This week, PAWS is fea- turing a royal young feline named Solomon, who en- joys sitting on the highest perches in the cat room, and professes to be full of wisdom, wealth and pow- er.

Solomon is a short-haired tabby, with plush golden fur with white markings, has sparkling topaz-colored eyes, is ap- proximately seven months old, neutered and has all his shots. He is a self-pro- claimed excellent mouser and can be adopted by call- ing 812-354-9894. PAWS WEEK PAWS WEEK Pet of the SOLOMON How is your spiritual life lately? Thou wilt revive me.

All times are CDT. We want to pass along a special note this week; which is that we will not be having our study of Philippi- ans this Wednesday. In fact, we will be postponing the study until the first Wednes- day in October. This is nec- essary so that we can start setting up (in our fellow- ship area) many of the do- nated items for the upcom- ing charity sale that occurs at the end of the month, Sat- urday, September 28. How- ever, note that the children will continue their new study with games and more. I also want to let you know about our special Sunday coming in October; we're calling it "Jersey Day." It will be on Sunday, Oct. 13. On that particular Sunday, we encourage you to come wearing your favorite team jersey, T-shirt, sweatshirt, etc, and stay for the fellow- ship afterwards. We're call- ing our meal/fellowship af- terwards "tailgating." It should be a great and excit- ing time with lots of great food and fellowship. Mark your calendars and make plans to attend. If you have never visit- ed Crossroads before, we would like for you to visit, es- pecially on October 13. Re- member, if you do not have a church home, we would love for you to choose Cross- roads.

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. A couple weeks ago, I wrote about giving up. More importantly not giving up. Some of us feel like our life is like that project in the ga- rage, or the jigsaw puzzle on the table, unfinished. Unfin- ished without the urgency or the motivation to finish. And I encouraged, don't give up. You see Paul tells us in the VINCENT CHRISTIAN CHURCH 8264 E. State Rd. 56 Sunday morning worship and the Lord's supper at 9:30 WINSLOW CHRISTIAN CHURCH Corner of Lafayette and Walnut Pastor 812-753-3539 Sunday school 9:30 a.m.; morning worship 10 :30 a.m.; We extend a warm wel- come to everyone.

The Apostle Paul said, "Godly sorrow brings re- pentance that leads to sal- vation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death" (II Corinthians 7:10). Because He lives. John Manges, Minister scriptures that we are hard- pressed on every side. That seemingly in life, we feel like life at times is coming down on us from every an- gle. When that happens, we just want to give up. But that isn't where the verse ends. In fact, what Paul actually says is "We are hard-pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in de- spair. What Paul wants us to know that in Christ, though we are faced with the harsh- est realities, our hope goes deeper and farther than our greatest despair. The hope and the promise is what we carry around. If you read fur- ther in II Corinthians 4:8 -12 you come to see that though we bear the burden of death in this life, it is Jesus' life that is revealed. Don't give up. Grace and Peace. Everyone welcome. DJ Bryant, Pastor Church of Christ BRENTON CHAPEL CHURCH OF CHRIST 1194 E. CR 400 N.

Psalm 77:19 says, "Your way was in the sea and Your paths in the mighty waters, and Your footprints may not be known." God leads us through hard times and tribulation events so we will trust in Him. We are always surprised by what He does because we don't un- derstand Him fully. But the trials we face bring character, molding us into the image of Christ, whom we represent. As long as we keep trust- ing and thanking Him, obey- ing as we should, we will al- ways be given dry land to cross through the raging waters. "Lord, help me never to take what you do for grant- ed. Show us the work You have done that we may praise You. Thank You for the pre- cious gift of mercy and atone- ment"—In Jesus' name, Amen.

Samuel Kinnaman, Pastor Doris Catt, Reporter from it" (Proverbs 22:6). Some parents say, "We will not influence our children in making choices and deci- sions in matters of religion. Why not? The ads will! The press will! The schools will! The politicians will! We use our influence over flowers, vegetables and cat- tle. We use our influence in the work place. We use our influence with our friends. Why would we not pour out our energies to influence our children in ways that will benefit them for life and for all eternity? When we bring new life into this world, we are not only responsible to care for these little ones, but we are responsible to shape their futures. One day, they will be making choices that will impact society, and they will spend eternity SOME- WHERE. We should show them how important matters of the heart are by example (faithfully attending church and setting a Christian ex- ample set in the home) and by careful training.
