This morning we heard the FBC Orchestra play the special entitled "Emanuel." Bro. Albert May gave us a very good sermon since everyone is stressed out trying to keep up with the normal needed things and trying to make a wonderful Christmas celebration for our families. are "running" at times. We have to make decisions as to just what really necessary and what God needs from us. Of course we love many people and we try to give everyone something and it throws us into that old famous "Tizzy." We get to looking at the storm and think there is no easy way we can come through it all. This is much like the time when Jesus was in the boat in the storm with his followers. was asleep and the Disciples called him out of sleep and he just the storm. There is a lesson for sure. List your treasures at this time and decide which ones are important and those which are temporal. Some are just not so important. Agra Baptist Church By Lois Sumrall How many of us have been too busy this month with all this ping and making candies, cookies, going to children's school _office_ parties church parties and programs that we are just too tired to Mehan Union Church Mehan Road 372-4544 Rev.

Jim Reed used Luke 2:1-7 as text and titled his massage dreaming of a right Christmas" that 1st, we should be obu- ient as seph. it is easy to obey when we understand God's instructions and should obey when we don't understand them in the same way; 2nd, have the faith of Mary--faith is taking God at His word do as He asks; 3rd, worship like the shepherds--upon hearing was born, they left their flocks to see Jesus and left still praising and spreading the good news. 4th, giving like the wisemen--they gave the very best they had, holding back anything. Bro. Jim asked us to think of our very birthday party with lots of presents and food--only when it was to pass out and open gifts, everyone got some except you. After party, you are left with used wrapping paper, bows--no one even re" membered to say "Happy Birthday." Now you know how Jesus when we forget to tell Him "Happy Birthday." 5th, the .¢ it's a bright, beautiful light but its greatest duty was to lead others to Jesus. We need to be witnesses by leading others to Jesus. 6th, the stable opened its doors and humbly welcomed the Christ Child with manger for a bed. When Christ comes knocking at our hearts, are like the inn too full of ourselves of pride, of the world, to have for Jesus or do we humble ourselves and invite Him to change lives? And remember that Baby in the manger is the same person as a who died for our sins, then arose to give us life over death. The best gift we can give this Christmas is our lives to the Lord Jesus Christ. In the evening, the program was great.
