Jean Talley Talks About Our Treatment of Others

Sabbath services on January 30, 2016 began with a song service led by Brenda Herra, accompanied on the piano by Jacqueline Miller. The opening song was “The Church Has One Foundation”.  

Elizabeth Castle had prayer and read Psalm 19:7-11 “7 ¶ The law of the LORD [is] perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD [is] sure, making wise the simple. 8 The statutes of the LORD [are] right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD [is] pure, enlightening the eyes. 9 The fear of the LORD [is] clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD [are] true [and] righteous altogether. 10 More to be desired [are they] than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: [and] in keeping of them [there is] great reward.”

Jean Talley welcomed everyone. Andre Lewis then read a mission story about the medical work on the Amazon River.  Pastor Hallowell pioneered the work in this area; the tribesmen were fascinated by a hand cranked gramophone. One noted village of head hunters terrified one young man working with missionaries, but the villagers welcomed them due to that gramophone. Eventually the tribe had to move to another location near a city, and fights broke out frequently due to alcohol. Half the tribe are currently Seventh-day Adventists.

Elyjah (9th grader) then collected the Laurelbrook Missions Offering. Jean Talley had the superintendent’s remarks on treating other people the way God wants us to.  Laura Mae Zollinger then sang “There Were Ninety and Nine”. She then had closing prayer.  The congregation then became two Sabbath School classes, one taught by Clayton Brandt in the church sanctuary and one taught by Bob Gustafson “behind the glass” in the church.
Following are a few notes from the theme talk by Jean Talley: 
  1. God’s Law is a protection and security for God’s followers.
  2. We are to love our neighbors as ourselves and not harm others spiritually, emotionally, or mentally.
  3. Instead of coveting what our neighbor has, we should be happy that this person has this new possession.
  4. The only two commandments that are not “Thou Shalt Not” are the 4th and 5th commandments.
