So do not fear, for I am with  you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand . Isaiah 41:10
 
As we look at our Sunday bulletin and see our ever lengthening list of people who are ill or in need and also as we look at the concerns for our community and country, we see an ever increasing need for prayer. Therefore, we ask each of you to increase your prayers in this time of need. 
 
Have you ever noticed the beautiful flower arrangements on the altar during our services? These are just another example of God’s beauty and love. Each month, these are provided by congregation members in honor or in memory of loved ones. If this is something you would be interested in, look for the flower signup sheet in the Narthex or contact any altar committee member for details. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and helping to make our services even more beautiful. 
 
Thank you,   The Altar Committee

Crop Comments
 
Even if you are not in the business of farming or ranching check out some of the latest crop comments from Agweb (May 2019).  De Kalb, IL: “Our county continues to get rain, little or no field work has been done.  Looks like another week of delays.”   
Henry County, OH: “Typical day for April 13.  Rain and 47 degrees along with nothing planted.  O wait, the calendar says May 13.”  Coles County, IL: “Cold, soggy, and rain every three days.  Looks like USA might be headed for food shortage if we do not get to plant soon.”  And finally, Fayette County, IL: “Very little field work done.  Low prices, higher costs, higher interest rates, more rain in the forecast.  Not a good combination. USDA reports are bogus.” 
 
Nothing like a little doom and gloom, wouldn’t you say?  The fact is, we just never know what the future will bring.  There have been a lot of natural disasters this spring in the heartland and elsewhere — mostly flooding.  It’s tempting to be so bold as to ask where God is in the midst of the disaster.  We can become lost in the tragedies. 
 
I have not run away from being your shepherd; you know I have not desired the day of despair.  What passes my lips is before you…  You are my refuge in the day of trouble.  Jeremiah 17:16-17 
 
As we face the trials and tragedies of life it’s hard to believe “someone” is not behind them.  Scripture says that God does not desire the day of despair.  So now what?  Well, take refuge in the Lord your shepherd when disaster strikes. 
 
For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foes.   Psalm 61:3 
 
I don’t know if you are in a storm right now, but many around us certainly are — even in our own church.  And we all know about the storms — be they weather related, sickness, or the death of a loved one.  Be encouraged that we do not have to face them alone.  Jesus did not run from being our Shepherd.  When Jesus saw the large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd.   Mark 6:34  
 
And here it comes sports fans: For the lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water.  And God will wipe away every tear from their eye.  Revelation 7:17
