from . . . Dick Sartwell, interim pastor

February contains a few bright spots (like Presidents Day and Valentines Day), but for many people this short month isn’t short enough. Oregonians in the Willamette Valley understand that our frequent rains are the price we pay for lush vegetation and gorgeous flowering shrubs. But sometimes February feels like the low point of the year. We commonly let November trigger thankfulness, but I want to suggest we also use February to encourage our gratitude. Here’s a start:

I’m thankful for…

  • The large number of volunteers who have stepped forward to help us do ministry together.
  • The wonderful news from our stewards that for the first time in a few years we were able to approve a balanced budget without drawing on reserve funds. Your faithful giving enabled this.
  • The large number of you who have made the effort to be involved in our all-church meetings to work at clarifying who we are as a church as we prepare for new leadership.
  • The words of scripture that speak to our lives in powerful ways. This month in our morning services we’ll be looking at some great texts filled with encouragement.

Be aware in these weeks of what is encouraging you and thank the Lord for it!

From . . . Sherry Macy
Hal Magee, from Bible Foundation, answered my request to pick up three boxes of Bibles. I made this call sooner than usual because Ken Howe had just dropped off two boxes as part of his and Ann’s preparation for their move to Friendsview. “Can they use a German Bible?” Ken asked? Bible Foundation accepts “all non-gooey Bibles,” answered Jerry Kingery, who has led this ministry for many years. They gladly take damaged and partial Bibles in any language. Hal told me Bibles are sometimes given out in parts rather than let someone leave empty handed. (Hal also mentioned that he and his wife were married at NFC 60 years ago!)
Somehow I missed the postcard this year, reminding me to broadcast Bible Foundation’s October Bible Drive. Here it is November, but they won’t mind if we encourage Bible donation any month of the year. Some of you cleared your shelves without my encouragement and donated anyway, enough to fill that third box. Thank you! Now let’s give Hal an excuse to come back soon. Our Bible collection box (in the passage between sanctuary and library) awaits!
