(May 23, 2018)
This day in history, May 23, was a deadly day that brought a little peace to the land. Heinrich Himmler, head of the Nazi Gestapo, committed suicide after being captured by Allied Forces. Gangsters Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were killed by Texas Rangers in 1934. Finally, in 1701, Captain William Kidd, the Scottish pirate, was hanged on the banks of the River Thames. No word on whether he and notorious gunfighter Billy are related.
Tonight is the final Wednesday service of the spring for adults, youth and children. They all begin at 6:30 p.m. Rip Pope will conclude his teaching on “Finding Faith To Move Your Mountains.” The youth will have an end of year barbecue.
We need a few volunteers to help move someone on Saturday. James Owens and Victoria Yates are former members of MORE and Victoria’s mother, Eileen, who has had a lung transplant could use some help. She’s moving from one unit to another unit in the same apartment complex. It’s one story, too. If you can help, please be at her apartment at 9 a.m. that day. The address is Northwest Village Apartments, #2, 6101 I-40 West. If you need directions, please contact Alissa Von Theumer or Pastor Lyndal. Alissa also can give you more information on what’s needed.
Our annual church swimming party is scheduled for 7-9 p.m., June 20, at Southwest Park Pool. In addition to the pool and visiting, we will have the Jungle Run and sand volleyball court available. Someone might bring a volleyball this year if you want to play. They don’t always have one. There is no charge.
Please check the calendar below for more information. You also can go to our website at www.ilovemore.org or visit us on Facebook.

Thoughts for the week:
Little Tony was in his uncle’s wedding. As he came down the aisle during the ceremony, he carefully took two steps then stopped and turned to the crowd. When facing the congregation, he put his hands up like claws and roared loudly. So, it went, step, step, turn, roar. Step, step, turn, roar. All the way down the aisle.
As you can imagine, the congregation was near tears from laughing. By the time little Tony reached the altar, he was near tears, too. Later, when asked what he was doing, the boy sniffed and said, “I was being the Ring Bear.”
Reverend Walker was scheduled to perform a special wedding ceremony immediately following the Sunday morning service. He planned to perform the rite before the entire congregation but for the life of him, he could not remember the names of the two members whom he was to marry.
He got around his dilemma this way: “Will those who want to get married now, please come stand before me.”
At once, six single ladies, four widows and five single men stood, went to the aisle and walked to the front.
That’s all, folks. Enjoy the rest of your week.
