Peg stayed at the grocery store as a cashier for many years. She also worked at St. Mary's Hospital as an aide in Respiratory Therapy and as a cashier at Cardinal Liquor Store. She was close to 80 years old when she finally retired. Peg has a son Anthony "Joe" Zucco living in Indiana and a daughter Mary Wortman in Decatur.

William Pyatt Weekend Celebrations Blended Service 9:00 a.m. Sunday School 10:30 a.m. Musings Continuiag from the Scripture Passage of 1 Corinthians 15: 1- 19, today's thought is that of"The certainty of the Resurrection. "For I delivered unto you first of all that which also I received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scripture. And that, He was buried , and that, He rose again the third day according to the scriptures." 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV In one of Plato's dialogues, there is an account of Socrates' 10st day on earth. As he awaited execution, a group of his followers came to visit. Naturally the discussion turned to the subject of immorality. Where would the philosopher go after death? What lies beyond the grave? Could Socrates shed any light on these questions? They talked al day, examining the questions from every angle they could. They concluded that it was almost impossible to attain any certainty about such questions in the present life. All people can do, they reasoned, is take the best of human notions and let that be a raft on which they sail through life. Furthermore, they considered, this voyage is risky, but it is the only alternative, unless people could find some Word from God to more surely and safely carry them. These friends who had assembled in the jail in Athens never found that sure Word of God. But, we have it. It is given to us in 1 Corinthians chapter 15. The resurrection of Christ should not have been a surprise. Jesus often spoke of it (Mark (9:10,31). But before Jesus spoke of it, it had been prophesied in the Old Testament. He referred to these prophecies on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:25-27). The scriptures Jesus used were Psalms 16:10 and 68:l.What shall we say of this kind of evidence? Fulfilled prophecy is the greatest and highest of all attestations that Christ is truly the Son of God and was raised from the dead. Paul next relates a list of those who had seen Christ. The Word seen refers to seeing with the eye as opposed to a vision or hallucination. This is also strong evidence. How do you prove anything? In a court of law we determine the credibility of a case by the number, agreement, and reliability of witnesses. The resurrection was seen by the women, then Peter and John, 'then the rest of the twelve disciplesl Later Christ was seen by over five hundred people at one time. When Paul wrote this letter, most of these people were still alive and could have been questioned if his readers had desired to do so. Verse 6 In closing I would like to suggest that we may believe one ' person, and even be impressed with ten' people telling the same story, but when 500 have the same word to tell we are probably going to be believers. 'Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved. God bless, Pastors Dean and Darlene Rose, Mt Zion Assembly of God Wise And Otherwise Continued From Page 3 smoke at times. A quick sweep with the vacuum undemeaih put a damper on their party for certain but don't worry, it was not a complete mass extinction of the lint critters. Most everything went back in except for the empty box, the wom out shoes, the dog toys, the office supplies and the random items - many of which went right back up onthe headboard to be knocked off at a later date. Now that it is all said and done there might even be room .for a smallish monster or two under there. That is if they aren't afraid of a few large, card-playing, beer-drinking, chain smoking dust bunnies with anger management issues.
