“So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you. Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.” Colossians 3:12-15 (NASB)

The celebration of life service for Sarah Criswell Thornton takes place this morning beginning at 10:00AM from the chapel at Serenity Funeral Home in Theodore, Alabama.  Pray for Tom, Ginger, Joy and the family.

If are helping with the food for the Thornton family then please have your dish in our Preschool Building no later than 9:00AM today.  Thank you for being a part of this ministry.

Belvin McDonald remains hospitalized and they are looking to get him into rehab once his hospital stay is over.  Pray for Belvin.

Eddie Albritton’s dad also remains in rehab.  Keep praying.

Some of the hospitals are now limiting visitors because of the virus so I am not sure how that will work for me getting in to see folks this week.

Our attendance was down yesterday and I attribute most of that to fear of the virus.  I wholeheartedly encourage folks who are sick to stay home and that includes trips to stores, restaurants, et cetera in addition to church services.  I think the older folks need to use caution in these same areas.  Now as for everyone else – pretty much amazes me that folks cannot attend church because of the virus but can go everywhere else without giving it a second thought.

I have called a meeting tonight of our church staff and deacons as we will pray, discuss this situation and then go from there.  I want us to be wise but not to live in fear.

It was a joy to baptize Kate Timberlake last night in our service.  Dylan Westbrook, the AWANA children and the workers all did a nice job of sharing with us during our evening service.

Deidra made it back to Guatemala safe and sound.  She had to go through additional screening once in Guatemala but otherwise it was business as normal.  Thank you for praying.

I pray that you will have a great Monday with Jesus.
