"I love him; I love his ministry; what he does, and his beautiful wife and daughters," said Winans. "They always have been cream of the crop and I have met millions of people, but it's very few you can just pick up right where you left off, but he is one of those people." Bishop McCarter reiterated the point by saying, "I've seen her out side of the church at a conference or something and she sees me and I see her, and it doesn't matter who either one of us are with, we will just hang out." The Greater Cleveland Avenue choir kicked things off with exceptional singing that brought everyone to their feet and even b ringing Pastor McCarter some out of their pews and into the aisle. The children of the church then performed an interpretative mime dance routine, followed by a tandem routine performed by church mem bers Stephanie Burrison and Courtney Smith. Winans took the stage and had everyone in stitches as she prefaced her performance with a little comedy and spoke about her longtime friend ship with the McCarter family. Winans sang beautifully even though she was supposed to be resting her voice, but said she definitely was not going to miss this event. She went on to say that the songs that she sang were all requested by friends from Greater Cleveland and even sang an encore song requested by the Bishop himself. Bishop McCarter's sermon cen tered around the phrase "The struggle is real, but the benefits are better," touching on the fact everyone goes through a struggle at some point in time in their lives, but you have to persevere because the reward that comes after the struggle will be well worth it. Winans also spoke about her jew elry line that will be released later this year and told everyone there is no limit to what you can make in life. She wants to use this as a springboard to teach other young women that this is easy to do and the revenue can be used for such things as college tuition. Lesson from page B5 Jewish kosher law, the centurion is considered unclean so Jesus would not be permitted by law to enter his house. But in their efforts to intervene for the centurion, the eld ers tell Jesus that the centurion is not only a God-fearer, but has also built a synagogue for them and is therefore worthy of Jesus' attention. Because of His compassion for both the man and his servant, Jesus makes the decision to go to the centurion's house. Almost at the centurion's house, Jesus is greeted by a few of the centurion's friends who now speak on behalf of the centurion. The message from the centurion is relayed in the first person making it emphatic. "I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof." (vs.7:6) "Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee." (vs. 7:7) "For I also am a man set under authority ..." (vs 7:8) In the midst of his declarations of his unworthiness is also a declaration of profound faith or "great faith," as Jesus puts it, "but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed." (vs. 7:7) The cen turion had faith that Jesus could heal from afar off just by speaking it into being. The centurion, aware of his own m' ? ? ' * ; fcM'V.' "mf authority under Caesar, acknowledges that Jesus' authori ty is under God, the highest power. Jesus responds not to the messengers only, but to the entire body of onlookers saying, "I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel." (vs. 7:9) The next verse and ending verse to this lesson states, "And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.'" (vs. 7:10) If we pay close attention, we find that the ser vant is not healed by Jesus speaking afar off, but rather by His thoughts. (See Jerimiah 29:11) For Your Consideration: How does Jesus' authority apply to our daily lives as followers of Him? How can we cultivate "great faith" in our lives? Life's Application: Sickness and disease ravage many in our society. We respond by seeking medical care and attention. This is natural and a provision that God has given us. But in cases of terminal illness, health care can only do so much. These are the times we seek God's inter vention. This is the time when our faith in God is most important. We have faith that God is able to heal if He chooses to do so. "The issue is not God's ability but His plan." Don Anderson, Union Gospel Press, UMI, Annual Commentary 2015-2016. t IN MEMORIAM FICHTER Adjunct Professor for the Graduate School of Wilbur B. "Buck" Engineering at The Fichter of Williamsburg, George Washington VA, died on March 23, University where he 2016. taught courses on theory Buck was born in and applications of com 17: A. VT^~S _ 1 ! ivinsion, mv,, on July 19, 1935, to John and Agnes Fichter. He was an ace high school pitcher, and then played for Wake Forest University when they won the 1955 NCAA Division 1 Baseball Championship. Following graduation from Wake in 1957 with a degree in Mathematics, he came to NACA (now NASA) in Hampton, VA. He met Ann Bowles, a fellow NACA employee, in a graduate math class. They were married on August 30, 1958, and spent 54 blissful years together. Ann preceded Buck in eternal rest on January 31,2013. While at NAC A/NASA, Buck continued his education, first getting a Master's degree in Engineering Mathematics from Virginia Polytechnic Institute in 1966, and then a PhD in Engineering Mathematics from North Carolina State University in 1969. During his dis tinguished career, Buck helped America's space program, publishing many technical papers on esoteric subjects such as the vibration characteris tics of critical aircraft structures, and pre dictable errors in antenna mesh structures. While working at NASA, he also worked as an Adjunct Professor at Christopher Newport College where he taught Math classes in the evenings for many years. He later became an piex vari ables. His athleticism continued to flourish, with Buck serving as a high school foot ball referee, and later developing an impres sive golf game. Buck is survived by his children and grand children: Bryan, Deborah, Dane, and Shelby Fichter, of Maryland; and Lee Ann, John, and Jessica VanOrmer of northern Virginia. Their love and support brought a com fort to Buck that no med icine could have provid ed. Finding love once in a lifetime is remarkable. Buck was lucky enough to find it twice, spending much of his final years with Annie Rex of Gloucester, VA. Her warmth, energy and love brightened Buck's days. The family intends to host an event in "Celebration of Buck's Life" where we would like to share happy mem ories with family and friends. Details of the event will be published at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to Heritage Humane Society, 430 Waller Mill Road, Williamsburg, VA 23185; Williamsburg Regional Library, 515 Scotland, St., Williamsburg, VA 23185; and Hospice House and Support Care of Williamsburg, 4445 Powhatan Parkway, Williamsburg, VA 23188.
