 The following article is based on the Good Samaritan of Luke 10:30-37.

Please read this scripture reference before reading what follows. 


 A certain man moved into our community. He didn't fall among robbers who beat him and left him half dead. He just moved in. By chance a certain neighbor was going down that way, and when he saw him, passed by on the other side, saying to himself, "I'll surely miss the opening prayer and besides, the preacher probably know about him."

 In like manner another neighbor, when he came to the place and saw the man, passed by on the other side, saying, "Some people might go in and invite this man to worship, but I'll just wait until the subject comes up some day and then I'll say, 'Pardon me, I hope you won't get the impression that I am a pushy church member, but if you ever get a chance, you might like to visit the church some Sunday...that is if you feel like it'."

 But a certain member, as he journeyed, came where the man was, and when he saw him, he was moved with compassion and came to him and welcomed him to the community. During the conversation, he invited him to the church services, told him how much he would enjoy the simple worship and preaching of the bible, and particularly emphasized how easy it would be for him to get acquainted if he came to bible study. He left saying, "I'll be by to pick you up Sunday."

 And he did, bringing him to the church building and introducing him to the minister and other friends. Then he took the stranger to the proper class and told the teacher, "Take good care of him, and after I get done teaching my class, I will come by and get him and sit with him during worship. If I can render any other service, I'll be glad to do it."

Which of these thinkest thou proved to be a neighbor unto him that newly moved into the community?









AN ODE TO THE DISLOCATED                              
                       By Dalton Key
I looked around our Bible Class
Last Sunday, and 'tis true:
Familiar faces greeted me,
But I couldn't locate you. 
And Sunday night - it was the same.
It made me feel so blue;
Though heartened by the ones who came,
I couldn't locate you. 
Then Wednesday evening brought us back,
The usual mid-week crew;
I searched, and hoped, and searched some more,
But couldn't locate you.
It seems so often when we meet,
And find our favorite pew,
That something's missing, something's wrong.
We just can't locate you. 
You're missed, you know; we want you back.
You need to be here, too.
We'd hate to search through heaven,
Unable to locate you.
