Parental Perspective

John Newton once wrote a letter to the mother of young Eliza Cunningham who was ill with consumption. The mother, Elizabeth Cunningham, was dying of this very condition, and Newton and his wife Polly had agreed to take Eliza in when Elizabeth's health demanded it. In his letter to Elizabeth, John wrote to comfort her concerning the fact her daughter was also sick from consumption. Elizabeth no doubt feared the worst for her little one.

So John wrote, "My chief desire for her is that the Lord may speak to her heart, draw her to himself, and seal her for his own. And then whether she goes to heaven at the age of twelve or a hundred and twenty is no great matter." (From "John Newton: From Disgrace to Grace", by Jonathan Aitken)

Such ought to be the chief desire and abiding perspective of every parent for their every child.

An Opportunity!

This Saturday at 9:00 AM we need a crew to help with spring cleaning. Can you spare an hour to help make the Lord's house beautiful for Easter Sunday? Deacons - we need you to show up. Deaconesses - we need you to show up. Those with the spiritual gift of helps - we need you to show up. And anybody who just loves the Lord, wants to see the house beautiful, and has some time on Saturday morning - we need you to show up.

In addition to cleaning, we'll need a few to help with the Easter decorations, as well.

Will you give an hour this Saturday?
