C4 - THE JOURNAL, Thursday, September 22, 2011 Seniors continued from page C3 Mehan Union Church News We will walk in the name of the Lord our God forever and ever. Micah 4:5 Thank you Lesa Sadler for your Worship poem as it reminded us what true worship is all about. The congregation shared in communion and the message for that was John 20 and the'Blood of the Lamb." We celebrated three birthdays -Barry,, Autumn, and Paul, and the anniversary of Jim and Pat Driskel We praised the Lord for much need RAIN and hope everyone got some. We welcome everyone to come and worship with us in Sunday school, youth activities bible studies, and fellowship, Luke the 8th chapter, he reveals that some people will believe in him for awhile, and then the devil will come and cause them to fall away and be lost. Others will hear the truth, but produce no fruit because they care more about money and material things than they do about Him. (The good trees, that's what we want to be isn't it?) will have good honest hearts and patiently let him produce good fruit through then. Jesus told another story that should cause us to evaluate our fruit carefully. In Luke 13:6-7 he told about a man, (does that mean he himself?) who planted a fig tree, but when it did not produce what it was supposed to, he cut it down. Do you suppose it ended up in that fire back there? Sobering isn't it. We invite you to visit us on Lover's Lane and study with us about how to reap the rewards of heaven and avoid the fires of hell. The Church of Christ in Perkins Christian Church of Perkins In our Sunday morning Bible class, we continue to study the letters Peter wrote to early Christians in hope that we can see how his instructions will benefit us in our walk with the Lord, When we came to II Peter 1:5-1 0, where Peter says we should seek diligently to add virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love to our faith so that we will not be unfruitful, we stopped and thought about what it means to bear fruit for Christ and what that fruit is. In Matthew 7:16-20 Jesus explains that we, like trees, will be known by what kind of fruit grows on us, and if we do Dot produce good fruit, we will be cut down and cast into the fire. Could that be hell? Maybe we had better inspect the fruit growing on our branches and see if it's the right stuff. In Galatians 5:22-23 Paul says the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance, Then in Colossians 1: 10 he tells us that we must grow in knowledge, produce the fruit of good works, and walk worthily with our Lord. Jesus taught by telling stories that we can relate to. In By Ralph Martin Sunday, our Minister, David Pock, brought a message "Come Alive - Part Four" from Ephesians 2:10. We are God's masterpiece. Created just to do his good works. The aftermath of every experience we will have, during our lifetime, can be used by God to prepare us to do his good works. As God's masterpieces, we dare not treat each other with disrespect or as being inferior. God's grace has equipped us with the special abilities necessary to do his good works. Special abilities such as preaching, teaching, healing, nurturing, giving, admin- istration, and property up-keep. Some may have more than just one talent but all talent is equal in importance and no one talent is superior to the others. When we die, will our eulogy be a testimonial about how we unselfishly helped and served others with kindness, 10ve, and gentleness or will it just be a listing of all the rifles we've accumulated?

Arthur seconded. Arthur, aye; Hesser, aye; Blasier, aye. L Me, Oh My! In his speech at a meeting of the Foundation for Excel- lence, University of Oklahoma president David Boren said we should get rid of I and me and replace them with we and us. Leo Buscaglia, the famous Love professor at the Univer- sity of California, said if we really want to be all that we can be, we must change that "1" and broaden it to "us". On a plane ride a few years ago, a University of Colorado student talked incessantly to him, and every other word was 'T' or "me." The grand old man finally said, "Shut Up! Do you realize how many times in the last 500 miles or so you have said, "me" and 'T'? What about "us" and "we"? In amazement, the kid said, "Who are you?" Leo states that he is very tired of the 'T' and "me" generation, and aren't we all? A couple of years ago, two commentators on a sports talk show agreed that Terell Owens was probably the most serf centered brat of all the egocentric celebrities out there, and if he was denied the use of the words 'T', "me", and "my", he would become mute. It seems that Usain Bolt has now risen to the toper that arrogant list, and it was a pleasure to see him false start and be disqualified at the world championship track meet this year. Our high school English teacher told us to avoid saying 'T' all of the time especially in formal situations. That's hard to do in casual conversation, but we can do it better when we write. Obama seems unable to speak without his teleprompter, so he should be able to do that, but in his speech announcing his big victory and the killing of Bin Laden, Obama used the word "I" ten times, "me" three times, and "mine" three times. Yep, from top to bottom, we have become the I, me, and my generation. It is refreshing to read that, with all of his unbounded ego, president Teddy Roosevelt carefully avoided using the word 'T' in his acceptance speech. The study of history can be rewarding for those who bother to study it. This "I," "me," "my" pestilence has even invaded our churches. Some years ago, the words "we" and "our" were used in public prayers so that all could offer the "Amen." Jesus said we should enter our closets by ourselves to offer our personal prayers, but today, it seems that all we hear is, "I pray", "I ask", and "I thank". Do we have no room in our closets anymore? It breaks our hearts to hear about some of our friends get- ring divorced. Ever since Adam and Eve, God has wanted a man and a woman to marry and live as one for a lifetime. If they both loved God first and more than anything else, they could do that, but it would sure help if they would begin seeing things from the united standpoint of "we," "us," and "'our" instead of "I," "me," and "mine.". One time in a women's meeting at a church we attended in Austin, some dubious women asked a sweet old saint nanaed Jean Billin~sl)', if she had ever thought about divorcing her big old rough husband who was sometimes a rowdy old feller. Jean didn't hesitate. She said, "Jesus told us that when we marry, we must stay married, so I never considered divorce .... murder at times, but never divorce." Do you suppose she meant that?
