Comparisons are Toxic – by Joe Barnett

When they compare themselves by one another,
they do not show good sense. 2nd Cor. 10:12

Once-a-year marathoners are smart enough not to compare themselves with runners from Kenya. Comparisons on any turf are toxic.

If you are at the top and compare yourself to those below you, the result is an arrogant feeling of superiority. If you’re are the bottom and compare yourself to those above you, the result is a humiliating feeling of inferiority. If you’re in the middle-of-the-pack and compare yourself to those above and below you, the result is a debilitating feeling of insignificance.

Comparisons with others dead-end in feelings of superiority, inferiority, or insignificance. None of which square with God’s appraisal of you.

God made you who you are and put you in a position no one else can fill: no one is above you, and no one is below you.  Celebrate being one of a kind.

Happy 90th Birthday, Margaret!
Margaret’s Galveston story began in 1956 when she and her late husband, Loren Winters, chaperoned a group of high school students to Galveston. Six months later they were Galveston residents and members of Broadway Church of Christ.

Loren worked for the Santa Fe Railroad and Margaret taught music at the old Travis Elementary School on Avenue R. Later, they were instrumental in beginning the Crystal Beach Church of Christ with Loren preaching and Margaret leading singing from the first pew! Together they experienced several hurricanes, including Hurricane Carla in 1960.

A tragic story is that Carla blew through Galveston on the weekend they were to move into their newly built home. Nothing remained of their home.

Margaret has been an active member of Broadway for 63 years. We’re celebrating not only her 90th birthday, but also honoring her as our longest member. Thank you, Margaret, for all the good years!

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, wind-breakers, sweat suits 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.

Happy Birthday, Margaret!
