Dennis, from Katy, Texas, needed some same-day dry cleaning before he left on a trip. He remembered a store with a huge sign, “One-Hour Dry Cleaners,” on the other side of town, so he drove there to drop off a suit. After filling out the tag, he told the clerk, “I need this
in an hour.”
She said, “I can’t get this back to you until Thursday.” “I thought you did dry cleaning
in an hour.” “No,” she replied, “that’s just the name of the store.”
Likewise, we who say we are Christians but fail to act like the one whose name we bear create confusion and disillusionment for those who have yet to believe.
It may be true that some people will try to take advantage of you and challenge your Christianity just because you didn't do what they wanted you to do, and we shouldn't allow ourselves to be emotionally abused by manipulative people.
But still, I know the last thing I want to hear someone say is, “I thought you were a Christian!” May we all be determined to live out our lives in a way that would not contradict our identity as Christians and that no one would be disillusioned by a lifestyle that would dishonor our Savior.
With love, Pastor Scott

The purpose of One Great Hour of Sharing has remained the same: to collect special gifts to assist those in need. Contributions to One Great Hour of Sharing make a difference in the lives of people. Church World Service, with overseas partners are often the first on the scene following a disaster of natural or human origin. The needs of the people are identified and priorities are set to bring long-term solutions that will improve the quality of life for individuals and communities around the world. One Great Hour of Sharing, nearly 50 years old, continues to respond to needs equally critical as when it was first created.
