12932 S Elwood Ave · Glenpool OK, 74033 The Manners of Christians The following is an excerpt from a Christian text from the second century. It was written by a Christian who calls himself Mathetes, which simply means "disciple." He is writing to a man name Diognetus and describing the Christian life. I think it is a wonderful explanation of what the Christian life was then and what it can still be today. -- Ben Williams

by any speculation or deliberation of inquisitive men; nor do they, like some, proclaim themselves the advocates of any merely human doctrines. But, inhabiting Greek as well as barbarian cities, according as the lot of each of them has determined, and following the customs of the natives in respect to clothing, food, and the rest of their ordinary conduct, they display to

us their wonderful and confessedly striking method of life. They dwell in their own countries, but simply as sojourners. As citizens, they share in all things with others, and yet endure all things as if foreigners. Every foreign land is to them as their na-
tive country, and every land of their birth as a land of strangers. They marry, as do
all [others]; they beget children; but they do not destroy their offspring. They have
a common table, but not a common bed. They are in the flesh, but they do not live
after the flesh. They pass their days on earth, but they are citizens of

WELCOME TO HOLLAND I am often asked to describe the experience of raising a child with a disability--to try to help people who have not shared the unique experience to understand it, to imagine how it would feel. It's like this... When you're going to have a baby, it's like planning a fabulous vacation trip--to Italy. You buy a bunch of guide books and make your wonderful plans. The coliseum, the Michelangelo David, the gondolas in Venice. You may learn some handy phrases in Italian. It's all very exciting. After months of eager anticipation, the day finally arrives. You pack your bags and off you go. Several hours later, the plane lands. The stewardess comes in and says, "Welcome to Holland." "Holland?!?" you say. "What do you mean Holland??" I signed up for Italy! I'm suppose to be in Italy. All my life I've dreamed of going to Italy." But there's been a change in the flight plan. They've landed in Holland and there you must stay. The important thing is that they haven't take you to a horrible, disgusting, filthy place, full of pestilence, famine and disease. It's just a different place. So you must go out and buy new guide books. And you must learn a whole new language. And you will meet a whole new group of people you would never have met. It's just a different place. It's slower-paced than Italy, less flashy than Italy. But after you've been there for a while and you catch your breath, you look around... and you begin to notice that Holland has windmills, and tulips, even Rembrandts. But everyone you know is busy coming and going from Italy... and they're all bragging about what a wonderful time they had there. And for the rest of your life, you will say "Yes, that's where I was supposed to go. That's what I had planned." And the pain of that will never, ever, ever go away... because the loss of that dream is a very, very significant loss. But... if you spend your life mourning the fact that you didn't get to Italy, you may never be free to enjoy the very special, the very lovely things... about Holland.

IN NEED OF OUR PRAYERS Nyla Nunley was told she no longer has pneumonia, but she does have a horrible cough. Henry Lack is having some health problems. Service men and women: Jenna Sullivan; Jacob Littlebear; David Guten (Afghanistan) Our friends and family: Suzanne Stamps; Jeannene Thomas (cancer); Barbara Vaughan; Eric Vaughan (heart); Bryant Calip (chemo); Bill Taylor (cancer); Jerry O'Shields; Jesse Byers (knee pain); Betty Jo Heltzel; Henry Lack; and others DEAR TEACHER... If you and God had a chance to talk, I think it should be about... ...giving boys more grace. Mark, age 10 ...where He came from. Lindsay, age 10 ... the questions that no one can answer. Like how did He create people? Keneth, age 10 ...why God made humans and not aliens. Gabriel, age 11 ...how if you get sick, it's not a big deal, but if God gets sick we're really going to be messed up. Joe, age 12 ...whether I'm going to heaven or not. And by the way, if you don't mind, put in a good word for me. Sarah, age 11 ...how does God listen to a lot of prayers at the same time? Kristy, age 11 MEN Just an FYI, Mother's Day is in two weeks!
FROG ROAD CAMP It is time to start thinking about camp! If you plan on attending Frog Road Camp this year there are APPLICATION FORMs on the table in the foyer, or you can go on line at www.frogroad.com. Application deadline is May 11th. FROG ROAD WORK DAY The next work day at Frog Road Camp is Saturday, May 9th. See Ben for questions. UPDATED ADDRESS Here is an address for Dillon Myrick while he is at school in Japan: Dillon Myrick / Corpo River Side, Apt #209 / 3-3-25 Metoba / Matsumoto, Nagano, 390-0806 / Japan. I am sure he would love to hear from us; he will be there until the end of July (please allow 7-10 days for him to receive mail). MOVING ON UP The Elders are asking that we move to the front of the auditorium on Sunday evenings and Wednesday evenings, instead of being scattered out. Thank you! OLD BATHROOM--NEW PURPOSE It was the Men's bathroom, it is now the "Family Bathroom". The men's room located next door to the nursery class is now the "Family Bathroom". There is a lock on the inside for privacy. This could be used by a Dad who has a baby that needs a clean diaper (a changing table will be installed soon), or a Mom with young boys... there are all kinds of examples. Men, there are still two bathrooms just for you, one in the fellowship room and one just north of the foyer.
