Valley News &amp; Views Page 5 January 17th, 2013 I noted last time that Christianity will move in two competing directions as this age draws to an end. The one is summed up best by the word "apostasy". II Thessalonians 2;3 speaks of this great "falling away" from the faith once delivered unto the saints (Jude 3). Some grow cold due to the abundance of iniquity in the end times. Some turn lukewarm (Revelation 3:15- 16). Others are deceived by false prophets who are led by seducing spirits while preaching doctrines of devils (Matthew 24:11, I Timothy 4:1). At the same time, the Bible says there will be a generation of Christians who love God, remain committed to His Word, and are full of the Holy Spirit. Far from growing cold, they are more like the prophets or apostles of old. They will endure to the end because they have embraced God's Promises as they look for a heavenly country where God is not ashamed to be called their God, and by eyes of faith they have seen Him who is invisible. This last days generation has purchased "gold tried in the fire" of the Holy Spirit They are clothed in righteousness and their eyes have been anointed to see what the Spirit is doing and where He is going. They do not succumb to religious deception because they "study to shew themselves approved unto God...rightly dividing the word of truth" (II Timothy 2:15). Therefore, they are not tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine. They embrace sound doctrine and reject those who turn the truth into fables (4:4). These believers are among the final Spirit-filled body spoken of by both Joel and Peter. '7kind it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh..." (Acts 2:17-18). by pastor leroy aufenkamp The suggested donation for senior meals for those age 60 and older will remain the same in 2013, $4.00 per meal. However, the full cost to provide the meal has increased to $7.50 per meal. Anyone under the age of 60 who eats as a guest at the senior meal program will be required to pay $7.50. The cost to provide the meal has increased for several reasons. The higher cost of food and supplies is one reason. Staffraises to remain a competitive employer is another reason. Another reason is that expenses that were previously allocated to the Outreach Program will now become part of the Senior Meal Program in 2013. Outreach has been phased out, but some of the duties such as Home Delivered Meal Assessments and home visits have been shifted to the Senior Meal Program. Outreach has been replaced with a new program called Aging and Disability Resource Link. Home visits in our region will be done by an Options Counselor from Grand Forks. This program is designed to help senior citizens with planning for future needs. Anyone who would like a visit with the Options Counselor can call our office and we will make the referral. Our Home Delivered Meal Manager (formerly Outreach Worker) Leah Austfjord will still be the person who does home visits to people requesting home delivered meals. We are still required to do an assessment to make sure that people qualify for home delivered meals. "Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't Mark Twain Senior Meals mind, it doesn't matter."

Pembina County Meals and Transportation - Call: 4,54..6586 Local Churches Invited to Join Change For Children Churches in Pembina, Walsh and neighboring counties have been invited to join a "Change for Children" campaign on Sundays February 3 and 10 to raise funds for the ingredients for 410,000 meals for the regional interdenominational "Feed My Starving Children" MobilePack Event. "We hope that area churches will take special collections of loose change on these two Sundays to help raise the $90,200 needed for the 2013 project," Regional Project Co-Chairs Jodie and Bruce Storhaug of Grand Forks said in announcing the effort. "Loose change may not sound like much of a challenge but when meals can be packed at a cost of 22 cents it means that a loose change collection of only $22 would pay for 100 meals," the co-chairs pointed out. The 410,000 meals will be packed by 1,800 volunteers working in 2-hour shifts April 5-7 in the Grand Forks Public Works Building. Around one-third of the volunteers are young people down to the age of five. Volunteers will be accepted online at www.! GreaterGrandForks after February 22. For more information, the Emall address is jstorhaug@ or phone 701- 780-9654. Donation checks may be made out to FMSC #1304-13 and mailed to 306 Circle Hills Dr., Grand Forks, ND 58201. Earl the Penguin's "Ask a Chicken" Continued From Page 1 loudly and turning in circles, but that didn't work either. Discouraged, he hiked off to the other side of the fairground and for several days could be seen leaning on the side of the "Talk of the Town Foot Long Corndog" vendor's trailer, staring across the midway to the arcade where Lil had set up her operation. His mind boiling with thought. Then, on the last day of the fair he put on his best James Cagney and waddled across the midway to Lil's booth and said, "just think what you could do with maybe, baby." Curious, and impressed by his bravado and his flippers, Lil clucked an encouraging cluck and Earl could see she was interested. He eagerly went on to explain that by adding a "Maybe" button she could vastly increase her earnings .... She became even more interested He told her that a maybe button would provide her clients with a hope or a discouragement that would create enough angst to make them want further clarification and move them to ask more questions This, as opposed to a clear cut yes or no that would settle the issue on the spot and require no clarification. Using the question "Does Frankie really like Glenda more than me?", as an example, he told her to imagine what might happen if she answered "maybe". He went on to say that instead of being left heartbroken or elated, the client would be filled with the desire for more information and might be moved to ask a second question, like, "is there any chance for me?" to which Lil could answer "maybe". He then continued with a potential line of questions that could follow like: "Will I ever know for sure?" "Yes." "Will you have an answer before the carnival leaves town?" "Maybe." "Should I come back tomorrow?" "Yes." "Instead of making a quarter off the client," Earl said with glee, "you'd make a buck twenty-five!" Lil loved the idea and they ran off together that evening. They enjoyed a great deal of success in the days that followed, but decided they might do even better if they could become syndicated and possibly even move their operation to the internet. That takes us to about right here. So why would we hire on such a questionable couple? Well, possibly to serve the public as a bad example. Also, I asked Lil if doing this column could actually have some social value and make a little more money for the paper and she answered "maybe." That was good enough for me, so I decided to go with it. We decided to begin this experiment by bringing in. ,Kelly, : owner, of Kelly's Country Market to pose the first question to Lil. Kelly was concerned on Tuesday about what sausage he should make for this week's Sausage of the Week. He was planning on his Smoked Cajun with Pepperjack Cheese, so he asked Lil, "do you think my Smoked Cajun will be a good seller this week?" Lil answered, "maybe." Kelly, a good businessman who likes straight forward answers was a little disappointed with Lil's reply, so a little too quickly maybe, he posed a second question, that demanded a straight forward answer, "should I make a little or a lot?" Lil gave him a straight forward answer, "yes." Kelly's face was getting a little red and he seemed ready to walk away from the whole thing, but being a good sport and realizing he had framed his question improperly, he tried again by simply asking, "should I make a lot?" Lil answered, "maybe." His patience almost gone, Kelly then asked, "should I make a little bit then?" Lil answered, "maybe." At that point, Kelly threw them both out of the store and that was the end of the experiment for the day. In the future, Earl will provide interpretation and commentary, following Lil's readings. This week however, he and Lil felt it would be safer for them to hide out behind the curling rink for a while. The word is they are pondering a "maybe not" button to add clarification for future readings. By the way, Kelly's Sausage of the Week is his Smoked Cajun with Pepperjack Cheese. It's always a good seller because it tastes so good. If you'd like a reading, send your question, well stated, to this newspaper via the postal system or e-mail.
