Psalm 137: 1-6 (NLT) 1 Beside the rivers of Babylon, we sat and wept as we thought of Jerusalem. 2 We put away our harps, hanging them on the branches of poplar trees. 3 For our captors demanded a song from us. Our tormentors insisted on a joyful hymn: “Sing us one of those songs of Jerusalem!” 4 But how can we sing the songs of the Lord while in a pagan land? 5 If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget how to play the harp. 6 May my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth if I fail to remember you, if I don’t make Jerusalem my greatest joy.

Peachtree Corners CBSI Challenge: To raise funds for 250 Lesson Books of the Gospel of Luke over this entire CBS year. Each booklet, which is printed in Zambia, is $4.00 each, so $20 would buy 5 booklets! These lessons in Luke will be used next year to train the leaders in the United Church of Zambia (the second largest denomination in Zambia). These trainings will impact thousands of Zambians to be in God's Word!!
