For there is nothing brisker than his life when in motion"— Christopher Smart. This week, PAWS is fea- turing a striking young kit- ten named Frankie, who had a difficult start in life, but all that has changed now that he receives dai- ly care and a healthy diet. Frankie has a submissive personality, but loves af- fection and human touch. He has medium length ti- ger-striped fur with per- fect white accents. His aqua eyes convey warmth and affection. To adopt this handsome feline, call 812- 354-9894.

God is so good. To him that soweth righ- teousness shall be a sure re- ward. A fter a long time the lord of those servants co- meth, and reckoneth with them. And so he that had re- ceived five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliv- eredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained be- side them five talents more. His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faith- ful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou in- to the joy of thy lord. We must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: hence- forth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righ- teous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. If at any time you have no church to attend, feel free and join us for services. I am sure you will leave be- BIBLE BAPTIST CHURCH An Independent Baptist Church 4995 N. Co. Rd. 850 E.

Mark Wade, Deacon Christian Christian FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH 1400 E. 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. This last Sunday was Fa- ther's day, and like Mother's day it is a great time that we have to celebrate some won- derful parents in our lives. Some of us are left to re- member the parents we had as they have gone on from this life. However, one thing is for certain that we see now more than ever, ma- ny young people around us have lacked good parents, especially good fathers. The home life now more than ever lacks the pres- ence of good and strong male leadership and influ- ence, and many young men are left growing up with- out father all together. Now more than ever we need men who will step up to be good fathers. Men who answer Je- sus' call to carry their cross, and show those who grow around them how to do the same. Who will be strong men of God, and lead others in doing that. We have a heavenly fa- ther who has given us more than we could ever ask for or imagine, and given us the ability to lead and influ- ence others to experience the same. Let us pray this year that more men would answer the call to not only be fathers but be spiritual fa- thers in place of those who are without a father at all. And pray that a generation would rise to fill in the gaps that we miss now. Everyone welcome. DJ Bryant, Pastor VINCENT CHRISTIAN CHURCH 8264 E. State Rd. 56 Sunday morning worship and the Lord's supper at 9:30 a.m.; Bible school at 10 :30 a.m.; evening worship at 6:30 p.m. Study: Ephesians Chapter 4. You are invited to take part in these services. Continuing Thoughts about Home Here are the other three thoughts about the Home from a London Magazine. The quotes are from Out of My Treasure, volume two, 1965. "Home—The center of our affection, round which our heart's best wishes twine." "Home—The place where our stomachs get three square meals a day and our hearts a thousand." "Home—The only place on earth where the faults and failings of humanity are hidden under the sweet man- tle of charity." Since there has been and there is an attack on the home, many find the pro- ceeding definitions only a dream. May we return to God's plan for the home. One man and one women married for life and seeking to follow God's Word. One may start with Ephesians 6:1-4. Because He lives.

Hosea 5:10 compares the princes of Judah to those who remove landmarks or move boundaries, and says they will be punished be- cause they have angered God. As our children grow, we set limits on them to keep them out of trouble, and from getting hurt or becom- ing ill. God does the same for us. Through His Word, we understand what those boundaries are. When we cross the lines into places we shouldn't be, we sin. This does us harm as individuals and as a nation. Are we making sure our personal boundaries are se- curely set with an Immov- able Force and staying in- side where we will be kept from trouble? Or are we crossing those lines and flirting with danger, al- lowing evil to come in and wreak havoc ?

Abraham wandered and worshiped alone. Dan- iel dined and prayed alone. Elijah sacrificed and wit- nessed alone. Jeremiah prophesied and wept alone. Jesus loved and died alone. And of the lonely way His dis- ciples should walk He said, "Straight is the gate and nar- row is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it" (Matthew 7:14). He went on to say, "If ye were of the world, the world would love his own, but because ye are not of the world, there- fore the world hateth you." Wanted today: men and women who will obey the leading of the Holy Spirit at the cost of fortune, friends and life itself. Chad Searls, Pastor TR AYLOR UNION CHURCH 4107 N. CR 1000 E. Otwell Sunday morning service at 9:30 a.m.; children's Sunday school at 10 a.m. "Therefore, I urge you, broth- ers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a liv- ing sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God. This is your true and prop- er worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be trans- formed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will" (Romans 12: 1-2, NIV ). Dennis and Lisa Patton, Pastors
