God in Heaven, give me a deeper love for other people. In Christ' name. Amen.
We got a sound warning from Pastor Lipsey today. Don't go to lunch with him. Chris Combs did and he caught the Spirit of Christ so deeply that he left his job in Corporate America and joined the Montgomery Community Church staff as Director of Missions.
Chris announced how our small groups can demonstrate our love to the survivors of Katrina and Rita. We will each organize a neighborhood drive to collect toys, cleaning supplies and school supplies to be sent to the survivors.
A Bag Full of Bears and Lambs
I know I have a bag of stuffed animals that our daughters played with back when they were little ... the bears and lambs are in mint condition waiting for a grandchild to play with them ... but now I know they were saved for an even more important goal ... to become the favorite toy for a little child in the Gulf who lost all her toys. I know exactly where these fluffy animals are headed!
