Fourth in the “Nomads and Pilgrims” Series,
Delivered March 6, 2005 by Rev. John Schmidt.

Theme: Joy in the present has a past and a future. It looks back to our experience of God in the past, and to God’s faithfulness to others in the past. It looks forward to the future in the hope that God will continue to be good and loving to us. This security, being in harmony with what God is doing in the world, gives us a place for joy.
