“But shun profane and vain babblings; for they will increase unto more ungodliness.”
2 Tim. 2:16
Hopefully you have had a wonderful week, and you are feeling the goodness of the Lord right now, and you are thanking Him for another beautiful day. Even if you have not had that kind of week, you still have ample reason(s) to give God thanks. Apostle Paul said we are to thank him for whatever situation we find ourselves in. The songwriter says, “Be not dismayed whatever betide, God will take care of you. Hope you continue to have a wonderful day.
One of my Email buddies sent me a lengthy email, but I chose the choice part to share with you:
“Work like you don’t need the money.” “Love like nobody has ever hurt you.” “Dance like nobody is watching.” “Sing like nobody is listening.” “Live as if this was paradise on earth.”
Mt. Zion AME Church
A missionary/trustee program was held at Mt. Zion AME Church in the Bloomingvale community on Sunday, Sept. 30. The speaker for the morning was Minister Moshell Hicks, one of the associate ministers at Bethesda Missionary Baptist Church. Minister Hicks brought us an excellent anointed sermon on missions and what it means to be a missionary. He was accompanied by his wife, Mrs. Paulando Hicks, and their daughter, Courtney. The other daughter, Danielle, is away at college. Minister Moshell and his wife practice greatly what they preach. It was an honor to have them at Mt. Zion where Rev. Herman Ford, Jr. is the pastor.
