    Thank you for speaking to us this Sabbath. You brought a new perspective on the story of the Adulteress woman and Jesus. I am sure that all of us are guilty of judging quite harshly. Isn’t it a relief that Jesus sees into our hearts. Perhaps if we could understand how and why people act the way that they do, we would be more loving. As you stated, the only way that people know we are Christians is by how we treat each other, both in the church and in the world. The whole Thanksgiving vacation and last Sabbath were special. I am glad that so many of Verna McCoy’s family could be here for that. Thanks for coming for that and for today. We were blessed!

      Thank you for your comments. When I study to share the word, I try to find a text of scripture that would help correct my faults. I know in the past when I have seen someone living in sin, I have been just a critical of the person as the sin. I have to remember that the sin is the issue, not the person. If only I could let them know that God wants a better life for them, and in Christ like love, share the Gospel, and as the apostle Paul says in Galatians,do it gently. It was so good to be back in Conroe. I will be eternally grateful to you and Ken for the kindness I was shone when you gave me a home, when I first moved to Texas.
