    We have a member in church named Polly Esther.  Married name, and she said had she known 50 years ago (before the invention of polyester) that her name would become a cheap synthetic fabric she might not have married Mr. Esther!

    Thank you Pastor Markle for those scripture cards I bought from your online store.  They have been a great blessing to me during this crisis.  I have been carrying them with me since the tragedy and they have been a comfort to me.

    Anniversary of William Tyndale Execution
    October 06, 2015
    William Tyndale and The English Bible
    If you read the Bible in English, you owe a debt of gratitude to William Tyndale. Today marks the anniversary of Tyndale’s execution at the stake for the “crime” of translating the Bible into English:
    The “father of the English Bible” was apparently born in a hamlet near the Welsh border about 1490. He arrived at Oxford with a gift for languages and began studying the writings of the greatest linguist in the world, Erasmus. He poured over Erasmus’ Greek New Testament and other writings, and he soon began lecturing from them. The Bible was still virtually unavailable in English, and an idea formed in William Tyndale’s mind.
    He began proclaiming the value of pure Scripture and of the need to translate it. He was threatened and opposed. “We are better to be without God’s laws than the pope’s,” one man said, voice rising. Tyndale’s reply is among the most famous in church history: “If God spares me, ere many years I will cause a boy that drives the plow to know more of the Scriptures than you do.”
    He approached the Bishop of London for help in rendering the Bible into English, but was rebuffed. Tyndale nevertheless began working on his project. Finding his life in danger, he fled to the Continent. There he continued translating, smuggling copies of Matthew and Mark back into London. Spies combed Europe for him, and Tyndale played a cloak and dagger game, hiding and running, translating and smuggling. By 1525 complete copies of the New Testament were being secretly read in England.
    On May 21, 1535 Tyndale was betrayed and seized. He languished in a miserable prison cell. His witness there converted the jailer and his family. On October 6, 1536 he was tied to the stake outside of Brussels, strangled, and burned. He was 42.

    Tyndale’s final words were, “Lord, open the King of England’s eyes.” That prayer had already been answered, for King Henry VIII had approved of a new English Bible by Miles Coverdale, Tyndale’s friend. Henry never realized that Coverdale’s Bible was nearly 70 percent Tyndale’s work. In 1604 James I approved a new translation of the Bible into English, and Tyndale’s work became the basis of 90 percent of the King James Version.

    First day back to work since the tragedy.  It was a very hard day.  It appears a decision has been made to completely level the building that it occurred in.  No one will ever have a class in that building or the spot of the classroom again.

    Please be in prayer for me concerning my deep hurt over the fact that not a single solitary member of my family has reached out to me in any way to see if I am among the dead or injured.  They all know without a doubt that I am a full time student and staff member at UCC.  I didn't really understand the depth of their distancing themselves from me and my God till now, and it is bothering me more than I expected.

    He was born in England, but moved to California when very young.  There is more indication that his "spirituality" he described himself as is more "pagan or mysticism" than anything else.  He had books in his apartment from a horrible shop here in Roseburg called Mystic Earth; and since his final comment was that "he was looking forward to hell and that Satan was going to embrace him". Zero evidence that he was Muslim in any way.  He inexplicably handed a box to one of the survivors saying please make sure the police get this.  Not a peep about the contents of that box yet.  He was mixed race, and did recently have activity on a "black lives matter" website that encourages violence against "whites and police officers", but he had documentaries on Sandy Hook and Columbine in his apartment as well and lots of IRA sympathizer material.  A complicated individual it seems.

    Sorry about it taking so long to give you all an update from someone on the scene.  Most of this I believe is public knowledge even outside of our community but I am not sure what is getting sent out nationally.
    First the grim details:
    1.  Yes the shooter, who I refuse to mention his name, not only was a current student at UCC but was even enrolled in the class he murdered.
    2.  There are multiple gofundme funds set up for the various victims both deceased and those still in hospitals (some still in critical condition).  At this point, if you wish to contribute to help this community, I recommend the general fund started by one of our state representatives and coordinated with our local United Way at https://www.gofundme.com/nm5g3hug.  Needless to say, there is well over $650,000 raised for the hero of the day Chris Mintz, so please try to help the many others killed or wounded by this madman and his "hate crime" against Christians.  (something the media refuses to say)
    3.  Roseburg is a small logging community barely hanging on and trying to find a new identity after the near destruction of the logging industry by environmentalists. We are NOT what this guy did by any stretch of the imagination.  To give you an idea of our small town rural mindset, city ordinance requires that no building be taller than the trees around it, therefore our tallest skyscraper is 3 stories.
    4.  Please pray for the school as well as the students.  Feedback so far from students indicate most will be unwilling to ever attend classes in Snyder Hall again, and certainly NOT the classroom where the murders happened.  That will be a major blow to our small community college who is still reeling from a 46% reduction in our state and federal funding.
    On a separate note:  If you are involved in any learning institution ESPECIALLY Christian education, please have "shooter on campus" procedures and drills as soon as humanly possible!   Having gone through this as both a full time student and part time staff at UCC and on campus as this happened, I have plenty of recommendations for what worked well, and for what needs to be adjusted, so feel free to private message me here.

    My College UCC Roseburg, OR
    I am a student at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, OR and I also work there.  I was in class today, but on the opposite end of campus from the shooting.  Please pray for our community.  Also, please don't believe everything you are hearing on the various news channels, some of what I have heard is ridiculous and I and anyone who knows the campus and area at all, know can't be true.  Your prayers for the families who have lost their loved ones, and also our community are greatly appreciated.

    There is also a huge difference between voluntarily providing the needs a of person or group of persons, and socialism which is forced contribution with no option to opt out.

    He did not qualify the statement, but since this is a "debate participation" class every Friday, I guarantee you I will corner him on it.

    The parable of the talents in Matthew 25 certainly doesn't sound very much like socialism to me.  
    Also the 10 commandments state 
    Exodus 20:15 (KJV)
    15  Thou shalt not steal. 
    Note the period after the word steal.  This commandment does not read "Thou shalt not steal, unless the other guy has more than you do", or "You shalt not steal unless you are absolutely positive you can spend it better than the person who earned it".  It also doesn't mean "Thou shalt not steal, but it is okay to hire someone else, like a politician, to do it for you.
    Then in the 10th commandment God eliminates the primary motive for stealing in the first place.
    Exodus 20:17 (KJV)
    17  Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's. 
    God basically says, if it isn't yours keep your fingers off of it.

    I'm going to have fun in this class
    Day one of classes was today at my college, and boy did it start out with a bang!  The biggest bang coming from my Economy 201 Micro-economics (institution/firm or family economics) professor.  The professor started lecture by giving us our term paper subjects or people to write about, due at the end of the term.  He started listing major influential economists of history going back to ancient times, and those still alive today that we could base our thesis on.  Then he made a profound statement (that instantly decided my choice) that I think would be fun to discuss in this forum.  He asked "who was the most famous socialist", after getting various answers ranging from Karl Marx, to even Barrack Obama he stated, "no you are all wrong.  The most famous progressive socialist was Jesus Christ".  Wow...This is going to be fun...and I thought you all might like to join in on the fun.  Please, intellectual discussion and pointing out of scriptures and principles in God's word only.  THIS IS NOT A DISCUSSION ON CHURCH FINANCES OR ECONOMY, (please note: SFIC and don't take over this thread).

    I will participate as well in this with thoughts, scriptures, and principles shown in God's word.

    I notice of the 11 officer signatures on the letter only 2 are male.  Just an interesting note about women usurping church leadership positions.
