Mandy and her terrific kids were all smiles today, enjoying their library time and borrowing books to take home and enjoy. They will really smile when they read this Facebook post and see they saved $226.00 by borrowing the books from Truett Library instead of purchasing them. (It makes a person think.)

Kim Jaggers ‘ story begins with what seems the happiest of lives – happy but complacent, until God challenged her through a sermon, to the point she understood her need to truly make Jesus Lord of her life and to make it a priority to seek Him in His Word. When the really, really sad days came, she could cling to Him, for she had already come to know Him to be the “Truth to Hold On To.” Today Kim has a thriving ministry to women through speaking, writing, through her website https://kimjaggers.com and her daily Facebook posts @Kim Jaggers–Daily Seeking Him. In addition, you will be truly blessed to read her amazing story “Truth To Hold On To,” available at Truett Library.

We wanted to let you know - all of you who are Believers in Jesus - that YOU’VE GOT MAIL! Yes!! a letter addressed to you as a true believer. It’s a brief letter, though we call it the BOOK of Jude, with an important warning that is as relative today as it was 2000 years ago. It was, and still is, an appeal to contend earnestly for the faith – to stand up for the truth of God’s Word. In our crumbling culture, what can we do? We recommend you read your letter, and let O.S. Hawkins guide you through it with his book “In Sheep’s Clothing.” (Available in Truett Library)

The term Apostasy may seem far removed from our world, but it is alive and well in many churches and college campuses. Apostasy is “an act of refusing to continue to follow, obey, or recognize a religious faith.” You know, like when Adam and Eve refused to continue to follow and obey when Satan’s questioned, “Did God REALLY say…?” A new example recently occurred when atheist Greg Epstein was unanimously elected to be the chief chaplain at Harvard by his fellow university chaplains. How could that happen to a university whose original purpose was to train Christian ministers?? Unfortunately, the same old struggle has been around since man began. (Just read Jude.) Alisa Childers tells of her own experience of being invited to an in-depth, ongoing study led by her pastor who, in the first session introduced himself as a hopeful agnostic! Weekly, his insidious questions were directed to the class in an effort to disprove their Biblical beliefs. While the others seem to embrace this new “Progressive” Christianity, Alisa felt close to losing her mooring. She quit the class and began her own search for the truth. She writes all about it in “Another Gospel?” It’s a beautifully written book that will inform you, equip you, and inspire you. If you can’t read all of it, read the last chapter. Truett Library is happy to offer the book to you as a physical book, a digital book, and a digital audiobook.

It is very nice to have our former pastor, O.S. Hawkins, return to the pulpit for our Revival, which ends this Tuesday. The Revival starts at 6:30 in the Original Historic Sanctuary, but we invite you to come a little early and visit Truett Library to check out our collection of Dr. Hawkins’ GREAT books! Truett Library is located directly under the Sanctuary and can be reached by stairs or elevator. Truett Library will be open until 6pm (in order for the librarians to get a good seat at the Revival!)

The 2021 Summer Reading Club was a huge success! We are tallying up the numbers and will be posting the results soon. Most important is that lots of children and youth read lots of books and earned 1 or 2, even 3 prizes. We are so proud of each one of them and thank their parents and other family members who encouraged them in the reading. Also, a big thankyou to our volunteers, Debby Hernandez, Ruth Miller, Karen Ehart, Jerry Turner, Jeff and Chris Lumkes, and David and Carol O'ffill!

Your librarian hasn't lost her touch and got this little man to calm down and go to sleep. As Mr. Jerry says, "Truett Library is a full service library."
