"And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mus- tard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall re- move; and nothing shall be im- possible unto you" (Matthew 17:20).

PISGAH G.B. CHURCH 6100 S.

Every- one is welcome. "Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven" (Psalm 119:89). As we survey the world scene with Bible in hand, we know we do not worship an absentee God. He is standing in the shadows of history, still working to bring His plans to completion. Therefore we are not disturbed by the pictures of chaos, violence, bloodshed and war that fill our television screens and flood our news- paper. We know these are the consequences of humanity's evil and sin, caused by rebel- lion against God. Every head- line, every news report con- firms what the prophet Jere- miah said centuries ago: "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wick- ed; who can know it? " ( Jere- miah 17:9). But never forget God will speak history's first word. Ev- ery day, the world moves clos- er to the time when Christ will return. Satan will be defeated, and God's perfect plan will be fulfilled. No matter how fore- boding the future, the Chris- tian knows the end of the sto- ry and it is glorious. Don't lose heart. The best is yet to be. If at any time you have no church to attend, feel free to join us for services. Your pres- ence will be appreciated and I'm sure you will feel the bless- ing of God. May God bless each and everyone. Jerry "Tuffy" Blackwell, Pastor Sharon Kendall, Reporter God alone is worthy of our praise...When we come before God with a thankful heart, ac- knowledging Him for all we have, then we are entering his gates with thanksgiving. When we testify to others with our words and actions of God's provision, then we are enter- ing his court's with praise. "Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come be- fore him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forev- er; his faithfulness, contin- ues through all generations" (Psalm 100 :1-5).

Mark Wade, Deacon FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH 1400 E. Main Street Petersburg 812-354-6775 Sunday morning worship service at 10 :30 a.m. Thanksgiving is a wonder- ful time of year. There's crisp- ness in the air, and usually smiles on faces that officially announce the beginning of the holiday season. Retailers, of course, started promoting the season months ago, and on some level that's troublesome. On the other hand, we don't want to allow commercialization to rob us of the joy the holidays bring. On Thanksgiving Day, take time to process all of the ways you are blessed. Don't worry about the turkey, the pumpkin pie, or any of the other moun- tains of food that will be con- sumed. Just pause. Take time to express your gratitude to your friends, family and espe- cially to God for the blessings VINCENT CHRISTIAN CHURCH 8264 E.

Thanksgiving "Rejoice in the Lord always, I will say it again; Rejoice. Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiv- ing, present your requests to God" (Philippians 4:4-6). "Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise; be thank- ful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good, his mercy is everlasting, and his truth endureth to all gener- ations" (Psalm 100 :4-5). Because He Lives.

Some of them have been influenced by other reli- gions; others simply like the thought of enjoying life's plea- sures indefinitely The Bible, however, is clear; Reincarna- tion isn't true, and the life we are leading now is the only one we will ever live. Once we die, we go into eternity, either into Heaven to be with God forever, or to that place the Bible calls hell, where we will be eternal- ly separated from God and his blessings"—Billy Graham.

"Majestic sweetness sits enthroned upon the Saviour's brow; His head with radiant glories crowned, His lips with grace o'er flow. No mortal can with Him compare among the sons of men; fairer is He than all the fair who fill the heaven- ly train. He saw me plunged in deep distress, and flew to my relief; for me He bore the shameful Cross and carried all my grief. To Him I owe my life and breath and all the joys I have; He makes me triumph over death, and saves me from the grave. Since from His bounty I receive such proofs of love divine, had I a thou- sand hearts to give, Lord, they should all be Thine"—Samu- el Stennett.
