Eden Baptist News
February 2022, Dear Eden Members, Attendees, and Friends: As I sit here typing this note to you, it comes to mind that this annual letter could be letter # 34 although it might be #33 as we didn’t have an annual meeting in 2021 thanks to Covid. With that being said,...
Greetings to Eden Members, Fellow Worshipers and Friends: It doesn’t seem possible that another year has almost completed itself but as we know, time marches on and waits for no one. We have moved on through the Thanksgiving Holiday so I trust you had a special time...
It wasn’t long ago we entered a new month in the Year of the Lord, 2022. Well, we are in day two of the October which makes it day # 275. In the next few weeks we will deal with “Columbus Day” followed by Veteran’s Day, then move on to Thanksgiving Day, and finally Christmas Day. So there will be lots of events happening around each of those days I believe I saw a post on Face Book where someone had taken a picture of Christmas stuff in a major department store already. They were displaying disbelief and disgust in their comments. Maybe you’ve also seen such early merchandising. Sadly, none of what you will see in the stores now and even as we get closer to Christmas Day will have much if anything related to the real day of Christmas. I thought it would be good to check the events in history for October 2. 1985 Movie actor Rock Hudson Died. 1965 Gatorade is invented at the University of Florida 1944 The Warsaw uprising ended 1967 Thurgood Marshall was sworn in as the first black Supreme Court Justice 1961 On October 1 Roger Maris breaks the home run record with #61 1781 Benjamin Randall founds a congregation of Freewill Baptists in Woolwich, Maine, baptizing five people. He notes that although there are over three hundred present at the baptism, “there were no more than three that ever before saw baptism administered by immersion.” (Christian History Institute. org) (The website name would have no spaces) When it comes to Bible verses on the internet, when one does a “Google” search you find a huge number of sites speaking to a daily Bible verse. When I searched for “Bible verse of the day for today” the count in the upper left of the page showing the search results indicated there are 96,100,000 “hits” and it did that in 0.56 seconds. That blows my mind yet at the same time pleased there are so many choices. One of the headings on the page was: “What’s a good Bible verse for today?” When I clicked on the drop-down menu, this verse appeared. I think it might be a favorite verse of many, even those of you who might see this post. Philippians 4:6-7 ESV Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. (7) And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. In light of all that is happening in the world today, we need some words of comfort and encouragement. The weather events in recent days, the Ukraine situation and the words coming from Russia, the mid-east and the unsettledness we find there, our own nation and the issues we read about in the papers or on the news. It is a very unsettling time to say the least. Is it really possible for a Christian to be anxious for nothing? I believe It is possible as long as we have the resource of believing prayer. There are, of course, some parameters within these verses. My prayer is that you will meditate on the message found in Philippians 4:6-7, and even read that whole chapter as it speaks of God’s Provisions. Where you might be feeling anxious about some issue in your life today you have the powerful resource of “believing prayer.” The words of Jesus in the upper room on Thursday (The Last Supper) the day before He was to be crucified: John 14:27 ESV Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. If you are happen to read this and are in the area of 155 Old Bar Harbor Road, Salisbury Cove at our worship time of 9:00a, drop in, we’d love to have you enhance our worship time. If you can’t make it today, perhaps another Lord’s Day you will be able to join with us. Remember, you can hear / see Susan’s prelude on Gerry Mann’s FB page and also @ 8:50a on Eden Baptist Church’s FB page as a lead in to the remainder of our worship service which begins at 9:00 a.m. Have a great Lord’s Day🙏❤🎼📖✝🙏
