From the Desk of Dr. Garth Coonce - January 04, 2013
Happy Birthday, Tina! This coming Sunday, Tina will celebrate her 39th birthday for a record 32nd time. For those who may be mathematically challenged, that makes a very young 71. Sorry, Tina, for telling your age, but I know you are not sensitive about your age, nor do you look or act your age. I'd better change the subject and ask for your forgiveness - and also from all you ladies who are appalled that I would tell a woman's age.
What a way to start the New Year - asking for forgiveness! But isn't that what Christ went to the cross for? Forgiveness of sin for all who ask!
What do you need to seek Christ for today? Whatever it is, Jesus is faithful and just to extend mercy and grace to us and forgive us of our transgressions.
When we put Jesus first, He gives us peace and joy with unlimited blessing and success in everything we do.
Please help us continue broadcasting that good news for another year. You are so very important, and have blessed us with your partnership. As our partner, we ask that you send the best love gift you can to proclaim the gospel to the world in 2013.
I want to thank you in advance for your love, prayers, and support!
May the Lord bless you richly!
P.S. For you, o Lord, will bless the righteous with favor. You will surround him as with a shield. (Psalm 5:12)
