What's a Disciple?

August is a much calmer month for me now that I don’t have any kids or a husband going back to school. I like it. Things calm down some and I can enjoy summer a little longer.

But new school supplies beckon and entice. Memories of first day of school clothes and new crayons flood my mind. Heading back to school seems like a great time to me now.

What does it mean to be a student? I guess, someone who studies, watches, listens and thinks in order to learn. I like to think I’m still a student wanting to learn new things. What does it mean to be a disciple? I’ve always had ‘student’ in my mind as another word for disciple. So perhaps, one way I can be a student is to be a disciple – or student of Jesus. For that’s what I really want to learn: how to be like Jesus.

Tomorrow our topic for learning during worship is “Are You His Disciple?” And a focus for our day will be the annual Back to School Blessing for students, educators and staff, and parents. We’ll learn about a new initiative to pair every GGCC child with an adult mentor. You won’t want to miss it. We’ll be looking for you at 9:00 or 10:30 a.m.

Grace and peace,

compatibility problems? A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my website not
operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do
you have any suggestions to help fix this

Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
which blog platform are you using for this website? I'm
getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers
and I'm looking at options for another platform.

I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of
a good platform.
