COMMENTARY

More than a century ago, a kid living in Decatur {Illinois} saved his money and ordered a book on photography but when the book arrived, it was a book on the art of ventriloquism. The child was not the least bit interested in ventriloquism: in fact, he had to ask his mother what ventriloquism meant. He could not afford to send the book back and he was curious so he began to read the book. It wasn’t long until he became interested in ventriloquism and he learned to throw his voice as a child. When he grew up, he got a wooden dummy and named him Charley McCarthy. Born out of a deep disappointment, providentially Edgar Bergen found a career. Victor Hugo was a Napoleon supporter and avid republican. After Napoleon was deposed, Hugo was also exiled to the island of Guernsey. At first he despised the solitude but it was here that he wrote his most famous novel Les Miserables. This novel has been put to screen twice since 1998. Just last year a new movie version was released starring Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe. Joseph was betrayed by his brothers and sold into slavery; within 13 years he became the Prime Minister of Egypt and the savior of two nations. In every case something that appeared bad worked out for good.

EXTRA

Visitation for Regina Shipley’s dad, Bobby Hembree, is today from 9:00-11:00 at Peck and the service is at 11:00. Another great crowd for supper last night and another good service: God is good. I love the rain. It is falling perfectly. Thank YOU Jesus. I am beside myself–Hallelujah, what a Savior!
