*********************************************

July 11, 2018

Greetings,

Matthew 18: 21-22 "Then Peter came up to Jesus and said, "LORD, how often will my brother or sister sin against me, and I forgive them? As many as seven times?" Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times."

We as individual Christians, and as the Church at Saint Andrews, should approach those who have hurt us with the same grace, forgiveness, and love that God has shown to us through Christ Jesus. We are to forgive others because we ourselves have been forgiving by God. .

Forgiveness is the releasing of our wrath and condemnation in favor of these things:

FORGIVENESS MEANS:

1. Praying for those who have hurt us. (Matthew 5:44)

2. Showing the kind of love that is only possible when we are really abiding in Christ. (Psalm 86:5)

3. Never taking revenge ourselves, but leaving it in God's capable hands. (Romans 12:18-19)

4. Doing good to those who have hurt us. (Luke 6:27-28)

5. Looking first at our own lives, and ensuring that we are not guilty of hurting others. (Luke 17:3)

The above 5 marks are the marks of a person living a Christ-Centered life. We need to remember who God is, "God Is Love".

(Matthew 5:48) "Now let us be perfect, as our heavenly Father is perfect, and work toward offering forgiveness more freely."

Grace & Peace to you all,

Bob Hartell Jr.

 

A Celebration of Life Service for Edith will be Friday, July 13th here at St. Andrew’s at 1:00 p.m. I hope you will join us to celebrate her amazing life!

It will also get us in the habit for when Pastor Dirk arrives on August 5th. Please write your name on the list in the fellowship hall if you need a new one.

Prayer Chain – We are putting together a new prayer chain. Please send Kathy an email, a phone call or a note on her desk, if you would like to be added to the prayer chain. The more prayer warriors we have the better!

Updated Calling Directory – I am currently working on updating our calling directory. If your email, phone number or address has changed please send me a quick email so that it will be correct in our next directory. Thank you for your help!

Disaster Relief

How to give in response to disaster through our connection. When disaster hits, the United Methodist connection responds.
The United Methodist Church is uniquely situated to respond to disasters because of its churches in almost every county and community across the United States and the worldwide Methodist connection with annual conferences, central conferences, and autonomous partner churches on five continents.
As a disaster unfolds, the United Methodist Committee on Relief is in contact with annual conference leadership to offer assistance.
UMCOR is the not-for-profit humanitarian arm of The United Methodist Church and is part of the Board of Global Ministries. Since 1940, UMCOR's mission - providing relief in disaster areas, aiding refugees and confronting the challenges of global health and poverty - has helped heal the hurts of humanity in nearly 100 countries.
