Ever heard of the “sin of the desert?” A preacher was in the Middle East and was trying to witness to his Arab guide. The Arab guide just was not interested in talking about Jesus. The preacher continued until the Arab became upset and said, “I don’t want to hear anymore.”
    Finally, the preacher succumbed and said, “I just want you to know that I am sharing Jesus Christ with you, because I love you and I want you to go to heaven.” The Arab didn’t say anything for a while.
    Finally the Arab said, “I’m sorry. I understand that you just didn’t want to commit the ‘sin of the desert.’”
The preacher looked a little puzzled and replied, “I’m not sure I know what that means, but it sounds pretty bad.”
    {mosimage}The Arab said, “The sin of the desert is to know where there is water, but not tell anyone else about it.”
    On Oct. 5, Green Springs Baptist Church is taking strategic steps to tell the people in our community where there is living water. We are having “My Friendship Connection” Sunday in which we are hoping every person in our church will invite and bring a friend to hear about the good news of the Bible.
    If you have not been invited, consider this a personal invitation to come and check it out. Jesus Christ is the living water (John 4:10) that can quench the thirst of any person, and He is the bread of life (John 6:35) that can quench the hunger of any person. Join us Oct. 5 to learn more.
    Green Springs offers a blended worship style with Bible-based, life application preaching at both 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. every Sunday, with childcare at both services.
    And, if you find that you’ve made a connection at our church or already have a connection somewhere else, we also invite you to join us for our annual Harvest Day Sale on Saturday, Oct. 11.
    This annual “in-gathering” brings old friends and new together for a fun day of fellowship featuring our famous barbecue and chicken salad plate sale, as well as a country store and auction. This fun event has been ongoing for years and is a much anticipated event in the Gray’s Creek community.
    If you’ve never attended the event, try to make the time to come out this year. In addition to great cooks, our church also has very talented individuals whose handcrafts will be on sale.
    Again, if you haven’t been invited, consider this your invitation.For more info, visit us online at www.greenspringsbaptistchurch.com or call (910) 425-8602.
