THOUGHTS FROM THE EDITOR
Jane S. Hancock
Our group here at the Word of Truth Ministry has been studying Philippians the last few weeks, using the Bible as our text along with Nathan Johnson’s notes, listening to Otis Q. Sellers’ tapes and reading his pamphlet “The Interpretation of Philippians 3:20.” We included the Resultant Version and Notes for Philippians 1 and 2 with our August Bulletin. This month you get Philippians 3 and 4 along with the pamphlet on Philippians 3:20. If you read all these, you will have much to think about.
Philippians is a message to those who lived during the Acts period and now find themselves living in the Dispensation of Grace, a time when there are no miracles, no speaking in different languages, no direct word from God. It is the time of the silence of God. Not at all unlike today. Those of us living in this century can find peace in the message. In this dispensation, Christ is not only all but Christ is enough.
You might be reading this in December but I am writing this on Thanksgiving Day, a day more about feasting and football than about giving thanks. We need to give thanks to God every day, not just one day. I am thankful that He has given me peace. No matter what life throws at me, I’m at peace because I have God, I have Jesus Christ, in my life.
Some personal thoughts and thanks.
Are you reading this? If you are, we would like to know. We hear from people who are supporting this ministry with monetary gifts, but we want to hear from you too. No need to send money. Just let us know via e-mail or snail mail. Just a short note. A brief greeting.
Of course, if you want to send a gift, that’s all right too. This is the time of year that many people think about gift giving and the Word of Truth Ministry (WOTM) can really use whatever you feel like giving. I’m sure you know that no one on the WOTM board of directors receives any salary for what we do. In fact we contribute as well. All the contributions go to publishing and distributing materials, and to pay the rent on our store-front office which houses our supplies and our equipment. A gracious “thanks” for the notes and gifts already received!
But bottom line, we do want to know that those of you who receive this do read it and we won’t know unless you tell us. Here is our contact information:

I wish I could report that David has written his column for this issue but I can’t. As I reported in the last bulletin, we miss him and are doing our best without him. He is in our prayers constantly.
