The great Christian pastor and author Warren W. Wiersbe wrote at book called “50 People Every Christian Should Know.” In the very first chapter is the story of Katherine von Bora. Does her name sound familiar? No? How about Martin Luther? Well, Katherine was his wife. She is a wonderful example of an encourager, helper, and at times, the one who tells it like it is so that her husband could continue the work God called him to do. I’d love for you to read a little more about this pastor’s wife. Follow this link to her story. I’d like to take this moment to acknowledge the wonderful women who lovingly support our ministers here at FBC Pfville. The women who, as Warren Wiersbe says, ” make it possible for their husbands to minister… women who must often turn houses into homes, who carry the burdens of their people as well as their own, who do without that 0thers may have, who cheerfully bear criticism and who do it all to the glory of God.” I encourage you to write, email or tell our minister’s wives how much you appreciate them. They are; Linda Washburn, Sandy Roucloux, Sallie Northen, Jennifer Woods, Heather Cottar, Melody Downing, and Brooke McGinty. We are so very lucky to have these ladies serving right next to their husbands. Thank you Ladies, we know our ministers could not do it without you.
I want to remind you that our Summer Bible study is “Armor of God” by Priscilla Shirer. This will begin June 23rd. It will be on Thursday evenings from 7-9pm at the home of Shellynne Wucher. Shellynne will be leading this study. If you would like to register for this study, please contact me or come see us at our table on Sunday morning.You will need to purchase your book for the study, you can do so on Amazon or at LifeWay.
Please check out the Scripture Writing Plan for June. This month the focus is on forgiveness. This will bless your soul. I love sitting down to write out these scriptures. Doing this has helped me stop and really focus on God’s word. I am so thankful for Shannon at http://www.stwblessings.com for sharing these with us. And don’t feel guilty if you can not do it everyday. Do it when you can, I promise, you won’t regret it.
As we head in to summer, I know it can get hectic; kids are home, we take family vacations, and there is lots of fun times with friends and family at the pool.
