Now that we know a little about who is in charge, let’s talk about our role. If we are His body here on earth (and I believe we are if we have believed into Him), then we should know what we are and what we are not. For many years I have thought that He often contains (or restrains) Himself based on what we think and do and say. It is not that He cannot do anything that He wants to do, but He has His ways and His goal is for us to come into harmony with Him. Thus He waits patiently for our proper call. As long as we are distracted and busy doing other things, we are clearly not busy doing His work and inviting His presence in our midst. We must seek Him to find out what that entails.

Finding Gems & Sharing Them – Who Is in Charge and What the Church Is Not
Julie Daniels and Jean Oliver, both Republican candidates for state Senate District 29, answered questions Monday night during a forum sponsored by the Green Country Republican Women’s Club, held in the Bartlesville City Council chambers.
The event was moderated by Charlie Taraboletti of Bartlesville Radio, and was standing room only. The candidates answered questions ranging from the struggling state budget, education and criminal justice reform.

I would deeply appreciate your prayers for one another as well as myself and family, that we may seek what is best. This is a week of national prayer, as announced by several prominent ministries. We must seek wisdom to know where to focus attention and energy in the coming weeks and months.
To everyone who contributed, even the least measure of support, I am most grateful for your help and common desire to bring a renewal of freedom, righteousness and justice to both the Republican party and the people of Oklahoma. Let’s take the earliest opportunity to meet again, encourage one another and pursue the hope of advancing the kingdom of God.
Excerpted from the letter above:
Gun Owners of America is a no compromise organization, and we were pleased to see that you have a solid understanding behind the legal and historical intent of the Second Amendment as set by our Founding Fathers. This made clear by your 100% score on the GOA candidate questionnaire.
Our nation is in desperate need of principled leaders like yourself, and your service in the Oklahoma Legislature will be invaluable in defense of the Second Amendment.
Mr. Barnett and his team are most honored by this vote of confidence from our friends at Gun Owners of America. We deeply appreciate their faithfulness in serving as watchdogs on the hill and encouraging grassroots activism armed with solid information on matters facing the nation relative to our precious second amendment rights.
Would you cast a vote that EMPOWERS a POLITICIAN turned CORPORATE LOBBYIST?
Would you even know if you were doing so?
Consider a 4th generation politician who has a family member that represents Oklahoma Gas and Electric and a list of other corporations lobbying for favors all the time and getting paid to do so.
Would you vote for them if you knew that a family member represents companies working to infringe on your 4th amendment rights to privacy by supporting and lobbying for companies who have made sure you have no way to opt out of the installation of Smart Meters?
Do you know which companies lobbied for this bill?
Many districts and races are effected around the state.
Be sure you know the linkages in your area and do not vote for those involved in this corporate scheme.
The contrast is very clear in the race in HD10.
In preparation for this meeting Gary Kilpatrick has announced a meeting to get us all up to speed on the issues. His invitation is below:
A PSO rate hearing before the Oklahoma Corporation Commission is scheduled for June 25th. A part of this rate hearing involves PSO’s request to install smart meters and the smart grid throughout their entire Oklahoma service area including Bartlesville.
Time is short to educate the citizens of Washington County to the downside of smart meters.
Therefore we are holding a Smart Meter Information Meeting this coming Thursday, June 19th at 6:30 pm in the Cherokee/Delaware Room at Tri County Technology Center, 6101 SE Nowata Road, Bartlesville, OK 74006.
