COVID RELAUNCH UPDATE
Face Masks: Just a moment ago, Governor Abbott issued a mandate stating all Texans must wear face masks when in public places, with a few exceptions. You can read the entire KCBD article, which includes the exceptions, here. The 9th exception relates to churches. Erring on the side of caution, BHBC will be asking all attendees to wear a mask.
As stated in the last Navigator, due to the Governors’ (and Lubbock’s) slowing down of reopening, coupled with the spike in local positive testing, both Youth and Children’s activities will not resume on July 12th as originally stated.
JESUS WAS NO SOCIALIST
Please read my blog here. Mankind has, since the beginning of time, been desperately trying to form-fit Jesus into human agendas. A mature and careful study of scripture prevents us from being deceived by cleverly worded arguments that sound right, but are completely wrong.
In my blog I reference a solid article. Here’s an excerpt:
Jesus taught people to be of generous spirit, to care for their families, to help the poor, to assist widows and orphans, to exhibit kindness, and to maintain the highest character. You can translate all that into the dirty business of coercive, vote-buying, politically driven redistribution schemes only if you read the Bible without paying attention — or if you’re willing to distort Jesus’s teachings to advance a political agenda.

QUOTE of the WEEK
“The thing I hate about an argument is that it always interrupts a discussion.” ~ G.K. Chesterton
“We can no more catch a hurricane in a shrimp net or Niagara Falls in a coffee cup than we can grasp the infinity of [God and his love for us].” – Brennan Manning
Oh, ok – one more. 🙂
“Aslan,” said Lucy, “you’re bigger.”“That is because you are older, little one,” answered Aslan.“Not because you are?”“I am not. But every year you grow, you will find me bigger.”(C.S. Lewis’ ‘Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.’)
LAUGHTER IS GOOD MEDICINE
Based on our current national state of affairs…
And, a bonus…
SOUL FOOD: Has God Surrendered His Throne? (Not even close.)
The world (our nation, in particular) appears to be out of control. Both Paul and Peter often included the phrase in their letters, “In way of reminder…” God knows that we are in constant need of being reminded of what is true. Permit me to encourage you by reminding you of what is true. Read my blog here.
Soli Deo Gloria, Nick
