The Healing Poultice by Joe Barnett

By this, all men will know that you are my disciples
if you love one another. John 13:35

It challenges credibility to imagine Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz being on the same team and playing nice. Only a compelling passion for a cause bigger than their differences – and bigger than themselves – could bring about the accord.

Two of Jesus’ apostles, Matthew, and Simon the Zealot, were political enemies.
Matthew was a tax collector for Rome, an abominable occupation in the eyes of Patriot Jews, who considered him a traitor.
Simon was a Zealot. Zealots hated Rome and brutally murdered Jewish traitors. If Simon had met Matthew before both joined Jesus, he would have decapitated him.

But their allegiance to Jesus trumped their political hostility, motivated Matthew and Simon to work together harmoniously. People who hate each other can come to love each other when they both love Jesus.

The poultice that heals is love.

We Need Your Help!

Opportunity for Good Work!

Broadway has participated in the coat distribution at the Spring Branch Church of Christ for the past two years. This outreach serves persons of all ages. This year’s event is scheduled for October 26th and November 2nd. There is a need for all types of winter outerwear: coats, sweaters, windbreakers, sweatsuits of all sizes, weights, and types. There is a strong need for children’s sizes, especially small sizes.
Jim Culpepper, who was very supportive of Broadway’s rebuilding program after Hurricane IKE, is asking for our help. Let’s join in and do our part for this effort!
Both new and gently used (clean) clothing is appreciated. To contribute bring your donated items to the church building beginning next Sunday, September 29th, through Sunday, October 20th. There will be plastic containers located in the room left of the pulpit. For additional information see Mikey.

Storm Damage!

We all experienced the wrath of Tropical Storm Imelda this past week. Most of us were lucky to avoid the flood damage, although getting around our Island was a challenge! The church building incurred damage in five locations to the roof, especially the Ladies restroom and the kitchen. If you see the holes in the ceiling, rest assured that repairs are to be made very soon.
