Rev. E. Anderson
Psalm 15: 1-5
What qualities should every leader possess? Psalm 15 furnishes us with a list of many of the necessary traits.
David describes a righteous man who walks in integrity and gains not only the respect of others, but also an audience with God – Psalm 15; 1, 2. He demonstrates why predetermined values and ethics, not expediency, must drive our leadership. How does David picture a godly leader? The leader . . . .
- Possesses integrity – v2
- Does what is right – v2
- Is honest and trustworthy – v2
- Does not gossip – v3
- Does not listen to gossip - v3
- Does no harm to others – v3
- Speaks out against wrong – v4
- Honours others who walk in truth – v4
- Keeps his word even when it costs – v4
- Isn’t greedy to gain at the expense of others – v5
- Takes no bribes against anyone – v5
- Is strong and stable – v5

CHURCH SERVICE MOVES MOYLES
Quick-tempered Radio One DJ Chris Moyle’s has been blown away by church services he never knew existed.
Yorkshire-born Moyles admitted that watching an evangelistic service on TV as be lay in bed had a profound effect on him.
The 35-year-old spoke for almost six minutes on his Radio 1 breakfast show about how he felt while watching a service broadcast from KingsGate Community Church, Peterborough. On BBC1 on Pentecost Sunday.
Moyles, the self-styled savior of Radio 1, said, “I woke up, turned on TV and watched this Pentecostal service. It was so happy, so incredibly uplifting. There were people being baptized and it was like those American gospel services . . . . but this was England!
“It was one of the most fantastic things I’ve seen in years. Everybody was singing about Jesus, holding their hands in the air and whooping in celebration. I can honestly say I have never seen anything like it. Everybody knew the words and were having an amazing time.
“They were singing about how in Jesus you can move mountains. Amazing. I was lying in bed watching this . . . I was left thinking, come on, let’s all go and get baptized”.

Rev. L. Goodwin
Too many churchgoers are singing ‘Standing on the Promises’ when all they are doing is sitting on the premises
Some people complain because God put thorns on roses, while others praise Him for putting roses among thorns
The cure of crime is not the electric chair, but in the high chair
The bridge you burn may be the one you later have to cross
The measure of a man is not how great his faith is but how great his love is
Real friends are those who, when you’ve made a fool of yourself, don’t feel you’ve done a permanent job
Be careful your marriage doesn’t become a duel instead of a duet
The mighty oak was once a little nut that stood its ground
