Read Luke 22:31-34The disciple Peter was a man of great faith and boldaction. But as readers of the New Testament know, hisbrash style sometimes led him to make humiliatingmistakes. More than once, this disciple had to wear thelabel of "miserable failure" rather than that of "obedient servant."We can all relate when it comes to falling short of expectations. Obedience to God is a learning process,and failure is a part of our development as humble servants. When we yield to temptation or rebel againstGod's authority, we realize that sin has few rewards, and even those are fleeting.Failure is an excellent learning tool, as Peter could certainly attest. Through trial and error, he dis-covered that humility is required of believers (John 13:5-14); that God's ways are higher than the world'sways (Mark 8:33); and that one should never take his eyes off Jesus (Matt. 14:30). He took each of thoselessons to heart and thereby grew stronger in his faith. Isn't that Romans 8:28 in action? God causedPeter's failures to be put to good use as training material because the disciple was eager to mature andserve.God doesn't reward rebellion or wrongdoing. However, by His grace, He blesses those who choose re-pentance and embrace chastisement as a tool for growth.We would probably all prefer to grow in our faith without ever making a mistake before God's eyes,but we cannot deny that missteps are instructive. Failure teaches believers that it is much wiser andmore profitable to be obedient to the Lord. That's a lesson we all should take to heart.
Learning From Failure

Paul Lloyd will be the guestspeaker on Sunday, July 29 at 9:30a.m. at the Belvidere CommunityChurch and at 11:00 a.m. at theKadoka Presbyterian Church.Paul, orginally from Alabama, isthe associate pastor at the SouthCanyon Baptist Church in RapidCity. He and his wife, Lynn, havetwo teenage daughters, Summerlinand Emily.Paul provides leadership withthe senior pastor and specializes inthe areas of Pastoral Care and Dis-cipleship. The South Canyon Bap-tist Church is one of the largestevangelical churches in Rapid Cityand located on the west side of town.Everyone is cordially invited tocome and listen to Paul Lloyd onSunday, July 29.It wasn’t too long ago I had totell a sixty-something woman thather breast biopsy showed cancercells. I explained what the nextsteps would be and that soon Iwould arrange for her to see abreast cancer specialist. I remem-ber looking up from the chart intoher eyes and seeing a strangeglassy stare. She had that “Whatdo I do now?” look.More than ten million Ameri-cans are cancer survivors, but thatnumber doesn’t seem to help muchwhen you are the patient, somedoctor is speaking, and the word“cancer” comes up. In discussionslike this, I’ve learned from experi-ence that after the word “cancer”,all other words and advice arelikely lost, and another visit for op-tions in a day or two is needed.Then it is my job to make availableto her the very best treatment, andto help her believe in it.Yesterday I asked a 95 year-oldpatient and friend of mine who isa breast cancer survivor how it allhappened. She described abouttwenty years earlier discovering amarble sized hard lump in herbreast, being referred to the sur-geon who, in 1989, gave her op-tions of treatment. The patientthen chose to have a simple mas-tectomy. She said, “I didn’t get ex-cited, I just trusted the doctor. Hetold me we don’t play around withthis stuff, and I believed him.”This wise woman went on to tellme about her relative who also hada breast lump, was afraid, didn’tget help, and didn’t live a year.“Better to just think of it like get-ting a new hip. Get it taken careof, and get on with life.” She said.Trust is the key ingredient tothis story of cancer. First, thephysician must truly deliver thevery best treatment options avail-able anywhere… and then the pa-tient must believe that is true.Like my 95 year-old patient said,“I just trusted the doctor.”Take home message:Caring for cancer patients re-quires a physician to know how tocommunicate well;When caring for any patientphysicians must promise to deliverthe best treatment options avail-able anywhere;Successful treatment depends onthe patient trusting that the physi-cian is delivering on that promise.

Sneaking Vegetables intoFamily Meals
Encouraging children andadults to eat more vegetablesmakes sense since they are low-calorie, high fiber and nutrient-rich foods. People who eatgenerous amounts of vegetables aspart of a healthy diet can reducetheir risk of chronic diseases suchas type 2 diabetes, stroke andsome types of cancers.Children ages 2 to 3 years oldneed 1 cup of vegetables daily, 4 to8 year olds should get 1 to 1-1/2cups and 9 to 13 year olds need 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 cups. Teens and adultsneed 2-1/2 to 3 cups daily. Theseamounts are for individuals get-ting less than 30 minutes of phys-ical activity per day. As youincrease your physical activity, youcan eat more and stay within yourcalorie budget. Regular physicalactivity is important for your over-all health and fitness.Eating a variety of vegetables isas important as quantity. No sin-gle vegetable provides all the nu-trients you need to be healthy.Include vegetables throughoutyour day for snacks, side dishes orin your main meal. All vegetables(including beans) count towardyour daily recommended amount,whether they’re fresh, frozen, orcanned.Think color. Eating vegetables of different colors such as blackbeans, green spinach, and orangesweet potatoes give your body awide range of nutrients such asfiber, folate, and vitamin A, just toname a few. As you know, just because wetell kids that vegetables are goodfor them, doesn’t mean that they’llwant to eat more of them. Try a va-riety of serving strategies tobroaden your family’s comfort zonefor eating vegetables. One strategymay be to hide vegetables in foodsyour family is willing to eat. Tryadding vegetable toppings likebroccoli and spinach to pizza. Stirpeas and corn into a casserole ormix shredded zucchini into meat-loaf or muffins. Have family mem-bers help prepare skewers of vegetables such as tomatoes,mushrooms and green peppers forkabobs, as part of a barbequemeal.MyPlate (http://www.choosemy-plate.gov/) developed by the USDA supports the idea of increasingvegetable and fruit consumptionby suggesting that we fill half ourplate with colorful fruit and veg-etables at every meal.

Peterson Me-morial Hospital in Philip.Walter Harlan Van Tassel wasborn February 16, 1924, in Ot-tumwa, Iowa, to Walter E. andRuth Van Tassel. Walter (“Junior”to many) moved to the Midlandarea in 1929 where he lived withhis grandparents, William andPearl Lee, on the 1912 homesteadranch north of Ottumwa and wasraised like brothers and sister withhis aunt, Fern (Lee) Konst, and hisuncle, Bill Lee.Walter was educated at the Mat-tison Country School where hegraduated the eighth grade.Walter continued to farm andranch with the Lees and becamevery mechanically inclined, work-ing on the farm equipment, keep-ing it moving during the war years(baling wire and a good set of plierswill fix anything).In 1951, a custom farming crewfrom Nebraska made its way intothe Ottumwa (S.D.) area. JoannWalker, who was driving truck forher parents, was invited to a birth-day party for Bill Lee, where shemet Walter. There were severaltrips to Nebraska over the nextyear that culminated in their mar-riage in 1952. Walter continued towork the ranch with the Lee’s andstarted his family.

It was during this periodthat Walter got to meet and shakehands with former president,Jimmy Carter. All who knew Walter had nodoubt of his honesty and workethic. Seldom was work being donethat he was not involved in. He en- joyed talking with people who cameto visit or have grain cleaned. If you were around him for anyamount of time, you got the benefitof his story telling and his ever-pre-sent big smile and a sparkle in hiseyes. He also enjoyed working onall machinery, from the simplest tothe most complex, and could get just about anything back up andrunning. Unfortunately, he nevergot around to building his “flyingmachine” but got to fly in an air-plane with son Jim and finally gotto ride in a helicopter last summer.One of his favorite pastimes wasfishing.
