Self Protection

In Karen Mains excellent "Tales of the Kingdom" (I highly recommend both the book and the series for children and adults - the stories are good, the illustrations exceptional), Scarboy always covers the scar on his face with his hand when he's with other people - even if they are working together. Obviously this hurts his ability to help, until he is encouraged to use two hands when sawing wood - and it feels so good.

Metaphorically, I wonder how many of us have at least one spiritual hand covering our scars, our weaknesses, our problems - and how this hinders our walk with and ministry for the Lord.

This Sunday's Myth Busters message is, "I Have to Protect Myself - Not!" Hope to see you there.

I'm looking forward to it!
Pray for us, we've been sick every weekend for 4 or 5 weeks now. Big time sick, 103-104 temps. Donnie is on his 4th day of being sick this week, can't even work.

That does sound interesting, unfortunately, we will not be there this Sunday. We will be attending Lamson E Free for their 100th Anniversary reunion festivities. Perhaps I can catch your sermon online??? So far, the only service I've seen on the website is the July 20th one.
