As we begin a NEW YEAR it is a good to do significant examination of our Spiritual life and our relationship with God. I discovered the following prayer from a book by John Baillie titled” A Diary of Private Prayer”. Upon reading it I realized it provided a well thought our check list for regular examination and new direction for our spiritual lives.

Accompany me today, O Spirit invisible, in all my goings, but stay with me also when I am in my own home and among my kindred. Forbid that I should fail to show to those nearest me the sympathy and consideration which thy grace enables me to show to others with whom I have to do. Forbid that I should refuse to my own household the courtesy and politeness which I think proper to show to strangers.

Leave me not, O gracious Lord, in such hours as I may today devote to the reading of books or of newspapers. Guide my mind to choose the right books and, having chosen them, to read them in the right way.  Let all my reading so refresh my mind that I may more eagerly seek after whatever things are pure and fair and true.

Let me have a special sense of thy nearness to me, O God, in such times as I may be able to devote to prayer and to any public exercise of worship through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen

 †† A few things that we did last month ††   


         

The 9th of December the Silver Linings had their Christmas Party at Mantoloking Ale House they enjoyed their meal and had a great time of fellowship.

Pastor Fred and a few volunteers distributed 300 candy canes in 2 hours on December 16. This may have been an all time record for the fastest distribution.  J

Sunday December 17th had the honor of a Christmas Program, put on by the children and directed by Ree.  The children did an outstanding job, and of course Ree did as well.  Afterwards we had light refreshments down in fellowship hall with a visit from Santa.

We had two services on December 24th, one at our regular morning worship schedule 11:00 am, and then had a candle light Christmas Eve service in the evening.

Come back to Christmas
When January comes along, we can continue that sense of

comfort and warmth that comes at Christmas by returning to

the Christmas story, which gives us two great promises:

God understands you, and God can redeem you. 
I encourage people to make it a point to reread the Christmas story every month,

and allow Christmas to be

Christmas every month. We need to keep coming back to it.
