Happy Ground Hog’s Day! The legend goes that if Punxsutawney Phil (in PA) sees his shadow then we are to have six more weeks of winter. My vote is that he won’t see it, so we can get on with spring.
This past Sunday, one of the worship songs was Anne Wilson’s My Jesus which I have been pulling out the line that is the theme of the newsletters – “let me tell you about my Jesus.” As we were singing the song, the line that follows our theme jumped out as being also very important, “and let my Jesus change your life.” I can talk all day about my Jesus, but if it doesn’t change your life, I have been blowing hot air.
When we look into the New Testament, we find many lives that were change because of the presence of Jesus. The apostles would be the first group of individuals that comes to mind when having a transformed life – the Apostle Paul being one of the more dramatic transformations. He talks in Romans 12 about how we can “be transformed (changed) by the renewing of our minds” – v. 2. From this we can see/gather that our minds are a critical component in letting Jesus change our life. How do we go about that? We study His Word. We consume/ingest His Word into our lives.
The current set of flags – American/Christian, that the school uses for secondary homeroom are “ancient.” They are the same flags that were used 35+ years ago and are ragged. So, I had Mrs. Rosenow check the price on a new set – $360. If you would be so inclined to participate in the purchase of a new set, just leave any donations with Mrs. Rosenow so designated.
Wanted: One or two more individuals that could sub teach when needed. A bachelor’s degree from an accredited school is needed.
