The good folks at Cokesbury, who supply most of our church's curriculum needs, occasionally sends me interesting mini-catalogs. One exclusively deals with the new Common English Study Bible and contains sample pages of study guides, pictures and various aspects of yet one more Bible that can help the average person connect more deeply with God and God's Word.

Life sure has changed since I was a teenager. Back in my youth, the normal sequence of events was to work hard and when chores were done we would ride our bikes, play basketball, baseball or some other outdoor activity. Times have changed. In the middle of summer you can now drive around town and see basketball courts empty, and have a hard time even spotting youth outdoors. Wednesday, August 8, 2018
Pastor Connie Barr's Aug. 5 message title was "God Brings Hope to Christians Through the Power of the Holy Spirit" taken from scripture base Romans 15:13. Our hope in Christ brings duties of consideration for one another, learning to serve by doing something for others. We need to be surrounded by love, not criticism. Agree to disagree peacefully. If you have the heart to criticize, you also have the heart to help. Jesus promotes unity. Wednesday, August 8, 2018
