    Memory Verse
     "But if I say, "I will not mention his word or speak 
      anymore in his name," his word is in my heart like a
      fire, a fire shut up in my bones.  I am weary of
      holding it in; indeed, I cannot.    
      -Jeremiah 20:9
    Thought For the Week
     If we try to contain God's Message we destroy
     ourselves and our community but if we let if go
     there will be Peace with Justice!
