Guest Preacher: Ps. Paul Camac

Proverbs 20:4
The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.

  • Autumn: Mid-life 44-66
  • Winter: Elder Years 66-88

Jeremiah 8:20
The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.


Knowing your life’s seasons – every deed is a seed…

  • Spring 0-22: We learn and sow our values
  • Summer 22-44: We test and grow our values
  • Autumn 44-66: We reap and enjoy our values
  • Winter 66-88: We pass on our values


  • Two people who knew their season
  • Served with purpose in their winter years


Luke 2:25-25
Now there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon, and this man was righteous and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him.

And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. And he came in the Spirit into the temple, and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him according to the custom of the Law, he took him up in his arms and blessed God and said, “Lord, now you are letting your servant[a] depart in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel.”

And his father and his mother marveled at what was said about him. And Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, “Behold, this child is appointed for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign that is opposed (and a sword will pierce through your own soul also), so that thoughts from many hearts may be revealed.”

  • Is easily and timely led by the Spirit
  • As a father, he passes on his values
  • Has the capacity to bless and speak Christ-purpose into lives
  • Knows his time – when to let go


Luke 2:36-38
There was a prophetess, Anna, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was very old, and had lived with her husband for seven years after her marriage, and then as a widow to the age of eighty-four. She did not leave the [area of the] temple, but was serving and worshiping night and day with fastings and prayers. She, too, came up at that very moment and began praising and giving thanks to God, and continued to speak of Him to all who were looking for the redemption and deliverance of Jerusalem.
