God is Good

God is an amazing God. There is some very good news to report...but not the sort of news we are (for the moment) at liberty to blog. If you are a member of Good Shepherd, check your email for an important email which should be in your in-boxes out momentarily

Okay, now, on to the rest of the notes...

Men's Breakfast and Bible Study will be in the St. Andrew's parish hall tomorrow morning. I'll be cooking.

Women's Bible Study will also be held in the church this week.

Micah's Sermon Still waiting for the text of Micah's excellent sermon from last week so I can post it here and on the website

Bible Talk at BU: In case you missed my talk on the nature of scripture at BU's Intervarsity Fellowship, here is part 1. Part 2 will be posted next week.

The Shepherd's Bowl meal will be served this evening at Conklin Avenue Baptist Church. The people of Conklin Avenue are very interested in joining this ministry effort. They have not only opened the kitchen to our cooks and gym up to hungry people looking for a warm meal, they want to learn how to do what we've been doing. Wouldn't it be great to have TWO soup kitchens here on the southside running on different nights...that possibility is looking more and more possible.

Thursday Night Bible Study will start up again next Thursday at Conklin Avenue Baptist after the Shepherd's Bowl at 6:30pm.

Jeanette Ricker: The memorial service for Jeanette will be held at 11:00am this coming Wednesday at our present location...356 Conklin Avenue. Sympathy cards for Jeanette Ricker's family can be sent to; David Ricker at 30 Brookline Dr., Clifton Park, NY 12065

Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper- As you may or may not know, we are planning a huge celebration for Shrove Tuesday (which is the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday...Mardi Gras for you pagans out there : ).... ) and we are inviting as many people as possible in the neighborhood to come and share pancakes and a fun safe evening. We'll be passing out flyers in the neighborhood beginning next week. We will certainly need your help. There is a sign-up sheet downstairs in the Parish Hall. There is a great variety of tasks. Please volunteer to help with this outreach event. We need you .

Palm Branches- Please bring your palms from last Palm Sunday to church this Sunday (February 15) and next (February 22). These will be burned at the close of the Shrove Tuesday Event in preparation for Ash Wednesday.

Applesauce- After Women's Bible Study we will be making applesauce to be frozen for the Shrove Tuesday Supper. Please come with a bag (or two) of apples and plastic containers.

Christian Education Christ and Culture: The next cultural influence we'll tackle...beginning this Sunday... is Hedonism. No more need be said. See you there.
I think that is all

In Christ,
