September Pastor’s Notes

    Summer is winding down, the kids are back in school, the days are getting shorter, and the choir is back.  It’s also time for a new Wednesday Evening Small Group Study.  We are going to kick off with the study of a really thought provoking book, entitled “Right Thinking in a World Gone Wrong,” by John MacArthur.

     The book begins with a bold observation:  “It is common in the evangelical church today for people to verbally acknowledge that the Bible, as God’s Word, is the final authority for both what they believe and how they live.  Yet in reality, a clear connection between that public confession and personal conduct is rare.”  It then goes on to prove that the Bible, a book finished nearly 2000 years ago, is the single greatest source of truth in the world, and that it still speaks truth into the situations and problems we face in our modern world today. 

     The book is broken into four major sections:  Entertainment & Leisure, Morality & Ethics, Politics & Activism, and Tragedy & Suffering.  Within each section is a series of essays/chapters (20 in all) that deal with a wide variety of relevant topics including: “Christian Liberty and the World of Entertainment,” “Issues Related to Divorce and Remarriage,” “Euthanasia, Suicide, and Capital Punishment,” “Racism and Reconciliation in Church and Culture, “Illegal Immigration and Border Control,” and “Responding Rightly to Personal Hardship and Trials”.  I believe that you will find this book to be an invaluable resource for the issues we face today.

     So, please join our new study, beginning Wednesday night, September 14th at 6:15pm.  The books have been graciously provided by the providence of God and the faithfulness of His children at Grace Baptist, so all you need to bring is a Bible and lots of questions.  Also, this study is open to everyone, so please invite your friends and neighbors.
