How To Stop A Church Gossip

Mildred, the church gossip, and self-appointed monitor of the church's morals, kept sticking her nose into other people's business.. Several members did not approve of her extra curricular activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence. She made a mistake, however, when she accused Ray, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his old pickup parked in front of the town's Only bar one afternoon. She emphatically told Ray (and several others) that every one seeing it there WOULD KNOW WHAT HE WAS DOING ! Ray, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just turned and walked away. He didn't explain, defend, or deny. He said nothing.. Later that evening, Ray quietly parked his pickup in front of Mildred's house .... Walked home ... And left it there all night. (You gotta love Ray!)

A book to be aware of...

BEWARE OF THIS BOOK THAT OPRAH IS PUSHING! If you have children or grandchildren, work with children at church, or you have neighborhood children whose parents you know, please take note of the information below and pass it along to others. Schools are distributing this book to children through the Scholastic Book Club. The name of the book is Conversations with God... James Dobson talked about this book twice this week. It is devastating . Parents, churches and Christian schools need to be aware of it. Please pass this information on to church/e-mail addresses, Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, friends.
