Friday Five

1. Saturday is TIME CHANGE. Set your clocks FORWARD one hour before you go to bed. That way you won’t be late for church.

2. This Sunday’s message is from Jonah chapter 2 – “When You Hit Bottom, Look Up” and is bound to be very encouraging. Bring a friend. I’m really enjoying this series! BTW, do you think the fish in this picutre could swallow a man?

3. On a personal note, as you know I have been on a sugar fast for about 7 weeks now. This has resulted in an unexpected, but positive, side-effect – my craving for all other food has diminished as well. Apparently my blood-sugar levels are in balance which means I am not craving food all the time. My appetite is under control. I am eating less (but plenty enough) and feel satisfied after eating good foods. I’m not craving sugars, fats, or junk. My waistline is getting smaller too. What's not to like about that?

4. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: In heaven, it will not be those who knew the most, but those who loved the most that will receive reward (I Corinthians 13:2).

5. ANOTHER THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Any church that has become content with not growing is saying to a lost community, “You can die lost.” Let’s never become that kind of church. Church growth requires unselfish members who are willing to sacrifice convenience for the sake of others.

Pastor Ron, I think that fish could take a grown man, and makes me not wanna go swim in the ocean!

It's called a Whale Shark.

Catfish have been caught in Asia that could swallow a whole man alive. They have even opened one up that swallowed a young boy. What's makes people think that a fish could not swallow a man. Fish in Jonah's time were probably much larger than anything we have seen today.
