Forgive Others

“I can no longer condemn or hate a brother for whom I pray; no matter how much trouble he causes me. His face, that hitherto may have been strange and intolerable to me, is transformed in intercession into the countenance of a brother for whom Christ died.” (D.B., Life Together)


Here are two pictures from the Chattanooga Community kitchen sent to me by Richard Johnson. Our church regularly helps the homeless with food preparation. However, this month we helped the Kitchen with a new steam deck. Richard sent these photos with a brief comment:

So here it is! Mission Accomplished! Thank you, church, so much for all your help and support for this ministry. 


Our Pathfinder Club led during both services last week. Look how great they looked on the platform:


Clifford Goldstien, adult Bible Study Guide editor and host of Hope Channel’s “CIFF!” will be our guest speaker this Sabbath. Clifford, who grew up a secular Jew in Florida, accepted the Adventist message in his early 20’s and has now worked at the General Conference Seventh-day Adventist Church Headquarters for 35 years as an editor of various church magazines. Goldstein has authored hundreds of articles and multiple books on religious liberty, prophetic interpretation, and creation vs. evolution, among other topics.


Unfortunately, I will stay home as I have not fully recovered from the flu which has also caused me to lose my voice. I do not want anyone else to get sick. Thank you for your prayers and text messages. I appreciate each one of them.


Our pre-nominating committee has not yet finished its task. Names, recommended for the Nominating committee will be in the bulletin next week.


This week our children had an early (Stacey will not be here in March) celebration for Galena’s 60th birthday. Galena had a blast with all of her grandchildren at High Point in Chattanooga. See her jump off one of highest points in the kid’s section 🙂

Happy Sabbath, everyone!

pastor Peter
