Keep the "SON" Shining...
John Jefferson
Leland entertained us with a great story--those clothes were very important!--you had to 
be there...
Randy then showed us his latest treasure--a Niffon Tube.  His is a vintage  model, 
beautifully made--using silks that "blend" in a very unique way!!  A great find 
at a terrific price!
Bob told us of his adventures he had at the Sandy Springs resale magic event--such 
bargains! --anyone need a Wizard hat?   He then shared a prediction effect using the idea 
of the cutting of a newspaper column.  He had listed about 20 names from the Bible.  The 
volunteer can cut the paper at any place he desires.  The prediction is the name, Jesus.  
The message is that we make many unwise choices in our lives but our saviour is always 
there to forgive us and guide us to a better way.  Thank you, Bob for a great way to use 
that effect to share the gospel!! -- and thank you for giving each of us a the list of 
Lynn then entertained us with his fire routine involving a deck of cards.  Three of us 
were asked to make choices concerning the cards and in the end he predicted the very card 
one of us chose.  It was the only card that was spared from the fire.  The message was 
that we, as Christians don't have to rely on chance to know that we are saved.  Jesus 
died that we may live in eternity with Him.  Our salvation is not left to chance.  Thank 
you, Lynn.  An excellent illustration of God's promise to us.
John and Julia then performed the effect, ONE WAY that they had done for their church 
group this week. John called it his GPS and explained how it worked.   The message is 
that there is only one way to God, and that is through Jesus Christ.  The script was then 
given to all.
John also showed the trick, Slate of Mind. We discussed different presentation ideas.
Leland closed in prayer, remembering those who were absent and several specific prayer 
requests, after which we continued to share and have a wonderful fellowship.
Don't forget, the meeting next month will be the THIRD  THURSDAY--FEB. 19
