"And thus I aspired to preach the gospel, not where Christ was already named, so that I would not build on another man's foundation." Romans 15:20

Title of Letter

The university where I teach as an adjunct professor provides laptop computers for its students. While this can be an aid to the students in many ways, I have discovered one way it hinders learning: The laptops can become a distraction during class.

Because the students take notes on their laptops, they have them open on thier desks during class. The problem is that they find testing their friends, vistiing Facebook, or checking things on the internet more interesting then my lectures.

 A laptop loses value in the lerning environment if it becomes a distraction--even if what the students are doing is positive.

Good things can do that.  Things that have value can draw our attenditon away from what we should be paying attention to.  This was true for Martha. Luke 10:40 says she was "distracted with much serving," which took her away from spending time with Jesus.  In the sam way, a good hobby can have value in and of itself.  But if it distracts you from your family responsibilities or relationship with God, some changes are needed.

Are life's good options distracting you from what your primary priorities should be? Return, as Jesus told Martha, to what "is needed."

FCC Prayer Group

 

We have established a prayer group through an app called “Group Me”.  The app permits all group members to post current prayer requests as soon as they receive them.  This allows posted prayer requests to be immediately lifted up to our heavenly Father.  If you would like to be added to the group text, please see me at your convenience and I will happily get you connected.

We also have members in the group who receive a phone call with prayer requests.  If you would like to get prayer requests by phone, please let me know that too! Karen Christiensen
