Lazarus Awakening:Finding Your Place in the Heart of God by Joanna Weaver.
In this book, you’ll encounter the story of Mary, Martha, and Lazarus in a fresh way as you open your heart to the truth that you are cherished—apart from anything you accomplish. Just as He called Lazarus forth to new life, Jesus wants to free you to live fully in the light of His love, unhindered by fear, regret, or self-condemnation. You can choose between Monday or Wednesday evenings for this 8-week study, starting Sept. 17 at the church. The cost of the book is $12.00. Contact Jen Keithley or Pam Winterroth by Sept. 9 to reserve a book.
Although the study started, it’s not too late to join in! Contact Jen or Pam for information.

At seven he had already moved more times than the total number of years he had been on earth. And this time, like the times before, he moved with his belongings in a trash bag. A suitcase, at least, would have added a small degree of dignity to the whole affair--to be placed in another and yet another foster home before reaching 3rd grade. Trash bags break, you know. Trash bags can't possibly support the contents of any life, and certainly not a life as fragile as this. - Social Worker from "The Child I Didn't Adopt"
