One Step at a Time
Tommy Croker was our worship leader at First Southern Baptist Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He also created the chapel choir of which Darla and I were a part during high school. Tommy introduced me to Robert Frost and his poem “The Road Not Taken.” Take a moment to read the poem.
Tommy Croker helped me to discover that when you come to a fork in the road, choose the one that will make an eternal difference. I am but one traveler on this journey of faith.
As we reflect on the resurrection, let’s commit to take the road less traveled. It will make a difference in the ministry we share.
See you next Sunday at the 10:30.
IN HIS STEPS,
Pastor George II Peter 3:18
Greetings from Dollie's desk
August came and went so fast I’m not sure I even got started before it is over. There were some busy times going on at FBC.
We had some good special music during August thanks to our music director, Sharon Maynard.
August 2nd several of us baked cookies that we shared with the Central school construction crew. We have been watching the new building going up. Looks like it is going to be really nice.
August 11, Amber Riddock and Seth Bourquin were married. On August 19th we had a baby shower for Audrey, baby daughter of Christian and Cristina Johnson.
We are looking forward to a concert by Liberty Quartet on September 9 at 6:00pm. Invite your friends and family for an evening of gospel music.
Pastor George and Darla have flown to Maine to spend time with family. While they are there Pastor George will officiate at his nephew’s wedding.
We are sorry to learn that Floss Foster has cancer. Our prayers are with Floss and her family. We also need to remember to pray for many in our church family who are struggling with health issues.
Our boys and girls are beginning a new school year. Thank you to all who donated to “Stuff the Bus.” Your donations helped fill pack backs with school supplies needed by children in our community.
As we go into fall please take time to enjoy the lovely flowers and gardens around our town.
I leave you with this thought: “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12 What is your focus today; regardless of your feelings? Is it one of gratitude for Jesus and His gift of eternal life? If so, you’ll grow sweeter as you grow older. What you will be tomorrow depends on the choices you make today.
Until next month, may God bless you.
