I heard this in our sermon last week before we had communion and I wanted to share it with you.
Dr. Welch was a dentist and a Methodist. In the Methodist church we have communion once a month. Years ago Dr. Welch would see people who were addicted to alcohol come for communion. He felt bad that about the alcohol and the church. So he and his family went out and cut 40 pounds of grapes - they juiced them - capped them up in air tight bottles for a few weeks. When they went back and opened it they expected the juice to be spoiled. Instead it was grape juice. Pure delicious grape juice! He went to his minister and gave him some of the juice to use, then to other churches, and a company was born. He was a dentist and a business man.
If you have time to look at only one e-mail today, make it this one.
Thought for the day:
Hi Lord, it’s me. We are getting older and things are getting bad here. Gas prices are too high, no jobs, food and heating costs too high. I know some have taken you out of our schools, government and even Christmas, but Lord I'm asking you to come back and re-bless these United States of America. We really need you! There are more of us who want you than those who don't! Thank You Lord, I Love you.
