Mineral Wells Bible Study Club working through Book of Acts

Ms. Carol Noeding hosted the Mineral Wells Wednesday Bible Study Club on Jan. 22, 2014, at the Black Horse Restaurant.  Ms. Noeding also served as lesson leader for the continued study of the Acts of the Apostles, chapter three.

Ms. Noeding opened her lesson with a prayer that is included in her first edition copy of The Daily Study Bible by William Barclay. This treasured edition of The Daily Study Bible was given to her by her father-in-law. The prayer is from The Book of Common Prayer:  

“BLESSED Lord, who hast caused all holy scriptures to be written for our learning:  grant that we may in such wise hear, read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them, that by patience and comfort of Thy holy Word, we may embrace and ever hold fast the blessed hope of everlasting life, which Thou hast given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ.”

In the third chapter of Acts, verses 1-11, Peter and John are on their way to the Temple at the 9th hour of prayer which was 3 p.m. The Jewish day of prayer began at 6 a.m. and so prayers were at 9 a.m., 12 noon, and 3 p.m. Peter and John had found a new faith, but they did not use that as an excuse to break the old laws. At the Temple they encountered a man who had been lame since birth. Each day he was carried to the gate to ask for alms. He asked Peter and John for alms. Peter told the lame man to look at them and tells the man they have no silver or gold, but they will give him what they have. And Peter commands the lame man, in the name of Jesus, to rise up and walk.  And taking him by the right hand lifts the man up to his feet. Immediately, the man’s feet and ankles receive strength.  Walking, leaping and praising God, the man accompanies Peter and John into the temple to the wonder and amazement of the crowd who follow them to Solomon’s porch.

  • jail.tif Attorney suits up in jailhouse orange for Lent

    In the 40-day season of self-denial called Lent, some Christians give up daily comforts such as chocolate, soda or Facebook. Attorney Kent McKeever felt called to try something a little more uncomfortable.

     

    McKeever, a youth minister and Mission Waco legal advocate, is dressing each day head to toe in orange jailhouse scrubs in solidarity with the imprisoned and returning ex-cons shunned by society.
