THIS WEEK'S SCRIPTURE READING

OLD TESTAMENT READING:
Jeremiah 17:5-10

NEW TESTAMENT READING
First Corinthians 15:12-20
This past Christmas, the Session received a letter from The Rev. William (Bill) Yoder. Bill is currently living in Thailand where he is the Dean Emeritus at The McGilvary College of Divinity at Payap University. But years ago, Bill had a lot of friendships here at Northminster before retiring from ministry in the PC(USA) in 2006. He was especially good friends with Jean Naughtrip, who went to be with the Lord in 2014.
Bill reports to us that he mails out letters to hundreds of churches, and so we are trying to help him keep his mailing list current. Therefore, if you remember Bill, could you let Pastor Rich or Barb know? If Bill still has old friends at Northminster, we would love to help him keep these relationships alive.
