Standing under the weir: Penrith memories

Most of the teachers at Penrith High School, although of uneven teaching quality, were a decent and dedicated bunch of people. Some were memorable, others not so much. I found a photograph of the teachers at Penrith High School when I was looking through some old documents. Why I had a photo of the teachers […]

Julesburg United Methodist Church   Trinity Sunday/ First Sunday After Pentecost.  Happy Father’s Day to all our members and friends!  Bill Studham brought the morning message.  Diane Bell was organist, Fred Brown was projectionist, Katelyn and Levi Reichman served as acolytes.  Receiving the morning tithes and offerings were Kelly Reichman and Vic Johnson.   Special music was shared by Lance Burnett.  Sherri Hinde was liturgist and shared from the books of Psalms 8, Proverbs 8, Romans 5 and John 16.  Holy God, You have poured out so much for us- the beauty of the world, the care of family and friends, meaningful labor, and the gift of Your church.  We give You thanks for these and many other gifts.  Most especially, we thank You for pouring Your love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit.  May Your love continue to spill over in glad abundance that brings relief, renewal, and hope to those in need. Amen. Church Calendar: Sunday Morning Worship Service, 9:00 am- Pastor Steve Gragg will bring the message. Community Vacation Bible School is scheduled for the week of July 22.  The Julesburg Christian Church will be organizing.  If you would like to help, please contact Pastor Alan Harris or Jan Benson. Church Retreat- August 23 and 24. Julesburg Christian Church   Worship service at Julesburg Christian Church was at 10:30 am on June 16, 2019 with the call to worship by Steve Henni.  Alan Harris, Steve Henni, Diane Henni and Dakotah Tucker were the worship team.  Jan Benson played the piano and Caleb Benson and Chase Graham served on the sound board. Pastor Alan Harris preached from John 5.  For many years Bill Wilson has served the children of New York City by driving the bus to pick up the children for his church.  He has been serving the Lord for many decades and loves New York City, even though he has been shot and seen many murders.  When asked about his service to the Lord, he is very humble about it. Jesus says that the scriptures testify of Me.  We are instructed to search the scriptures.  We wrongly think that our eternal life is in the scriptures.  Our eternal life is in accepting Jesus Christ as our savior.  The scriptures are about Jesus. Not so long ago alcohol was a bad thing to have around family events.  Now people argue about drinking whether it is good or not.  The scriptures are pretty clear about staying away from it.  Most public events now serve alcohol. When we accept Jesus we are changed.  We need to read the word of God to know the promises and words of God.  If our bible shows wear, it means we are benefiting from the use. The world says there are many ways to God the Father.  The bible says you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.  The truth is that there is only way to God the Father and that is Jesus Christ.  Are you ready for the truth? Ovid United Methodist News   Pastor Kristie’s Father’s Day message June 16 was “Family Matters.”  Scriptures were 2 Samuel 3:2-5; 15:30; Luke 7:18-20. David had eight wives whom he saw as trophies and children with them all.  He had concubines as well and children by most of them.  A great king, he cared more for his army and the people he ruled over than for his children and family.  In 2 Samuel 15:30, shoulders slumped with his head hanging down, he shuffles along the path from Jerusalem to the Mount of Olives.  Absalom, his son and now king, has had it with his father and banished him to the desert.  David had spent his fatherhood too busy, too important, and too guilty to be any kind of example for his children. Being a solid family matters.  Parents who care and show their love for their children are priceless.  Children spell love T-I-M-E.  The sanctity of marriage is a real and valuable thing.  When a couple is married, they are to honor and value each other.  David missed this – his greatest failure. Being a great dad isn’t easy.  But being a father is more important in the formative years of a child than being a friend.  Laying out boundaries and setting rules is what parents do and they are not to go soft when those “puppy-dog” eyes look up and the voice behind those cute little eyes is more demanding than sweet.  Consistency is more important than the consequence itself. When there’s a conundrum in your midst as to how to handle a situation, whether with your children or with your friends, tell the Father your concerns and be willing to listen to His response. We will have a brunch following church service June 23 as we say goodbye to Pastor Kristie and Steve and wish them the best. St. Paul’s Lutheran   Pastor Christensen’s message on The Holy Trinity Sunday was taken from John 8:48-59. The Lord alone possesses all eternal wisdom even before the acts of creation.  The words of Proverbs confirm Jesus’ active presence before the incarnation.  Then Peter exclaims that this very same Jesus-crucified and killed- could never be bound by death.  Everything about Christ is forever; His Word, His Truth, His Salvation, His immutable relationship with God the Father. As believers, we hold steadfast to everything about Christ, knowing that He alone knows the Father, keeps His Word, and conquers death. Calendar June 20 – 6:30  Miriam Circle meeting at D & J June 23 – 8:00 Bible Study, 9:00 Worship Service The Joy Mission   The Joy Mission, Third & Maple Streets, Julesburg, CO offers a Prayer for the Week: Heavenly Father of fathers, we thank You, today, for our Dads!  Only You could create such a mentor and friend who receives from our hands, ties that light up, soap on a rope or a new screw driver with such joy and dignity.  And so we are blessed for generations to come by pictures of these festive moments! We are grateful also, Father, for our Dads who guide us through the hazy mazes of childhood and puberty into adulthood, enabling us to become a father, ourselves.  We are blessed by the godly example You set before us in our fathers, Dads, uncles, and big brothers. We know that their wisdom, experience and tutelage has crafted our person, and personality, into who we are, today. We are grateful for the fathers You have put in our churches as pastors, our schools as teachers and principals, our government as Founding Fathers, ‘County and City Dads’, and State Officials.  We lift them up to You for seeing eyes, hearing ears, understanding hearts and wise decisions.  Crowd them close to You, Father, help them to lean on Your knowledge, wisdom, discernment and justice as they govern we, the people. Bless and preserve our Dads in business, teaching us honest trading, in law enforcement, EMT or firefighting, keeping order and safety.   Shine your light of truth on Dads in entertainment and journalism.  Many thanks, Father, for our farming Dads who provide food for the world.  Prosper them, keep them in health. Give them new, fresh, innovative ideas and plans for our future and the future of this nation. We pray in Jesus’ Name, AMEN.

