THE MAN IN THE ARENA

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Answer to the ?

Look what the coolest kid of all allowed to happen to himself. You know why he/she did it. But it is really hard for a child to understand.

After all what good does it do to be “A cool kid” if you can’t even save yourself. We as adults know that it was done to show our God’s children (us) what the beauty and power of  love is.

Brighter Together

In our July series -- "This Little Light of Mine" --- we will explore the light of Jesus Christ!  We will discuss what it looks like to increasingly discover His light: how we were created to be light; be encouraged to recognize the light in others; find out how we can shine brightly together as a community; and be encouraged to turn from the things that dim out light -- so we can SHINE like never before.
