FIRST LUTHERAN CHURCH The members of First Lutheran Church warm- ly invite you to worship Sunday at 9:30 a.m. Then stay for refresh- ments and Adult Bible Study and children's Sunday School. Pastor, Reverend James Yon- kers, speaks from the Gospel each Sunday of Jesus' love for each of us. Known through- out the community as a friendly and serving church that welcomes newcomers.. The church is Iocat- Books on leadership line the shelves of book- stores. Each month, it seems, there are new titles that describe some new technique that will make any leader a better leader. From the "who to," to the "now to," to the "where to," to the "what to," to the "why to" and the "when to" these books cover every imaginable topic. But none of them ever give a money back guaran- tee that promises that "if you do this you will become successful and rise to the top." Solomon is recognized as a great leader. And as the author of Psalm 72 he describes the leadership qualities of a king that would be honored and blessed of God. It is no wonder, then that he begins with jus- tice and righteousness. It is almost impossible to imagine what it would be like if every leader at every level in every organization was com- mitted to being just and righteous. Yet, this is what God wants and expects of leaders. "Endow the king with Your justice, O God... May he judge Your people with righteousness!" Although our text reads justice, Solomon was asking God for leaders to set in motion a pro- cess that every leader would "do acts of justice, based on righteousness" that flowed for the top down. Solomon wanted everyone to be treated fairly. Of course, we say, "That's not possible, Lord." BUt He says to each of us "as one of my disciples you must do this. Even if no one else demonstrates my justice and if no one else shows my righteousness to those around them then you must set the example. You are ac- countable to me!" Visit us at .