Julesburg Mennonite Church   On 6/16/19 Pastor Larry spoke on The Gifts of the Spirit and The Fruits of the Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:1-11  Every person who accepts Jesus Christ as their Savior is given at least one Spiritual Gift. There are a number of Spiritual Gifts given by God. But they are given for a specific purpose and that is for the edification of the Church body, local and world wide.  Most spiritual gifts such as the ability to have a deeper urgency to give, or an greater than average ability to teach God’s word, or an intense urge to tell others about Jesus, are able to be used in numerous ways, but they are to make sure the church body is given all they need to serve the church the believer attends and to help that church to be fruitful and to minister to the community around them. Sometimes spiritual gifts change due to a need in the body, but many stay the same. Some spiritual gifts are obvious, others, such as service may be done when no one is around, such as bookkeeping, or cleaning, or witnessing to the homeless, or comforting discouraged shut-ins. No one has no gift. If you are a Christian and don’t know yours, maybe you need to ask your close friends in Christ.  They may know better than you! “The fruits of the Holy Spirit” are something different.  Those are the quality of general Godly living that all Christians should exhibit and if we are not, we need to ask God to show us areas we are harboring anger or selfishness, or have some deep hurt we have not allowed God to help us to heal. The Fruits of the Spirit are found in Galatians 5:22 and 23: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control. Though we are not perfect and none of us have all of these qualities one hundred percent of the the time, as Christians, we should have them more often than not. Again, ask a Christian loved one to be honest and tell you if they see those traits in you. God wants to help you to work though any things that you struggle with.  He is faithful.

This morning we slept in a bit, trying to recover from the last five days. We hiked a bit over 115 kilometers, or just under 78 miles in five days. It gives me new respect for Stonewall Jackson’s troops in the Civil War who marched 50 miles in two days. Dianna is recovering a bit, […]

Julesburg United Methodist Church Pastor Bun Koo Lee’s message was entitled, “Union With God,” and was taken from the books of Psalm 104, Acts 2, Romans 8 and the Gospel of John 14.  Today is the celebration of Pentecost.  What is the whole point of the Holy Spirit and Pentecost?  The meaning is this; God is with us, the Holy Spirit is the presence of God among us.  The Spirit is relationship, power and life through Christ Jesus.  In the Holy Spirit, we can do everything in the name of God.  So Jesus says in John 6:63, “The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing.  The words I have spoken to you- they are full of the Spirit and life.”  Today let us be assured that we have the Holy Spirit and let us not grieve the Holy Spirit.  We are disciples and witnesses of a life in Christ Jesus.  Let us always live that life and show how God works through us and does His marvelous deeds through each and every one of us.  Let us glorify God! Amen. Assisting with the morning worship service were: Larry Lowery, prelude; Hee Lin Lee, acolyte; Diane Bell, organist; and Carolyn Brown, liturgist.  Receiving the morning tithes and offerings were Ken Hodges and Howie Stever.  Jeana Johnson was projectionist.  Special music was shared by Eun Seon Grace Kim, Diane Bell and Larry Lowery. Church Calendar Sunday morning worship service, 9:00 am. Bill Studham from Big Springs UMC will preach Sunday, June 16. Pastor Steve Gragg will preach Sunday, June 23.

