Dear Friends,
We have a new church website.  Check it out.  www.nampaumc.org
We have worked with a great guy who is very skilled in web design, Cody Karst.  Early on, he sent me a possible home page to review that included several quotes on a loop to give people a feel for what your church values.  The “stock” quotes he sent were quite good and I almost just told him to use those, but then I thought that maybe it would be worthwhile to give this some more thought.  Here are the seven new ones I came up with:
Beware you not be swallowed up in books!  An ounce of love is worth a pound of knowledge.
John Wesley
 
Do not ask God to guide your footsteps if you’re not willing to move your feet.
Sean Patrick Flanery
 
Success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.
Winston Churchill
 
It is well to remember that the entire universe, with one trifling exception is composed of others.
John Andrew Holmes
 
God does not want something from us.  He simply wants us.
C.S. Lewis
 
I only love God as much as I love the person I love least.
Dorothy Day
 
Make each day your masterpiece.
John Wooden
I got the last one from a good friend I have never met.  Woody Woodburn runs every day, as I once did.  We got in touch through the “United States Running Streak Association.”  He wrote a great book on his friendship with Coach Wooden (Wooden and Me) which is where I found this quote.
It’s a good way to start each day, as the new day lies before us as a blank canvas.  It’s a good way to start this day:
Make each day your masterpiece.
In Christ,
John
