The Sabbath-school affords to parents and children a precious opportunity for the study of God’s Word.

But in order to gain that benefit which they should gain in the Sabbath-school, both parents and children should devote time to the study of the lessons, seeking to obtain

a thorough knowledge of the facts presented, and also of the spiritual truths which these facts are designed to teach.

Sick, Shut In, and Missing Members

 

Please help me to reach out to our members via greeting cards and notes while they are experiencing illness, emotional stress, struggling with church attendance, or to those who just need encouragement. I need help in identifying these saints so that I can send them a word from our church family.

 

Many, many thanks to Sis Lois Bethea, and Bro Bennie Lucas for constantly bringing me stamps to help defray the cost of this Greeting Card Ministry. 

 

Please remember those members who are caretakers as well.

Benefits of Chickpeas #3 ~ Known also as Garbanzo beans, are part of the legume family.  Chickpeas are a good source of plant-based protein, fiber, manganese and folate, in addition to a host of vitamins and minerals.  Because it is a complex carbohydrate, the body is able to slowly digest it and use it for energy. As a complex carbohydrate, there will not be sudden spikes in blood sugar levels.  Chickpeas lowers LDL cholesterol levels, helps to prevent constipation due to its fiber content, as well as additional benefits. Chickpeas can be purchased dried (hard) or in cans. When using dried chickpeas, it is best to soak it in water overnight. Throw off the water the next day and add water to cook.  If using canned chickpeas, throw off the water and rinse the chick peas. Enjoy what God has provided for our good!

 

Chickpea and Spinach or Kale Spread or Salad


INGREDIENTS:

2 medium spinach or kale leaves rinsed well

1 medium carrot peeled and cut into chunks

2 cups cooked or one 15-16 oz can (drained and rinsed) chickpeas

2 Tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)

⅓ cup mayo

2 tsp yellow mustard (optional)

¼ c fresh parsley leaves or 1-2 Tbsp fresh dill leaves

1-2 scallions, green parts only, cut into large pieces, (I used 1 Tbsp chopped red onions or more to taste)

½ tsp curry powder or turmeric, or more to taste

½ tsp ground cumin, or more to taste

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

Combine the spinach and carrot in a food processor; pulse until finely chopped.

Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until the chickpeas are evenly chopped and everything is nicely blended--don’t over-process; leave the mixture a bit chunky.

Cover and refrigerate so that the flavors come together.

Serving suggestions ~ good on bread as a spread with lettuce, tomatoes, etc., a filling for pita bread, a wrap, spread on crackers or pita chips, or scoop it onto a sturdy flatbread and serve open-faced.

Good for lunch, picnics, light meal, and even Camp meeting!

Lip smacking, satisfying, and delicious!
