Our next edition of “By the Book” – Tuesday, October 13 – will address what the Bible says about homosexuality.
Benjamin Lee and I will look at the history of the homosexual movement, how the rapid acceptance of homosexuality came to be, and what the Bible says about it.
I will warn everyone in advance that you might not like what you hear. I say that because so many people have already made up their minds about it. Do you know what the Bible says about homosexuality? Before you come to a firm conclusion, you at least need to give the Bible a hearing on it.
God has standards for mankind. The Bible expresses God’s standards for how we should live. God specifically addresses the issue of homosexuality in His word. You need to know the truth.
The study can be viewed online at dowlenroad.com. The date is Tuesday, October 13. The time is 7:00 PM (CDT).
For those in the Beaumont area who do not have an internet connection, the presentation will be shown on the big screen in our auditorium. Come and join us.

November 1 marks the fall time change. Daylight Savings Time comes to an end on that date. That means we set our clocks back an hour Saturday night, October 31.
Another time change also happens on November 1. The Dowlen Road church family will begin meeting for the Sunday evening service at 5:00 PM instead of 6:00 PM. There are a number of reasons for moving that service to 5:00 PM.
1. It will help seniors who have difficulty driving after dark. From mid-February through October it will still be daylight when we are dismissed from Sunday evening service. That will benefit those who cannot drive to evening services for much of the year.
2. It will help those who go to devotionals and other activities following Sunday night services. It will especially be beneficial to those who attend get-togethers in Mid-County, Orange or Sour Lake. The change will benefit young people who cannot presently go to some of those functions because it puts them home too late on school nights.
3. It will help parents who cannot spend time with other Christians after Sunday night services. It will benefit them by giving an extra hour to visit at someone’s home or at a restaurant–leaving plenty of time to get kids home who have school the next day.
Let’s mark our calendars for this two-fold time change on November 1.

Blessings to all.
