Jo...Public
Chapter one

Christianity

It is Jo... Public's wish to promote Christianity.


Isn't it just a wonderful thing to know that we are all held together in the love of God.

Isn't it wonderful to know that we can pray for the people we love to a listening God, & that our God will bless the people that we pray for.

Isn't it a wonderful thing to know that we will all one day come to live together in God's Heavenly place, in love & peace & Joy, & health & happiness.

Isn't it wonderful to know that Jesus loves us, each of us.

Doesn’t everybody know, even children, that the Bible is full of goodness.

Isn't Sunday school just the most wonderful, fun & healthy place for a child to go to.

Aren’t the words of Jesus, found in the Bible, just profound, & good, to think about, & to use as a guide to live a happy & healthy & blessed life by.

Recommended Christian Literature, includes:

'Journey into Life', by Norman Warren. : This leaflet introduces the non-Christian to : 'the sinners prayer', the prayer of asking Jesus to come into ones life, to be saved by Jesus, & to begin a relationship with Jesus. To become a Born-Again Christian.

The sinners prayer, the prayer of asking Jesus into ones life, to be saved by Jesus, & to receive eternal life in Jesus name:

Dear Jesus, please come into my life as my saviour to cleans me, my Lord to control me, & as my friend to be with me now & forever. Thank you for giving your life to me on the cross, & your resurrection to forgive me of my sin, & please help me to serve you in complete obedience from this day forward & for the rest of my life, so thank you God, & Christ Jesus, Amen.

'Right With God', by John Blanchard. : This book introduces the non-Christian, to Jesus, as if for the very first time.

'God's Word in My Mouth', by Colin Dye : Colin Dye is the senior Pastor of Kensington Temple, and the leader of the London City Church Network. Published by: Dovewell Publications, PO Box 9161, London, W3 6GS, England.

This is my own personal Testimony, of coming to have a personal relationship with : Christ Jesus :

I actually came to ask Jesus into my life, right on my thirtieth birthday.

I was in the darkest & loneliest place that i have ever been in my life. I was deeply depressed...

In the weeks before this event, i had happened on the book: Right With God, by John Blanchard. I have actually read this book twenty-two times. Well anyway, this book introduced me to Christ Jesus as if for the very first time. It revealed to me the sinners prayer, the prayer of asking Jesus into my life. So i made this prayer my own, & i declared this prayer to Jesus, right on my thirtieth birthday. This is the prayer:

Dear Jesus, please come into my life as my saviour, to cleanse me, as my lord to control me, & as my friend to be with me now & forever. Thank you for dying on the cross & coming back to life, to save me from my sin. Please help me to serve you in complete obedience from now on. Amen.

I understand, that if one prays this prayer with honesty, & a true desire to receive Jesus into ones life. Then Jesus promises to come into ones life to be with you, & never to leave you from this day onwards, so thank you Jesus & God, Amen.

This is the best day of my life because of this event.

Christian Aid

Christian Aid believes in strengthening people to find their own solutions to the problems they face. We do whatever is needed to support poor people and their communities, whether it’s speaking out against the causes of poverty or funding vital work on the ground.

The generosity of our supporters means we are currently able to support over 600 partner organisations around the world as the work towards ending the injustice of poverty.

Oxfam

‘Shoptalk’ is the magazine for Oxfam shop workers.

Every three seconds, a child dies unnecessarily as a result of extreme poverty. That’s 30,000 deaths everyday.

Make Poverty History

Four hours spent volunteering in an Oxfam shop will pay for enough vaccinations to immunise twelve children against six diseases or plant forty-two fruit trees in Africa. The time spent with Oxfam is definitely time well spent. It will renew your confidence, refresh your skills, provide valuable work experience and give you the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping poor people to change their lives.

Tel: +44 (0) 20 7215 0807

Director General: Dr David Williams

Wouldn't it be fantastic if we could hold a British National Space Centre, Seminar, here in Torquay, at the English Riviera International Conference Centre.

We could have a speaker from BNSC, telling us all about state of the art space activities here in Great Britain. We could hold these seminars annually. We could encourage the work of BNSC, locally & Nationally. Create more awareness & interest in space aviation etc.

Wouldn't it be exciting if Great Britain joined the world, in putting men into space, from a base here in Great Britain, maybe from a base in Exeter!.

Space aviation is expensive. How can we create more funds for space aviation here in Great Britain?

We need to create more Media coverage on space activities, globally & Nationally, so that the person in the street, catches the vision of space aviation etc.
