The Jewell County Fair is this week; Threshing Bee is this weekend; and the benefit supper for Scott Marihugh is Saturday. The worship began with an organ pre- lude played by Pat Grout. The altar candles were lit by Karleigh Davis. Rod Rose, lay speaker, talked to the children about pride and how his pride almost kept Naaman from receiving God's blessing of healing. Before reading the morning scrip- ture, 2 Kings 5:1-14, Rod talked about I Kings 18 and 19. In the earlier scrip- ture, the prophet Elijah prepares the contest between the false god, Baal, andthetrue God. God wins. ButElijah's faith is tested and he fears for his life. In the second scripture reading, God uses a young slave girl to prepare for the meeting of an important foreign official, Naaman, and God's prophet, Elisha. This girl had been taught about God. (You never know how a child, taught about God, will do His will and change the world.) Naaman's pride was hurt because his status was not acknowledged by Elisha and the in- structions he received were too easy. Sometimes we feel that accepting Jesus as our savior is too easy. Who knows what God has planned, but our pride gets in the way? Gods' word is avail- able to all. God's grace is here to pick us up when we fail.
