"I have only just a minute,
Only sixty seconds in it
Forced upon me, can’t refuse it,
Didn’t seek it,
Didn’t choose it
But it’s up to me to use it
I must suffer if I lose it
Give account if I abuse it
Just a tiny little minute
But eternity is in it!"
-Dr. Benjamin Mays

This little poem by Dr. Benjamin Mays has a critical message for us.  It is a powerful reminder to us of the value of time.  Time is one of our most valuable commodities.  Each day, each hour, each minute is a gift from God, and we are called to be stewards of that time.
When was the last time that you slowed down long enough to give some serious thought to how you choose to use your time? 
On Sunday as we continue the first portion of our series God’s Plans…Our Hands we are going to turn our attention toward the stewardship of the gift of the time God has given us.  Our stewardship is the expression of our faith as we manage our lives and resources for God’s purposes. It is the wise management of who we are and all that we have, including
our time.
Please remember to prayerfully consider the Time and Talent Survey that you were given during worship last week. Bring your completed survey with you as together we will offer them to God as an expression of dedication and commitment as we receive the Lord’s Supper. If you did not receive a survey, we will have some available for you to complete on Sunday
or you may click on the "Time and Talent Survey" link below where you will find the document is attached.

I hope you will take the time to join us in worship on Sunday.  I promise you it will be time
well spent!
