Reflections from John (con) 2
Salvation Army
On this side of Christmas, I celebrate God’s willingness to enter our
world. Yes, God is willing to enter
your world and mine, though at
times it feels as if that amounts to
nothing more than religious cliché
and sentiment. Even the committed and devout find themselves
wincing when face to face with
scrawled slogans and neon signs
broadcasting, “Jesus Saves!”
The angel was clear. Informing Joseph of things to come, the message was, “She (Mary) will bear a
son, and you are to name him Jesus,
for he will save his people from
their sins.” In a culture that took
names very seriously, believing that
sound and meaning would reflect
the significance of the child, it is
instructive to consider the meaning
of Yeshua, which we translate Jesus.
Literally, His name means, “The Lord
is salvation.”

And yet that is exactly why Jesus
entered, and continues to enter,
our world. He saves! His birth, His
life and teaching, His death, and
His Resurrection all have to do with
the fact that Jesus saves! Thoughtful persons have long recognized
that we human beings find ourselves overmatched by circumstances and find ourselves in need
of One bigger and better than ourselves, especially One able and willing to speak to God on our behalf.
The Christian Education Ministry is currently collecting personal stories from the
congregation of how Jesus has changed
their lives.
We would like these experiences/
thoughts written in the form of a devotional such as those found in the Upper
Room with a scripture, a devotion, and a
prayer. Please email your submissions to
[email protected] by January 22nd.
2012 poses yet another round of
political jousting, with combatants
pitching a case for their political
and economic solutions to the problems that beset us. It is an age-old
dilemma. Many of Jesus’ early followers were convinced He had come
to save Israel from their national
enemies and to establish a political
stronghold. The messenger from

Reflections from John
(continued from the front page)
on High informed Joseph of something qualitatively different, both
specific and profound. Beyond the
realm of politics and economics;
beyond the realm of physical health
and well-being, we find ourselves in
need of help regarding the root
problem of humanity. The Bible
calls it sin. And Jesus entered our
world to save us from this root
Please know that we all need the
Savior! Life poses those circumstances that truly overmatch us.
Rejoice that Jesus is willing to enter
our world today, just as He has. Be
wise to believe and receive what He
offers you today, tomorrow, and
forevermore, for it is nothing less
than life eternal, a quality of life
made possible by being filled with
God’s Spirit.
For sure, it has become passé to
talk about sin, even in the Church.
But one cannot read Holy Scripture
without discovering an understanding and appreciation of Jesus Christ
as One willing to do something so
far-reaching that we are challenged
to enter a whole new realm of
thought. Paul goes so far to say
that we are involved in a conflict
with, “the cosmic powers of this
present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil…,” helping us to
understand that Jesus is able to
equip us for such a battle both
within and without. Yes, He can
and He will save us.
Here at Plymouth: First we began
2012 with a Covenant Service in
which we committed ourselves to
our Lord and Savior. We prayed, “I
here, from the bottom of my heart
renounce them (idols) all, covenanting with You that no known sin shall
be allowed in my life.” We committed ourselves to serve our Savior in
holiness and righteousness. I am
confident that as we live in integrity
around those commitments, 2012
will be a great year and I shall be
praying for one and all.
We want to share our appreciation to everyone who donated their time, talents and monies to help support our 2011 Christmas Programs. We also want to share an update on
the status of our fundraising campaign and
holiday assistance given to those in need.
Our overall 2011 Christmas fundraising goal
is $315,000. We have received $305,000 or
96% of the goal to date. The fundraising
campaign will wrap up at the end of January
2012. Furthermore, $200,933 was collected
in the Red Kettles.
Our 2011 Thanksgiving Program allowed us
to assist 328 families which included 303 children for a total of 1,217 individuals. We were
blessed to have 19 volunteers give 28 hours
of their time to pack food boxes and another
40 volunteers give 155 hours of their time to
help distribute the food boxes over 2 days to
the families we assisted.
Our 2011 Christmas Toy Towne Program
assisted just over 500 families which included
1,033 children for a total of 1,807 individuals. It took 4 days to setup, prepare and
transform our gym into Toy Towne. 114 vol-
In His service,
unteers donated 331 hours to make this
tremendous task happen.
Our Toy Towne Distribution, which took
place over a 4 day period, had 239 volunteers donated 755 hours of their time and
efforts to ensure our clients experience a
brighter Christmas. Our volunteers processed and verified information, escorted
parents through Toy Towne assisting with
gift selections for their children, distributed
Christmas Dinner boxes and then carried it
all out to their vehicles.
We can not forget about the brave and
hearty individuals, who stood in the cold,
rain and the little bit of snow to ring the bells
during the Red Kettle Campaign. We are
blessed that many bell ringing volunteers
returned from last year to help out. We are
highly dependant on volunteer bell ringers to
collect funds enabling us to meet our kettle

