The Path of Compassion: Living with Heart, Soul, and Mind

The Path of Compassion: Living with Heart, Soul, and Mind by [Greer, Ronald J.]
Written by seasoned pastoral counselor, Ron Greer, the study explores the foundational truths of the Scriptures to love God “with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind” and to love “your neighbor as yourself.” Compassion is more than just an emotion or an inspiration or simply an action. Compassion is all three working together in beautiful synergy. It involves a feeling of empathy, an experience of grace, and an impassioned engagement. These are the levels of compassion–heart, soul, and mind.

Patty Hampton, who works for Nancy Lane, is responsible for ordering the badges and will be placing an order soon.

We will pass a sign up sheet this Sunday for those who don’t already have a badge and want one. They sure help when you recognize someone but can’t remember their name. They also help in talking to those you don’t know.


THANK YOU TO CUC!

We appreciate the prayers, cards, food, transportation, help cleaning out our house, unpacking at our new apartment, and helping with the garage sale.

01_GNPI_050_Parable_Weeds_1024

links-icon-9889-20x20Short Stories by Jesus: The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi” by Amy-Jill Levine. Life in first-century Palestine was very different from our world today, and many traditional interpretations of Jesus’ stories ignore this disparity.

In this Bible study, Amy-Jill Levine analyzes these “problems with parables” taking readers back in time to understand how their original Jewish audience understood them. With this revitalized understanding, she interprets these moving stories for the contemporary reader, showing how the parables are not just about Jesus, but are also about us—and when read rightly, still challenge and provoke us two thousand years later.

Job Networking Garage Sale

garage-sale-web-banner-1

Over $45,000 was raised by last week’s Garage Sale Extravaganza for Job Networking! That couldn’t have been done without a huge amount of help. We have estimated that at least 72 CUC members helped in some way during the week.

The garage sale helped so many people besides those who got the great bargains. The Clothing Room alone earned close to $3000 for Job Networking and here’s a list of those we know also benefited from the clothing room :

  • Foster Care,
  • North Fulton Charities,
  • No Longer Bound,
  • Acting Up (RUMC),
  • Red Bird Ministries (Kentucky),
  • Brookhaven UMC Recovery Ministry,
  • Attire for Hire,
  • and, most importantly, Job Networking!

(*Foster Care received merchandise for the Fostering Hope Store,*North Fulton Charities received many truck loads,*RUMC “Acting Up” received 2 full racks of clothing, and lots of accessories for their drama closet; *No Longer Bound Ministry received a BIG truck load of merchandise; * Brookhaven UMC Recovery Ministry received shoes and clothing (20-25 large bags),*Attire for Hire received interview clothing, and we gave a carload of clothing to RED BIRD Missions in Kentucky.)

Next year the date for the sale will be May 1, 2, and 3, so the start date for preparation will be Monday (or Sunday afternoon), April 29. Mark your calendars so you don’t miss this worthwhile, fun event!

Jan Ligon reminds us that the antiques that our kids don’t want would be of great value for the garage sale. Gale Davis reminds us that those good clothes that we hardly ever wear will be great for our boutique. We are not taking men’s clothes or shoes this year. We want women’s clothes on HANGERS please.

Plan to volunteer at almost any time during this coming week for the Garage Sale Extravaganza August 2- 4th. (You do not have to sign up ahead if you realize you have time to help out.) CUC always has a large group of volunteers working that whole week.

Consider donating homemade baked goods and/or purchasing baked goods at the Job Networking fundraising Bake Sale. Drop off baked goods next Thursday, 8/2, 12:00-2:00 at the south side of Chapel Building just before the portico. Please identify baked item and include your name. Someone will be at curbside to receive your baked goods. The Bake Sale is on Friday, August 3, 8:00am-6:00pm Bldg B, Room 123-125.Questions? Contact Claudia Phelps.

Little Things Mean a Lot!

Apples to CUC for MUST lunches!

Box Tops should be clipped when you see them on boxes, cans, bags you have brought home from stores. You can find a current list of products that feature Box Tops for Education by searching for Box Tops for Education on your computers.

Quite a variety of brands helps schools this way. Many schools collect them. All these items contributed from our class are mailed to Red Bird Missionary Conference in Kentucky to help the Christian school there.

