Pastor's Moment

From the Pastor’s Corner .. .. ..

Dog Days of Summer 

Summer vacation time is gone but the Dog Days of summer are still with us. Those long, hot, lazy, days that suck the juice out of us and send us looking for air-conditioning. The original meaning was much different...I’m Sirius …look it up.

Now our young ones return to school for about 180 days. They will have weekends, holidays, bad weather days, disaster days, and perhaps others. Some of these blessed days will result in cursed days of makeup. We offer up prayers to God that He will watch over our students and their teachers to ensure their safety and a healthy amount of learning will take place to prepare our young for their coming years.

How are we, the church, doing with our learning of God’s Word to better our life and the people we interact with - our neighbors? Do we read from our Bibles and other books to insure our knowledge continues to develop?

Here at Alamo Heights Christian Church, we have continued to have an adult Sunday School class but failed to maintain classes for our children. We began a youth class in August and look forward to adding additional classes soon. Expect midweek (Wednesday) Bible Study groups at lunch and again at 5:30 pm. The two midweek Bible studies will be of the same material just offered at different times of the day. Join us for free.

2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV) “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Many of our Spanish speaking churches are enjoying a competition of Bible knowledge called “Bible Olympics”. It is a fun way to stimulate people to study the Bible.

Our Vacation Bible School was very good with a lot of our youth having a good time in their study of Heroes of the Bible. Next year we should have two or three times as many youth involved and blessed. Think about it. Pray about it. Plan for it. Join together and do it for God, our kids, and ourselves.

A statement found on Facebook: “Most relationships fail because we spend too much time pointing out others mistakes and not enough time enjoying each other’s company.”

“It is easy to thank God for the roses; it is much harder to thank Him for the thorns.” (Author unknown.)

God bless you for reading this. Pastor Ed.
We must continue to grow in Christ.
