Sunday May 21, the First reading is from Acts 8:5-17. Peter is preaching and performing miracles in Samaria. Among the many who believed was Simon the Sorcerer.  When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent Peter and John to check out these reports.

The Second Reading is from 1 Peter 3:3-18 where Peter is telling the women that their beauty came from within, rather than from jewelry and fine clothing.  He also cautions husband to treat their wives with respect.

The Third reading is from John 11:15-21. Pastor Charlie’s sermon is titled “Orphans.” Jesus is teaching that He will leave and they will receive the Holy Spirit.  He promised not to leave them as orphans and that He will return one day.

I had heard an old adage years ago that says, “the harder I work, the luckier I get.”  Friday I got a call from Lion Rusty Milroy checking on a program space for the upcoming Pecan Festival, but the earliest time available was the first Tuesday in June.  However, checking my e-mails a little later, I found a last-minute cancellation for Tuesday's program.  So, as fate would have it, or luck if you prefer, not to worry because a program awaits in the wings.

If you work out with headphones, set the volume at 60 percent  of max. Studies show consistent exposure to sounds above 100 decibels (normal conversation is 60dB) can leave you with a permanent "huh?" reflex.

Tuesday's Lions Club meeting was a long-awaited program by local OHP Trooper Brian Costanza, who talked about his role in bringing multiple-killer, Michael Dale Vance, Jr., to justice.  When Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin gave her State of the State Address, she publicly recognized Trooper Costanza and the six other officers who were involved in bringing this fugitive down.  Trooper Costanza was named Oklahoma Trooper of the Year, won the Southern Region Trooper of the Year in Phoenix (there are four regions), and got a trip to Philadelphia for the National Award, which was awarded to an Oregon Trooper, who was shot 12 times, with five bullets piercing his body.  Regardless, Trooper Costanza is still #1 in our hearts.

Bible study, May 6, 9:30 a.m.

“Suffering for Christ” caused by persecution is a major theme of 1 Peter.  In the first century living as a Christian put believers at odds with significant elements of society and they often suffered for their beliefs.

 We are in the midst of the great controversy between Christ and Satan.  Christ, in His holiness and purity, was a constant rebuke, not only to those who hated Him, but to Satan himself, and they were determined to rid themselves of Him.  Likewise persecution and reproach await all who are of the same Spirit as Christ, as stated in 2 Timothy 3:12.
