Script #68


Beloved,

Good news!

Our fledgling "Bucket Ministry" is taking off!

Of course, there's always a dark cloud for every ray of sunakaSonshine.

A silly rumor has come to me that it takes $200 to fill one.

Geez.

It's like I sometimes say, "Sometimes even I cannot believe what I'm quoted to have said."

Anyway, everything for the buckets as noted on the "sticker" lists available in the narthex and chapel runs about $40; and my favorite radio station founder and manager says he and his wife filled two for $40!

Good shoppers!

Yeah, I guess you can buy work gloves for $29.99 at LL Bean or Cabelas if you'd like; or Farm and Fleet or WalMart or The Dollar Store for 99 coppers.

Flashlights are available with batteries for $2.00!!!

So don't listen to those silly rumors; which only discourage us from the great opportunity before us to live and love in concert with Jesus concomitant to Matthew 25.

Still, I know $40 is a big sacrifice in tough times like these.  I'm scrounging pennies for gas these days and just about everything else.  But let's not let hyperbole get in the way of the privilege to serve.

Blessings and Love!

P.S. If you need more specific help in filling your bucket, go to www.belvpresbyterian.org or www.bnnsradio.com!  BTW, that sounds metaphorical in a spiritual kinda way as in, "What's deep in the well comes up in the bucket!"
