right thing to do".
