Classroom Assignments: (if you see an issue simply let me know)
108 – Agape

Of course, the 8am class is certainly free to meet at 8am should you desire to do so, understanding the situation I’ve stated here.)

TIME MAGAZINE: U.S. suicide rates are at their highest since World War II
Even while gone on vacation, I was contacted by no less than 5 families who have either suffered the loss of a loved one to suicide, or have a loved on the brink of taking their own life.
Certainly, the topic of suicide is central to the Watts family. But that’s not the only reason I, on occasion, mention articles such as this one. For those who may think otherwise, it’s a heart-breaking fact that suicide is at epidemic levels. Read the brief article from Time Magazine here.
QUOTE of the WEEK
“The veracity of the Christian faith stands or falls with the resurrection of Jesus.” Mike Licona
LAUGHTER IS GOOD MEDICINE
This is one of my favorites… (the televangelist in this photo, Peter Popoff, was exposed years ago with wearing a radio device in his ear so that an employee – his wife – could tell him names of people in the audience as well as maladies they had listed on prayer cards.)
GRACE NOTES: Why Pray? Does it really make any difference?
This week’s devotional thought includes my response to my daughter as we talked about question above. Read the blog here.
