Blizzard Bags Help Homebound Seniors

You can help our homebound seniors weather the upcoming winter storms.  Next time you’re grocery shopping, simply pick up an extra item to donate to St. Luke’s Blizzard Bags.
“For most of us, winter storms means slick roads and freezing temperatures.  For homebound seniors, it can mean going hungry,” Ending Hunger OKC Director Chris Lambert said.  “Blizzard Bags serve as emergency provisions for those times the weather prevents us from delivering Meals on Wheels or Mobile Meals.”

My mother grew up in a small community in southwest Oklahoma.  She shared with me several great stories of her time in this little farming town.  It was easy to tell that, although her childhood was not filled with material things, it was a full life surrounded by family and friends.  My mom’s childhood was not always easy, but she saw much of it as a blessing.

Luke 7:1-10

When Jesus had finished saying all this to the people who were listening, he entered Capernaum. There a centurion’s servant, whom his master valued highly, was sick and about to die. The centurion heard of Jesus and sent some elders of the Jews to him, asking him to come and heal his servant. When they came to Jesus, they pleaded earnestly with him, “This man deserves to have you do this, because he loves our nation and has built our synagogue.” So Jesus went with them.

Why David Didn’t Fear Goliath

The story of David & Goliath is one of the great stories of our faith. It is the story of a powerful soldier, Goliath. He is a giant of a man who is strong and brash. Goliath is described as a “Champion of the Philistines.” They are the dreaded enemies of Israel.

They were outmatched on this battlefield and there was no better example of that than the great warrior, Goliath.
