1. Pastor’s thoughts:

I walked to the office today and was greeted by 5 big trucks from a tree cutting company and about 10 men.  One of them called me over and explained they were cutting the branches around the power wires.  The main reason they were there was to make sure a tree branch would not break off and interrupt the power flow. It reminded me of John 15:5: “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing” (KJV). 

You know, we are surrounded by the hand of God.  Everywhere we look we see God at work!  Back in 2001, I believe, we had the bad ice storm and most of us lost power for some time.  I am thankful that the parsonage had a fireplace or we would have had to leave.  I remember how beautiful the ice on the ground looked.  Then I would hear what sounded like a loud crack and there would be a lightning flash (or so I thought).  I went out and saw that branches, weighted down by the ice were breaking off the tree and landing on the power wire, breaking it.  (The very reason these men were at the church this morning.)  Jesus said, “All authority (power KJV) in heaven and on earth has been given to me” (Matt. 28:18 NIV).  As Christians we are the branches and He is the vine.  We get our life and our power by staying connected to Him.  I’ve heard Matthew 28:19-20 all of my life, but you know, we often need to be reminded of the last sentence in that passage of Scripture: “And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”  When I try to comprehend what the word “omnipotent” means it is mind boggling!  In Romans 8:31 Paul says, “If God is for us, who can be against us?”  In other words, if God is for us, it doesn’t matter who is against us.  As my mind is running at hyper speed, all I can say is “WOW! “ What a Great God we have!

 

2. Laugh a little

Four matronly women were sitting under their beach umbrellas at Atlantic City.  It was a hot afternoon, and none of them felt like talking.  Finally, one heaved a deep sigh and uttered, “Oh.”  The second responded with, “Oh, dear.” The third said,”Oh, dear me!”  And the fourth stood up angrily and said, “If you’re all going to start talking about your children again, I’m leaving.”

 

The minister reproved the husband for spending so much time tinkering with his new car.  “If I were you,” asserted the clergyman, “I’d put my wife before my car.”  “I’d sure like to,” he sighed, “but I’m afraid someone might catch me at it.”  (Red Skelton)

 

While talking with her husband, a woman explains that she is tired of having to handle everything for the family.  “Really,” the husband replies.  “You think we depend on you too much?”  “Look around!” the woman exclaims.  “Not only do I do all the cooking, cleaning, and organizing, but I’m also the main problem solver.  If there’s a disaster, call Mom.  If there’s an errand that needs to be run, call Mom.  If there’s a decision, an appointment, or a mess, call Mom!’ “Hmmm,” the man says, “and what do you think we ought to do about this?”

 

3. Thought for the month:

The race is not
always to the swift,
but to those who
keep on running

This Sunday morning starting at 8:30 A.M. the Sunday School will be preparing and offering breakfast to “whosoever will.”  Hope you will plan on coming and eating with us.  Remember there is “no charge.”  Invite someone to Rose Hill’s free breakfast!

 

 

Ladies Bible Study is every Tuesday at 10:00 AM and the Men’s Prayer Breakfast is the third Saturday of the month at 8:00 AM.  Prime Timers meet Thursday, October 8th at noon for a potluck lunch and Thursday, October 22nd at noon for a potluck lunch.  If you are 55 or over, you qualify to come and be a part.

 

The choir is just getting into rehearsing the Christmas cantata.  If you have always wanted to join the choir but for some reason, haven’t, now is a good time.  See Donna Jordan for further information.
