For his ser- mon, he chose a scripture reading from Genesis and titled his sermon "Using Our Power for God." We again look into the life of Joseph (not the Joseph that was the father of Jesus). In the country of his brothers there was fam- ine so they went to Egypt to try to get food, not knowing that their brother Joseph was second in command in that land. Being a good man and not telling the brothers who he was, he let them have the food to stave off starvation. His power was from God as each of us have God gwen power. We need to use it wisely, for good, not evil. After the service all gathered at the senior center where the congregation members were guests in fellowship with the Catholic Church congregation.
