Sunday, August 15 | 10 am - 12:15 pm | Outpost We are impatient people looking for immediate action and instant gratification, so much so that God’s patient ways sometimes confuse, perplex, and bother us. We are impatient, but God is deliberate, steady, and long-suffering. The way to become a spiritually mature Christian is to spend so much time with Christ that we begin to think and act like him, to spend so much time with him that we take on what the apostle Paul called “the mind of Christ.” PEP Club Welcomes Vocalist Diane DiStasio August 10 | 6:30 pm | Haney Hall All persons 55 and over are invited for a covered dish dinner fol- lowed by a program with vocalist Diane DiStasio and her guitar ac- companist Angel Pontier.

A Note from Our Lay Leader Mark Batterson, author of “Primal: A Quest for the Lost Soul of Christianity” asks the reader the following question: “Does your heart break for the same things that ‘break’ the heart of God?” This poses an important question, “What are the things that ‘break the Heart of God?’ 1. Could it be dissension among His People? 2. Could it be individual or group failure to take advantage of the opportunities offered us as part of ‘the Kingdom on Earth?’ 3. Could it be a sense of ‘lethargy’ among His people? 4. Could it be our failure to celebrate the ‘Victories in Christ’ that occur miraculously every day? As Lay Leader for the church, I want to challenge each one to offer your thoughts on what issue(s) that you think might ‘break the heart of God’ and break your heart as well. From time to time I will be responding here in the Beam with thoughts and reflections on this and other subjects. I invite you to send me your thoughts and or questions to email@example.com.
