Welcome to Sligo today! In our society bread is a staple that you will find in most American homes. In many households it is used for everything from making sandwhiches of every kind to simply serving it up as toast. Bread is so popular that when inclement weather is predicted for our area, it is usually one of the first items that leaves the store shelves. For whatever the reason, it appears that bread is one food that we simply can’t live without. As our community pauses today to celebrate the Holy Communion, I will be talking about another type of bread that may not be as popular with some as the one used to make sandwhiches, but it is even more vital to our lives, as well as the life of our community, as disciples of Jesus Christ; as I share the message titled, Day Old Bread.

Summary of our Beliefs The Bible is the inspired word of God and our only rule of faith and practice. (2 Timothy 3:16, 17). Jesus Christ is the Divine Son of God and our personal Savior from sin by grace through faith. (John 1:1-3; Ephesians 2:8). Having been saved, followers of Jesus live in obedience to Him by observing the Ten Commandments. (Exodus 20: 1-17; John 14:15). The Sabbath – the seventh day of the week- established by God at creation and honored by Jesus in His earthly ministry, is to be observed by the followers of Jesus. (Exodus 20:8-11; 1 Peter 2:21). Jesus is coming back to earth personally and visibly to raise the righteous dead and give His faithful children of all ages immortality in an earth made new. (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17; Revelation 22:12; 21:1-3).

sabbath devotional “When the mind of man is brought into communion with the mind of God, the finite with the Infinite, the effect on body and mind and soul is beyond estimate. In such communion is found the highest education. It is God’s own method of development. ‘Acquaint now thyself with Him.’ ” (Job 22:21) Acts of the Apostles, p 126
