Life thoughts for June 18 – Second Sunday after Pentecost (Father’s Day) – Godly fatherhood treats dependents as delights and not burdens. True fatherliness rejoices to defend and provide for them, no matter how incapable or unresponsive they become (Romans 5:6-10). Nothing a person has done or can’t do undermines how ceaselessly special God’s made us all. Dear Father, hold us and help us reach out with Your arms. Amen.
Wanted: Someone to serve as our congregational scrapbook keeper. If you are interested, see Pastor.
Needed: donations to the TIM fund to support the missionaries our circuit helps to sponsor. Use your Missions envelopes or designate a gift on your regular envelope for TIM.
