The Pastor’s Corner by Ted Burke Every September, at Chapel Hill, we remind ourselves of the importance of our guests during our Sunday morning worship services. I usually have messages on evangelism, hospitality and a welcoming spirit during this time. Our worship team asks you to wear name tags during the month so we can make it easier to learn names. This September is no exception. Our goal at Chapel Hill over the next 9 months is to increase our Sunday morning attendance from 400 to 500. I have a lot of reasons why this is important and I will share them with you on Sunday, September 8 during the Sunday morning message. To help us all prepare to welcome our guests at Chapel Hill I share a story with you that John Evans sent me by email. Pray God will use you to make a difference in someone's life on Sunday mornings at Chapel Hill. I showered, shaved, put on my suit, adjusted my tie and headed out the door. I got there and sat in a pew just in time for service was about to begin. I bowed my head in humble prayer, but as I closed my eyes I noticed that the shoe of the man next to me was touching my own and I sighed. With plenty of room on either side, I thought, "why do our soles have to touch?" It bothered me, his shoes touching mine, but it didn't seem to bother him much. Then the prayer began: "Our Father," someone said, but I thought,

"does this man with the shoes have no pride?" They were dusty, worn and scratched end to end. What's worse, there were holes on the side! "Thank You for blessings," the prayer went on. The shoe man said a quiet "Amen". I tried to focus on the prayer, but my thoughts were on his shoes again. Aren’t we supposed to look our best when walking through this door? "Well apparently not," I thought glancing toward the floor. Then the prayer ended and songs of praise began. The shoe man was loud, sounding proud as he sang. With his hands raised high he lifted the rafters. The Lord surely heard his voice from the sky. It was time for the offering and what I threw in was quite adequate. I watched as the shoe man reached into his pockets so deep. I saw what was pulled out what the shoe man put in. Then I heard a soft "clink," as when silver hits tin. The sermon really bored me to tears and that is no lie. It was the same for the shoe man for tears fell from his eyes. At the end of the service as is custom here, we must greet the visitors and show them good cheer. But I felt moved somehow and wanted to meet the shoe man. So, after the closing prayer, I reached over and shook his hand. He was old, his skin was dark and his hair a mess. I thanked him for coming and for being our guest. He said, "my name's Charlie and I am glad

to meet you." There were tears in his eyes, but he had a wide grin. “Let me explain,” he said, wiping tears from his eyes. "I've been coming here for months and you're the first one to say Hi”. “I know that my appearance is not like the rest. But I really do try to always look my best.” I always clean and polish my shoes before my very long walk but by the time I get here they're dirty and dusty, like chalk." My heart filled with pain and I swallowed to hide my tears. As he continued to apologize for daring to sit so near, he said, “when I get here I know I must look a sight but I thought if I could touch you then maybe our souls might unite.” I was silent for a moment knowing whatever was said would pale in comparison I spoke from heart, not my head. "Oh, you've touched me," I said "and taught me in part, that the best of any man is what's found in his heart." The rest, I thought, the shoe man will never know. Like just how thankful I really am. That his dirty old shoe touched my soul. Grace and Peace,

Ted Burke, Senior Pastor

Probe it! Study Method “But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.” (James 1:22 NLT) As I’ve taught over the last few weeks, Christian meditation means thinking about Scripture. You meditate on Scripture in the same way a cow chews her cud: by chewing on it and chewing on it and chewing on it. The “probe-it” method of Bible study is a great way to do that. When you use that method, you probe the text with questions, almost like a jackhammer. To help you do that, I’ll share with you one of the strangest acrostics I’ve ever used: SPACEPETS. Each letter in the phrase is the first letter of a key word of a question you ask of God’s Word. 1. Is there a SIN to confess? Does God’s Word make me aware of something I need to make right with God? 2. Is there a PROMISE to claim? There are more than 7,000 promises in God’s Word. Ask yourself if the passage you’ve read contains a universal promise. Ask whether

Rick Warren

you’ve met all the conditions of the promise. Every promise has a premise! Is there an ATTITUDE to change? Is there something about which I need to think differently? Do I need to work on a negative attitude, worry, guilt, fear, loneliness, bitterness, pride, apathy, or ego? Is there a COMMAND to obey? Is there a command I need to obey no matter how I feel? Is there an EXAMPLE to follow? Are there positive examples to follow or negative examples to avoid? Is there a PRAYER to pray? Paul, David, Solomon, Elijah, and Isaiah, among others, pray in the Bible. You can use their prayers and know that they’ll be answered because they’re in the Bible and in God’s will. Is there an ERROR to avoid? It’s wise to learn from experience, and it’s even wiser to learn from the experience of others! We don’t have time to make all the mistakes ourselves. So what can I learn from the mistakes of those in Scripture?

