PASTOR'S MESSAGE AND HERITAGE HAPPENINGS FOR JUNE 24
This week we’re talking about bullying which isn’t limited to children and youth, bullying happens to adults, too. It’s been going on since Bible times: Joseph was bullied by his brothers because they didn’t like his dream-stories so they decided to do away with him; Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were bullied by King Nebuchadnezzar because they refused to worship idols; and then there’s the story of David who brought down the bully Goliath with one smooth stone.
What makes a bully a bully? And what might we do as followers of Jesus Christ when confronted with or witnessing a bullying situation? There will be an information insert in the bulletin as well as booklets for every family to begin conversations at home. This Sunday we look at the story of David and Goliath and discover what God’s word teaches us about flinging stones at bullies.
