Daily Word I John 1:8 "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us."
Self-awareness is a gift of God’s grace. If you have ever seen someone who has no self-awareness you know it is a tragic picture. Sometimes that lack of self-awareness takes the direction of thinking too little of ourselves. If that is the case, we miss the opportunity to see what God wants to do through us.
Other times, lack of self-awareness causes us to think too highly of ourselves. We fail to see our shortcomings and sinfulness. The key is to realize that we, like all people, fall short of the glory of God; but God, through God’s grace can redeem our shortcomings, sins, and lives. Today might be a good day to take a long look in your spiritual mirror.

Imagine No Malaria
This year’s North Georgia’s Annual Conference 5K Race will benefit Imagine No Malaria. Over 650,000 people will die this year from a fully preventable and treatable disease. Our goal is to eliminate death and suffering from malaria on the African continent by the end of 2015. The race begins at 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday, June 17, on Washington Street near the Classic Center in Athens, GA. It follows a route through downtown and along the river, ending behind the Classic Center warehouses off Foundry Street.
Race coordinators: Stephen Streett, Mitchell Hollis and Dean Thompson. Register online at http://www.active.com/athens-ga/running/distance-running/run-for-god-north-ga-umc-conference-5k-2015.
June may seem a long way off, but it will be here before we know it. Therefore, mark your calendars for June 7-10 because Vacation Bible School at Varnell UMC will take place earlier than usual due to other scheduled activities. This year’s program is called Everest, a fun filled, action-packed adventure empowering kids to overcome obstacles with God's awesome power. Kids will discover how God has the power to provide, to comfort, to heal, to forgive, and to love us forever. Bible stories, recreation, and exciting science experiments will all create memorable worship experiences and help the children impact the world with God’s Word. This wonderful VBS has something to offer all children from pre-K through fifth grade, so we hope to fill our church with children those four days. Don’t miss the fun!
