Uh, don't forget to read everything! Uh, some real exciting news in #4!
1. Expecting to be surprised by joy again during Sunday's worship services as our intimacy with and freedom through Jesus accelerates on the corner of Lincoln and Main, there will be two very special opportunities after the second service: (A) our annual congregational meeting to elect deacons and elders; and (B) our parish nurse Vicki will be bringing an expert on President Obamacare to provide a briefing on how it affects everyone while allowing for Q&A.
2. If you missed Friday's inaugural live broadcast of "Add a Little PEP" with Joe Pallikaythayil on www.bnnsradio.com, I've got good news for you! Just click on www.bnnsradio.com, click on the tab for "Add a Little PEP" in white letters on the black board, and be blessed! Really, it's the best 15 minutes on radio! Totally awesome! Please forward this opportunity to friends needing PEP in their lives in a Matthew 5:14-16 kinda way!
3. Do you know the opposite of love? Quickly, love is praying and laboring for the highest good for others regardless of who, what, where, when, or why without the need or expectation for response, regard, or reward. Now back to the question. The opposite of love is selfishness. Sooooooo invite, welcome, include, and agape! Now read #2 again and keep using this miracle of modern technology to forward opportunities to...
4. Speaking of the opposite of love, did you know our Lord really, really, really doesn't like gossip, rumor, and slander? Uh, methinks some folks have cut those texts out of their Bibles; forgetting His Word is bigger than our favorite parts. Anyway, there is some gossip/rumor/slander going around that I will address directly after the Bible lesson and at the beginning of the message in both worship services on Sunday. Fasten your pewbelts! If you're going to be away or know someone who likes juicy gossip/rumor/slander, you/they can hear it live on Sunday by clicking on www.bnnsradio.com at 10:00 a.m. Actually, the juicy tidbit, again, will be exposed just after the Bible lesson and at the beginning of the message! I'm sooooooo excited! Our gossipers and rumormongers and slanderers are going to have a field day with this one!
Blessings and Love!
