Weekly News from WCUMC-10/14/2012Sharing the transforming love of Jesus, across the street and around the world. "The Poor You Will Always Have With You"“Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who arecursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For Iwas hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gaveme nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, Ineeded clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison andyou did not look after me.’“They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty ora stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’“He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of theleast of these, you did not do for me.’“Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous toeternal life.” Matthew 25:41-46Compassion is the heart, the core, of who Jesus was and what He wasabout, and Jesus reflected the heart of His Heavenly Father.Whenever any of us oppress the poor, pay no attention to their plight, goour calloused way . . . we are opposing God and we will pay a price.If your judgment were today and you were judged on the basis of yourconcern for the poor, would Jesus say to you, "Come, inherit theKingdom," or would He say, "Depart from me".Jesus is no longer with us in the flesh, but whenever we do good for
the poor, we do good for Him.Next week– “You Will Be My Witnesses” – Acts 1:8, Pastor Rick Vinther, preaching THIS WEEK AT WCUMCSunday - 10/14 Financial Peace University - 12:30-2:00 PM - Rm. 11 Evening Prayer, 5:30 PM, Prayer RoomMonday - 10/15 "Kingdom Inheritance" Bible Study, Men & Women, 2:00 PM, Memorial Room Talk Time, 7:00 PM, Crossfire Room Men of Integrity - 7:00 PM, Memorial RoomTuesday - 10/16 Womens Bible Study (BSO), 9:30 - 11:30 AM, Sanctuary Mens Bible Study, 9:45 AM, Room 10 Staff Parish Relations Meeting, 7:00 PM, Room 10Wednesday - 10/17 Womens Bible Study, 10:00 AM, Memorial Room Choir Practice 7:15 - 8:30 PM - Sanctuary Prison Ministry meets in Church parking lot at 5:40 PM Youth Group 7:00 PM, Crossfire RoomThursday - 10/18Friday - 10/19 Prime Timers Dinner, 6:00 PM, Celebration HallSaturday - 10/20 Mens Saturday Morning Group, 7:30 AM, CHSunday - 10/21
