Pastoral Perspectives; The PR wing of the Marine Corp of the United States of America advertise for volunteers with the catch phrase--' The Few, The Proud, The Marines.' The rigors of becoming a marine in the U.S. military is difficult to say the least. Maybe that is why by comparison there are few who volunteer and fewer who make it. That level of training is necessary when you are often the first in and last out on a military campaign. Teamwork and training are essential for success. The media surrounding serving as a marine today seems to be just the opposite of what armies throughout history have relied upon.

As we are seeing/sharing in our small group fundamentals of faith class, the body of Christ only functions properly when ALL the members are first placed and then present with respect to their God designed purpose. Service survey sheets are available weekly for the next few

Pastoral Perspectives; Vision is critical for accomplishing certain tasks in life. Have you ever known anyone who attempted to thread a needle without clear vision? Even with corrective lens, this small task can be a real challenge, if not potentially dangerous. Human beings spend millions annually to be able to see more clearly. For some the adjustment will only be slight and for others the adjustment will be extreme. There are times when poor vision is the result of injury but most of the time, unclear vision more often occurs with time. As we age, many if not most tend to need some corrective lens to help them see life more clearly. I'm thankful for those who specialize in correcting
