[The Word Became Flesh]

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

He was with God in the beginning.

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.

We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

~John 1:1-2, 14 (NIV)~

 

 

Today, I want to share Dr. Waylon Bailey’s post entitled “I Love God’s Promises”.  He is the senior pastor of FBC, Covington and has been there since 1989.

To get ourselves prepared for Christmas, many people start on December 1st and read one chapter of Luke each day.  Today’s reading is Luke 1.  (If you have been reading the suggested passages I post each day, you will already have done this and will be on Luke 24 today.

 

 

Read the Bible

  • Hosea 7-8
  • Psalms 137
  • Luke 24

 

 

The Lottie Moon Tea is tomorrow afternoon at 2 P.M. at East Fork Baptist Church.  The tea is for all ladies from three to one hundred three.  There is no charge, but you can participate in missions by bringing some stamped Christmas cards.  The cards will be delivered to the parish jails in Amite and Greensburg.  I remember seeing one of those cards that was written to grandparents one year.  I know they felt such a blessing as they treasured that card.  I wish I had known who provided that card so I could have let the family express their appreciation.  You never know who will get the cards you send and who will be reading the card later, but know this.  The cards are important in touching lives.  Your card can make a big difference in a family.  While you are at the tea, you will be blessed to hear some of our area children share Christmas songs.  Let’s teach our little ones there is much more to Christmas than a jolly man in a red suit.

 

 

The senior adults of FBC, Kentwood will be honored with a holiday meal Wednesday at 11 A.M. in the fellowship hall.
