At Big Rock Congrega- tional Church we finished our Rediscovering Our Roots series on the book of Genesis on Sept. 15. The last study emphasized a repetitive theme from our study. That is in spite of our consequences we sometimes bring upon ourselves in life, we have hope because God holds our future ha his hands and he will always remain faithful. This last Sunday we be- gan a new short study on Paul's personal letter to Philemon. We noted from the warmth of his saluta- tion Paul had a special bond with those who re- ceived this letter: We also saw that when we do not actively share our faith we remain immature as well as hinder the growth of Christ's kingdom. So we are to pray for those God brings to mind to boldly share their faith and to un- derstand Christ more fully. Paul's letter to Philemon has made a huge impact in the world. Some may go so far as to say it caused the American Civil War. Next week we will delve into the real reason for this letter and the impact that it has even today in the world. Join us this week in the church basement at 7 p.m. for the men's Bible study and at 8:15 a.m. Wednes- day for Healthy Lifestyles group, and then at 9 a.m. for coffee and breakfast.
