In the same way, faith by itself,

if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

~James 2:17~

I don’t want to sound like a meteorologist, but the next couple days are predicted to be extremely hot. I do want each of you to be careful if you must be outside in this summer heat.

Vickie W. Gill is reported to be a little better. Remember, her family and friends ask you to pray for her at 10:30 A.M. and 8:30 P.M. each day.

Two of my former students, one in the classroom and one I tutored, also need special prayers as they fight Covid-19. Please pray for C.J. Schiro and Danielle Dillon.