2012 Daily Audio Bible - Invitation from Amy
One of my goals throughout my life
has been to read through the entire
Bible in a single calendar year. I
would be lying if I told you that I ever
made it very far. Now, don’t get me
wrong, I read the Bible regularly, am
involved in multiple Bible studies, and
review enough curriculum to stay immersed in God’s word. That said, I
have always wanted to read through
the bible in a calendar year. Really
wanted to but never did.
Currently the host, Brian Harden, is
reading from Genesis, Matthew,
Psalms, and Proverbs. He then provides commentary and prayer. The
last 15 minutes or so are prayer requests from the Daily Audio Bible community. (I only listen to those when I
have time.)
If you feel called, please join me on
this journey. You don’t have to go back
and catch up. Just jump in where we
are. You can do the first month in
Last year, a friend invited me to try
listening to the Daily Audio Bible podPodcasts can be downloaded on iTunes
casts. I was intrigued so I diligently
downloaded them for 2 weeks. I never or at If you
want to discuss the readings, you can

Thank you for hosting a
blood drive on Wednesday, December 28, 2011.
We cannot do this work
without great organizations like yours that have
caring, community-minded
leaders who embrace the
Red Cross mission.
It’s the blood on the shelf
that helps save lives. It
takes up to 48 hours after
your drive for blood to
become available to patients. We have a great
10 minute video at

ARM to ARM: The LifeSaving Journey that you
can watch and share.
Some Facts:
• Southeastern Michigan hospitals need
900 units every day
to meet their needs.
• Your group contributed 31 of the 900
united needed.
Every donation counts
and plays an important role in our community.
Each donation can
save up to three lives.
Your commitment to our

To start off the new year,
Sixty Plussers traveled
back in time to Jack
Paar’s Tonight Show
which hit the airwaves
July 29, 1957. The one
hour and 45 minute, fivedays a week program
continued until Paar left
to do other projects five
years later. Being a live
program (as most were in
the 50’s) no one knew
what might happen;
which is what made it all
so fun and intriguing.
The format that he introduced has remained the
same for all TV talk
shows today: a monologue, a desk and chairs/
sofa for guests and a
showcase for new entertainers. Did you know
that although he was
born in Canton, Ohio he
was raised in Jackson,
Michigan and got his first
radio job at the local station in Jackson? His hope
was to make it big in Detroit, but he traveled
somewhat farther than
that. Within weeks his
Tonight program became
the most talked about
show on TV and Michigan’s homegrown boy
became a household
name. Over the years his
guests included Presidents Kennedy and
Nixon, Robert Kennedy,
Fidel Castro, Randolph
Churchill, Billy Graham,
Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt
and just about anybody
who was anybody and a
few nobodys like Mrs.
Miller. It was an exciting
five years and it was fun
to revisit some of it.
Next month on Monday,
February 6th we are very
pleased to welcome back
Dr. Marcia into our
luncheon midst to teach
us more about the history
and fascinating workings
of the wonderful instrument she so beautifully
plays, the organ. And we
