FRANCIS, A DIFFERENT POPE: Church Requel a different church

The Good Life   The Good Life   The Good Life   The Good Life   The Good Life

YOUR PERSONAL GPS
You might reach your life's destination better if you remember that
IF A MAN DOES NOT KEEP PACE WITH HIS COMPANIONS, PERHAPS IT IS
BECAUSE HE HEARS A DIFFERENT DRUMMER.  LET HIM STEP TO THE
MUSIC HE HEARS, HOWEVER MEASURED AND FAR AWAY
Henry David Thoreau

DO NOT GO WHERE THE PATH MAY LEAD; GO INSTEAD WHERE
THERE IS NO PATH AND LEAVE A TRAIL 
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Catholic Church chose today a new leader of the 1.8 billion Catholics around the world.

Pope Francis I is the first pope from South America.  He is also the first Jesuit pope.



He has chosen a humble life.  He had elected not to live in the Cardinal Palace in Argentina, riding a bus to work and cooking his own meals.

Church Requel,  Mansfield, Ohio at "The Point of Grace" 
Prequel is a description of the way something will happen in the future, sequel is a repeat of something that has happened in the past.  Requel is a different way of doing something.  This beautiful church, whose pastor is my son Mark, does church a different way.

How are they different?  Trust me, they are different in many ways.  First of all, they do not take an offering.  Yes, they depend upon their members meeting their financial needs, but they do not pass an offering plate.

In the picture on the left the church is standing by to feed about 120 of the neighborhood needy.

The first ten percent of the churches income goes to the charitable needs of others--that my friend is different.

I THINK BEING DIFFERENT, GOING AGAINST THE GRAIN OF SOCIETY,
IS THE GREATEST THING IN THE WORLD - Elijah Wood

Church Requel changes lives.  Their motto of "A community loving God and loving people" is for real.  They are a "hands on" church with their church being the focal point of their lives.

Whether it is an exercise program, a women's bible study, a kid's game night or any one of many programs, it is a church for the people.  There is something at Church Requel for everyone.

TRUTH CAN BE STATED IN A THOUSAND DIFFERENT WAYS,
YET EACH ONE CAN BE TRUE - Swami Vivekananda

Like Saint Timothy, prayers ascended unto the heavens for Mark to be a pastor from both his Mother and Grandmother. Their prayers were answered.

A serious, devout Christian, Mark has always worked for the church from his teenage years onward.  Even before he was a teenager, he helped me arrange the room on Saturday for my Sunday School Class the next day.

I MAY BE NO BETTER BUT AT LEAST I'M DIFFERENT
Jean-Jacques Rousseau


SANTA COMING TO THE NEEDY FROM CHRCH REQUEL  
Whether it is passing out gifts to the needy at Christmas time,
or receiving encouragement and instructions on Sunday morning, you would like Church Requel.

You may sample the church from the comfort of your own home on the internet, blog, facebook, viemco, or listen to a pod cast.

If I lived in the area, I'd be a faithful member of Church Requel!
