Sunday Message Notes

Quick notes from Pastor Mark's talk this morning:
- intro to series Scrooge Comes to Grace - Christmas series
- opened with a scene from The Muppet Christmas Carol, talking about Scrooge
- Affluenza - I Tim 6:17-18
- the lie - your plasma is not big enough, you passport is not stamped enough, etc.
- Heb 13:5 - be satisfied
- The average American family has 13 credit cards
- Marshmallow study by Walter Mischel - idea of delayed gratification
- "I remember reading once of a spiritual seeker who interrupted a busy life to spend a few days in a monastery. 'I hope your stay is a blessed one,' said the monk who showed the visitor to his cell. 'If you need anything, let us know, and we’ll teach you how to live without it.'" - Philip Yancy, Christianity Today, March 2006 p. 112
- Prov 11:25

Gotta go - we are having our neighborhood Progressive Dinner party in about an hour.