Julesburg Christian Church   Worship service at Julesburg Christian Church was at 10:30 am on June 9, 2019 with the call to worship by Jim Carlson.  Mike Benson, Steve Henni, Diane Henni and Dakotah Tucker were the worship team.  Pat Carlson played the piano, Scott Heath played the bass guitar, Alan Harris played the trombone and Caleb Benson and Chase Graham served on the sound board. Revival started this morning at Julesburg Christian Church.  Pastor Tom Weaver and his wife Beth are visiting Julesburg to lead the revival through Wednesday. Pastor Alan Harris introduced Pastor Tom Weaver who preached from Joshua 17:14.  The children of the tribe of Joseph were not happy with their allotment of the promised land.  They complained that their allotment was too small.  We are many and we deserve more.  We are special. We must be empty before we can be filled.  They were an unhappy people.  It is possible our salvation has become old to us.  Complaining causes our unhappiness.  Living in a right way with God is our goal.  We can’t take anything with us.  If we have food and clothing we have enough. Joshua said to them, if you are a numerous people, clear the land of trees.  You need to work for it.  Reaching your spiritual potential you have to work for it.  What are you doing to develop your lot.  Maybe the tree you  need  to take down is pride.  Maybe it is time to start cutting down other trees.  They were concerned about chariots of iron.  First cut the trees and then you would be in a stronger position.  Our battle is not with people but with the spirit world. Pray for all Christians.  We have God and we have overcome, for greater is He that is in you then he that is in the world.  It is time to cut sin out of our of lives.  Clear it to the farthest border.  Is it also time to get right with Jesus? St. Paul’s Lutheran Church   Pastor Christensen’ s message on The Day of Pentecost was taken from John 14:23-31. The Scriptures this day witness the remarkable releasing of the Holy Spirit.  The mighty works of God are declared in countless languages. Fire blazes mysteriously above the disciples’ heads.  Outrageous confusion, mayhem, and chaos pave the way for global mission, ministry, and confession.  The Holy Spirit teaches all things, equipping preachers to preach and people to listen. He is the Divine Helper, instilling within the Church an relenting confession of Jesus and His deeds of mercy and redemption. Calendar June 13, -7:00 Encounters with Heaven June 16 – 8:00 Bible Study, 9:00 Worship / Communion June 20- 7:00 Miriam Circle Ovid United Methodist Church   We welcomed Harry Harms as our guest Sunday, June 9th.  The focus of his message was “What’s Your Focus?”  The New Testament reading was Matthew 14:22-33. Harry discussed six reasons we should trust God – six reasons that should sharpen our focus. Reason 1:  He knows our name.  (Isaiah 43:1-2) Reason 2:  He will fight for us.  Stay calm; He rescues us.  (Exodus 14:13-14) Reason 3:  He thinks about us.  He has precious thoughts.  (Psalm 139:16-18) Reason 4:  He has plans for us.  (Jeremiah 29:11) Reason 5:  He is our refuge.  Trust Him.  (Psalm 62:6-8; Psalm 16:1-2) Reason 6:  He’s always with us.  Be willing to step out of the boat.  He is always there to protect us.  (Matthew 28:20) Morning hymns supporting and reinforcing the message were:  “Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus”, “I Know Whom I Have Believed”, “Only Trust Him”, “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms”, “God Will Take Care of You”, and “God Be With You.” Others helping with the service were:  Sharla Kinnison, liturgist;  Susan Kinnison, pianist/organist; Frances Grasz, greeter; Pete Gusman and Chuck Powell, offertory receivers. Baby Bottles of change for Caring Pregnancy Center will be collected on Father’s Day. Vacation Bible School is set for July 10-12.  Please plan to support the efforts with cookie and kitchen support. We will have a brunch following church service June 23 as we say goodbye to Pastor Kristie and Steve and  wish them the best.
