Pumpkin
A lady had recently been baptized. When she went to work, one of her coworkers
asked her what it was like to be a Christian. She was caught off guard and didn’t
really know how to answer, but when she looked up, she saw a jack-o-lantern on
the desk and answered, “Well, it’s a lot like being a pumpkin.” The worker asked
her to explain that one. “Well, God picks you from the patch and brings you in
and washes off the dirt on the outside. Then God removes all the yucky stuff from the
inside. He removes all those seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc. You feel really great. He
carves you a new smiling face and then, He puts His Light inside you to shine for all to
see.”
We received the following note from MaryAnn Gooding who moved to Medicine Hat midSeptember: “My new email address is [email protected] Thinking of you and missing
the fellowship and familiar faces! Have a great day and God bless you all for your
fellowship and kindness over the years and before I left. I am doing fine here and know that
God is with me as I establish a new life in Medicine Hat. In Christian love, MaryAnn”
MaryAnn’s new mailing address is: 32-200-13 SE, Medicine Hat, AB T1A 3P9.
ON THE LIGHTER SIDE:
One Halloween a trick-or-treater came to my door dressed as “Rocky” in boxing gloves and
satin shorts. Soon after I gave him some goodies, he returned for more. “Aren’t you the
same “Rocky” who left my doorstep several minutes ago?” I asked. “Yes”, he replied, but
now I’m the sequel. I’ll be back three more times tonight too.”

Saturday, October 25th.
