TUESDAY, 3/24/20

“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 church office will be open today from 8:00AM until noon.  Once again, I will be the chief cook and bottle washer.  The phones literally rang almost non stop yesterday morning.  We had six or seven folks come by and leave their offering and two things stood out to me about those folks – all of them were senior adults i.e. sixty years of age or older and one of them has been laid off from his job.  I was blessed to see their faithfulness!  Not surprised, blessed!

FYI, the church office will be open again tomorrow morning and Thursday morning from 8:00AM until noon.

I keep saying that we are in a fluid situation so you can expect changes.  Here are a couple as they relate to tomorrow (Wednesday) – the church auditorium will be open from 10:00AM until 11:00AM for folks to come and pray.  Please do not congregate but rather just come in, find a spot, and pray for however long you desire.  The offering plates will be placed on the platform on either side of the pulpit if you want to bring your offering – check or cash.  Larry Whitehurst will be present during this hour and will collect the offering at the conclusion of this time.

Tomorrow night, the church auditorium will be open from 6:30PM until 7:30PM for the same purpose.  I will be present and will collect the offering at the conclusion of this time.  Please pass the word.

Our counters will get the offerings given this week on Thursday afternoon and make a deposit.  Thank you to those who gave yesterday, to those who have given online and to those who will give this week either in person or online.  This is important to the ongoing ministries of our church.

One of our men called me yesterday morning with some news that he did not want to hear from the doctor.  I failed to ask if I could share it so for now I will just ask you to pray.

Eddie’s dad is no better physically.  They had talked about discharging him tomorrow but they may keep him for another week or so.  Keep praying.

Levi Seymour’s sister did well through her surgery yesterday.  Pray for a quick and complete recovery.

I did not talk to Kirk Lightfield yesterday but do ask that you continue to pray for his dad in Oklahoma.

We should know the arrangements regarding Danny Lewis’ mother’s service today.  Still in a holding pattern.

Marie Brooks is making face masks.  She graciously provided me with some yesterday.  I am healthy and do not need one at the moment but one could serve me well if I become sick.  Thank you Marie.

You do see a lot of folks around the world wearing masks with most thinking it keeps them from catching the COVID – 19.  The following comes from the Alabama Department of Public Health website:

Q: Should I wear a face mask when I go out in public?

A: No. Face masks are not recommended for the general public, though masks can be useful in some settings — such as in a hospital or clinic waiting room — to prevent someone who has a respiratory illness from spreading it to others. The CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19. You should only wear a facemask if a healthcare professional recommends it. A facemask should be used by people who have COVID-19 and are showing symptoms. This is to protect others from the risk of getting infected. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and other people who are taking care of someone infected with COVID-19 in close settings (at home or in a healthcare facility).

Hey pastor, what is our schedule for this Sunday, March 22, 2020?  Yes!

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