Thoughts: Years ago, my Uncle Wendell was a visiting professor at the University of Copenhagen. One Sunday afternoon he and his wife Betty tried to walk to a famous museum.
But they couldn’t find it, so they stopped a passing gentleman. In English, Uncle Wendell asked him for directions to the museum.
The man smiled and shook his head. So, in rather halting German, Uncle Wendell asked him again.
And again, the man smiled and shook his head. Aunt Betty tried asking him in French.
Once more, the smile, the head shake.
Uncle Wendell pulled out his Danish dictionary and slowly put together his question in Danish.
This time the man’s smile was broad. “Oh, so you really want to find the museum,” he said, in perfect English. “You turn left at the next street, and the museum is two blocks down on the left.”
Discussion: Discuss the significance of verse 11; “…we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.”
Activity: When you welcome visitors to our church, remember to ask them questions about themselves.

Don’t forget to bring your gently-used books for the UMW Book Sale on May 22nd and 29th. The deadline for books is May 18th so this is your last chance to clear your shelves and make room for new summer reading material.
