Fennell Visitor March 11, 2001
A warm welcome is extended to all. We pray that our worship will be acceptable to God and that each one will be encouraged and edified this day. If you are visiting with us, please consider yourself to be very welcome and return again whenever you can.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyoned measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. You are born to make manifest the Glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we consciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Bible Word Search
There are 21 Bible book names hidden in the paragraph below.
Can you find them?
I once made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible. It was a lulu, kept people looking so hard for facts. For others it was a real revelation. Some were in a jam, especially since the names of the books are not capitalized. But the truth finally struck home to numbers of readers. It should be a most fascinating few moments for you. Yes, there are some books that will be a hard job to find, but those are the most fun.
Can a human being really find all twenty-one of them? At the worst, you should find fifteen. No defect in the genes is required, although I will admit it usually takes a minister to find one of them and there will be loud lamentations when it is found.
What will keep you from answering the challenge? A little lady says she brews a cup of tea so she can concentrate better.
How long you keep working on it only you can judge, so long as you try to compete.
Remember, we’ve had fun seeking out 21 books of the Bible, but it is by far more important to "seek first his kingdom and his righteousness"
