Twelve members told their Health Resolution as Secretary Brenda McCartney called the roll. Treasurer Paula Mazzagotte gave the treasurer's report. In the business meeting, President Cusick gave highlights of the County Council meeting. The Club agreed to give $20 to the Teen leader T-shirt Fundraiser. The door prize was won by Terri Stalnaker. Health Motivator and Lesson Leader Paula Mazzagotte discussed "a weigh" to a Healthier WV, and a new CEOS Health Program "10,000 Steps a Day".

One hundred fewer calories can help prevent Americans from continuing to gain weight. The best approach to weight control is careful food choices, small portions, and an active lifestyle. CEOS offers pedometers to count 10,000 steps a day. Paula gave each member a cal- endar to chart her steps. An encourig- ing lesson.

Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradltlOn__ Matthew 15:3 I/ , Is It In The Bible? Truth or Tradition? The forbidden fruit in The Garden of Eden was an apple. Noah took two of every ani- mal into the ark. The death angel slew the first born in the land of Egypt. Sunday is the Christian Sab- bath. Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Three wise men visited Baby Jesus in the stable. Jesus stumbled under the weight of the cross. Truth or Tradition? It is so easy for us to get caught up in tradition. Things we have heard all our lives, we often take for granted. There is much truth in the saying, "You hear a thing long enough, you will come to believe it is true." The scribes and Pharisees accused the deciplesof Jesus of transgress- ing the tradition of the elders, be- cause they were eating with "unwashen hands." but he charged them with rejecting the command- ment of God by their tradition (Mark 7:1-13). Since the Day of Pentecost. AD 33. almost 2.000 years ago, Chris- tianity has undergone great changes; some beliefs and practices have been added, some taken away, and others changed, so that much belief and practice in religion today is nothing more than tradition. Some traditions are common knowledge; some not so common. Sone traditions are important: some not so important. Some traditions transgress the Word of God. and can separate man from God eternally. Things we have heard all our lives. we tend to take for granted as true. and seldom stop to examine The Scriptures to see whether they are true or not. Folks are often surprised at what The Bible actually says, because is it different, from what they have al- ways heard. For example, which of the following are in The Bible? "For- give us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us." "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." "Cleanliness is nest to Godliness." "An idle mind is devil's workshop." Actually not one! The thought is in The Bible. but the word- ing is different. In the future articles in this col- umn, we want to look at some com- mon religious beliefs and practices, and example what The Bible has to say about it. Then you decide for yourself what is Truth and what is Tradition. "Study to shew thyself unto God. a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the 'word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15.
