Central Revelations - July 2015

Happy Dependence Day!

Statue of Liberty
As the upcoming July 4th holiday once again approaches,  American patriotism comes to its annual high, with shouts of “Freedom!” resounding throughout the country, people proudly wielding and waving Old Glory, and celebrating that which was established so long ago: Independence … Freedom!

Luke 24
Written by Kim LaCoste   


“And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat? And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish and of an honeycomb. And he took it, and did eat before them.”                                                                                       Luke 24:41-43 (KJV)


The Books of Matthew, Mark and John don’t have this passage.  Luke was a doctor, so it only figures that he would have this detail.  Or, was it the Holy Spirit's way of answering a future child's questions, who might have asked, “When Jesus arose, was He hungry? What did He eat?”

Healthy, Plant Based & Affordable
Written by Jim Guy   


People are increasingly aware of the health benefits of a plant based diet.  They might not be aware that it's God's plan for our diets and for our good health - even restorative health (ie healing).  They have found that if you give it a chance a plant based style of diet is comforting, filling (but not a stuffed kind of full), it sticks to the ribs like nothing else, and the tastes are incredible.


There is a knock on a plant based diet that lingers, and that belief is the cost - they say that it's an expensive choice.  This past week I ran across a blog article I'd like to share with you.  Take a momment to meet Darshana Thacker who is chef and culinary project manager for Forks Over Knives.  She is a graduate of the Natural Gourmet Institute, and she’s known for her hearty and distinctly flavorful creations, which draw inspiration from a wide range of ethnic traditions.


It's That Time of Year - Time for VBS
Written by Jim Guy   


If it's July in St. Louis, it's Vacation Bible School at Central Church!  Our program starts Monday, July 13, and runs through Friday, July 17, nightly from 6:30 to 9:00pm. 


The theme this year is “Everest – Conquering Challenges with God's Mighty Power”.  The kids are going to make base camp on Mount Everest (conveniently located at 5 N Skinker Blvd.) where they will embark on an icy expedition of rock-solid Bible truths.  They'll meet Klymer the Snow Leopard, among other characters.  They’ll also consume snacks, make some friends, and have a great time.
