Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be
healed; Save me, and I shall be
saved, For You are my praise.
Jeremiah 17:14


 Greetings to all our newsletter readers. The Jones Chapel UMC Newsletter “Sharing the News” was started as the Jones Chapel Newsletter in Nov. of 1992. There has actually been 289 issues that have been published as the issue numbers have been a little scued. It was started by Leslye Beria and Chuck Pedrotti. After a year or so Chuck stopped his part and Perry Riden came on board as co-publisher. Then eventually Chuck moved back to California with his family in approximately 1997. For all these 24+ years the Lord has blessed the writings of this monthly paper. A lot of prayer and work has gone into it. At this time, prayer has gone into it wholeheartedly in order to make the decision of whether or not to continue this paper. As of late, the readership has dropped off. So, as was mentioned, through prayer, it has been decided that it is time to put this newsletter to bed. Our season is ending as of this August issue! If anyone would like to take this over each month, we would love to have you take it over! Or if you do not want to see it stopped, please let Perry know.
We are so thankful to everyone who has taken the time to read it, as well as those who have submitted items for publishing. And to each one who has been blessed by it we thank you from our whole hearts.

May God be with you and bless you richly!

There is a time for everything, and a season
for every activity under the heavens:
Ecclesiastes 3:1

Much love and blessings,
Perry and Leslye

“God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.” Hebrews 6:10


Kids Say the Funniest Things

A Sunday School teacher decided to have her young class memorize one of the most quoted passages in the Bible — Psalm 23. She gave the youngsters a month to learn the verse. Little Bobby was excited about the task, but he just couldn’t remember the Psalm. After much practice, he could barely get past the first line. On the day that the kids were scheduled to recite Psalm 23 in front of the congregation, Bobby was so nervous. When it was his turn, he stepped up to the microphone and said proudly, “The Lord is my shepherd . . . and that’s all I need to know!”


When life gets too hard to stand, kneel.

 “Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.”                                                                                         Psalms 61:1-3

 Flag Day  
Date When Celebrated:  Always June 14th
Flag Day, is a day for all Americans to celebrate and show respect for our flag, its designers and makers. Our flag is representative of our independence and our unity as a nation…..one nation, under God, indivisible. Our flag has a proud and glorious history. It was at the lead of every battle fought by Americans. Many people have died protecting it. It even stands proudly on the surface of the moon.
As Americans, we have every right to be proud of our culture, our nation, and our flag. So raise the flag today and every day with pride!

While Jesus was still speaking, someone
came from the house of Jairus, the
synagogue leader. “Your daughter is
           dead,” he said. “Don’t bother the teacher anymore.”                                                    Hearing this, Jesus said
to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just
believe, and she will be healed.”
Luke 8:49-50

May Day
Date When Celebrated: Always May 1st
May Day, the first of May is celebrated around the world. It has a number of meanings. In many other countries it is a celebration of spring and the coming of summer. It is celebrated with many spring flowers, many of them blooming right in your own backyard. To communist and socialist countries, it is a celebration for the workers.
In many countries it is celebrated as part of a one to three day holiday. Of particular note, it is not a national holiday in the United States, except in Hawaii where it is known as “Lei Day”.


Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly,
teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
Colossians 3:16

The Lord has done it this very day;
let us rejoice today and be glad.
Psalm 118:24


The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another.
The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month.
Henry van Dyke


In 1557 a gentleman by the name of Thomas Tusser compiled a collection of writings he called A Hundred Good Points of Husbandry. In the April Husbandry section he wrote:

Sweet April showers


Do spring May flowers

As you can see, the rhyme was originally a short poem. There is meaning behind the words, as well. “April showers bring May flowers” is a reminder that even the most unpleasant of things, in this case the heavy rains of April, can bring about very enjoyable things indeed – in this case, an abundance of flowers in May. “April showers bring May flowers” is a lesson in patience, and one that remains valid to this day.

where I am, there will my servant be also. If
anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.
John 12:26

You shall walk after the Lord your God

and obey his voice, and you shall serve
him and hold fast to him.
Deuteronomy 13:4


“In the New Testament, love is more of a verb than a noun. It has more to do with acting than with feeling. The call to love is not so much a call to a certain state of feeling as it is to a quality of action.”                                                                                                                                     RC Sproul

Sing to the LORD a new song, for

right hand and his holy arm have
worked salvation for him.
Psalm 98:1


To Start A New Year. . . . . . . . . . . . . Anonymous
“A new year is unfolding—like a blossom with petals curled tightly concealing the beauty within.
Lord, let this year be filled with the things that are truly good—with the comfort of warmth in our relationships, with the strength to help those who need our help and the humility and openness to accept help from others.
As we make our resolutions for the year ahead, let us go forward with great hope that all things can be possible—with Your help and guidance.”

I Am the New Year. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Bible Illustrator

I am the new year. I am an unspoiled page in your book of time.

I am your next chance at the art of living. I am your opportunity to practice what you have learned about life during the last twelve months.

All that you sought and didn’t find is hidden in me, waiting for you to search it but with more determination.

All the good that you tried for and didn’t achieve is mine to grant when you have fewer conflicting desires.

All that you dreamed but didn’t dare to do, all that you hoped but did not will, all the faith that you claimed but did not have—these slumber lightly, waiting to be awakened by the touch of a strong purpose.

I am your opportunity to renew your allegiance to Him who said, “Behold, I make all things new.”

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU!

SEE YOU NEXT MONTH!

Kids Say the Funniest Things

A bright 8-year-old child was being tested by the Speech Teacher and was given analogies and asked to describe the following differences: Speech Teacher: “What’s the difference between an oak tree and a Christmas tree?” Child: “One has leaves and the other has needles.” Teacher: “Very good! What’s the difference between a saucer and a plate?” Child: “One files and the other doesn’t.”

Kids Say the Funniest Things

When a mother saw a thunderstorm forming in mid-afternoon, she worried about her seven-year-old daughter who would be walking the three blocks from school to home.  Deciding to meet her, the mother saw her daughter walking nonchalantly along, stopping to smile whenever lightning flashed.  Seeing her mother, the little girl ran to her, explaining happily, “All the way home, God’s been taking my picture!”

― John Piper


To this end also we pray for you always, that our God willcount you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power, 12so that the name of our Lord Jesus will be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