8. Is there a TRUTH to believe? Often, we’ll read something in Scripture that we can’t do anything about. We simply have to believe what it says about God the Father, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the past, the future, Heaven, Hell, or other topics in the Bible. 9. Is there SOMETHING for which to praise God? You can always find something in a passage you can be grateful to God for, like something God has done or protected you from. Every question in this list has a verb in it. There is something you can do associated with them. Write them in your Bible or put them on a note card you keep with your Bible. They’ll help you be “doers of the Word” every time you meditate on the Bible. Talk About It After reading about the probe-it method, go back to the Scripture you read yesterday for your quiet time and apply this method to that passage. What new truths do you discover? What promise from God are you leaning on today?

News from Chapel Hill Troop 280 The Troop held a Court of Honor last month at which the boys received the merit badges they earned at summer camp. Additionally, the following youth were recognized for their advancement in rank: Bryce Bennett earned his Tenderfoot rank; Mikey Gower, quartermaster, earned his Star scout rank; Aaron Caton, Senior Patrol Leader, earned his Star scout rank; Rion Krampe, Assistant Senior Patrol Leader, earned his Life Scout rank; and Isaac Gary, Troop Instructor, earned his Life Scout rank. Currently, the troop is finishing up its work on Personal Management merit badge, which includes a threeSeptember 2013 Issue

month long tracking of the money a Scout earns and saves and his spending habits. The boys will continue to work on Citizenship in the World and Backpacking merit badges through September. Next month, the troop will start Communications and Citizenship in the Nation merit badges for those who have not yet earned the two badges. Next month the troop will go spelunking and investigating Kentucky cave systems. In October, the boys will go backpacking in the Hoosier National Forest. Scoutmaster’s Minute: Most everyone who knows of the

BSA knows the Scout motto: Be prepared. But fewer know that we also have a Scout Slogan: “Do a good turn daily.” While the language of the slogan doesn’t quite fit the language of today’s youth, the idea remains as strong as ever in Scouting. To “do a good turn” is to commit a special act of kindness for no other reason than it’s the right thing to do. We all feel good when we help someone, and we all feel good when we are helped. As we tell the boys, if you want to know how wonderful a good turn truly feels, then don’t tell anyone after you’ve done it. Yours In Scouting, Bill Gary, Scoutmaster

Students Taking Action S.T.A.T.I.C. is Chapel Hill’s Youth Program that includes grades 6th - 12th. “The Experiment” is the perfect place to come and meet new friends and to reconnect with friends you haven’t seen in a while. “The

Experiment” is structured in a big group, small group format. All middle school and high school grades gather together for a message delivered in a variety of formats. Then we take the info given to us in the message to our small groups.

Reasoning With God “‘Come now, let us reason together,’ says the Lord.” —Isaiah 1:18 When tragedy blindsides you and almost knocks you silly, you are understandably bewildered. You feel confusion and panic. You may feel afraid that more hardship will come on top of it all. You may feel like cursing. Or praying. You may feel a thousand things. But at some point, somewhere along the line, if you don’t stop feeling and start thinking about how to attend to the circumstances you find yourself in, you’ll freeze. Yes, intense suffering calls for deep emotions. In the aftermath of a terrible tragedy, people weep. We should weep. God weeps. But there is also a time to think. Neither can replace the other. When you are able to raise your head above the heartache in which you are swimming, the Bible tells you to take the next step. It is full of commands to “think,” “ponder,” “consider,” “weigh,” and “judge.” Jesus often turned questions about the meaning of life, death, and suffering

back onto the questioner. “What is written in the Law?” he would ask. People would blink, sniff back their feelings, flip the pages in their mind, think out loud, and come up with the relevant passages. But this didn’t end the discussion. Next was the real work: “How do you read it?” Jesus would ask. That is, what do you think these scriptures mean? Jesus never allowed room for sloppy or sentimental thinking about the tough issues of life. What you think about God influences your friendship with him. It affects how much glory you give him. But your imagination about God (especially in the midst of tragedy) isn’t reliable. If we simply trust our emotions about him, we recreate him in our own image. We then become like the people Paul described: “They are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge” (Romans 10:2). Do you have a question about God? A question about your circumstances? Make the Bible your only safe source of knowledge about him. Make it a commitment for the

Jesus ascended into heaven, He promised to send the Holy Spirit--the Helper--so that we could be true and living witnesses for Christ. Unfortunately, today's church has admired the gift but neglected to open it. Paul and Brenda Herron invite you on this journey as we seek to reverse our tragic neglect of the Holy Spirit in a seven week, DVD driven study of “The Forgotten God” beginning Wednesday, October 9th , 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. at Chapel Hill.
