Dear Black Creek Community Church Family,

 Summer has arrived?   It sure felt like it today.   Donna and I went for a walk, and it was a sunshine, no jacket, even look for some shade event! 

 This week I did aircraft paperwork for almost 3 days.   We have been finishing up a major overhaul and nearing the final stage before beginning flight tests and adjustments. The documentation includes a record of each part replaced and each item worked on or inspected over the last 8 months of work.  

The interesting and sometimes frustrating thing is that even though at this stage (which is kind of exciting) the aircraft may be physically safe to fly,  there is no Legal Authority to fly.... yet.  

Until a qualified, authorized person signs the 'release for flight' and puts it in the log book it needs to stay on the ground! 

Jesus was amazed that someone grasped the Principle of Authority  and how that applied in the situation of Him healing a sick person.   He called it FAITH when that man asked Him to exercise His Authority. 

 Matthew 8:5  When he entered Capernaum, a centurion came forward to him, appealing to him, 6  “Lord, my servant is lying paralyzed at home, suffering terribly.” 7  And he said to him, “I will come and heal him.” 8  But the centurion replied, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof, but only say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9  For I too am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. And I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes, and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” 10  When Jesus heard this, he marveled and said to those who followed him, “Truly, I tell you, with no one in Israel have I found such faith.

 There continue to be lots of folks to pray for.   I am encouraged by hearing continuing reports of God moving in our midst.  As we seek Him, He loves to co - operate with us to be His body in our larger than we realize circles of influence.

This week  There are no significant changes or additions to the 'normal' announcements.

Matthew 28:18  Jesus...gave his charge:  "God authorized and commanded me to commission you: 19  Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life,  marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (The Message)

Go, knowing He has authorized You to make a difference in someone's life,

Blessings and joy,
