Main Street Petersburg 812-354-6775 One of my favorite lines from a book, comes from the Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. Lucy asks their new friend Mr. Beaver, "Is he safe? " inquiring about this king they had heard of named Aslan. Mr. Beaver, pithy an- swer, "Oh no he's not safe, but he's good." Sometimes I won- der if we are just hoping that life in Christ will be safe. We can come to him, get salva- tion, feel good, and eventual- ly go to heaven when the time comes. However, that's rare- ly the case. Imagine the rich young rule or the other young man who came begging to fol- low Jesus, but once confront- ed by the reality that the fol- lowers of Jesus lacked a bed and shelter, or even that one VINCENT CHRISTIAN CHURCH 8264 E. State Rd. 56 Morning worship and the Lord's supper at 9:30 a.m.; Sunday school at 10 :30 a.m.; Evening worship at 6:30 p.m. Presently we are studying the topic: "Practical Christianity." We will meet in accordance to social distancing and face masks. You are invited to wor- ship with us. Love "Love will find a way, indif- ference an excuse." "Whatever other com- mandments there may be, are summed up in this one rule: 'Love your neighbor as your- self.'" "Love does no harm to its neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the Law" (Romans 9b-10). Because He lives. John Manges, Minister 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 welcome to everyone. Dr. Robert Asa, Minister would have to sell everything he had. The truth is, following Jesus wasn't safe then, and it isn't safe now. Still to this day when he calls a man, he bids him, come and die. Following Jesus means actively dying to ourselves and living for him. We have to decide that there is no safe shallow end follow- ing him. To enjoy a rich life in Christ, we have to cut the rope.

"Prejudice or hatred of any person because of their ra- cial ethic or religious back- ground is wrong. God labels it as sin. A fter all, God created every one of us, and when we hate someone who is different from us, we are hating some- one whom God has made and who is valuable in His sight. Every human being is created in God's image, and although sin has blurred that image in all of us, every single one of us still bears the mark of our Cre- ator. Jesus didn't die to save just one race or one group of people; Jesus died for all"— Billy Graham.

"Love is large and incred- ibly patient. Love is gentle and consistently kind to all. It refuses to be jealous when blessing comes to someone else. Love does not brag about one's achievements nor inflate its own importance. Love does not traffic in shame and dis- respect, nor selfishly seek its own honor. Love is not easily irritated or quick to take of- fense" (I Corinthians 13:4-5). Check the website for loca- tion and time for upcoming events, Location: 601 S. 9th Street, Petersburg.

"I love the Lord, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live" (Psalm 116:1,2). There is a beautiful thought picture that goes through the mind when reading these two verses. It starts with a lost soul crying out to God in re- pentance, and our precious heavenly Father bending low with his ear turned to the cry of the lost, hearing and an- swering that cry. At that mo- ment, when He inclined His ear unto that lost soul, His ear continued to listen. He never stopped listening. The psalmist realized this truth and said "Therefore will I call upon Him as long as I live." Pe- ter understood this truth also when he wrote, "The eyes of the Lord are over the righ- teous, and His ears are open PIKE COUNTY CENTER FOR WOMEN'S MINISTRIES Phone —812-582-8222 Office hours: Open Mon- day and Friday, 9 a.m. till noon; Thursday open from 6 - 8 p.m.; Tuesday and Wednes- day closed.

Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the mes- senger of the covenant whom you desire will come," says the Lord Almighty. But who can endure the day of his com- ing? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner's fire or a launder- er's soap. He will sit as a re- finer and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and re- fine them like gold and silver. Then the Lord will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness and the offer- ings of Judah and Jerusalem will be acceptable to the Lord as in days gone by as in former years" (Malachi 3: 1-4).
