Choir Music
Capital City Baptist has cleaned out some closets and discovered we have a large quantity of choir music we would love to share with other churches. There are several Christmas cantatas that are ready to go for this year. Easter also! Please contact Pastor Ken at capitalcitybc@frontiernet.net or at 916-681-2551 if you are interested.

Misunderstanding

As a military officer, I was intrigued to come across an unusual tactic used in World War II.  During that war, the British Air Force once dropped a lot of books into enemy lines that contained instructions on “How To Fake Illnesses” with detailed step-by-step guide on how a soldier or a factory worker could fake illnesses to get sent home.  Once the Nazi command saw these booklets, they stopped believing soldiers and workers who claimed to have illness, and refused to send them home.  They thought they understood what was happening, but they didn’t.  And the result?  Not only did this damage morale, it also caused genuinely ill soldiers or workers to get sent back into combat and work, spreading real disease among their ranks.

As I read that, I thought of our enemy, who uses misunderstandings to cause suspicion, mistrust, and dissension among believers.  How many times have Christians been in conflict with one another simply because, rather than believing the best in each other, or going directly to someone when there is a concern, instead jump to conclusions based on the limited information?  This has resulted in untold hurt and damage in relationships, quenching the Spirit and hindering ministry.

God gives us a much better way to respond when there is something we don’t understand or don’t like.  A whole lot better than nursing hurt, harboring bitterness, and better than speaking against a brother.  It’s what 1 Corinthians 13:6 says, “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”  Out of genuine concern for another person, love will do everything it can to directly go to that person with a desire to work things out and to cover failings and sin.  God delights in that and blesses that.  May this be our response of love to one another!
