Nancy Allen's Head Shot

Nancy Allen

 

Nancy Allen is the author of the Ozarks Mystery Series, published by HarperCollins/Witness Impulse. She has the background required to tell the tales; she practiced law for fifteen years as Assistant Missouri Attorney General and Assistant Prosecutor in her native Ozarks.  She's tried over thirty jury cases, including murder and sexual offenses, and is now a law professor at Missouri State University, as well as an author of legal thrillers. 

Her debut novel, The Code of the Hills, was published in 2014 by HarperCollins. A Killing at the Creek came out in 2015; her third book, The Wages of Sin was released in April, 2016. The Ozarks Mysteries follow the career of Elsie Arnold, a tenacious (but flawed) Ozarks prosecutor. 

Nancy is currently co-authoring with James Patterson on a legal thriller to be published in James Patterson's BookShots series for Hachette/Little Brown.

2 Corinthians 3:12-18 English Standard Version (ESV)

12 Since we have such a hope, we are very bold, 13 not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze at the outcome of what was being brought to an end. 14 But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. 15 Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts. 16 But when one[a] turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. 17 Now the Lord[b] is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord,[c] are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another.[d] For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. 4:1 Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God,[a] we do not lose heart. But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice[b] cunning or to tamper with God's word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone's conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants[c] for Jesus' sake. For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

 

This passage gives me comfort, especially as a pastor, because I truly understand that it is only the Holy Spirit, working through the Gospel, that gives real, true, and lasting growth.  My only jobs are to preach and teach God's Word, administer the Sacraments, and lead people to Christ.  After that I need to shut up and get out of the way. 

            Those who are obstinate, those who reject the Gospel, and those who have problems with God and all that he stands for, are the same ones who, when Moses came down the mountain with a glowing face, asked him to put a veil over it, because they couldn't stand to look at it. It was too much for tem and they didn't want to behold God.  They wanted a god who they could mold and shape and use for their own benefit.  They wanted a god who would fit into them and not the other way around. 

            "But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed."  There are so many people that I know that simply need to do this.  Maybe you are one of them.  Do you need a God whose glory is veiled or are you ready to take the veil off and see God for who he really is, your majestic Lord and Savior, your creator and redeemer, your boss, your master?  Are you ready to turn and fall at the feet of God?  I pray that you are and that you will continue to be so that God can show you his real, full glory, give you his forgiveness, and grow you in his grace!  So that you can really experience that peace that passes all understanding, so that you can get rid of that guilt you've been hanging on to, so that you can get rid of that bitterness and anger that you have against that certain person, so that you can move forward in faith and peace instead of looking back to the broken past. 

            Christ is risen!  He is risen indeed!  Alleluia!  Live and love in that truth!  Amen!

 

Prayer: Lord, may that peace, that only you can give and that passes all understanding, flow from you to us so that your glory may shine to us, in us, and through us.  Amen.

RETIREMENT SEMINARS AVAILABLE.  WHO IS INTERESTED?

Denny Hagan from eldercare associates would like to know how many people would be interested in attending one or more of the following seminars if he were to come out to St. John's to do them.

 

 

  1. Identity theft. With tax season coming, this is a serious concern to not only seniors, but to everybody that has a Social Security Number. As a matter of fact, the most profitable Information on the net, is for children. It takes much longer to catch the issue, due to lack of use of the children's numbers.

 

  1. Changes in how Medicare Part B, is billed to Seniors, It is more important than ever that one takes the time to plan their retirement. Medicare part B is billed based on one's income, and to make it even more confusing, it is based on your income of 2 years ago.  Now, before we start scaring anybody, If they are already receiving benefits, this new rule, will not apply. All of these rules, are changes in Social Security. 

 

  1. Understanding Social Security: how to get all that is coming to you and making the most of it. 

 

 

If anyone is interested in any of these, please let me know, and if we get enough people interested, we will get Denny to come out and do a presentation.
