A Note From Dale

Thankful, Thankful, Thankful

Again, Lanelle and I express our appreciation for your warm, cordial Christian reception of us. It is a privilege to serve the Lord by serving His people called Eastern Hills Baptist Church.

Be Faithful

I read in another church‘s bulletin about Lila Craig. She is from Tennessee and has not missed a church service in over 20 years. For 1,040 consecutive Sundays, she has attended her church. A local newspaper editor wrote “It makes you wonder: What’s wrong with Lila? Doesn’t it rain or snow in Lila’s neighborhood on Sunday? Doesn’t she have unexpected company? Doesn’t she ever take a break to attend picnics or family reunions or have headaches, colds, or tired feelings? Doesn’t she oversleep or need time to read her newspaper? Hasn’t she ever become angry at the minister or had hurt feelings and felt justified to stay home? What’s wrong with Lila Craig? As a matter of fact, NOTHING is wrong but a lot is right. We NEED more like Lila, who loyally serve Christ and His Church.”
There are some members at EHBC who give Lila a run for her money. You are faithful week by week. Keep up the good work. You are an inspiration to me and to all.

Appreciation To One Of Yours

Candace McIntosh, a member of EHBC, Sunday School Teacher, Acteens Leader, has just celebrated her fifteenth year as the Executive Director of the Alabama Baptist Women’s Missionary Union. Congrats Candace!
Most people don’t realize the size of the Alabama Baptist State Convention: 3,300 churches, over one million members. If the Alabama Baptist State Convention seceded from the Southern Baptist Convention and became a denomination of its own, it would be the ninth largest denomination in the U.S. One in every five Alabamians is connected with an Alabama Baptist church. Jerry Clower was right, “Baptists and kudzu are taking over the south.”

He Who Laffs Last

A senior citizen said to his eighty-four year old friend:
“I hear you’re getting married”
“Do I know her?”
“This woman, is she really good looking?”
“Not really.”
“Is she a great cook?”
“Naw, she can’t cook real well”
“Does she have lots of money?”
“No. Poor as a church mouse.”
“Well, why in the world do you want to marry her then?”
“Because she can still drive!”

Remember: Be Prayerful. Be Faithful. Be Patient.

Blessings! Dale Huff
