On Your Way to Life Forever by Joe Barnett
Because I live, you also will live. John 14:19
I recently presided at the memorial service for a dear friend who had battled cancer for six years. In a post to family and friends, he wrote, “I have zero fear of death.”
Jesus altered the mental landscape for those who are his – by dying and rising; he set us free from fear. “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me” (Psalm 23:4).
Death is the great equalizer, in that it treats everyone the same: “Each person is destined to die once” (Hebrews 9:27). Die we must; but not alone, not in fear, and not forever.
“Because I live,” he promised, “you also will live.” And that life is forever.
Live for the day when God will wipe away every tear and take away every fear.

Kenneth Zimmerman was hospitalized this past week. He is recovering at home. He thanks everyone for their prayers. Send Kenneth a card!
There are still copies of the retired songbooks and Bibles on the tables at the rear of the auditorium. If you would like to have one, please feel free to take it.
The church that received the blue songbooks are thrilled. They can all sing from the same page in the hymnal.
The song leader’s life is far less challenging. They all send their “Thank Yous”!
Ask Armando about his dog, Pugsley, who may be making his movie debut!
Thanks to Doug for taking pictures at the Halloween party and putting them on the monitor in the hall.
It’s good to have Bill and Marie Nunnally back in Galveston. They will be with us until spring. Bill will teach the adult class starting in January.
Lone Star Biker Rally!
For those new to the Island, November brings the Annual Lone Star Biker Rally. The official dates this year are October 31st-November 3rd. Last year 500,000 attended. This year attendance is estimated to be less. Anticipate heavy traffic, especially the Seawall, Broadway, and the Strand area. This event has a significant economic impact on our city.
Any inconvenience we experience is more than offset by the benefit to our local economy. So…plan accordingly and welcome our guests. We usually have several bikers in our assembly.
