Last month, I received an email from my sister. She shared this about our mom: “Yesterday morning, as the congregation stood to sing the last song, I stood by our mom and had a couple tears slip out. I wish you all could have been beside her as well. We were singing, ‘Oh love of God, how rich and pure, how measureless and strong. It shall forever more endure; the saints and angels song.’
BY DAN CUMINGS Mildred Bible Chapel youth pastor How often have you or I had the chance to walk into a gathering where we were unknown? No faces were familiar and it appeared you didn’t know anyone at the gathering. A favorite way to break the ice would be to greet someone by saying, “I am a good friend of (name of host of the gathering).” Maybe you would say, “I am the brother of the person who this party is for.” Then top it off by bringing people over to your famous brother and introducing them.
