Hello Newcastle Seniors! It is a privilege to be able to bring my greetings into your homes each week. So many of you I already know, but there are still so many that I don't. In either case, I wish each of you well.
As I mentioned last week, I am doing a series of articles on the Beatitudes. We are also teaching on the Beatitudes on Wednesday nights at First Baptist Church of Newcastle at 6:00 pm. We would love to have you attend.
Well, this week I had planned to review two movies, but sadly I once again found myself up late and out of time, so my review for Netflix’s new historical crime thriller, “The Devil All the Time,” will just have to wait until next week.
Hello Newcastle Seniors! The corona virus is really doing a number on our town as well as across the country. I have heard about several in the Tri-City area who have come down with it. We hope and pray that everyone who has become ill will get okay and get past it. I know that school teachers, medical personnel and first responders, to name just a few, have been in harms way with it since the beginning. Our Senior Center has been blessed with no more than a couple of seniors have been exposed or gotten sick from it. We sanitize all surfaces and knobs, door handles, chairs, even ink pens, everyday. We believe that has been advantageous to the well being of everyone. Bev sanitizes the Delta van every day also.
Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” God is a God of peace and He longs for people to be at peace with Him, themselves, and others. I heard someone say it like this one time, “True peace comes from having a right relationship with God that leads to a right relationship with self, and guides to right relationships with others.” In other words, living a life of peace begins with being at peace with God, and everything else flows from that relationship.
