1) Mary's Song of Praise

Hello Sarah, 
Just wondering, I am leading our women's group on the 1st week of Advent in December and our subject is the Mary's Song of Praise in the Magnificat. Do you have any leadership materials or ideas on this? Any suggestions or materials to purchase would be very much appreciated.


--from SSTN: not specifically, but have you considered making a Chrismon tree during Advent? To learn more about chrismons, follow this link:


2) The Worker's 23rd Psalm 

The Lord is my boss, and I shall not want. 
He gives me peace, when chaos is all around me. 
He reminds me to pray, before I speak in anger. 
He restores my sanity. 
He guides my decisions that I might honor Him in all I do. 
Even though I face absurd amounts of e-mail, system failures, copier jams, back-ordered supplies, 
unrealistic deadlines, staff shortages, budget cutbacks, red tape, downsizing, 
gossiping co-workers and whining customers, 
I won't give up, for You are with me. 
Your presence, peace and power will see me through. 
You raise me up, even when the boss fails to promote me. 
You claim me as your own, even when the company threatens to let me go. 
Your loyalty and love are better than a bonus check. 
Your retirement plan beats any 401K, and when it's all said and done, 
I'll be working for you a whole lot longer!

3) On Judging Others

A young couple moved into a new neighborhood. The next morning while they were eating breakfast. The young woman saw her neighbor hanging the wash outside. 'That laundry is not very clean,' she said. 'She doesn't know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.'

Her husband looked on, but remained silent.

Every time her neighbor would hang her wash to dry, The young woman would make the same comments.

About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband, 'Look, she has learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this.'

The husband said, 'I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows.'

And so it is with life . . . what we see when watching others depends on the purity of the window through which we look.

4) Mission Idea, Song?

Hi, Iím a teacher in the local church. Can anyone help me with a mission item, since thereís a Mission Convention happening in our local church. Allocated time is 15 minutes and is there a Mission song out there for the Children to sing. Thank you. God bless.
