  • Our Christmas envelope offering will go toward the nutrition program at New Germany Elementary School.
  • I visited a family today that would be very greatly blessed by some furniture: if anyone is looking to give away some bunk beds, a couch, or chairs, please let me know. It would make a very big difference in their lives right now.

On the web:

  • I preached last week about bullying. There is a fascinating Psychology Today article, about Jesus’ teaching about how to respond to bullying. I don’t agree with everything the author says, but some of his insights are perceptive and simple. https://www.psychologytoday.com/ca/blog/resilience-bullying/201212/jesus-taught-the-solution-bullying
  • I listened to last Sunday’s episode of CBS’s 60 Minutes. They covered how terrible the gang violence is in El Salvador. Then they talked with a pastor of a church that is doing remarkable work there. It is understood in the cities in El Salvador that once a man joins a gang, there are only two ways out of it: to die, or to become a born again Christian and join a church like that one. https://www.cbsnews.com/video/a-central-ally-the
  • There is a radio interview with the founder of YouVersion. If you use a smart phone or a tablet, you might want to use the YouVersion app to read and study and listen to the Bible. It’s free. The fascinating thing in the interview is that YouVersion has been successfully operating in every country of the world, and has yet to be shut down, even in the countries the most hostile to the gospel. I was impressed this year, as I met Mexican workers whose families speak various remote indigenous languages, that I could find the Bible in their languages on YouVersion. https://www.vomradio.net/episodes/detail/gods-word-in-every-hand
  • Listen to Lenny Gallant’s stirring song about the innkeeper in Bethlehem. https://youtu.be/3S1jsatf7q4
