Resume ZOOM ?
Was it just for a season?
While our county operated on the "Stay at home and stay safe" phase we met on Zoom every Sunday morning. A good portion of FBCPO enjoyed that time of fellowship. It looks like we are all continuing in transition and, with good reason, some us are not able to attend worship. If you would like to resume the Zoom social experience please contact the church office at email@example.com.

Quiz for this week !!!!
Some of you noticed this picture in the Newsletter and ask who/what/where/why ?
So here is YOUR chance to answer 4 "W's" in the comments. I will post answer in a couple of days.
Our days seem to come and go. Have you ever had any free time with a calculator? I took a few moments last week to clean out my desk and I found the long lost mathematical devise. With a few buttons pushed I discovered that I have been alive approximately 22,265 days. Each one was twenty-four hours long. One would ask, “Where did they go?” Certainly, each day is a gift and our Bibles tell us to take note and count them. Some where someone wrote, “Today is tomorrow we worried about yesterday.”
Jesus didn’t speak many times about our days, other than they are important opportunities. As He spoke of obedient discipleship Jesus said, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me.” (Luke 9:23) This reveals a sacrificial and dedicated commitment to living and learning in Him. Second, Jesus mentions the recognition of our dependence on God’s provision when He said, “Give us this day our daily bread.” (Matt 6:11) Third, Jesus spoke to another the day He was crucified, “Today you will be with Me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43) By saying this on that day reminds us there is a time of promise waiting for those who trust Jesus for our eternal salvation and hope.
Each day is an opportunity. Each day produces a newness. Each day brings a second chance. These days can be understood as new times to learn, to love, to forgive, to reclaim, and to live. Each day is a gift. Maybe not one to take a calculator to remember our thousands of days in wonder, but to consider the ones that lay ahead.
Blessings to us all as we live our lives together.
