WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 12th, 2015 - "Don't worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older, it will avoid you." Winston Churchill

SUNDAY, AUGUST 16th, 2015 - Join us for morning worship at 10:00 am. Rev. Rafael Vallejo leading. A small tid bit from Sunday's sermon - "In the Bibical tradition, wisdom means understanding the way God has ordered the world. Wisdom comes from living a life that is in harmony with God's purpose for us and for the world in which we live."

MISSION CAPSULE: In the wake of Typhoon Haiyan - a humanitarian disaster of enormous scope - striking the Philippines, many families lost their homes, crops and seed. One year after the devastating storm, survivors are moving forward as they restore their homes and rebuild their lives. Analyn Azure Banagon is one of these survivors. "I was sad. After our suffering, all we wanted was a house that was safe." She and her family now have that - a new, storm resistant structure on a hill, constructed with assistance from PWS&D, is providing safety and security. Analyn is just one of the over 4,000 people who have benefited from shelter repair or construction, providing much hope for the future.

NOTE: Mary and Erin will be leading a teacher training session on the Young Children and Worship curriculum, which we hope to be able to resume in September and which is suitable for children 3-6 years old. This was going to be held in August but a couple of people have shown interest but are on holiday. Dates to be announced soon.

MORE GROANERS:

An invisible man marries an invisible woman. The kids were nothing to look at either.

Two fish swim into a concrete wall. The one turns to the other and says, "damn"

Two peanuts walk into a bar, and one was a salted.

Two Inuit sitting in a kayak were chilly, so they lit a fire in the craft. Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it too.

A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse. "But why," they asked, as they moved off. "Because, he said, I can't stand chess-nuts boasting in an open foyer."

Have a good week - MB
