As You Think, So You Act by Joe Barnett

As he thinks within himself, so is he.  Proverbs 23:7

Every church has had, now has, or will have a pessimist in its leadership.  Thankfully – at least where I’ve been – optimists are in the majority.

I was soapboxing about pessimists in a leadership seminar several years ago, when a guy interrupted, “Some of us are realists!”  A brother approached me at the end of the session and said,  “That guy’s a fly in the ointment is  our  church;  he’s against everything.”  My experience has been that pessimists never see themselves as pessimists.

The way you think is the thermostat that regulates the way you act.  Think negatively, and you’ll be miserable and act negatively.  Think positively, and you’ll be happy and act positively.

Keep a tight rein on your thinking; it determines how you feel and how you act.

No grand idea was born in a committee,

but a lot of magnificent ideas have died there.

B.J. Henderson was struck by a vehicle last Sunday while on her way to services.  She suffered broken knee, femur bone, shoulder, and a fractured hip.  Surgery was performed Tuesday and was successful.  Recovery will be lengthy. She is room 1107, Jeanie Sealy Hospital.  She may be discharged as early as Monday. B.J. is appreciative of all the visits and concern from the Broadway family.

 

Welcome Back!

We’re glad to have Mike, Hope and Sam Zuniga with us this morning.  Mike and Hope work with the Northside congregation in San Angelo.  He teaches at the Southwest Bible Institute, also in San Angelo.  He has a “circuit rider” ministry in the Concho Valley area, to those churches who cannot afford a full-time minister.  Broadway became acquainted with the Zunigas when they worked with the church in Laredo.   We are happy to continue our support of their work. Mike will give a 10-minute talk this morning before the sermon.  Give them a big Broadway welcome!

 

 

Vacation Bible School!

Broadway will have Vacation Bible School on August 5th6th and 7th (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday), from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. each night.  The theme is “No Greater Love,” the life of Jesus Christ.  Children age PreK through 5th grade are encouraged to attend.  Contact Tim Lewis if you have questions or desire to help in any way.

 

Potpourri!

Special thanks to Carla McLaughlin, Ruth Roberts, Suzanne Druss, Diane Scott, Sheila Williams, Inez Jones, and Sandi Moeller.  They assisted Margaret Winters with her move to the Gulf Care Center. This was a project of the Ladies Class. Their service is much appreciated.

 

Congratulations to Mae Carnes (Sandi Moeller’s granddaughter) who was the recipient of the Grand Cup awarded through the National Federation of Music Clubs.  She’s one of only four students in the State of Texas to earn the award in 2019.

Another of Sandi’s granddaughters, Molly Carnes, was named The Most Improved Player for the summer by the Island Youth Tennis League.  She is eleven years old. Way to go, Molly!
