Fill Beth Matanich’s luggage for Haiti! Beth is taking a short-term mission trip to Haiti, February 9–24, and she can use more of two items to take to distribute to destitute children: children’s underwear and Matchbox cars. We can help by purchasing these items and dropping them in the Haiti box here at church. Beth will be hiking in to work with the children deep in the mountains through the ministry of Hope in Haiti (www.hopeinhaiti.org). Please pray for Beth and the children she will help.
C.S. Lewis quotation: “I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”
