We will have a Gideon speaker on Sunday, October 18th. If he speaks 10 or 15 minutes I will be prepared to offer a few comments on Colossians 3:1-4. If he speaks 20 minutes or longer I will wait until our next service to preach a full sermon. It’s all God’s time.
The Gideons are not a Southern Baptist thing or sent by any particular denomination. Their organization exists for one unique purpose: to print and distribute Bibles. Every dollar donated to them is used to print Bibles. Each Gideon is a lay Christian businessman or professional from the community that pays his own way. Your donation does not compensate anyone for their time, travel expenses or business overhead. Every $5 they receive produces one hard-cover full copy of the Bible. Full size Bibles go into hotel and hospital rooms. New Testament Bibles with the Psalms and Proverbs are handed out to middle and high school age students, college students, military personnel, health care professionals and others.
Here is a link to the Gideon’s website. Prayerfully consider giving, and join us this Sunday morning to hear about what God is doing. The fields are white unto harvest, and as always the laborers are few.
