If you've had the chance to read the newsletter, you've read about my sermon series. If not, I should explain a bit. Ever since we hosted Patty Wetterling last fall, I've kept in the back of my mind the idea to do a sermon series on “Jacob's 11”. “Jacob's 11” is a simple list of traits or actions that we can follow to make this world a better place in which to live. In Patty's talk, I was particularly impressed with her determination to remain positive in light of the evil her family has faced. This list carries on that determination as it is a positive list of proactive attitudes. The list does not deal with child abductions or violence or abuse. It is simply a list of good ways to live our lives; and for us as Christians to show the light of Christ to the world around us.
