“Hi, my name is Rev. Justus Mutuku, and I will be sharing with you during this Spiritual Emphasis Week.”
“We have a manual for life that was given to us by God, which is the Bible.” – Rev. Justus Mutuku.
Rev. Justus Mutuku uses a raincoat as an example of how tailors have designs in their minds, that even without us telling them how we want something to look, they come up with an idea and they give us something we can work with. God had an idea and designed a manual, the Bible, which we are supposed to use every day.
“…but sometimes we fail when we do not button the raincoat well. We want to button up quickly and get done with it. We alter the design, so it looks awkwardly off. This applies also to the Bible. We do not want to use God’s manual, which has every single detail about how we should live everyday.” – Rev. Justus Mutuku.
When we look through different lenses, we see the world differently.

Sue Ruggles holds the hand of a very nervous patient before surgery.
Elaine and Kristan swap war stories before his surgery. Turns out, when Elaine was a kid, she fell out of the same kind of tree that broke Kristan’s elbow, so she could feel his pain!
Dr. Ruggles is back in town for a while and wasted no time making his way to the operating room.
Dr. Jun gave Steve instructions on how to have mom and dad stretch his foot each day in order to stay clubfoot free! Just in case he didn’t catch it all, Dr. Jun gave his mom instructions, too!
