Saturday Snapshot — Summer in the Mountains

Summer has brought longer days and shorter nights, warmer air, afternoon showers, and beautiful fireflies to the mountains of North Carolina.

Last weekend, Darren Thomas led a seminar titled, “Jesus, Don’t You Care?”  Darren spoke about how worrying puts us in places that God never intended for us.

In  the picture below, he’s illustrating the umbrella of faith.  We must cast our cares on the Lord and trust Him with the outcomes.  The umbrella of faith is a protective covering for us.

Darren explained that when we worry, it’s like walking around in fear without the umbrella of faith.

By the way, before opening the umbrella inside the auditorium, he assured everyone, that the Bible does not tell us anywhere that it’s bad luck to do so.  : )

This week Dr. Woodrow Kroll led a 5-day Intensive Bible Training seminar.  This is a picture of him with Betty, who has attended his seminars for 21 of the 23 years he’s been teaching at The Cove. That’s one committed student!

  1. Thank you for your beautiful thoughts here. The Pictor of the entrance reveals the gorgeous grounds at the Cove. The chapel hidden away in the beautiful foliage is so inviting to come and worship and pray. Thank you
