Don’t eat alone if at all possible; being with people and enjoying good conversation and laughter is important for digestion.
Sunday, 8-31 is Fifth Sunday singing and covered dish dinner. Oh boy, more fun and food. It is another “eat-arama!”
Mary Haley served as Worship Leader on the 17th while Alford Havens and David Cleveland were ushers.
Pat and Lisa Leatherwood along with Brenda Horn made a trip to Granbury to see Joe Horn who is in the hospital. Joe had a second procedure to correct problems after the first surgery, but is doing much better. Keep praying till Joe is back home in Dublin!
Virginia Stephens had more stories to tell Sunday, she has an unending supply of great-grandchildren.
Virginia was helped to stand on a chair at the Dublin Rodeo Museum on 8-16 and burn a brand onto the wall, it is the “Trigger S.” It is a unique brand, but I was afraid several of us were going to wear that brand before Virginia stopped waving it around. In her defense she was telling the brand’s history.
Neva Smith was happy to say she saw her youngest granddaughter graduate from Texas A&M University and we celebrate with her.
Our guests for services on 8-17 were Paul and Kathy Stonum and their pretty daughter Emma. Also returning to visit was Vicky Lyon and her mother Annette.
Rev. Ken Lunsford preached on “Great Faith.” He based his lesson on the book of Matthew 15:10-20 and 21-28.
The defining questions of is what do you believe about Jesus? This question will determine your values, many of your attitudes and your general orientation toward life.
You could believe Jesus was a great teacher like Confucius or a great historical figure like Gandhi. But if you believe that Jesus is who He said He is, the Son of God, then He has a claim on you. Jesus Himself asked, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” Simon Peter answered the question, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven.”
Many people call themselves Christians, but live their lives a different way. They live no different than atheists. They never truly examine their souls.
I say to them, “Let me from this day forward by the grace of God live as the person that Jesus Christ has called me to be.” Amen!
