Stirring Dec 14 ... 5:30p - 6:30p - Communion
(This is the only Christmas Service that will have Communion)
candlelight services are the same
Candlelight Services Dec 23 ... 6pm and 8pm
Candlelight Services Dec 24 ... 4pm, 6pm and 8pm
will only run trams Dec 24 at 4pm and 6pm .. so Entrance 5 will be open
at all of the other services for those who need to park really close,
even on the sidewalk.
biggest services will be Dec 24 at 4pm and 6pm .. come about
minutes early. If you come before that, I won't have any place for you
to park yet. We have to get the previous service out first
Handicapped parking means you get to park close if you come on time. It
does not mean we are saving you a place so that you can come 20 minutes
late. When they are gone, they are gone!
4pm & 6pm on 12/24 will
be the biggest services.. By far!
Here's what you can do
Don't bring every car you own ... ride together if you can .. Be a
family, pick up friends, stuff like that. If you invited people, go
pick them up..
Its ok to come early, have some coffee .. BUT!!! If you are
coming to one of the 8pm services or the 6pm service on Christmas Eve,
don't come too early because there won't be any place to park (the
service before that one will still be here).. come about 20
early and you'll be great!
No Trams on the 23rd and at the 8pm on the 24th.. If you are
bringing someone who can't walk far, you can pull right up to the door
at entrance 5.. DON'T PARK THERE IF YOU DON'T NEED TOO!! AND DON'T
BLOCK THE DRIVEWAY IF YOU DO PARK THERE!.. Trams will run and
tram lane will be blocked at 4pm & 6pm on the 24th..
If you need handicapped parking, come early. Handicapped parking means
you get to park close WHEN THERE ARE PLACES.. It doesn't mean you get
to come late and expect to find a close place to park. HANDICAPPED
PLACES WILL FILL UP QUICK!!! Come 15 -20 min early.
Blue Zone places (big blue dot) are for people who should have a
handicapped sticker but don't.. Elderly, broken foot, too many kids
under the age of 3, 9 months preg, ....stuff like that.. Don't be shy,
park there if you need to.. DON'T PARK THERE IF YOU DON'T
6. Bring your friends!!!
... I promise you'll love it!! ...
7. Come Have fun.... It’s
going to be Great!!!

give Platelets it's like giving St Jude $700 - $1000.
If we don't give them, they have to buy them.
Platelets is like giving blood, it just takes longer (2
hours) and you get all of your blood back (so you can do it every week
if you want) . I know it's a long trip to go all the way down to St
Jude, but you may be saving a kid's life . plus you get to watch a
movie while you're there. Call Kim at 901.595.2024 and she'll setup an
appointment and treat you like family. Just tell her you're from Hope.
From Poplar, turn north on Third Street, then
right on Lauderdale/Jackson Ave (first right after you go under the
expressway). Enter through the north guard gate (you'll see the Danny
Thomas Pavilion. Gold top).
guard at the gate that you are here to donate blood.
The guard will instruct you where to park. You will then enter the
hospital by the red side door closest to the blood donor parking lot.
The Blood Donor Center is in the southwest corner of the hospital on
the ground floor.
times are generally available Monday through
Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm. Except on Tuesdays they start at 9am.
I was reading about a new company
called 23andMe (web page is www.23andMe.com). A few years ago for $1000
they will send you a saliva kit so you can send them some of your
saliva and then they will extract your DNA from it. (They used to could
tell you all about you Health and Ancesters, but the FDA made them stop
doing health screening, so now it $99 for ancestry only) From that they
can read nearly 600,000 data points on your genome. They say "You can
discover your origins, learn what the latest genetic findings may mean
for you, and connect genetically with friends, family, and others
across the globe." That means you can find out who your ancestors were,
maybe your great, great, great, grandfather was a stray? Maybe that guy
at work with your same last name really is kin to you??? Maybe you have
northern European genes that are prone to some things or African genes
that are prone to others or both… Maybe you have the gene for breast
cancer or Crohn's Disease or MS.. or maybe you don't and you can mostly
quit worrying about it. You can find out all kinds of stuff about
yourself that up until now you had no way of knowing. So when you know,
what do you do? Do you go on a diet because you have a certain marker?
Do you start eating nothing but oatmeal and raw vegetables? Maybe you
start exercising every day to fight the cancer you might get. Maybe you
go over seas to see your homeland. My sister and father did that on a
trip to Ireland several years ago. They both looked the part (Red hair
and Green Eyes, and Black hair and brown eyes) and got treated as
locals until they started to speak.. Maybe you go to the doctor more
often, or start reading more to keep your mind active. Maybe you quit
drinking any alcohol or start drinking red wine.
Maybe you move to a warm climate or a really cold one (northern
European ancestors, you were born to live in the cold). Maybe
you're a born runner or a born swimmer. Maybe your family was royalty
or a group of great warriors?.. What would you do? Would you
Would you do anything special or different? ..
God's like that: He knows everything 23andMe can tell you and a bunch
more. What if you knew what God knows? What if you knew
everything about yourself? What if you could know how your kids would
be when they grow up, or what your marriage would look like a year from
now or when you were going to die. Would you drive slower?
Would you spend more time with your kids? Would you stay late at work
if you knew six months from now that would be the thing that kept your
company going? What would you change?.. The thing people
don't understand is that Gods knows everything about you. He knows
things you won't tell anybody and things you're proud of. Things you do
in secret and things you do in public. He knows everything in your
future and everything in your past. There's nothing to hide. He won't
tell you the future, but he's willing to help you get there..
All you have to do is ask..
I wonder if 23andMe can tell me if I'm prone to get rich or prone to be
7:14 . if my people, who are called by my name,
will pray then I will hear from heaven.
email I got about Meredith (in Red below):
struggling to type as I'm swimming in a pool of tears. Tears of joy,
thanksgiving and ECSTASY. The two small spots that were on Meredith's
lungs have disappeared, and the large tumor that was previously 10 mm
is now 1-2 mm. Meredith's doctors described the results of her scan by
saying the cancer had "melted away." Her doctor is amazed, but I think
he is in the minority in that respect. For most people, stage 4
melanoma is a certain death sentence. Today, our God has
for Meredith." ....... Cool Huh?
So I need
everybody to pray. If you don't pray much, do it one
time. You can just say "God help these people. I pray in Jesus's name".
That will be good enough. Let's see what God will do. Do it right now!
