Last month I said that I would have a semi-set schedule for my physical presence at FPC Madisonville.  I’ll be in the office Monday - Wednesday from 9:00 till noon.  Other times can be arranged through the office.

I want to thank all of you for your kind words, prayers, condolences, meals, and love during this time of readjustment with Peggy being in Heaven.  We will have a memorial service soon here at the church.  We plan to scatter Peggy’s ashes on the Aran Islands when we can.

“I am blessed, I am called.  I am healed, I am whole.  I am saved in Jesus’ name.  Highly favored, anointed, filled with your power.  For the Glory of Jesus’ name.  And should this life bring suffering Lord I’ll remember what Calvary has bought for me both now and forever.”  God is Good, Sixsteps Music, 2018.

Grace is everything for nothing to those who don’t deserve anything.  Grace is what everyone needs, what none can earn.  Every believer is familiar with the concept and reality of God’s grace.  When we speak of His Grace we mean all the good gifts we enjoy freely in life.  As humans we are given a unique place in the created order.  God pronounces all creation, including humankind, full of His grace.  When we use the word “graceful” to describe a creature, it is because the creature is being expressive of its God-given self.  Be graceful, express your God-given self!

In His love,
