Good morning, this is Topher from Washington Church of Christ, bring you a message minute.

I have a cold and paper towel, it is the bane for my nose.  You know that feeling.  Your cold is in full steam.  You nose is running faster than Usain Bolt.  Your raw skin is redder than Santa's cheeks.  Then the dastardly event happens.  It can strike anywhere; maybe while you're riding in a car, in a meeting at work, or in the hallway at school.  You kindly ask for that precious commodity of facial tissue, hopefully even one of those name brands like Kleenex with aloe, and someone hands you the dreaded paper towel.  They may even be trying to help, but you resent them as you have no choice but to rip your face off with this rough substitute for soothing nasal salvation.   

You may laugh at my description, but I think it's similar to what is happening in the world today.

The world around us is suffering.  Some are being battered and beaten by falsehoods, fake news, and self-serving ideologies that plague our culture.  Some are red and raw from the daily grind of balancing work, family, study, health, and spirituality.  People are struggling.  In your face-to-face and Facebook interactions, are you the Kleenex with aloe or the barbaric paper towel?  Titus 3:2 says we are, "To speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people."  Look at yourself and grade which type of facial wipe you are.  Then choose to bring soothing relief today.  You'll be glad you did.

P.S. - I'm hosting a blood drive through the Indiana Blood Center at Washington Church of Christ on Sunday afternoon, Feb 26th, from Noon to 4pm.  Sign up to reserve a time to give! (I'm bringing Fudge Rounds and Mountain Dew for snacks!)  Go to to sign up!
