C-2 Church Wednesday, June 12, 2019 The Press-Dispatch Continued in next column Continued in next column Continued from page 1 "A kitten is chiefly re- markable for rushing about like mad at nothing whatev- er, and generally stopping before it gets there"—Ag- nes Repplier. This week, PAWS is fea- turing a personable little feline named Heartthrob, who is an inquisitive little gal to say the least. She is always pouncing and chas- ing after anything or noth- ing in her path. She is a pe- tite little ball of fur that is multi-colored white, black, gray and orange, with stripes running through- out. The tip of her nose is adorned with a tiny black heart and white whiskers, which is another cute fea- ture of this little girl. To adopt Heartthrob, call 812- 354-9894. As always, we urge you to adopt from your local shelter, as there are many kittens and dogs available at a very reasonable cost.

Wisdom from Above (13) "If you are wise and understand God's ways, prove it by living an honor- able life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. (14) But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambi- tion in your heart, don't cov- er up the truth with boast- ing and lying. (15) For jeal- ousy and selfishness are not God's kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, un- spiritual, and demonic. (16) For wherever there is jeal- ousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind. (17) But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mer- cy and good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere. (18) And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness" ( James 3:13-18). Our Mission Statement: Loving the 99, always look- ing for the one. Gary Pancake, Pastor Chris McLaughlin, Re- porter Holy Ghost which is given unto us. No chastening for the present seemeth to be joy- ous, but grievous: neverthe- less afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteous- ness unto them which are ex- ercised thereby. My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; knowing [this], that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let pa- tience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. Blessed is the man that en- dureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest up- on me. . . . For when I am weak, then am I strong. If at any time you have no church to attend, feel free and join us for services. I am sure you will leave be- ing blessed.

Main Street Petersburg 812-354-6775 Regular services: Sunday school 9:30 a.m. and worship service and the Lord's Sup- per at 10 :30 a.m. John 13 Yesterday during our ser- mon time, we reflected on the moment in Jesus' minis- try where the savior of the world takes on the form of a servant, in the lowest form, and washed the dirty feet of his disciples. It is such a spe- cial moment in the ministry of Jesus and the narrative of John's Gospel. The reason, there is a veil that covers the surface of the narrative as we see Jesus travel the ancient world of Israel and the Greco-Roman empire, we see what Jesus is doing (teaching, miracle, signs, etc.), but John also seems to keep the true meaning from us building up to the end. At John 13 though, Jesus is sharing the last meal with his closest followers, the twelve, and he chooses to give them another sign, and he does so by washing their feet. But the most significant part in the scene is the chal- lenge that comes after the act. Jesus challenges his fol- lowers to do the same. He tells his disciples to do just as he had done, to wash feet. VINCENT CHRISTIAN CHURCH 8264 E. State Rd. 56 Sunday morning worship and the Lord's supper to be a Sunrise service at 7 a.m.; evening worship at 6:30 p.m. Study: Ephesians Chapter 4. This Sunday is Father's Day. You are welcome to attend these services. Father's Day Today is a special day to honor our earthly fathers. The greatest thing we can do as a Father is found in God's Holy word. "And, Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruc- tion of the Lord" (Ephesians 6:4, NASB). Because He lives. John Manges, Minister However, if we just believe Jesus is telling us to literal- ly wash feet, we narrow the view of this moment. Jesus is not just after us to wash feet but instead, he is beckoning us to love our neighbor and be a servant of all no matter who they are and no matter how dirty the work. And Je- sus leaves his disciples with these words in verse 17; "Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them." Let us follow Jesus' example by serving and loving our neighbors. Everyone welcome. DJ Bryant, Pastor Church of Christ BRENTON CHAPEL CHURCH OF CHRIST 1194 E. CR 400 N.

The man who thinks more of his Sunday School class than he does of his sleep. The man who is more concerned about winning souls for Christ than he is about winning worldly honor. Chad Searls, Pastor
