Nature is my friend that arouses a verse
Being close to beauty is my desire,
Because beauty was created by God.
Prairie, farmland, river, pine forest,
Creating images dear to my soul
In nature there are many wonders .
The sky is blue with clouds
I pray among beautiful surroundings
And thank the God in the universe
For beauty it’s magnificent diversity.
How is beautiful our Michigan!

This will be our 9th year and everyone is invited to come on December 4th from 5:00-7:00pm. We’ll begin with Christmas songs sung by our Kids Praise groups – 4 & 5 year olds and 1st - 4th graders, followed by a puppet performance by some of the middle school students. Then, the rest of the evening is spent in our version of the town of Bethlehem.

This morning, I was hit by two scriptures that speak to my pile of books and my daily tasks. Ecclesiastes 1 is a lament from the King of Israel that says ‘Much learning earns you much trouble.’ And Matthew 6 tells us to store up treasures in Heaven instead of treasures on earth. I guess my take-away from those two very different ideas would be this: Knowing things isn’t going to last. But helping people glorify God on a Sunday morning (and beyond) certainly will.

One of my favorite things to eat is Chicken Wings. I
especially like them Hot! Like rub your
eyes and they hurt hot. I have friends who make the best hot sauces. Awesome
sauces! Sauces are what can make your meal. A savory Hollandaise sauce, a
delicious barbeque sauce, a succulent sweet and sour will all do the trick!
Well, last Wednesday morning, the youth of the world celebrated See You at the
Pole. See You at the Pole day – it’s about one simple act—prayer. This
is an opportunity for students to pray for themselves, their teachers, their
grades, the world, etc.… This movement started over 25 years ago and I have
been plugging kids into it since I got into ministry in 2002. Here are three
reasons we have been a part of this movement.
