Sunday Sermon

This Sunday we heard from the youth and their leaders on the recent mission trip to help rebuild homes in Florida. It sounds like they got a lot accomplished in a short time. They also learned about hands on Christianity. Good job!

    I too enjoyed hearing from our youth and leaders on their mission trip; "hands on Christianity" is a great phrase, and I found myself pondering when was the last time I was able or willing to do that..
    I was particularly touched, both in the service and in the coffee hour, with their discussion of "Bill," the person who asked for their help, needed their help, but was neither courteous nor appreciative of it. As one of the sweetest of the young people said, hopefully, "You could tell he was appreciative, he just had a hard time showing it." It's one of the most valuable lessons to learn that the needy cannot always show their appreciation, or may even seem hostile as they accept our assistance....like our young people, we need to keep working with Christian love, even though the objects of our help don't always repond the way we might like them too!
