9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 

10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him.

~John 1:9-10~

I watched last night as report of tornadoes were broadcast and as some damages and deaths were reported. This morning the news is bad. More deaths and more tornadoes! Be alert and prepared! Be alert to more tornadoes today. Help in ways you can.

Help is on the way just as soon as the tornadoes pass through an area. I’m so glad to know about organizations so willing to heed to needs.

All of us can pray and support organization such as Louisiana Baptist Disaster Relief. I can picture some of the folks who recently served through First Baptist Church, Kentwood as they prepare to serve in areas with tornado damage now.

If you cannot serve, you can support LBDR, now headed up by Bro. Stan Statham, who was our District Missionary. You can also add your prayers today and in the weeks to come.

Many churches are having adult and/or children’s Christmas programs this weekend. First Baptist Church, Kentwood, had a wonderful adult program last Sunday night which is now available to view online. Tomorrow night, FBC, Kentwood will have their annual Children’s program at 6 P.M. You will want to come early if you have a young family member singing tonight. Many choose to sit further back so you can watch your children.

Enjoy the true meaning of Christmas this holiday weekend.
