CKAC Prayer Request

Hello friends,

I would be most thankful for prayer for my brother Paul Crichton for today and tomorrow. He had an accident a short while ago, and has seriously broken two bones in one of his legs. Other than this he is ok, but will need surgery (which is tentatively scheduled tomorrow). Many years ago, he was in an accident and received serious injuries to his other leg and hip, so the newly broken leg was his good leg. He will surely appreciate a prayer for a successful surgery and good recovery.

With thanksgiving,

Susan

CKAC/COH: New Parish Administrator

A Parish Administrator has been hired for Christ the King – With the consent of the Vestry, and following almost a year of planning, Amanda Roberts has been hired to be Christ the King’s first dedicated parish administrator.

The Roberts are moving back into town Memorial Day weekend and Amanda will begin her duties in mid June. In this new role, Amanda will be taking over many of the things that we have experienced Erin Caldwell doing for us, and especially focusing on parish administration and coordinating the many volunteers that accomplish the many specific tasks in support of the life of the church.

Erin will continue to serve as Fr. Wayne’s personal assistant. Please welcome Amanda as she begins this new ministry.

Also, please remember to thank Erin for all that she has been doing for us and
congratulate her on the advent of this transition.

Questions may be directed to Andy Figueroa.

CKAC/COH:Prayer request

Dear friends –

My heart is very, very heavy and I am asking for you (and all those you know who know my family) to pray for us. We just received news that my 37 year old daughter Janet has stage 4 cancer. She experienced severe chest pains and thought she was having a heart attack. A mass was discovered between her lungs and heart; biopsies came back positively identifying squamis (spelling?) cells – very fast growing type of cancer.

Janet is a very Godly woman, but is on a roller-coaster with her emotions (as I am!) She was given no hope, and likely a short time to live. She and Paul have met with Levi’s teachers and I’m going to help them financially with counseling for him; he’s 11 and extremely apprehensive/worried. Today was her first chemo treatment; they’re simply trying to contain it so it won’t further grow in size and spread any more. She is in severe pain whenever she lies down.

Paul’s sister died from cancer just a couple of weeks ago, and he is very angry at God. So, all of us need prayer. Janet’s daughter Jessica – who just graduated from B.G.S.U. – came home to care for her mother until the end. Her son Tyler is graduating from high school tonight and will be going to Ashland University in August on a scholarship.

I would appreciate it if you forward this e-mail to Kairos volunteers, St. Christopher’s (where Janet grew up), Christ Our King, and Christ Our Hope churches as well as friends and relatives. I simply can’t talk about it right now without becoming a basket case. I’m in constant prayer with Jesus, and am trying to get the tears to stop so I will be able to be strong for Janet and the family.

Thank you for your emotional and spiritual support. God bless.

CKAC/COH: Fun incense article

21 May 2008

*Incense Found To Be Psychoactive*
by Kate Melville

Biologists from Johns Hopkins University and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem have discovered that burning frankincense (resin from the Boswellia plant) activates poorly understood ion channels in the brain that alleviate anxiety and depression, suggesting that an entirely new class of medicinal drugs might be right under our noses.

Reporting their findings in /The FASEB Journal/, the researchers said that the active compound – incensole acetate – significantly affected areas in the brain known to be involved in emotions as well as in nerve circuits that are affected by currently prescribed anxiety and depression drugs.

“In spite of information stemming from ancient texts, constituents of Boswellia had not been investigated for psychoactivity,” said researcher Raphael Mechoulam. “We found that incensole acetate, a Boswellia resin constituent, when tested in mice lowers anxiety and causes
antidepressive-like behavior. Apparently, most present day worshipers assume that incense burning has only a symbolic meaning.”

To make their discovery, the researchers administered incensole acetate to mice and found that the compound activated a protein called TRPV3, which is present in mammalian brains and also known to play a role in the perception of warmth of the skin. When mice bred without this protein were exposed to incensole acetate, the compound had no effect on their brains.

Gerald Weissmann, Editor-in-Chief of /The FASEB Journal/ writes that “The discovery of how incensole acetate, purified from frankincense, works on specific targets in the brain should also help us understand diseases of the nervous system. This study also provides a biological explanation for millennia-old spiritual practices that have persisted across time, distance, culture, language, and religion – burning incense really does make you feel warm and tingly all over!”

Hi,

Here are the dates for joint CKAC/COH picnics. They all fall on the 4th Sunday of the month – June 27, July 25, August 29, September 26.

Do you see any major conflicts with any of these dates? Some Forest Ridge swimmers have a swim team picnic on July 25th, but that is the only conflict I know of for certain.

Yeah summer!

CKAC/COH: Terry Sebree’s Dad

Hello,

Terry’s Dad was taken to the hospital in Oxford, OH for some serious bleeding. She is asking for prayer for wisdom for the doctor’s and for her father’s healing.

Her father is anemic and any bleeding is serious.

Thanks you for your prayers.

Prayer request: Current’s

As some of you may know, Greg’s sister, Lisa, was diagnosed this past week with having Breast Cancer. On Friday she was told that she would have to receive a masectomy and that she had cancer in another part of her body as well. She has two children that are 11 (the two are surving triplets – their brother died shortly after his birth. One of these children has cerebral palsy), one who is 10 and one who is 22. Please keep her and her family in your prayers.

Thank you Susan C.
