As summer continues in full swing here in the Old North State, it's a great chance to take a breather and assess where you are in life and how your summer is going. Now, to assess your life sounds like a huge task as some of us might look at that task and balk immediately, mincing at the thought of doing some life assessment. A time of reflection can be beneficial for us as children of God in seeing how we are living as His children, in His world.
I've done some of this the past few weeks and found it to be incredibly helpful.
Peachtree folks gathered for worship at the church on a beautiful Sunday morning. The sanctuary flowers were grown and arranged by Barbara Privette-Hardison in memory of her husband, John Beverly Privette. The adult choir sang, "Take My Life, Lead Me Lord" under the direction of the pastor.
Beverly Wilson's sermon to the children was about people making excuses. She shared with them some ridiculous excuses that parents make for their children who are absent from school. Then she talked about excuses that people gave to Jesus when He called them to follow Him. He still calls us today to follow Him.
Several youth and chaperones who attended Mfuge from Red Oak Baptist Church shared stories of their adventures doing missions projects in areas near Greenville, SC. Some did yard work and some helped in shelters and nursing homes while others participated in recreation and witnessed with children. Rev. Nate James, Associate Pastor/Minister of Youth and Children, emphasized the theme for the camp, "Unashamed." The youth really enjoyed the camp and were very thankful for the love and support from the church which allowed them this opportunity.
Donna Milligan reports that "she recently got out the old garden sprayer and filled it with weed killer. The first pump revealed the wand had dry-rotted over the long winter months and weed killing would have to wait for a trip to the hardware store. Meanwhile she decided to just pour the expensive concoction the best she could onto the offending weeds in her driveway and call it a loss. Days later on a trip to town, she and Terry picked up a replacement wand kit. Time soon rolled around for the grass to be cut again and Donna was kind of excited to use her newly-repaired sprayer.
