The Ladies of the Henning Church of God held their regular monthly meeting Tuesday, June 8, in the church fellowship hall. President Carole Spencer presided and Marty Burns led in prayer.
Dyan Hefner brought us our devotion, “What’s Good,” with scripture reference Philippians 4:8. Many things are worthy of grace, however, we do not have to look far to find things to complain about. Adam and Eve focused their attention on one tree they could not eat from. The Israelites were saved by the parting of the Red Sea and then complained about the food later. Paul writes to think on things that are good and praiseworthy. For instance, a general that was a prisoner of war for seven years focused on one blade of grass in a vent every morning. When things are bad focus on God’s peace during the storm. Choose faith over fear, hope over despair, and solutions over problems. Focus on God and he will give us peace. He knows what is best and what we need.
Jamie Harvey gave the treasurer’s report and Pauline Perkins read last month’s minutes.
