Adam’s Animals – Fun Facts About God’s Creation just released this spring!
Is your church running a Vacation Bible School (VBS) program this summer based on the Weird Animals curriculum? http://www.group.com/vbs/weird-animals
Consider using Adam’s Animals along with the accompanying craft book, Super Simple Animal Crafts http://bit.ly/SuperSimpleAnimalCrafts in your Sunday School program leading up VBS. It’s a great resource for your church to generate interest in your summer programs.
Adam’s Animals is an entertaining and educational book that offers children loads of fun while they learn about the Bible.
Several people from several different churches tell me that they are leaving their congregations because no one speaks to them. Let’s examine this with great care.
Where does it say that the other guy has to speak first? What if all the congregants are thinking the same thing? What if everyone leaves their church and moves to the other churches where no one speaks?
Where in the Bible does it say we must be spoken to at our whim or that being offended is a reason to move on? It doesn’t. However the Bible does say this.
Whoever would foster love covers over an offense, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends. (Proverbs 17:9, NIV)
A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.(Proverbs 19:11b, NIV)
Repent! Turn away from all your offenses; then sin will not be your downfall. (Ezekiel 18:30b, NIV)
See you all in church.
Prayer- Lord, make us a people of common sense before it is too late. For the Christ who died so that we could love and be loved…Amen.
Up early and ready for church, I am confident that I will not cry today. I say to myself, this is a good day. I can go to church and not be weeping all over everybody.
So sure am I that I go into the building with no thought, no guard up for the simple “How are you?” that
everyone asks everyone. The first person who speaks to me gets a gush of choking tears.
Where do they come from? Isn’t there a reservoir in a person that just eventually runs dry? Apparently not in me unless it is in disarray and the taps are turned on full and the plug is not in the tub.
My first thought is that I must start avoiding these places where I cry. Then I think, how will I ever heal if I avoid the friends and family who love me and care about me? If I stop coming I have lost a huge support
system. What advantage is that to me? No I must learn to let the tears go where they will. What a silly statement. I can’t make them stop no matter what I do.Tears have a life of their own and mine seem livelier than some.
