When Jesus was talking about the end times in Mark 13:7-8 he said, When you hear about wars and threats of wars, don’t be afraid. These things will have to happen first, but that isn’t the end. Nations and kingdoms will go to war against each other. There will be earthquakes in many places, and people will starve to death. But this is just the beginning of troubles. These things sound scary but Jesus tells us not to be afraid. Bad stuff will happen until he comes again. There is good news in 2 Peter 3:13, But God has promised us a new heaven and a new earth, where justice will rule. We are really looking forward to that! In the meantime, we can pray through the TV news or newspaper.
Dancing is one way to worship God. Psalm 149:3 says, Praise his name by dancing and playing music on harps and tambourines. Unfortunately most dance classes do not glorify God. Mount Pleasant Baptist Church has a dance group called Soul to Sole which runs weekly classes during the school terms. It is for girls and guys in years 2 to 11 but older teens are welcome to apply as well. They have a free concert on Saturday, 1st December from 6:15pm - 8:30pm at 497 Marmion Street, Booragoon, Western Australia. You can find more details about Soul to Sole here.
