Noon Meeting News – December 13, 2016 – Television Personality Jim Bucher

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father soon we will share the joy of food, fellowship and faith in celebrating Christmas. You have blessed us with the happy spirit of Optimism. Help us pass on that spirit by letting younger generation know, OH so many things, like love, respect, honesty and generosity. Help us educate them to be happy so when they grow up they will know the value of things, not the price. Most of all, impart to them that the nicest place to be is in someone’s thoughts, the safest place to be is in someone’s prayers and the very best place to be is in the hands of God. Amen!
