Morning Sermon:  Joshua 7: 2-6.  Evening Sermon by Bro. Rick: II Samuel 7:22; Romans 3:22; and Micah 6.  Main points:  God does not want you to look back and be disappointed forever; he wants you to get on with life and move on.  God is always interested in his people.  We are his main interest.  That is why we are called the “salt” of the earth and our main focus in life should be God, not hobbies, things, sports, etc.  Two great quotes in the bulletin:  (1) Sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand.  (2) It would be much nicer if everyone who attempted to point a finger would instead hold out a hand.
