“By Faith” – Building A Lasting, Spiritual Legacy in Your Family

by Mark Schnell, Elder, Boston Church of Christschnell_generation

 17 By faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had received the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son, 18 even though God had said to him, “It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.” 19 Abraham reasoned that God could raise the dead, and figuratively speaking, he did receive Isaac back from death. 20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau in regard to their future. 21 By faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed each of Joseph’s sons, and worshiped as he leaned on the top of his staff. 22 By faith Joseph, when his end was near, spoke about the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt and gave instructions about his bones. (Hebrews 11:17-22)

Few things are more encouraging than enjoying a get-together of extended family where everyone shares a common love for God and His church. Can you imagine sharing a Thanksgiving feast, and during dessert everyone takes turns proclaiming the good things God has done for them? How about a family camping trip, where every morning and every evening is marked by a time devoted to prayer, singing, and sharing? Too good to be true? Maybe, if you haven’t invested in God’s plan for families. However, if you faithfully put into practice the spiritual principles of the scriptures, this can be a reality for you and your loved ones.

Happy, Healthy, Holy: Women’s Health Symposium

by Jeanie Shaw

Women's Symposium“This is exactly what I needed!” “I’ve already put into practice several important things I learned” are just two responses from women who took part in the Boston Church of Christ’s health symposium entitled, “Happy, Healthy, Holy”.
Hundreds of women gathered on Saturday morning, May 17, at the Burlington Marriott. The program opened with a comedy and song parody taken from show tunes and “oldies” –rewritten to highlight the many special “joys” found in women’s health issues. Ruby Mitchell, Kristen Lamb and Jeanie Shaw dared to tread where “no man would dare to go” as they sang of pap smears, mammograms, “h-o-r-m-o-n-e: and various other topics. The crowd then “danced” to Morgan William’s rendition of Pharrell William’s song, “Happy.” The worship team led us in several powerful and meaningful songs to help prepare our hearts to be fed by our guest speaker, Lynne Green, from Berlin, Germany.
Lynne powerfully taught on the subject of Happy, Healthy and Holy as she guided us, through scripture, toward ways to let go of thoughts that take our minds down harmful paths—and as she vulnerably shared her spiritual journey as she went through a battle with cancer. You can hear her heart-moving message here (Will be posted later).
