U.S. Grant was a failure in almost every endeavor except three.  He failed at farming and at a number of business ventures.  He was a remarkable horseman, and got accepted at West Point.  He graduated 21st out of a class of 39.  After serving in the army, he resigned under questionable circumstances.  Then he and his family devolved into poverty because of poor business decisions.  However, as a soldier in the Mexican American War and the Civil War he was brilliant!  Afterward he was elected as President twice.  Historians rate him as among the least effective Presidents.  However, when he was dying of throat cancer, he was worried about leaving his wife enough money.  So, Mark Twain offered to publish his memoirs.  The book proved to be one of the great autobiographies of all time, and in many ways shaped the character of American literature.

Grant had avoided inadequacy by finding what he was good at and running with it.  In my series on “Avoid What’s Scary” I’ll be preaching this Sunday on “Avoid Inadequacy” from Luke 16:1-15.  It’s undoubtedly the strangest parable that Jesus ever told.  We’ll talk about “Be Shrewd,” verses 1-9; and “Be Faithful,” verses 9-15.  Please come and learn with us.

Congratulations to Jason Kell for being commissioned as our Music Director and Tonja Cosma for being commissioned as our Assistant Youth Director.  We love these two and will support them with our prayers and cooperation.

With love in Christ,

Jim Meek
