Thank You, Lord by Joe Barnett

I thank my God every time I remember you. – Phil. 1:3

Ninety-nine-to-one.  If ninety-nine people complimented a sermon and one person criticized it, I’d spend days nursing the wound inflicted by the critic.

Do you spend more time thinking about those who have hurt you than you do about those who have helped you?  You remember something someone said that stung; did something that bruised.  It dogs your memory – sometimes for years; ravaging the limited time you have on this planet. Flip that switch to “Off”.

 

And this one to “On”.  Thank God for a specific someone who said or did something in a yesterday of your life that makes your today better.  I bet you could come up with the names of several people who gave a part of themselves to help you grow, achieve, and write a happily-ever-after ending.  Thank you, Lord.

Instead of thinking about what someone has done to you,

think about what someone has done for you.

SIBI Update!

Last Thursday, Allen and Mikey attended the fund-raiser dinner for Sunset International Bible Institute (SIBI).  Tim Burow, SIBI President, presented his vision for the school in teaching ministers and missionaries.  Broadway is a major contributor to the school’s Solar Ministry.  Next year they will have additional 3,000 of this evangelistic tool distributed to parts of the world without electricity.  The Bible translations and lessons will be in the Portuguese and Creole languages.  In December, part of our special missions contribution will go to this evangelistic outreach.

 

Thank You Note!

The following letter was received from Leah Roberson, daughter-in-law of Margaret Winters:

“I want to take a moment to thank Broadway Church of Christ for lovingly caring for Margaret Winters.  You are truly her family.

I am Margaret’s and Loren’s daughter-in-law, having married their son Allen Winters in 1984.  I’ve not known kinder people than Margaret and Loren.

I live nine hours away in Arkansas and getting to Galveston to see Margaret is difficult.  I take great comfort knowing that her church family is there for her.

God bless you all at Broadway Church of Christ.  I will keep you in my prayers.

Leah Roberson

Note:  A contribution to Broadway Church of Christ was included with the above letter.

Our Circuit Preacher!

Allen will be preaching at his “second congregation” (Stafford Church of Christ) this Wednesday evening.  Plus…he is going to be the Sunday evening preacher for several Sundays while Stafford seeks a full-time minister.  Joe Barnett will do some Sunday mornings, as will Gene Polvado.
