A Simple Faith Church

Jump Start to Positive Health and Healing through the Power of 3

                                                             

Nutrition 101 – No matter what or how much you eat, if you are not absorbing the nutrients from the food – YOU ARE AT RISK!  Learn tips and techniques that will make you feel great while you maximize your health and minimize your waistline!

Understanding Digestion – No matter how serious the message, it goes down a bit easier when it’s fun!  We’ll take a ride through the digestive system that is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat!

Meal Planning – Many of us were taught to include every food group at every meal.  This a digestive nightmare!  It requires just a bit of rearranging to work with our perfectly designed system and, fortunately, it’s easy!

This presentation is a call to action! 
People don’t just listen, they get emotionally connected, excited and ready to change!

“The Traveling Twenties”

(AKA Random Acts of Kindness)

“The Beginning…”

It started one day with an eye-opening realization. Not everyone had enough to eat or a friend or smile or heat or even a place to lay their head at night. Everyone was different. Everyone was in need and some were in need more than others. Twenties found their way into some very interesting adventures when they were put into the hands of those who cared but were unable to do. Those people then put twenties into the hands of those who saw but didn’t have twenties to give.  When hearts say help and God says move, adventures are soon to follow!!!

Adventure 11:  Wheelchair Help

We were getting ready to turn left on and we were on a one-way street so it wasn’t wrong to see someone on that side of the road… it was just not normal. But there she sat. Her wheelchair had seen better days and so had she. One stub of a leg stuck out of her clothes on one side and no leg stuck out of the other and we wondered how she smiled at all the cars passing her by. A tall man stood next to her talking to her. They did not go together and we wondered if he just stopped by to talk or was on his way as we came up but we had no time to talk so we called him over and two twenties left to go to two souls on the side of the road. One in a wheelchair home and one just stopping by to talk and help her get some support. 

Adventure #12 coming soon!

 

Can we talk???

weekly giggle!

“Jesus Knows You’re Here”      

A burglar broke into a house one night. He shined his flashlight around, looking for valuables when a voice in the dark said, ‘Jesus knows you’re here.’

He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked his flashlight off, and froze.

When he heard nothing more, after a bit, he shook his head and continued.

Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he

heard ‘Jesus is watching you.’

Freaked out, he shined his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice.

Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came to rest on a

parrot.

‘Did you say that?’ he hissed  at the parrot.

‘Yep’, the parrot confessed, then squawked, ‘I’m just trying to warn you that he is watching you.’

The burglar relaxed. ‘Warn me, huh? Who in the world are you ?’

‘Moses,’ replied the bird.

‘Moses?’ the burglar laughed.

‘What kind of people would name a bird Moses?’

‘The kind of people that would name a Rottweiler Jesus.’

READERS’ CORNER:

When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor . . . and Yourself by Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert

With more than 225,000 copies sold, When Helping Hurts is a paradigm-forming contemporary classic on the subject of poverty alleviation and ministry to those in need. Emphasizing the poverty of both heart and society, this book exposes the need that every person has and how it can be filled. The reader is brought to understand that poverty is much more than simply a lack of financial or material resources and that it takes much more than donations and handouts to solve the problem of poverty.

While this book exposes past and current development efforts that churches have engaged in which unintentionally undermine the people they’re trying to help, its central point is to provide proven strategies that challenge Christians to help the poor empower themselves. Focusing on both North American and Majority World contexts, When Helping Hurts catalyzes the idea that sustainable change for people living in poverty comes not from the outside-in, but from the inside-out.
