“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?”---Martin Luther King, Jr.
Me, me, me! When do we realize that it’s not all about ME, and we decide to help others to be all that they can be?
That’s what I like about Habitat. It’s not a hand out it’s a hand UP! It’s the act of enabling another person to achieve success, especially the children.
Speaking of Habitat, we just completed a very exhausting and productive two weeks. The roof is on the house and ready for shingles. We can now complete the framing and prepare to start finishing the outside of the house. We are still working Wednesday through Saturday and we welcome all who wish to come and participate. “What are you doing for others?”
Tomorrow, the property committee will be working in the church parking lot, installing a new light pole. I am sure that they could use some help from a few of you.
This Sunday, August 22nd, we will be limiting how many worshipers can be in the sanctuary, (60). We will also use the fellowship hall and of course there is always the parking lot. If you decided to be inside than you will be required to “mask up”. We are also curtailing the singing at this time and please do not share the peace with physical contact. A wave will suffice.
I will NOT be sending out a message on August 27th and I will NOT be at Dekorra for church on August 29th. I will be in Indiana chasing my great-grandchildren around and taking them to their church.
The Lutheran Men in Mission retreat at the Mackenzie center on September 10,11 and 12 is still a go and we are still signing up men to attend. I will attach a registration form to this message. Do you want a better more meaningful life? Do you want a closer relationship with Christ? Than this retreat is for you. All adult ages are welcome, come with an open mind and be transformed into the man you want to be!
I know that there is probably something that I am missing, however I am rather tired tonight so I am going to keep his short. Stay strong, stay healthy and keep the faith!
Luv Ya All!
William, a Disciple of Christ
Christianity, in its purest form, is nothing more than seeing Jesus.
Christian service, in its purest form, is nothing more than imitating Him who we see.
To see His Majesty and to imitate Him, that is the sum of Christianity!
