Why Casey hasn’t been adopted is a mystery. He looks up at you with those beautiful, soulful eyes, then drops to the ground for a belly rub. Casey is such an attentive dog, so intelligent and intuitive for just a youngster. He follows his caretaker outside, and then goes right back in to his run, past all of the other dog runs. He exhibits the kind of affection you might associate with a dog who would be the first to find a happy home. Yet, he just hasn’t been picked.

Words of

Faith &Hope

“Resolved …” “… I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” Jesus (John l0:10 N.I.V.)

Is there a connection between New Year’s resolutions and the season of Lent? I think there is. A recent study coming from Princeton, N.J. reveals some interesting facts about New Year’s resolutions: • At least half of us make them. • 25% of those resolutions are broken before the end of January. • Only 8% of us succeed in achieving them. Good news: It was found there is no correlation between happiness and achieving New Year’s resolutions. Psychologists who study change in human behavior say “will power” is never enough. Positive change comes from intentionally changing our environment and replacing the negative influences (people and things that support our bad habits) with positive influences. More good news: Followers of Christ believe a vital relationship with God in Christ is the one thing that gives meaning and purpose to our lives. In the K.J.V version of the verse that starts this reading, Jesus says, “... I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” The abundant life (a life of meaning and purpose) comes when we allow Jesus to live His life in us. Following Christ is a daily commitment which brings joy in this life and even greater joy in the life to come. What better way to begin the season of Lent (leading to Easter) than by following the One who said, “I am the way, the truth and the life” (John l4:6). You are invited to experience some of that abundant life this Sunday in a church “where Jesus’ love is lived.”

Wanted: Old Cell Phones My name is Karen McGuire, the daughter of Jimmy & Kumi McGuire and I'm a 7th grader at Woodrow Wilson Middle School. Recently, I was accepted into a program called People to People. This summer, I will be taking a trip to England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales to learn about their cultures and what it takes to become a student ambassador. I need to raise funds for my tuition on this trip. One of the ways is recycling old, used or even broken cell phones. I am working with a company called PhoneRaiser in Texas. I send them the cell phones; they refurbish them and send them to third-world countries or people in the army. I found out through this program that 1 phone can contaminate up to 39,000 gallons of water if disposed of in a normal landfill, and that currently only 4% of the cell phones get recycled.

If you have any old cell phones, or work for a company that might have a pile of them laying around the office, could you PLEASE bring them to:
