Tele- phone 535-6932. Sunday morning services at 9:45 a.m Evening services on the first and third "What goes up must come down??" You might just question the punctuation at the end of the preceding sentence. "Isn't this Isaac Newton's indisputable law of gravity? Who are you to question this? You must be well, kidding, I hopeP' We are not questioning Mr. Newton's law. As the title says, this subject is one of "divine gravity". This concept does not depend on earthly laws of physics. It depends upon our spiritual attitude. Situations and events in our earthly experience do not have to determine whether we are feeling "up" or "down". Of course, as humans, we have normal reactions of happiness and sadness, but when we have faith in God's wisdom and the accomplishment of His will in our lives, our spirits continue to soar, not bound by earthly events. We read in the first lines of Psalm 121 "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence my help comes from God who made the heavens and the earth." Won't you offer up your soul to God's divine power in worship this week? Your spirit will soar when you give your heart to your Heavenly Father and all of earth's concerns will not get you down.
