Chapel & Mayberry Bible Study


Chapel & Mayberry Bible Study

Visit the chapel for comfort, support, and prayer. Your Mayberry friends will join you and lift up your concerns. This is not an area for random talk but rather for quiet reflection. 

We will also use this area for discussion of the Mayberry Bible Study to include the podcast version of the study.

The Mayberry Bible Study Podcast is based on the Mayberry Bible Study originated by Joey Fann back in 1998.

Host Allan Newsome will be visiting episodes of The Andy Griffith Show and exploring how characters from The Andy Griffith Showbehave.  Does their behavior reflect poorly or positively, from a Christian perspective, on their character.

The podcast will be released monthly. We will listen to an episode of The Andy Griffith Show and then discuss what we might learn. The podcast will focus on the 16 public domain episodes of The Andy Griffith Showbecause we want to show good character and no break copyright law as we study what the Bible teaches.

We hope you’ll join us for some Mayberry fun, prayer, and learn a little along the way.

Lesson Introduction

Andy, as the Justice of the Peace, has married Charlene Darling to Dud Wash. However, Ernest T. Bass believes they aren’t truly married since he isn’t a real preacher.

Bless u, Sheryl--Thanks!!

in my relationship with my fiancé,we have been able to agree to work things out so far. not easy, but important to have faith in this process.

[Pro 3:6] In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.

It's a simple promise, but if we claim it in faith, it is as sure as the needle to the pole.

Thank you Janet for your reply and very good advice.  I have been slack in my Bible reading so I will start that today. Thank you Sheryl and everyone else for your prayers. I will keep you posted.

Great advice, Janet. I needed to hear that myself. Too often I don't pray for God's guidance when I should. I hope everyone here in the Mayberry chapel has a wonderful weekend. Prayers for Lila, Eric, Big Jeff Pruitt, Allan, Cheryl and all other Mayberry friends. Have a blessed Sabbath Day !

Cheryl, the answer to how a Christian knows God's will for his or her life is not a cut and dried one.  I think that when we are following God's will, we generally do feel at peace if we are in close fellowship with the Lord.  However, I wouldn't rely on feelings alone to make a decision, as feelings can deceive us.  If we want something very strongly, we are already predisposed toward a particular decision, and that can certainly sway our feelings.  I would first of all encourage you to spend a lot of time in God's word.  The Bible is not going to explicitly tell you whether or not to move to Mt. Airy, of course!  But the Bible does give us principles for living that we can and should apply to all of life's decisions, whether great or small.  Secondly, make this a matter of prayer (as you have already indicated you are doing), and ask other trusted believers to pray with you for wisdom.  Thirdly, seek counsel from godly Christians, ones whom you have observed following the Lord's leading in their own lives.  They may give you a different perspective on the matter which would prove helpful, or they may simply confirm the decision you're leaning toward and encourage you to take that first step to fulfill it.  Sometimes God speaks to us through other believers.  Fourthly, after you have done the other things, be sensitive to circumstances.  God's providential working in everyday situations can indicate how He is leading us.  They can either confirm that we are moving in the right direction or block our path and indicate we need to go a different way.  Cheryl, I hope you find these suggestions helpful as you seek God's will for this big decision.

How does a Christian know God's will for their life? Is it a feeling or a peace that you feel?  I am starting life over again and want very much to move to move to Mt. Airy. I have had some delays because of funds needed to make the move. I have never been a decision maker. I love the mountains because I feel totally at peace.  I have my 32ft. avion travel trailer that I will be living in no matter where I go. What signs do I look for as I pray for God's Will?

It has been a Blessing tome being apart of the family

God Bless

I wanted to thank you all for the prayers and for feeling open enough to share prayer requests here on the board. Jeff, I'm glad the Lord was looking for you and you ran in to him here in Mayberry.  He is everywhere....if we're looking for him.  God bless all of you.

Prayer Request for Russell "Floyd" Hiatt owner of Floyd's City Barber Shop in Mt. Airy (Mayberry), NC.  He has had emergency surgery this past week and should be at home resting.  Not sure what the surgery was for.  Found this out at the barbershop on Monday.  One of his employees, Lana, advised me of same.

I want to thank God and praise Him for the ministry (yes, I said ministry) of Allan and all you folks here at The Lord truly works in mysterious ways. I've been out in the world wandering for 9 years, and could never have dreamed Jesus would come looking for this lost sheep through the influence of The Andy Griffith Show.

Amazing Grace!
Comment by Sheryl McBride on September 3, 2012 at 2:06pm

I would like to ask my Mayberry friends to please pray for my son. I had to take him to the ER last Wednesday with chest pains and shortness of breath. Xrays showed a collapsed lung. His recovery is going slowly; please pray that God will comfort and bless him during this time. He's a smoker and this has scared him to the point that he says he is quitting his tobacco habit. Please pray for his deliverance from smoking. Thanks !
