The tenderness of love and the sensation of infatuation
The Centreville Seventh-day Adventist Church Youth Department will be sponsoring a special presentation entitled "Love and Infatuation . . . The tenderness of love and the sensation of infatuation" on Sabbath afternoon, June 2, 2018 at 6 p.m. at the church. The presentation will be given by Barrington Brennen, assistant to the president and marriage and family therapist and counseling psychologist. Barrington Brennen will seek to answer many questions and concerns about the difference between love and infatuation. Isn't infatuation something good? Are most people infatuated? Can love be real? Every teenager and parent should be there. Join us for this exciting event.

This article is dedicated to our mothers. On Mother's Day in May of each year millions of Christians in the western world will go to church on Saturday or Sunday to honor their mothers in special services and concerts. [ See dates around the world ]
Many will host family dinners, church, and community banquets. Countless sermons will be preached and many poems will be recited to express love and appreciation for mothers. The Adventist churches will have special services Sabbath morning in which a mother of the year for each church will be honored. In the afternoon, during the Youth Hour, there will be exciting programs featuring acrostics, songs, poems, drama to honor mothers. Sunday-keeping churches will be packed also. Children will honor their mothers with lots of music, inspirational messages, red or white flowers, and lots of hugs and kisses. We truly how love and appreciation for our mothers.
Mothers affect every aspect of our lives. From birth to the grave, our mother’s influence is special. Thus, we have created certain images of mother over the years of our lives as evoked in this poem: "Images of Mother."
There were four clergymen who were discussing the merits of the various translations of the Bible. One liked the King James Version best because of its simple beautiful English. Another liked theAmerican Revised Version best because it is more literal and comes nearer the original Hebrew and Greek.
Still another liked Moffatt's translation best because of its up to date vocabulary. The fourth minister was silent. When asked to express his opinion, he replied, "I like my mother's translation best."
The other three expressed surprise. They did no know that his mother had translated the Bible. "Yes, she did," he replied. She translated it into life, and it was the most convincing translation I ever saw."
Sometimes we think that Mom is invincible or a miracle worker. We credit so much strength to her. However, Mom does have limits. No matter how wise, creative, and loving she is, there are some things she still cannot do. Note this poem, written by a mother explaining a mother’s limitation. It is entitled "Reflections of a mother." Author Unknown
REFLECTIONS OF MOTHER
I found this poem to be true and tender. You can read it in your churches on Saturday or Sunday. It is written by Joe Bosch, is a Methodist living in the United States. It is entitled "Mother’s Day."
Remember, "Mom’s the Word."
