I love listening to movie soundtracks!  My favorite composer is Jerry Goldsmith.  He did two brilliant movies which combat prejudice.  They’re both in luminescent black and white.  One is Lilies of the Field which opens with the harmonica playing the Negro Spiritual, “Amen.”  The other is A Patch of Blue in which the theme has the trickling of piano keys evoking the stringing of beads that the blind character, Salina, uses to make money.  She is making necklaces in a park when she accidently turns over her tray that holds the unstrung beads.  She is frantically feeling around on the ground for the beads when a black business man stops by to help her.  He then helps her string her beads.  Eventually he discovers the horrors of her home life and he gets her into a school so that she can learn to function.  She experiences trepidation because she knows no one in the school, but the viewer’s heart is lifted when contemplating the fact that she can build a new life.  The movie is a real tear-jerker!

God wants us to build a new life.  It may seem scary at times, but it’s good to face new experiences.  Ask God to work through you to make changes in your life and the lives of others.  Sunday I’m preaching on “Face New Experiences” from 2 Corinthians 12:1-10.  Together we’ll 1) “Face Exaltation” (verses 1-6) and 2) “Face Humiliation” (verses 7-10).  This passage has the strange story of Paul being lifted into heaven, and it has some of my favorite verses in the Bible.  Please join us live at 10:30 on Sunday, or livestream through Facebook.  We’d also love for you to join us for Sunday School at 9:00 and our Business Meeting at 3:00.  Together we’ll face new experiences for the glory of God!

With love in Christ,

Jim Meek
