The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures. He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul.

Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies. Thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over.

As we gather for worship, the Kettering Strings play George Telemann’s is a setting of Hymn No. 104 by Claude T. Smith (1932-1987), who was a very active church musician and music educator in Kansas City and Nebraska. Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741) was known as the “red-haired priest” and wrote music that was copied and played throughout the western world at that time. The Kettering Strings are under the direction of Maretta Alden, who has taught violin here for the past 23 years. (Hymn 421) was originally 11 stanzas and titled, , referring to the heroes of faith mentioned by the apostle Paul in Hebrews 11, together with all their spiritual descendants translates, who have proclaimed, witnessed, and died in the Christian faith. The tune, “Without a Name” was composed in 1906 by the great English composer, Ralph Vaughan Williams, and is considered one of the greatest hymns of the twentieth century. is a setting of Psalm 23 by Thomas Matthews, who was organist and choir director of Trinity Episcopal Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The choir is accompanied by Grant Wareham, organist. (Hymn 613) was written by John Samuel Bewlye Monsell in 1863 and dedicated to the memory of two of his children. The alternate tune used today, was composed by John Hatton. This hymn is in almost every Christian hymnal and is Hatton’s only known composition. originated as a soprano solo that J. S. Bach wrote for his wife, who was a fine singer. Today we hear a transcription for two pianos by Martha Jean Hoehn and Jerry Taylor.

Sermon — Pastor Karl Haffner “The Dumb Dogs and Hogs”

Benediction — Pastor Karl Haffner


Serv WORSHIP NOTES: Participants: Dr. Karl Haffner, our senior pastor, continues the sermon series, talking about dogs and hogs. Donald Huff is the director of the . Donald was the band director at Spring Valley Academy for 11 years before moving to Loma Linda, CA and spent 2 years as band director at Loma Linda Academy. Since moving back to the area, Donald is school music representative for McCutcheon Music and continuing studies at the University of Dayton. As we gather for worship, the Kettering Praise Orchestra plays Douglas E. Wagner’s, . This reverent medley presents the hymns of the major branches of the United States Armed Forces and includes (in order of appearance) "Eternal Father, Strong to Save/Eternal Father, Lord of Hosts" (Navy/Coast Guard), "Lord, Guard and Guide the Men Who Fly" (Air Force), "From the Halls of Montezuma" (Marines), and "God of Our Fathers" (Army). The title of the work takes a phrase from Thomas Paine's tract, “The American Crisis” (No.4), written September 12, 1777, the day after the bloodiest conflict of the Revolutionary War on the Battlefield at Brandywine. The text begins as follow:

Paine's words have as profound a meaning today as they did in 1777, eerily reminiscent of carnage of another sort some 224 years later on September 11, 2001. Whether that "few acres of ground" be a battlefield or the heart of one of our largest cities, we can be sure that the American spirit will triumph and that the brave men and women of our armed forces will be there to ensure our lasting freedom and democratic way of life for all time. (Hymn 85) was written by William Whiting of Winchester, England, in 1860. It was originally intended as a poem for a student of his, who was preparing to sail to America. In 1861, John B. Dykes, an Anglican clergyman, composed the tune Melita for this hymn. Melita is an archaic term for Malta, an ancient seafaring nation and the site of a shipwreck involving the Apostle Paul mentioned in Acts of the Apostles (chapters 27-28). Today's arrangement is by Jeff Cranfill, minister of music at the First Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia. The arrangement combines with . begins with Greg Martin on bagpipes. Greg is an assistant professor of library science at Cedarville University, organist at Centerville Community Church, a member of the Miami Valley Pipes and Drums, and teaches beginning piping students for the band. Amazing Grace and are from an arrangement by Ohio Composer, James Swearingen, entitled "Within These Hallowed Halls." is an American patriotic song originally written by Irving Berlin in 1918 that he revised in 1938. As sung by Kate Smith (becoming her signature song), it is sometimes considered the unofficial national anthem of the United States. "God Bless America" takes the form of a prayer for God's blessing and peace for the Nation. Today it is sung by Greta Shull, soprano.


“The Dumb Dogs and Hogs” Third message in series: I. The Cycle of Sin (2 Peter 2:22, NIV) Of them the proverbs are true: "A dog returns to its vomit," and, "A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud."

A. The Dog “How apt sinners are to relapse into [sin]. As the dog, after he has gained ease by vomiting that which burdened his stomach, yet goes and licks it up again, so sinners, who have been convinced only and not converted, return to sin again, forgetting how sick it made them.” (from Matthew Henry's Commentary on the Whole Bible: New Modern Edition, Electronic Database. Copyright (c) 1991 by Hendrickson Publishers, Inc.) (cf. Deut 23:18; 1 Sam 17:43; 2 Sam 3:8; 9:8; 16:9; Matt 7:6; Phil 3:2)

B. The Hog

II. How to Stay in the Cycle of Sin

III. How to Escape the Cycle of Sin A. (Deuteronomy 20:1-4, NCV) When you go to war against your enemies, you might see horses and chariots. Their army might be bigger than yours. But don’t be afraid of them. The Lord your God will be with you. He brought you out of Egypt. The priest must come and speak to the army before you go into battle. He should say, “Listen, Israel! Today you are going into battle against your enemies. Don’t lose your courage or be afraid. Don’t panic or be frightened. The Lord your God goes with you. He will fight for you against your enemies. And he will save you.”

B. (Deuternomy 20:1-4, KHV) When you go to war against your enemies, you might see Internet web sites, or a bottle of booze, or an opportunity to spread gossip, or a chance to explode against your children, or a shopping mall where you can spend money you don’t have. When you go into war this week, remember this: Their army might be bigger than yours and you know how many times you have been defeated in this battle. You keep going back, like a clean pig to wallow in mud. But this week, don’t be afraid of this enemy. The Lord your God will be with you. He brought you out of bondage to these evils. The pastor must come and preach to the church before you go into battle. The pastor should say, “Listen, Kettering Church! Today you are going into battle against your enemies. Don’t lose your courage or be afraid. Don’t panic or be frightened. The Lord your God goes with you. He will fight for you against your enemies. And he will save you.”
