                                     TWELVE TRIBES OF ISRAEL


                           This month we will talk about the 8th son of Jacob and the
                   second son of Zilpah. Asher was the father of the tribe noted for its
                   beautiful women. The people settled in the western area of Galilee
                   between Mount Carmel and Phoenicia and was an area known for
                   its rich fertile land and supplied much of Israel’s needs particularly
                   from oil from the olive trees. Interesting to note that the town of
                   Mount Carmel in California is of similar natured and must have
                   been named from this biblical town.
   GAD                     Equating the Hebrew name of Asher with fortune or happi-
                   ness, the allusion to the prosperity is emphasized in Jacob’s bless-
                   ing;
EIGHTH                     Asher’s bread shall be rich and he shall yield royal dainties.
                   GENESIS 49:20
   SON             And in the blessing of Moses;
                           Most blessed be the sons of Asher;
    OF                     May he be the favorite of his brothers, may he dip his foot in
                   oil.
                           May your door bolts be iron and copper, and your security
 JACOB             last all your days.
                           DEUTERONOMY 33:24
                   Going back to the High Priest’s breastplate…the tribal gemstone is
                   the Agate, and the flag color is violet with the symbol of an olive
                   tree on it.
                   The tribal area was developed in comparative tranquility and peace.
                   Asher became part of the northern kingdom and in 732 B.C.E., was
                   conquered along with the other northern tribes of Israel. Legends of
                   the remnants of the tribe of Asher were supposedly found in the
                   northwest part of Kabul in Afghanistan and descended into the In-
                   dus valley of India as late as the middle of the last century.

                                                        THE GIFT OF MUSIC

 "Time can bring you down, time can bend your knees. Time can break your heart, have you begging please. Beyond the door there's
 peace I'm sure, And I know there'll be no more tears in heaven."
 These lyrics were penned in response to tragedy, when guitarist Eric Clapton's son Conor fell to his death from a New York high-
 rise window. The music helped him heal.
 In 1994 the city of Sarajevo was daily under siege. Mortars and artillery fire instantly transformed once beautiful buildings into
 rubble. Sarajevo's citizens were frightened, weary and increasingly
 despondent. Then, one February day, a mortar shell exploded in the market killing 68 civilians. Many more were wounded and
 maimed from the blast.
 A cellist with the Sarajevo symphony could no longer stand the chaos. He took his cello to the market, sat down amidst the rubble
 and played a concert. When he finished, he simply took up his instrument and left.
 Every day, for 67 days, he came to the market. Every day he played a concert. It was his gift to the city. He did it because he felt his
 community must find a way to survive, and music can bring hope.
 Music is a great gift. When I need to start my day in the right frame of mind, sometimes I'll sing. Music aligns my thoughts and
 emotions; my mind and spirit. When I awake in the middle of the night, I go back to sleep best if I sing in my head. Music calms
 and centers. When I find myself experiencing a moment of happiness, I'll sometimes sing out loud. (It works best when others are
 not present.) Music expresses joy like nothing else can.
 One of the greatest cellists of all time was Pablo Casals. He exiled himself from his native Spain during the regime of Francisco
 Franco and became a world citizen and a great humanitarian. Casals passionately desired that the world exist in peace and harmony.         PRAY
 He said once that if all the orchestras in the world were to play Beethoven's 9th Symphony simultaneously, then peace would come
 to the world.                                                                                                                              FOR
 I wonder if that is true. But if not peace, then perhaps joy might come. Or hope. Or healing.
 It's the gift of music.

Discernment Process - Where [there is] no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy [is] he. Proverbs
29:18 (KJV) God is leading New Hope UMC. We have asked Him and given Him back His church. We are seeing Him lead
in teachings, direction, people we meet and contact. It is so exciting! The church council approved our Friendship Ministry
and we will let you know the launch date as the plans come together. In addition we have a volunteer ministry at Hospice House and area nursing homes,
plans to launch some new small groups and we hope to conduct a revival at New Hope in September. 3 musical groups are interested along with several
guest speakers. If you feel God is leading you to share some ideas or areas where you feel as though New Hope should explore, please let us know. It's
exciting times at New Hope as we Share the Hope and Truth of Jesus.

Evangelism Month - July was marked as evangelism month. We have witnessed several people attend our church for the first time or in a very long
time. Praise God for answering our prayers! There is nothing special about July. May we continue inviting and asking others all the time, as Jesus com-
manded to "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." Matthew
28:19 (NRSV).
