The above video is the livestream of the Eastland services for July 7th, 2020, but the video should start at the beginning of the sermon. Our normal camera got knocked out during a storm, and so the video is from a backup webcam.

I know these are uncertain times. We have a global pandemic where no one seems to know anything. We have mass protests and riots in the streets of our major cities. There is a general feeling of unrest, of a pot slowing reaching the boiling point.

Are you worried that President Trump will be re-elected, and what that might mean? It is not for you to know the times and the seasons. The Most High Rules the Kingdom of Men, and gives it to whomever he pleases.
Are you worried what will happen if the Democrats take power? It is not for you to know the times and the seasons. The Most High Rules the Kingdom of Men, and gives it to whomever he pleases.
