FaithHealthNC

 

 At our Connectional Ministry meeting last month, we talked about the FaithHealthNC initiative.  Have you ever known of someone who came home from the hospital, only to return within a few weeks because of complications, lack of follow-up, or confusion over medications? Imagine living on your own, suffering a serious illness or accident, and returning home with no one to provide a ride to the doctor’s office for a follow-up visit, no one to check to see if you are doing okay, no one to help with getting needed medications or food items, no one to help build a wheelchair ramp or make necessary repairs to your home.

Hospitals and doctors can imagine this scenario, because they see it all the time. Lack of consistent follow-up care is the number one reason people return to the hospital, often because they lack something as simple as transportation to their doctor or someone to help get their medication. The Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center is proposing a partnership with local church congregations to help those released from the hospital who need help with some of the above needs when they return home.

(Ask yourself the following:)

 

Would you be willing to give someone in your community a ride home from the hospital?

 

Would you be able to help with transportation to a doctor or therapy appointment?

 

Would you be willing to make a trip to the pharmacy or grocery store for someone?

 

Would you give someone a call or visit to check if they are taking their medications, eating, feeling okay?

If the answer to any of the above questions is yes, you may be a great candidate for participating in the FaithHealth NC initiative! According to their literature, FaithHealth NC “improves health by combining the caring strengths of faith communities and the clinical expertise of medical providers. Volunteers from the faith community help their fellow congregation members and their neighbors in the community before, during and after illness strikes.” Participating congregations appoint volunteer caregivers, who receive special training, to work with the pastor and a health care liaison at the hospital to coordinate care of both church and community members who are identified as needing additional help during times of illness. The training consists of four weekly sessions, to be held either at the new Baptist Hospital in Advance, or here at Advance UMC. The dates for the training will be announced soon, but will most likely be in January of next year.

Our church already has a strong connection providing care in the community--this program will help us identify more folks who are in need so that we can offer them our love and care. What an opportunity for witness! If you are interested in participating in the FaithHealth program, please let me know.

We love you and are so thankful for you,

Wes, Tara, McKenna, Colson and Finley

Joseph and His Brethren
Genesis 42 to Genesis 45
Joseph who is now a leader in Egypt, is united with his brothers, and he forgives them.
THE LAND OF Canaan, where Joseph's father and brothers were living, was one of the countries afflicted by famine; so, when they heard that there was corn in Egypt, Jacob sent his sons there to buy some.

    They did not know, and bowed down before him, that he was their brother whom they had sold for a slave. But Joseph knew them, and treated them roughly, telling them they were spies. They answered him that they were no spies, but honest men--twelve brothers, one of whom, Benjamin, the youngest, was with their father in Canaan; and another, Joseph, was dead. But he said that the only way of proving themselves honest men was for one of them to go and fetch their youngest brother, while he kept the others in Egypt. And, having said this, he put them all in prison for three days.

    On the third day they were brought before Joseph again, and then he told them that one of them must be left in prison, while the others carried corn to their father, and brought back their youngest brother.

    When they heard this they were greatly distressed; and they said to each other that now punishment was coming upon them for their cruelty, a long time ago, to their brother Joseph.

    Joseph wept when he heard his brothers speaking in this way, for he understood what they said, though they did not know it, as he spoke in different language from theirs. Then he sent them away with corn, keeping Simeon till they returned with Benjamin.

    Jacob was very unwilling to let him go; but their corn was soon done, there was none to be had anywhere save in Egypt, and Joseph had said they should not have any more unless Benjamin were with them. So he was obliged to send him.

    When his brothers came again, Joseph entertained them very kindly at first, but presently he made as though he would keep Benjamin for his slave. Upon this, Judah, who had promised to take care of Benjamin, pleaded so earnestly, offering to be a slave in his place, that Joseph told them he was their own brother whom they have sold into Egypt.

    And he forgave them.

    Then he sent for his father, and made them all live with him in the land of Egypt.

Clean Christian Jokes

 

 10-inches deep 

Aboy was sitting on a park bench with one hand resting on an open Bible. He was loudly exclaiming his praise to God. "Hallelujah! Hallelujah! God is great!" he yelled without worrying whether anyone heard him or not.              Shortly after, along came a man who had recently completed some studies at a local university. Feeling himself very enlightened in the ways of truth and very eager to show this enlightenment, he asked the boy about the source of his joy.              "Hey" asked the boy in return with a bright laugh, "Don't you have any idea what God is able to do? I just read that God opened up the waves of the Red Sea and led the whole nation of Israel right through the middle."              The enlightened man laughed lightly, sat down next to the boy and began to try to open his eyes to the "realities" of the miracles of the Bible. "That can all be very easily explained. Modern scholarship has shown that the Red Sea in that area was only 10-inches deep at that time. It was no problem for the Israelites to wade across."              The boy was stumped. His eyes wandered from the man back to the Bible laying open in his lap. The man, content that he had enlightened a poor, naive young person to the finer points of scientific insight, turned to go. Scarcely had he taken two steps when the boy began to rejoice and praise louder than before. The man turned to ask the reason for this resumed jubilation.              "Wow!" exclaimed the boy happily, "God is greater than I thought! Not only did He lead the whole nation of Israel through the Red Sea, He topped it off by drowning the whole Egyptian army in 10 inches of water!"
