Out of love for one another…….
We are currently requiring everyone attending the Sunday morning worship assembly and Wednesday evening Bible study to wear a mask in keeping with the Health Departments guidelines. We thank you for your consideration of and care for others. Masks are available if you need one.
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:34-35 ESV)
Scripture of the Week
“And this is His command to believe in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as He commanded us. Those who obey His commands live in Him, and He in them. And this is how we know that He lives in us: we know it by the Spirit He gave us.” 1 John 3:23-24
Something to Smile About
An elderly lady walked into a pet store, found a parrot and asked the owner if she could buy it. The owner said, ―Heck no! That parrot has a bad mouth! Trust me, you do not want that parrot!
She said, ―I can teach it good manners, and she bought it.
When she got home the parrot said a bad word, so she put it in the freezer for 10 seconds.
She took it out and said, ―Did you learn your lesson?
It said another bad word so she put it back in for 30 seconds. She took it out and asked if it learned its lesson yet.
The parrot said ―Brrrrr…yes I learned my lesson, but, what did the chicken do?
Think About It
“Imagine yourself as a living house. God comes in to rebuild that house. At first, perhaps, you can understand what He is doing. He is getting the drains right and stopping the leaks in the roof and so on; you knew that those jobs needed doing and so you are not surprised. But presently He starts knocking the house about in a way that hurts abominably and does not seem to make any sense. What on earth is He up to? The explanation is that He is building quite a different house from the one you thought of – throwing out a new wing here, putting on an extra floor there, running up towers, making courtyards. You thought you were being made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace. He intends to come and live in it Himself.” ― C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
