Hi this is not a desperate call for help. I am alone. I lost both my parents in 2018. I need some help with on where I can get an already cooked Turkey for me someone who does not cook too much, that is me. Or, point me in the right direction where I can buy a cooked Turkey or Turkey breast. Thank you and God Bless!!! Martin Sass
My name is Rocky Sackville.

I am a Christian concerned greatly for our country and have written a book entitled: LORD—HOW WOULD YOU VOTE? / What Works for a Country? I found a lot in the old and new testaments making the case that God is a ‘free market God” or at least does not rail against capitalism as the left does.

Did you know that capitalism or free markets actually bring more people out of poverty than any other type of economic system. (And God cares for the poor).

Jesus strongly rebukes the guy in the Parable of the Talents who pretty much quotes Karl Marx "you take up what you did not lay down and reap what you did not sow". Lk 19:11-27. Jesus judges him with the guy's own words and said he should have put the money in the bank to gain interest—(such a greedy Lord)...and he gives the talents to the guy who had 10 already to the dismay of the socialist complainer who wanted it redistributed to someone who had none. To which Jesus says: "to everyone who has, more shall be given, but from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away." Jesus honors hard work and warns against not working! BTW, the nobleman was off amassing wealth (receiving a kingdom for himself) and created a business model by telling his servants to "do business with this until I come back". So in just a few paragraphs we find Jesus in support of wealth, business, banks, interest, hard work, faithfulness, maximizing profits and…opposed to not working and…opposed to redistribution of what is yours because some do-gooder says to do so.

Its’ not just the Parable of the Talents. I was surprised by how many examples I found in the old and new testaments that I believe show the heart of God favoring free markets, opportunity, responsibility, hard work, liberty and also showed Him to be against bo***ge which is what socialistic economies are in spite of the promises to the contrary.
Chapter 6: Explains yeah capitalism, boo Marxism/socialism—did Jesus miss an opportunity?!
Chapter 1: The Year of Jubilee – property rights. (Thou Shalt Not Steal).
Chapter 8: Early Church Giving – redistributive or otherwise?
Have you ever counted how many times the word ‘profit’ is used in the old and new testaments? And by who? (Why would the Lord refer to or incentivize something as useful if it was sinful/bad/detrimental?)

America – the American experiment…our founding—was biblically based. I go into that as well. A section after chapter 11 discusses several other issues including a lot on our founding.

Why am I so concerned?... The American I grew up in is gone. The rule of law, the Constitution are being ignored, worked around. Balance of power and representative government are diminishing. Socialism is openly pushed and Americanism is being dishonored. Religion is quietly targeted for removal from the public discussion. The selling of babies organs is legal?! Did you know Woodrow Wilson favored a ‘modern government’ to which the Constitution should give way. He also stated that not so much should be done by voting but by experts in the administrative state. Scary!!! The left today is on the same course and they have been quietly advancing their agenda for decades.

Christians have been in every war America has fought. Our voice should be heard in this war of ideologies. We should use the truth of the scriptures to both live and vote by. I wrote the book to give Christians especially, but really anyone—a biblical basis for voting for several issues but specifically for a capitalistic or free market economy in-spite of the lefts’ attempt to discredit and vilify what has been one of the great blessings to us from God.

So, if you are interested, the book is available on Amazon and store.bookbaby.com. Paperback is 7-10 dollars and e-book is 2.99.

I hope it helps people as we approach this critical election—probably the most important in our lifetime.
Roses from the FBCA rose garden! How are others' rose bushes faring?
Our bible study in New Jersey is praying for the Graveson family. Thank you for the FB updates. It lets us know how to pray more specifically.
Is there a way to Venmo or Square Cash funds for the Gravesons? Can I just send it to FBCA? (Does FBCA take venmo or square cash?)
So happy to see this on my way home after a beautiful day ...took a quick u-ie and then closer pics. Praying the message of a Living Cross is received by many people who pass by. Sunday IS Coming.... He IS Alive....

Dear Family and Friends,
As we go through the storms of life, we will remember that our souls are anchored in the Lord. May Jesus be our primary focus even when it is difficult to do so. Keep our eyes on the distant shore where God provides peace and joy. Lord, help us to hold out for Your best! May God bless everyone with healing, strength, and courage. Psalm 46, Psalm 91, Isaiah 40, Psalm 27:1 Stay safe and be very careful, Love you all!
I am trying to watch the service,but am having problems.
I enjoy searching online for photos of FBCA, just to see how much that I recollect from my childhood. It was my family's place of worship, from the late Fifties to the mid-Seventies.

I do instantly recognize much of the interior, from photos, such as pillars and stained glass.

President Lyndon Johnson, and his family, made a surprise visit, one Sunday. His family sat near the front, during the sermon. Then afterwords, President Johnson shook hands outside with church members, as everybody was leaving.

There was an assistant pastor, named Mr. Clark, whom I liked, back in the Sixties.

And I heard that a boy in my Sunday School class, from the Sixties, continued to worship there, throughout his adult life and became a prominent senior member. His name is Lee Patterson. Lee must be in his late sixties, now. If anybody knows Lee Patterson, please say hello, just to see whether Lee recalls the name, "George Clark". That is me.
Great 1 bdrm/ 1 bath condo available for rent near the church. Rent includes ALL utilities, use of pool, gym, access to mass transport, and plenty of free parking.

Alarmed!

Pastor Don's journal for this week...
"In the wee hours of Saturday morning, we were startled awake by a blaring fire alarm. The entire hotel emptied into the parking lot. We were on the 8th floor, so it was quite a walk in swift but orderly fashion. A little dazed."

Alarmed! Audrey and I slipped down to Richmond on Friday for a night at the Drury Plaza Hotel. They have an excellent “happy hour” in the early evening that amounts to a full meal, a complete hot breakfast in the morning, and very reasonable rates on top of all that. It’s a new hotel and they are anxio...

"'If I was not part of that flight, and today I was in Afghanistan, I don’t know what would happen to me,' Sayid said. 'I worked with the United States government for several years and I was one of the target groups.' It’s their very first time in the states. So far, they say they feel welcome and excited for a new opportunity at life."
Full story here:

This story comes directly from our partners at Lutheran Social Services and is just one of many you are likely hearing about Afghan families who resettle in the D.C. area. Because of the generosity of others, they are provided with most of their basic necessities when they arrive.

We invite you to take part in warmly receiving refugee families in the D.C. area by donating to "Welcome Home Boxes", through the Lutheran Social Services. You can partner up with others or fulfill the requested items on the list on your own. Then, bring your boxes into church on Sept. 12th.

Pastor Don's Tuesday Journal is up!

"My friend Duane Brooks, pastor of Tallowood Baptist Church in Houston has made a thoughtful suggestion: "One way I measure whether to post (online) is to add 'in Jesus' name' to the end of it. If I can't say it in Jesus' name, I know I shouldn't post it.” A Christian's conversations should always be full of grace. If we each did this, we'd probably have a lot less to read on Facebook, and we'd end up with more time to pray..."
