Theology In A Nutshell ...

Today, at First Prez-Midland, the readings included a line from the the Gospel according to John (3:16, KJV). Pastor Mary Beth Anton calls it 'theology in a nutshell' ... "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

... 'nuff said. But, say it again and again - to yourself and others - in the week ahead. For, we are marking a singular occasion this week. It is the occasion that separates Christians from all the other faiths of the world ... but it is the occasion that binds ALL Christians together ... "We are," Pastor Jim Miles at First Prez-Fort Stockton reminds us, "the Easter People."

Thanks for the good thoughts!

For my Boy Scout Order of the Arrow project at Troop 85, First Prez, I used to polish all the wood in the pews. Notice how nice they still look!
