Fear

My four-year-old grandson is nearly fearless. He launches himself at you—or off the couch—with all the reckless abandon of someone who still doesn’t quite understand the physics of the world or such fundamental concepts as gravity and the effects of sudden, forced stops on the human body. But he’s learning. And we’re trying to educate him about these things without him having to experience too much injury.

I said he was nearly fearless. Earlier this year he accidentally slammed his own little finger in the pantry door. My daughter heard him screaming and found him standing bewildered in a pool of his own blood, dripping from his finger. Fast-forward through the trip to the emergency room and the subsequent sedation surgery to rebuild his little finger, and the weeks of his hand being bandaged and re-bandaged repeatedly.

There are Bibles available on our Welcome Center. These are first of all for our visitors. We’re glad you’re here and would love for you to have a Bible. Also, if you need a Bible or know someone who needs a Bible, please take one. They are meant to be given out! Pocket-size copies of the Gospel of John are also available for yourself and to give to others.

If you would like for us to have your contact information, you can fill out the Contact Card that is attached to your bulletin. Then after the service tear it off and drop it in the Offering Box located at the back of the Sanctuary on the Ushers Table. Also, on the back of the Contact Card there is a place for Prayer Requests. These can also be placed in the Offering Box.
