baptizing a drunk

                    An Irishman is stumbling through the woods, totally drunk, when he comes upon a preacher baptizing people in the river. He proceeds into the water, subsequently bumping into the preacher. The preacher turns around and is almost overcome by the smell of alcohol, whereupon, he asks the drunk, "Are you ready to find Jesus?" The drunk shouts, "Yes, I am." So the preacher grabs him and dunks him in the water. He pulls him back and asks, "Brother, have you found Jesus?" The drunk replies, "No, I haven't found Jesus!" The preacher, shocked at the answer, dunks him again but for a little longer. He again pulls him out of the water and asks, "Have you found Jesus, brother?"

 

                    The drunk answers, "No, I haven't found Jesus!" By this time, the preacher is at his wits end and dunks the drunk again --  but this time holds him down for about 30 seconds, and when he begins kicking his arms and legs about, he pulls him up. The preacher again asks the drunk, "For the love of God, have you found Jesus?"

                    (get ready for this)

 

                    The drunk staggers upright, wipes his eyes, coughs up a bit of water, catches his breath, and says to the preacher, "Are you sure this is where he fell in?

  GREETING POST 87 MEMBERS

SEPTEMBER is here and so it is cooling off and we have survived the heat of the summer. Now our thoughts will become more serious as the holidays will be upon us.

 During his life and ministry, Jesus taught that his message is accessible for all to use as a guide. Your connection with the spirit of truth serves as a resource of wisdom.
When you rely on divine guidance, you make wise, thoughtful decisions for yourself.
Like a trusted friend, you call upon your internal wellspring of God-given wisdom to help steer you through challenging situations.
You are at peace knowing that divine wisdom guides your decision-making. You have the clarity to choose what is best .
Let God’s love, charity, and wisdom guide you through your life.         Amen

Richard Moore, Chaplain

President,  Unit 87,  September 2018,  Newsletter  Article

 Well here it is September already; weather is finally cooling down after a REALLY hot and sometimes stormy summer. I look forward to seeing everyone back from their summer vacations during our first meeting after Convention. We were dark July and August so I am looking forward to seeing your smiling faces at our September meeting. Remember our general meetings are held the 2nd Saturday of the month at 10:00 a.m. at the Post. Please attend on September 8. We have some exciting projects to work on. Also, our first District 7 meeting for this membership year will be held at Post 14 (Kingman) at 11:00 a.m. If you have never attended a District meeting, on September 22nd in Kingman, now would be a good time since it is close by and you will find out what is happening from all the other Units in the District. It is very informative and fun.  We have elected new officers for the year and we are all excited to get working on the various Unit projects available and also to continue to support the Post. September 1 represents membership being open for the 2018-2019 membership year. You have the option of paying online and if you do, please let our membership chairman, Carole Shackleford, know. You can also call National at 1-317-569-4500 to let them know you want to pay your current dues by phone. Or you can continue to send your dues to our Membership Chairman. Dues this 2018-2019 year is $30.  The increase was caused by National raising their dues to us therefore causing us to raise our dues accordingly. If you have questions, contact Carole Shackleford. We are trying to meet our target goal of 65% paid by November 7, 2018, so please get those dues in. Also, we have vacant Officers positions available. We really need to fill these. If you are interested please contact me. Looks like I kind of rambled on for this first Newsletter, but it is important to get this information out to all our members. I am happy to be your President for this membership year. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at, 928-768-7926, or cargag@ctaz.com.

For God and Country,
