THIS SUNDAY, 3/15
Choir: When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
Preacher: Mike Lewis
Praise Team: 6pm in the Worship Center
Adult Choir: 7:15pm in the CHOIR ROOM behind the Choir Loft; X-TRA Rehearsal: 3/22 – 3:15-4:45pm.
Handbells: Next Rehearsal: 3/29
Praise Team & Adult Choir: NO REHEARSAL Spring Break (3/18) or the week of Encounter (3/25). As such, this week’s rehearsal is critical. Please join me at 7:15pm this Wed., (3/11). We will run through “When I Survey…” one time. Then we will work very hard on both End of the Beginning (scheduled for the MORNING of 3/22) and Midnight Cry (scheduled for the EVENING of 3/22). We have another critical rehearsal on Sunday, 3/22 (see above). Immediately following that rehearsal, we’ll fill the loft and sing Midnight Cry for Sunday evening’s Encounter Worship Service!

NY TIMES – WHY OUR CHILDREN DON’T THINK THERE ARE MORAL FACTS
Even the NY Times “gets it.”
Here’s what our children (youth) are being taught. It’s indoctrination disguised as harmless education. Parents/pastors/youth leaders must step up and have intelligent dialogue with this generation of kids, helping them understand that a world with moral absolutes (for instance, murder is not only illegal, it’s wrong).
C.S. Lewis’ book, The Abolition of Man, is all about moral relativity. Like the antagonists in Lewis’ book, modern educators (the “big cheeses” who choose the curriculum) can’t have it both ways (moral relativism AND moral absolutes).
HOW TO RESPOND TO ‘THAT’S JUST YOUR INTERPRETATION’
This editorial complements nicely the NY Times editorial above.

9 BILLION YEARS LATER – SEE A STAR EXPLODE
I viewed this brief video of the recent scientific finding of a star exploding and then, as they explained “Einstein’s Cross”…… my head exploded as well.
WOW – A YOUNG MAN & HIS GUITAR….
MORE MUSIC: THIS IS “LION KING MEETS HYMNODY”
Coming from one who has a large framed poster of the Blue Man Group in his office, I am thrilled to introduce to you these drummers who sing and play “How Great Thou Art” in a “language” i absolutely love. It is pure percussive bliss. It’s “hymnody meets the Lion King.”

QUOTE(s) of the WEEK
“It is not the reading of many books which is necessary to make a man wise or good, but the well-reading of a few, could he be sure to have the best.” – Puritan preacher, Richard Baxter
“God whispers to us in health and prosperity but, being hard of hearing, we fail to hear God’s voice. Whereupon God turns up the amplifier by means of suffering. Then His voice booms.” – C.S. Lewis
“No human being could ever have possibly imagined that the Author of the Universe would end up writing a story which would include Himself slowly approaching His death at the hands of His own handwriting via the back of a pack animal.” – Daniel Ray; one of my MAA classmates at HBU
“Wrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight,
At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more,
When he bears his teeth, winter meets its death,
And when he shakes his mane, we shall have Spring again.
(Mr. Beaver in Lewis’ “The Chronicles of Narnia”, where Aslan represents Christ.)
