The Adams County Record Pastor's Corner The Next Step Council vs the World. In Ephesians 4:17- 19 it says, "With the Lord's authority let me say this: Live no lon- ger as the ungodly do, for they are hopelessly confused. Their closed minds are full of dark- ness; they are far away from the life of God because they have shut their minds and hardened their hearts against him. They don't care anymore about right and wrong, and they have given them- selves over to immoral ways. Their lives are filled with all kinds of impurity and greed." If you turn on the tele- vision and watch the news, it doesn't take long to see how bad things are in this world. From innocent people being killed for no reason, to people who have no hope left who end their lives and often take others with them. There are those whose greed is destroying the lives of others around them. And there are so many today that seem to have a mindset that there is no right and wrong and many that have no remorse for their actions of wrongdoing. And yes, Council definitely has its share of problems. There is bullying in our schools. We have plenty of problems with drugs and alcohol. There are many in need of jobs to support their families. And there are plenty of other problems as well. There are many who are hurting, confused and hopeless. But there are also many things to be thankful for in this community. There are so many people here who are willing to step up and show compas- sion and love in many ways. When someone loses everything in a fire, people are there to help. When someone is sick, or in the hospital, people start praying. When someone dies, people are there to cry with them. We have 00AIIstate. You're in good hands Wednesday, April 11, 2012 by ]on Sorg many who are willing to give their time to many great organiza- tions that give back to this community. We don't need the evil and deception of the world here in Council. So our next step needs to be lots of prayer and a willingness not to conform to this world. As Christians we need to step up and pray for our town, for our schools and our chil- dren, for our leaders, for those who need work, and for those who we know that need hope. We need to pray for the sick, for those suffering loss, and for those that have a long- ing and emptiness they don't understand. If we take the first step in a spiritual awakening in our own lives, God will lead our steps to those we need to reach out to in this community. We have been called to live in this place, and we need to pray for and lift each other up. iNS U R/4 N| CONSULTANTS Steve's Automotive & Towing Insurance surveys show we SAVE you 20% over other tow companies!

I cer- tainly hope your year is full of health and happiness. I'm going to leave you with a "paraprosdokian" (A figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected): "Ilae early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese". How many others can you come up with? First, I would like to say thank you to everyone for their kind thoughts and prayers on my husband's behalf. He is home from the hospital and doing much better and I hope he is on his way to a full recov- ery. Now, the trips back and forth from Cambridge to Boise begin as they fine tune his medications and check his status. Our Idaho Potato bar was attended by 60 people and we had a great time listening to music and eat- ing our fill of Idaho Potatos and toppings. The Council Jammers were great as usual and we senior's are so blessed to have such a wonderful group to play at our fund raisers. A special thank you to our volun- teers who worked that eve- ning: Paul Radasch, Beth Bramble, Elsie Coburn, Dan and Glenda Castleberry, Charlie Caruso and Lola Ader.
