I hope everyone had a great weekend.
Ms. June Davis, 95, one of our sweet Deanburg ladies, passed away last week. Her funeral was at Casey Funeral Home with burial in Pleasant Springs United Methodist Church. She had been a member of Bethel Baptist since she was 11 years old. She was very devoted to her church and her Lord! She has been in the nursing home for several years, and I have not gotten to see her since they have stopped having visitation because of the COVID-19 virus. I sure have missed visiting with her and will continue to miss her. Our sincere condolences to her son Rich Davis of Memphis, her two grandsons, and her brother Horace (Evelyn) Bell from LaVergne.

Devotion for the week: “Friendship – ‘The godly give good advice to their friends; the wicked lead them astray.’ (NLT) (Proverbs 12:26). Have you ever shied away from giving advice to a friend for fear you will step on their toes? When was the last time you earnestly sought counsel from a trusted friend and actually listened to their input? Godly friendship requires us to be willing to give advice and kindly speak the truth into each other’s lives. When we are living with humility we are able to learn and grow when others give us input. When we are living with wisdom we seek out the advice of others.” Download this app to get your daily devotions: www.jctrois.com/dailybibledevotion/devotion.html?devo=GGEzwfivBF.
