East main informer, 10 27-20

  1. 1. 4 Vol. 45 October 27, 2020 Number 42 The Diary of a Bible Author Unknown January 15—Been resting quietly for a week. The first few nights after the first of this year my owner read me regularly, but he has forgotten me, I guess. February 2—Clean-up. I was dusted with other things and put back in my place. February 12—Owner used me last night for a short time after dinner, looking up a few references. Went to Sunday School. March 7—Clean-up. I am dusted and in my old place again. I have been down in the lower hall since my trip to Sunday School. April 12—Busy day. Owner led a little devotional and had to look up references. He had an awful time finding one, though it was right there in its place all the time. May 5—In Grandma’s lap all afternoon. She is here on a visit. She let a teardrop fall on Philippians 2:5-7. May 6—In Grandma’s lap again this afternoon. She spent most of her time on 1 Corinthians 13 and the last four verses of the 15th chapter. May 7, 8, 9—In Grandma’s lap every afternoon now. It’s a comfortable spot. Sometimes she reads me and sometimes she talks to my author. May 10—Grandma gone. Back in the old place. She kissed me good-bye. June 3—Had a couple of four leaved clovers stuck in me today. July 1—Packed in a trunk with clothes and other things. Off on a vacation, I guess. July 7—Still in the trunk. July 10—Still in the trunk, though nearly everything else has been taken out. July 15—Home again and in my old place. It was quite a journey, but I do not see why I went. August 1—Rather stuffy and hot, I have two magazines, a novel, and an old hat on top of me. Wish they would take them off. August 12—Used by Mary a few moments today. She was writing a letter to a friend whose brother had died and wanted an appropriate verse. August 31—Clean up again. What would Our Bibles have to say?

  2. 2. --article continued from page 1— David understood his “heart condition” and asked the Great Physician for a clean heart and a right spirit. Of course, God was willing to restore David to the faithful fold, and He is still ready to do the same for “whosoever will” come to Him today (Revelation 22:17). Are we ready to say, “I’m Sorry?” Another example is that of the “prodigal son” of Luke 15:11:32. Jesus was discussing with the Pharisees the value of every soul. He pointed out how that the lost needed to be restored, no matter what their nationality might be. In the course of His discussion Jesus pointed out the joy that restoration brings to the lost, the angels in Heaven, and to God Himself (Luke 15:7, 10). Jesus painted a picture of a young rebel who wanted to “live it up” and soon found himself without. He had lost everything, going from the party to the pig pen. What a depraved state to be in, i.e. considering eating the hog’s leftovers (Luke 15:16). Jesus said that he came to himself and realized his folly in leaving his father for the far away land of sin (Luke 15:17-19). The young man’s penitence is clearly seen in his confession that he was not worthy to be a son (Luke 15:19). By genuinely saying “I’m Sorry,” the prodigal was restored to his place in the home, and there was joy. What about us? We need to take constant inventory of our lives. It may be that we too should say, “I’M SORRY.” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Thank You Note My dearest East Main family, How can I begin to thank all of you good people for the many things you have done for me during my recent surgery and recovery? May God bless every one of you! I love you all and hope to see you soon. Mary Lou Walden Send a Card/Prayer Recently, Rob Whitacre from House to House/ Heart to Heart came and spoke to us on personal evangelism and how we as a congregation can evangelize our community. We have had some new cards printed and placed in the back of the pews in the auditorium that say “send a card/prayer.” It is our hope that if there is anyone you know of who is not a member of the Lord’s church or not attending anywhere and has sickness, loss of a loved one, or anything going on in their lives that would warrant a card or note of encouragement being sent, that you would please fill out one of these cards and drop it in the holder beside the church office on the wall. Renee will then put the contact in a spreadsheet and leave that list on the table in the foyer. Everyone in the congregation is encouraged to pick up a list of these names and a card available on the table, write a note on the card, drop it off in the office and it will be mailed out for you. If you would prefer to mail the card yourself, that is perfectly fine, we just ask that you use East Main’s return address so the recipient will have a connection to our congrega- tion. We are praying that many contacts will be made with this effort! Thank you for your help and cooperation as we strive to bring the lost to Christ. Sunday Bible Classes We are happy to announce that Sunday, Oct. 25 we plan to resume Bible classes after the 10:00 a.m. worship service. For now, we will follow the same format and schedule of classes as we have been doing on Wednesday evening. If possible, PLEASE wear your mask, social distance inside the building, and restrict visiting to the parking lot. Sympathy Our sympathy is extended to the family of Jennie Cox who passed from this life Oct. 17. Family services were held at Lee Memorial Funeral Home in Verona on Oct. 20. Please keep Joyce Burney, Brenda Beckner, Jacob Bradley, Chevela Underwood and the rest of the family in your prayers.
