Monthly Bulletin Building Lives, Transforming Communities October 2014 UPCOMING HIGHLIGHTS 11th October Men’s Breakfast 18th October Young Adults Trivia Night 19th October Loud Shirt Day 25th October Shopping Tour Loud Shirt Day... Wayne Swift This month we are going to join in with many other people around the country and support “Loud Shirt Day.” On Sunday 19th October we are encouraging every person to wear an outrageously bold and garish shirt to church on Sunday morning. Loud Shirt Day is an effort to raise funds and awareness of people who suffer deafness. The church will be making a donation towards this great cause. All around us there are people with special needs; sickness, disorders, learning difficulties, OCD, dyslexia and a whole range of other issues plague so many people. Personally I think most of us struggle with some sort of short coming or another it’s just that many go undiagnosed! How we treat people with short comings says a lot about ourselves. Recently I wrote an article about judgemental attitudes and suggested a judgemental attitude may well be borne out of a lack of faith in God or of other people. Just because I see short comings doesn’t mean I should treat those people as less than myself, rather, if I read my Bible correctly I should love all the more. “And he will answer, ‘I tell you the truth, when you refused to help the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were refusing to help me.’ Matthew 25:45 (NLT) Did you know?
