…and a warm welcome to St. Joseph’s. It will be an exciting week for many, Day Camps begin tomorrow morning from 10 am until 3 pm and every day until Friday for kids 4 to 12 years old. There is still time to register. The cost is $35 and only $45 per family. This year’s theme is Luke Street. There will be plenty of fun for the children and snacks and drinks are included. We ask that each child just bring their own lunch.
With Day Camps going on, Wednesday’s Men’s Bible Study and Friday’s S.H.E. Ladies will not be taking place.
Next Sunday July 21st 10:30 a.m…….Holy Communion
Amos 8: 1-12
“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6
Please be Reminded
There is no Sunday School and the Music Team is taking a break during the month of July.
A Glimpse into the Future
People have always, from the beginning of time, wondered what the future holds. It really is quite easy…just look to the children in our midst. Most of us, if asked, would say how much they love, or at least, like kids, especially when they behave and act like we used to (but that’s a whole other debate). We also think how virtuous is the obedient child, admire the talented and the clever (and the parents who raised them), and disapprove of the badly behaved (often making sure they know it). But before we categorize them into best, better, not so great, and even hopeless, let’s look at them closely. They are us, separated only by years and ALL these kids are going to replace us. Some of the bright and talented will continue so, or, as years have shown, not quite live up to expectations. A majority will become ordinary, good people and citizens. Some that have never shown any promise will rise to the top and surprise everybody. They are our future and the next society. Our job and duty, as the Bible so often reminds us, is to show by example how to live as God wants us to and to never, ever take even one for granted, to encourage them, and to never, never give up.
