THE TIES THAT BIND
Barry Kennedy
In 1772 a preacher by the name of John Fawcett was given an opportunity
to leave the small congregation in Wainsgate and preach for a larger congregation
in London. Through many tears, and pleas to stay, the Wainsgate congregation
helped Mr. Fawcett and his wife pack to move. Overcome by the loving devotion
the congregation had shown, Mrs. Fawcett said, “Oh John, John, I cannot bear
this.” “Neither can I, and we will not go. Unload the wagons and put everything
as it was before.” In celebration Mr. Fawcett wrote the songs “God Be With You
Until We Meet Again” and “Bless Be The Tie That Binds.”
(http://cyberhymnal.org/htm/b/b/bbtttb.htm). What is the tie that binds us together
in love?
The tie of faith Faith should be very important to every individual,
especially considering that without faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews
11:6). True faith is not only good for the individual, it also can bring people
together. The apostle Peter used the phrase “like precious faith” to describe the tie
of faith (2 Peter 1:1). Like precious speaks of unity and value. The apostle Paul
addressed the dangers of division that were plaguing the church in Corinth. “Now
I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak
the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly
joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment” (1 Corinthians 1:10).
Though Paul’s message reprimanded the Corinthians it also encouraged them.
The fact that he said “speak the same thing... be perfectly joined together”
emphasizes the possibility to achieve unity. The only way to truly have the unity
of mind and judgment is through the tie of FAITH.
The tie of forgiveness Is there a blessing out there that ties people
together any better than the tie of forgiveness? We all make mistakes, let people
down, and have the need to be forgiven. “For all have sinned, and come short of
the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). The prophet Isaiah let the nation of Israel know
that their sins separated them from God. “But your iniquities have separated
between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will
not hear” (Isaiah 59:2). Our sins have the same effect today, severing our
relationship with one another as well as with God. Forgiveness is the tie that
reunites the Christian who sinned to Christ and his to fellow Christian. It is easy
to see when we need forgiveness, but it may be harder at times to offer
forgiveness to others. Jesus explained it clearly when He said, “For if ye forgive

men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will
also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their
trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your
trespasses” (Matthew 6:14, 15). What a blessing
we have been given if we are forgiven, and what
a blessing we can give if we will choose to
forgive.
The tie of family Of the three institutions
God ordained, home, government and church,
the home came first. God has always placed a
great emphasis upon family structure. In fact,
God chose Abraham to be a leader because he
knew how to direct his family.
Seeing that Abraham shall surely become
a great and mighty nation, and all the
nations of the earth shall be blessed in
him? For I know him, that he will
command his children and his household
after him, and they shall keep the way of
the LORD, to do justice and judgment;
that the LORD may bring upon Abraham
that which he hath spoken of him (Gen.
18:18-19).
What would God have to say about our family
ties today? Are the cords of love (displayed in
faith and forgiveness) tightly holding us
together, or do we find ourselves coming
unraveled? God knew what He was doing when
He set up the family tie. What a great blessing it
is to be “tied” to a loving family. May God help
us to count our many blessings and never forget
the ties that binds.

EMYG News
Hello Church family! This past Sunday was
super fun. Thank you to everyone who decorated your
trunk, dressed up in costume, and made Sunday night a
great success! Don’t forget to sign up to go to CYC
located on the youth board before it’s too late.
Everyone loves a good vacation! I found out
very quickly on one vacation that I get motion sick on
big boats. I know some people really love cruises and
being surrounded by water. Part of the reason we might
like going on various cruises is because we’re taken care
of, and most all of our needs are met.
Contrast that to God’s design for His church.
The church should not be a cruise ship where a handful
of people serve everyone who is relaxing. Quite the
opposite really! When we come together as His church,
we must leave empowered and ready to work together
for His glory. Colossians 3:17, Paul says, “And whatever
you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of
the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through
him. Instead of a cruise ship, the church should be a
battleship where its “all hands-on deck” and everyone
serves the mission.
Based on our own talents, everyone has a part to
play in the church. The last two years of our lives, we’ve
had time where not much has been happening within the
walls of East Main. But that’s about to change! I hope
you’re ready to get involved in the various works that
East Main is doing and together we can shine brightly in
our community as well as within. I love you! Alex
Thank You Notes
Dear East Main family,
It is difficult to put into words how much we
appreciate all the thoughts, prayers, flowers, food and
love shown to us during the sickness and passing of our
precious James. He loved this congregation and served
wherever he could for over 60 years. Our hearts are
broken over our loss, but we are comforted by our
church family. Please continue to remember us in all
your prayers as this is the hardest thing we have ever
faced. We love your all. The James Simons family
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We can not begin to thank you enough for all the
prayers, flowers, food, phone calls and every act of
kindness shown to us during the passing of my mother.
Thanks to all of you that made the trip to the funeral
home. It meant more than you can ever know. Please
continue to keep our family in your prayers. We are so
thankful for our church family.

