Grace Note for September 4
September 4, 2015 by David Russell
Hello, I'm David Russell and this is a GRACE NOTE. If you've ever seen the TV game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? You are familiar with the "lifelines" each contestant may use when they are uncertain about the answer to a question. They symbolize the way many people think about life's ultimate questions. 50/50: Some people hope they will make it to heaven. They think they have at least a 50/50 chance. They're trying to do enough good things to get in. Phone a friend: Some people do what their friends do, think what their friends think, and are counting on their friends to be right about ultimate truth. Ask the audience: Others accept the majority view. If New Age is in, they follow it. If 60 percent of the country rejects the Bible, they reject the Bible. Who or What is your lifeline? GRACE NOTES ARE BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE PEOPLE OF THE BENTON FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH. ....

Grace Note for September 3
September 3, 2015 by David Russell
Hello, I'm David Russell and this is a GRACE NOTE. An amateur genealogical researcher discovered that his great-great uncle, Remus Starr, a fellow lacking in character, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Montana in 1889. The only known photograph of Remus shows him standing on the gallows. On the back of the picture is this inscription: "Remus Starr; horse thief; sent to Montana Territorial Prison 1885, escaped 1887; robbed the Montana Flyer six times. Caught by Pinkerton detectives. Convicted and hanged 1889." In a Family History subsequently written by the researcher, Remus’s picture is cropped so that all that's seen is a head shot. The accompanying biographical sketch is as follows: "Remus Starr was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory. His business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with the Montana railroad. Beginning in 1885, he devoted several years of his life to service at a government facility, finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the railroad. In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the renowned Pinkerton Detective Agency. In 1889, Remus passed away during an important civic function held in his honor when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed." The facts are often shaped and colored by who we are and what we want others to understand. But God knows who we really are and loves us warts and all.

Grace Note for September 2
September 2, 2015 by David Russell
Hello, I'm David Russell and this is a GRACE NOTE. The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him, and every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the elements, and to store his few possessions. But then one day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, the smoke rolling up to the sky. The worst had happened; everything was lost. He was stunned with grief and anger. "God, how could you do this to me!" he cried. Early the next day, however, he was awakened by the sound of a ship that was approaching the island. It had come to rescue him. "How did you know I was here?" asked the weary man of his rescuers. "We saw your smoke signal," they replied. How true, how true. We see only in part and do not realize at the time how God is working all things together for good. GRACE NOTES ARE BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE PEOPLE OF THE BENTON FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH. ....
