Precious Children of God:

 

We pray this note finds you and yours safe and dry through the storms swirling around us - the storms of weather with names and the unnamed storms of affliction, temptation and doubt. May each of us give glory to God with a persevering profession of His wondrous love and grace in our lives. Our prayers go up to God Almighty for all who are struggling under the disastrous impact of hurricane Florence. We also think of the millions suffering in the face of so many natural and man-made calamities all over the world that constantly absorb the nightly news.

 

Do these catastrophes portend an acceleration of God’s timetable? Is Jesus returning soon? Are these the End Times? Wherever we may be in our understanding on these questions, we pray that our Lord will give us the faith and the Christian determination to live like He is coming today...every day! God help us! And, no matter what God’s calendar says, none of us are promised tomorrow here on earth, and be it today or ten years or 100 years from now, it is but a swift ending to our opportunities of service and testimony down here. God grant that we live in such a way that all whom He brings across our path, strangers and friends and family alike, will witness His mercy and His love and His salvation in our life! Amen!

 

John 14:2-3 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to myself; that where I am, there you may be also. (AKJV)

 

Matthew 24:42 Watch therefore: for you know not what hour your Lord does come. (AKJV)

 

The annual production of our Christian Christmas Carols for nursing home ministry has begun. This is 12 Christ-centered hymns and the story from the Gospels of the birth of our Lord in large-print. The accompanying CDs are provided in an instrumental and a vocal version. The DVD includes the soundtrack of all twelve carols and a reading of the associated scriptures. The visuals are photos and video clips of manger scenes and Christmas yard art.

 

NEW! We have added another book of large-print scripture to our list of free materials made especially for Christian ministry in care facilities. We titled this one, The Love of God. It is 28 pages of New Testament passages encompassing the topics of What Is Love, Love Fulfills the Law, God Loves You, Love God, Love Your Neighbor, and Conclusion.

 

If you need these or any of our other nursing home ministry materials (at no cost to you) just call, email, text or write. (NOTE: We suggest that you ask for the Christmas materials before the end of November.) For more information visit our website at www.christianconcourse.org.

 

To the volunteers and staff of care facilities all over the U. S. who help us place these nursing home ministry tools in the hands of their residents, and to those of you who contribute to our work through prayer and finances to make it possible, we say a heart-felt and sincere, "THANK YOU!"

 

Love in Christ,
