Something to meditate on during this holiday weekend:
Hear, my child, and be wise, and direct your mind in the way.
Do not be among winebibbers, or among gluttonous eaters of meat;
for the drunkard and the glutton will come to poverty,
and drowsiness will clothe them with rags.
Don’t fret. All that turkey will make us drowsy, but it’s only temporary. Happy Thanksgiving!
Remember, the church office is closed Thursday and Friday, and there will be no other activities in the building those days. In an emergency, the pastor can be reached at (865) 985-2469.
Because of the Thanksgiving holiday, we’ll not have 7 p.m. Bible study again until Wednesday, Dec. 3. We’ll spend Wednesday nights in December closely examining the stories surrounding the birth of Jesus, including an exploration of what modern astronomy tells us about the Star of Bethlehem.
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the sky displays his handiwork.
Day after day it speaks out;
night after night it reveals his greatness.
