Rev. Matt Alspaugh will speak on “Résumé and Eulogy Virtues,” at the Sunday, October 10, service.
A few years ago, New York Times columnist David Brooks wrote a column in which he noted the difference between what he called “résumé virtues” and “eulogy virtues,” with résumé virtues being “the skills that you bring to the marketplace, while eulogy virtues are “the ones that are talked about at your funeral.” This concept, of résumé versus eulogy virtues, engendered a lot of conversation. It’s especially salient for those of us who are in our tercera edad (third age) of life, and we begin to evaluate what we’ve accomplished and what we still have to offer. We’ll explore some of these questions, and how they relate to our happiness and wellbeing.

Lake Chapala Baptist
Quoting from last Sunday’s sermon by Pastor John Linton: “Amos wasn’t politically correct. In fact, he was brutal in his goal to shock hearers into alertness. God, through Amos, uses poetry and song to enter into the prodigal, self-absorbed world and ruthlessly expose it.”
What was true during the godless times portrayed by the prophet Amos is true across the globe today. “...And when the Church starts to look like Sodom,” said Pastor John, “well, we’re in trouble. But no matter how wrong anybody gets it, God will be true to His word. And when evil abounds, so much more does grace abound.
“Brothers and sisters, let us be sure that our worship is pure. Let us come to God with a pure heart, and never reject the grace that God gives us.”
Share thoughtful weekly sermons, uplifting music, God-driven fellowship, and an ongoing thirst for true wisdom at Lake Chapala Baptist Church every Sunday, 10:45 a.m. Adult Sunday school 9:45 a.m., and Bible study groups Tuesdays, 10:30 a.m. Santa Margarita 147, Riberas del Pilar. Covid protocols are observed.

Abundant Life Church
What should a believer use as a method of understanding and preparing for the events of the day? Today there are a lot of things happening in the world and many well intentioned believers and even Bible teachers look at current events to discover if we are in a Biblical time of prophecy. Should the church be using current events and newspaper articles to determine her response? Is it possible to live ahead of the curve, knowing what is coming and be prepared for it before it happens instead of simply reacting? Sunday, October 10, learn God´s perspective and discover the way to be prepared rather than reacting.
English Sunday service is at 10 a.m., also at facebook.com/abundantlifechurchasembleasdeDiosMexico. Carretera Chapala-Joco 140 in San Antonio Tlayacapan, a block from Super Lake market.