East main informer, 11 2-21

  • 1. 0………. 4 --article continued from page 1— Are we confident that our light is bright Vol. 46 November 2, 2021 Number 42 THE TIES THAT BIND Barry Kennedy In 1772 a preacher by the name of John Fawcett was given an opportunity to leave the small congregation in Wainsgate and preach for a larger congregation in London. Through many tears, and pleas to stay, the Wainsgate congregation helped Mr. Fawcett and his wife pack to move. Overcome by the loving devotion the congregation had shown, Mrs. Fawcett said, “Oh John, John, I cannot bear this.” “Neither can I, and we will not go. Unload the wagons and put everything as it was before.” In celebration Mr. Fawcett wrote the songs “God Be With You Until We Meet Again” and “Bless Be The Tie That Binds.” (http://cyberhymnal.org/htm/b/b/bbtttb.htm). What is the tie that binds us together in love? The tie of faith Faith should be very important to every individual, especially considering that without faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6). True faith is not only good for the individual, it also can bring people together. The apostle Peter used the phrase “like precious faith” to describe the tie of faith (2 Peter 1:1). Like precious speaks of unity and value. The apostle Paul addressed the dangers of division that were plaguing the church in Corinth. “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment” (1 Corinthians 1:10). Though Paul’s message reprimanded the Corinthians it also encouraged them. The fact that he said “speak the same thing... be perfectly joined together” emphasizes the possibility to achieve unity. The only way to truly have the unity of mind and judgment is through the tie of FAITH. The tie of forgiveness Is there a blessing out there that ties people together any better than the tie of forgiveness? We all make mistakes, let people down, and have the need to be forgiven. “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). The prophet Isaiah let the nation of Israel know that their sins separated them from God. “But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear” (Isaiah 59:2). Our sins have the same effect today, severing our relationship with one another as well as with God. Forgiveness is the tie that reunites the Christian who sinned to Christ and his to fellow Christian. It is easy to see when we need forgiveness, but it may be harder at times to offer forgiveness to others. Jesus explained it clearly when He said, “For if ye forgive --article continued page 2— ELDERS Mike Childers ............. 397-6453 Dennis Hallmark......... 255-5557 Mark Hitt .................... 322-0917 Bobby Lindley ............ 260-9193 DEACONS Wade Bryan ................ 419-5552 William Harris ............ 416-8149 Ricky Lindsey............. 255-8136 Jeff Mansel.................. 871-0357 Jimmy Spearman ........ 840-8957 Michael Wilson........... 891-0891 MINISTERS Barry Kennedy....(931)787-7108 Alex Blackwelder (731)879-9196 SECRETARY Renee Childers Office.......................... 842-6116 Fax .............................. 842-7091 E-MAIL eastmaincoc38804@gmail.com WEB PAGE eastmaincoc.com SUNDAY SERVICES Worship........................9:00 a.m. Bible class..................10:15 a.m. Worship......................11:15 a.m. Singing or Devotional Last Sunday of the Month MID-WEEK SERVICES Wednesday Classes......7:00 p.m. 1606 East Main Street P. O. Box 1761 Tupelo, Mississippi 38802 “Thou shalt observe to do all that they inform thee” (Deut. 17:10)
  • 2. --article continued from page 1— men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses” (Matthew 6:14, 15). What a blessing we have been given if we are forgiven, and what a blessing we can give if we will choose to forgive. The tie of family Of the three institutions God ordained, home, government and church, the home came first. God has always placed a great emphasis upon family structure. In fact, God chose Abraham to be a leader because he knew how to direct his family. Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him (Gen. 18:18-19). What would God have to say about our family ties today? Are the cords of love (displayed in faith and forgiveness) tightly holding us together, or do we find ourselves coming unraveled? God knew what He was doing when He set up the family tie. What a great blessing it is to be “tied” to a loving family. May God help us to count our many blessings and never forget the ties that binds. ~~~~~~~~~~ Community Outreach Program Cancer Center Project The Community Outreach Program has brown grocery bags in the foyer. We are asking everyone who can to please take a bag, purchase the 6 food items stapled to the bag, and place your bag in the library by Sunday, Nov. 14.

This past Sunday was super fun. Thank you to everyone who decorated your trunk, dressed up in costume, and made Sunday night a great success! Don’t forget to sign up to go to CYC located on the youth board before it’s too late. Everyone loves a good vacation! I found out very quickly on one vacation that I get motion sick on big boats. I know some people really love cruises and being surrounded by water. Part of the reason we might like going on various cruises is because we’re taken care of, and most all of our needs are met. Contrast that to God’s design for His church. The church should not be a cruise ship where a handful of people serve everyone who is relaxing. Quite the opposite really! When we come together as His church, we must leave empowered and ready to work together for His glory. Colossians 3:17, Paul says, “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Instead of a cruise ship, the church should be a battleship where its “all hands-on deck” and everyone serves the mission. Based on our own talents, everyone has a part to play in the church. The last two years of our lives, we’ve had time where not much has been happening within the walls of East Main. But that’s about to change! I hope you’re ready to get involved in the various works that East Main is doing and together we can shine brightly in our community as well as within. I love you! Alex Thank You Notes Dear East Main family, It is difficult to put into words how much we appreciate all the thoughts, prayers, flowers, food and love shown to us during the sickness and passing of our precious James. He loved this congregation and served wherever he could for over 60 years. Our hearts are broken over our loss, but we are comforted by our church family. Please continue to remember us in all your prayers as this is the hardest thing we have ever faced. We love your all. The James Simons family ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We can not begin to thank you enough for all the prayers, flowers, food, phone calls and every act of kindness shown to us during the passing of my mother. Thanks to all of you that made the trip to the funeral home. It meant more than you can ever know. Please continue to keep our family in your prayers. We are so thankful for our church family. Donny & Wanda McKay John, Hollie, Mary Robbins & Rosie Bowlin
