Transcript ABOUT ABSENTEES! I became very concerned about the church's absentees and decided to cheek up on some of them. This is what I found out! The O. Kaaional Family said they would probably be back sometime next month. Once a month is average for diem. ~*~?,~ Mr. and Mrs. Faint Hearted have given up again. They can not indite that it take* mote enthusiasm and interest on everyone's part to keep going m the winter time. The Pie* R. Seekers were off on a trip and got home just a little too late to come. Mrs. N. E. Seine did not have a clean thing to wear. I saw her on the way to work the next day. The Spineless Sisters had someone to drop in at church lime. They just could not tell thorn that they were on their way to church. The Weather Watchers said the thunder was too loud. Miss Hattie Go Home just had to sec her folks, I understand that she had not been home since last weekend! Mr. and Mrs. T. V. Addict and children could not miss a special Sunday television program. Mr. Luke Warm seems to be unconcerned about his Christian responsibililv to be a good steward of his talents. Mr. Spaz Motic just did not feel like coming. About the only time some people decide >o ly ftfitliful to the Lord's work is when they get ready to die and then it is too late! MX NEEDS YCXJ EVERY SUNDW FOR CHRIST'S SAKE Jfa,/%tfopoiiiwis/(^ °£ fm 4 ■. //so JiOuZk. Aumo^ 0/aoo OofUUioK utcuiaiswner-fS/KX) I -ANOTHER BENEFIT THOUGHTS When we think of God's love for us and Jesus' command to us to love God and our neighbor, it is disquieting to think of the concept of evil and sin. J Yet, unfortunate as it is, evil and sin are both realities, 3oth words passed the lips of our Divine Savior while He was on Earth as our rjrtachei%-_/ :Were it not so, the awful1 sacrifice of Jesus, made in love for us, offering us the hope of^AlTtftt.t-in^. would not have-l!ieen necessary. What then is sin? Since Jesus' twofold command to us is to love, it is logical to assume that sin must involve the negation "of love - a denial or partial denial of His command to love. God did not leave 3A% in the dark about what actions He considers a denial of love. Before the New Covenant of Love, God handed the Law of Moses on Mount Sinai in the form of the Ten Commandments.. When Jesus came*to us, He explained these Commandments, in terms of love while giving us concrete examples of what He i&e&nt. Many times He used parables to help us understand. But Jesus is a Loving Taskmaster, His principles, if fully implemented, make profound psychological and sociological sense. There are times when living up to them require severe self-discipline, but it*s worth it, if not for ourselves, for whose benefit Jesus taught these things, then for Him who laid His life in love for us. His teachings are in the Gospels. Read, Study, Think, Understand and then ACT - LOVE! "Ye are my friends, if you do whatsoever I command you." (John 15:14).. - Hadden Wells How Can I Say THANKS - one years ago at my first 'XC service, after taking communion, I attempted to Sciss the person giving it, and completely missed! I mean i ended up smooching hot air. Was I ever embarrasedf But a smile and a loving hand laid gently against my cheek, let me know that everything was okay. How can I say thanks? rhortly after I cane to San Antonio, I was resident at an inrti- tution definitely not noted for j ts friendliness to gay persons. I had written our pastor, asking for a personal visit. It wasn't very long until one 0 ay I was called to the lobby,' and there was Jim lewey, smiling all over the place. Suddenly I was no longer alone. How can I say thanks? "any times, and in many ways, Pay T. has proven himself to bea good friend. In his case, the good deeds are so numerous I wouldn't even know where to begin. How can I say thanks? As singspiration leader, when I've been guilty of "dragging it" C-ene haw been there .giving me the "lets move it" signal. . There are. so aany others — /■-.}'., >'teve, Jd, Glen, rlarry, putch, George, rharon, I.e., Linda (I ve certainly misted her lately) and so --.any others. If I nisced naming you, Please foraive me. You see, I really don't know how tc say thanks. Tou .might wonder why this sort of thing should be in a newsletter. Weil, (lod knows I have not been shy in declaring my-criticismsi .my anger, etc. And I d,oubt that^Su're &ny different. And r. till we are Christianjj-'STcn't we? i'or thift reason, I'n doing publicly, in print, what I believe we all should do more often, and thats '.. a$ing "I love you", UiintrT _L'<n l5o<u*V.X Wftsrrt lisWm^ QISISTEBS& BROTHERS d
