Dear Church Family,
Romans 12:12-13 “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.”
This sounds like good “how to” instructions for your typical Christian in how to interact with others. I’d like to focus in on the sharing with those in need part.
Dear Church Family,
Happy New Year!!! Let us make 2018 as positive and joy filled as we possibly can at The Presbyterian Church in Geneva. It is hard to be positive in this time of unrest that seems to encompass the entire world. Some of us in the past year have lost loved ones, some had health or financial issues. Some of us can’t bear to watch the TV news anymore without making plans to leave for Mars. What can we do to combat this?
I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas!! Please remember the reason for the season and focus on the gift given to all of us, the birth of our Savior. Concentrate on bringing the good news to someone this Christmas. To keep the time with family and friends joyous, I have a few ideas to consider.
I decided to pick a difficult topic for this month after hearing a news report that an area school is no longer letting kids get changed in the locker rooms. It struck me as odd. With a little further research it became clear the reason for this was bullying, and often cyber bullying.
Before I launch into our topic, be sure to see the announcement for our September PASSAGES event. Also, the Parish Health Ministry Team would like ideas from parents on topics dealing with children and/or family dynamics they would like information on. Please contact me with any ideas.
I had been debating about what topic to pick for this month’s newsletter. After watching the last presidential debate, then scouring the globe for a different country I can move to (I’m not thrilled with either candidate), and popping a bunch of TUMS, I decided to write about GERD.
