“Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another…” (James 4:11, NIV).

     What’s in a name? Apparently, a lot. In many cultures, a name describes the characteristics of the person who bears it.

 “Brothers and sisters, I myself don’t think I’ve reached it, but I do this one thing: I forget about the things behind me and reach out for the things ahead of me. The goal I pursue is the prize of God’s upward call in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:13-14, CEB).

“Now Nadab and Abihu, two of Aaron’s sons, each took an incense pan. They put fire and
incense on them and offered unauthorized fire before the Lord,
which he had not commanded them” (Leviticus 10:1, CEB).
     Recently, I had a conversation with a new member that went something like this. “Wow, the readings from Leviticus are sure boring.” My response was candid: “I can’t disagree with you.”

     Congratulations go out to Elliot Tanner, the youngest member to graduate from The University of Minnesota. Elliot earned a Bachelor of Science Degree last April in Physics at the age of thirteen. Some have compared Elliot to Sheldon Cooper, the quirky character featured in the situation comedy, Young Sheldon.

Read Matthew 18:21-22

I recently came across this story from author, Joseph Marshall III:

A playground dispute in the fourth grade concluded with a barrage of epithets hurled
at me, each one more stinging than the other before. I was called every derogatory name
for Indians that two white fourth-grade classmates could remember. Stunned, I could
think of nothing equally hurtful to throw back.
