For the last two months at Edgerton Upper Elementary, students have been investing
some of their personal time outside of school creating posters that represented “Respect”
in March and “Fairness“ in April. It was set up as the Edgerton Art Prize for Character.
Since April was the month of “Fairness” all the students who took their personal time
to create a poster received a token prize. In May, the focus will be on “Citizenship” and
students will be doing something school wide in recognition of this. The students really
displayed some creativity in their artwork, mixing themes and colors.
The students represented in the picture created Fairness posters. They are standing next to some of the
pictures that represented Respect from the previous month. The students pictured are Elizebeth Fleet, Megan
Baird, Maria Curtis, Hannah Johnson, Michaela Weber, Jason Forbes, Jennifer Ludwig, Dylan Bowden, Elissa
Ashley, Emma Sickelsteel, Alexis Selelyo, Natalee Bradley, Tia Drilling, Melody Marcum, Anthony Souders,
Julian Abbott. (absent from picture is Elizabeth Draher).

What am I really supposed to think?


It is a strange, confusing, and terrifying world in which live. Natural
disasters have devastated lives and lands both far away and close to
home. We certainly hear of wars and rumors of wars. How do we set
our compass in this uncertain world? On the one hand, some say
that pretty much everyone will be won over by God’s love while an-
other supposed expert on Christianity says that Jesus is coming back
to judge the world this very May 21st! Mark the date! You can count
on it or so he says. What are we really to think?

nniversary Sale
A
Settling ourselves in our uncertain times cannot be found in fol-
lowing the latest fad or popular personality, but through the certain
hope of the Scriptures. Pastor Brian Humphreys will address many of
the controversies of our day from the Bible at First Baptist Church of

I recently was introduced to the idea of Viruses of the Mind by Wayne Dyer’s new book, “Excuses Begone”. In this book Dyer
helps us understand that we are all infected with these “viruses” in our thinking. These viruses, like physical viruses, will invade our Aug. 7 Rev. Steve Elizinga (Pathway CRC) Steve & Marie Elzinga

This work is based on the science of Memetics, a concept created by Richard Dawkins who wrote, “The Selfi sh Gene” in 1976. Aug. 21 Rev. Brian Bosscher (Hillcrest CRC) Marcia Kloote
Later Richard Brody, co-founder of Microsoft, wrote, “Virus of the Mind”. He used the word “meme” (rhymes with cream) to refer
to these viruses of our minds. He compared them to computer viruses. The subconscious mind, like the computer, cannot judge if Aug. 28 Pastor Bill Vis (Pine Grove) Don Edema

I do recommend you read this book. But I will share those 18 memes with you now, along with his affirmation (bold type) that during Morning Worship

than I need. Summer Concert Series at 6:00 P.M.
3. It will take a long time. I have infinite patience when it comes to fulfilling my destiny. I will do what ever it takes for as long as May 29 – Marty Miller
it takes. July 3 – Doug Anderson
4. There will be family drama. I would rather be loathed for who I am, than for who I am not. I have July 24 – Hark Up Girls
loving support from those that care. August 14 – Jim Worthing
5. I do not deserve it. I am a Divine creation, a piece of God. Therefore, I cannot be undeserving. I am
OK. I deserve a wonderful life. September 4 – John Shear
6. It is not my nature. My essential nature is perfect and faultless. It is to this nature that I return. I am
learning to overcome any genetic conditions and old learned programming.
7. I can not afford it. I am connected to unlimited sources of abundance. I have always had and always
will have plenty. How can I afford this?
Next week we will continue with more of these memes. For now when you find a meme that applies
to you, read the healing affirmation or create your own. Then every single time you hear the old meme in
your mind or from you mouth, cancel it, and plug in the new one. Within a short time you will be thinking
and responding in a different way and life will be getting better. (To be continued next week)