Over the years these Box Tops sent from churches and individuals across the USA have made a positive difference in the school’s ability to provide “extras” such as hall lockers, prizes for perfect attendance, fuel for vans, field trips. These benefits are not part of the school’s budget.

Red Bird Missionary Conference has an excellent computer site. Please refer to it for information about this Methodist center in rural Appalachia.

Flip tops from cans – keep collecting them and bring to Sunday School. These go to support Ronald McDonald Houses

  • UPDATE ON PASTOR ANDREW BRUNSON – June 25, 2018 President Trump made his boldest statement last weekend in defense of imprisoned Pastor Brunson assuring him that he is not forgotten, and we are working on his release.

About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them.”

Information on current class committees is available on the class web site (CUCX.WORDPRESS.COM). If you’re interested in serving on any committee or would like to change your current assignment, please let me know asap. My goal is to have everything tied down by mid-July.

Many thanks, Tom Knight

Before this faith came, we were held prisoners by the law, locked up until faith should be revealed. So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith. Now that faith has come, we are no longer under the supervision of the law. You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. For there is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male or female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

A truck load is 1872 kits on 52 pallets. Freddie Cook, Warehouse Manager told him they would probably sent 25,000 cleaning kits to Puerto Rico in the next two weeks. Finally, based on the UMCOR estimate of $65 per kit, there will be $3.250 Million Dollars of Flood Cleaning Kits shipped by the Middle of October. GO METHODISTS  GO !

Operation Christmas Child

occ-boiler-1-jpg-400x240

Dear CUC Members, 

I will have the Operation Christmas Child Samaritans Purse boxes in Sunday school the next few weeks. I am enclosing the link below so you may print out the information for your donation, and instructions for filling and payment for shipping. Let’s try to top our goal of 100 boxes.

Collection date is Nov 13, and I will take them to the distribution center.

I hope you have been collecting items to go in your boxes. A big change this year is due to laws regarding imports, and no toothpaste, liquid or food items may go into the boxes. I know children loved those but they cannot be sent.

Please do put toothbrushes and perhaps dry powder tooth cleansing powder, but the brushes help even if they do not have the toothpaste. Grooming supplies and a toy are loved, a tee shirt, crayons, pencil and paper or coloring books to name a few suggestions.

Do not hesitate to call me if you have questions.

Praise be to God,
Lynne Roberts

  • Lynn Adcock to  regain strength as she awaits further testing.
  • Beth  Hamilton for  relief  of  pain from  fractured  pelvis.
  • Scott Woodison – for continued good recovery following his surgery.
  • Jim Boswell was diagnosed with symptoms of heart failure about two years ago.  He has had it under control with medication and diet until early summer.  The cause is decreasing function of the tricuspid valve.  Within the last year, research and experimentation have been done on trans-catheter repair of the tricuspid valve in the US and in Europe.  The aortic and mitral valves have been repaired with a trans-catheter procedures for some time, but the tricuspid has only been  done with open heart surgery.  Since Jim has had open heart twice plus stents, open heart is not an option. There are few places in the US performing these new procedures, and one of them is Piedmont Hospital. He has had days of testing to prepare for next steps and will enter Piedmont Hospital on Tuesday, October 17.  The procedure will be done on Thursday, October 19.  He will remain in the hospital for a couple of days afterwards.  We will know immediately after surgery if the valve is repaired. Prayers for a successful outcome, as well as health and peace as they wait would be so appreciated. 
  • Sue Gardner requests prayers for her brother, who  is still being treated for graft vs. host disease.  His blood is being treated, but his progress is slow.

  • Bob  Morisey – celebrating  the  birth  of  his  first  great- granddaughter
  • Myra Ettenborough, friend of  Kris  Taylor, was released from a federal prison camp in Florida on Thursday, September 7th. Her family picked her up and they fled Florida in front of Hurricane Irma. Luckily, as evacuees were clogging northbound routes on I-95, they were traveling a more western route from the panhandle to the halfway house which is a much more liberal and welcoming environment than the prison camp.
    We still have no idea how long she will have to spend there but at least it is easier to go visit her and she has her own phone for the first time in 51/2 years. God is good and has blessed many people through Myra’s teaching and ministry. We eagerly await her return to Roswell.
