Actually lesson 4 of the Good news brochure depicting Jesus with wings was thought by a Catholic call of mine to be lowering Jesus to rank of a regular angel.  (of course she believes strongly in the trinity)  It was an uphill discussion to explain this was illustrating his Jesus powerful (archangel) position. Anyone had this issue? (Sorry to go off topic)

Sept. 2016 W--on wearing a beard-----Perhaps you already know, but thot I'd post it anyway.

17 Is it appropriate for brothers to wear a beard? The Mosaic Law required men to wear a beard. However, Christians are not under the Mosaic Law or required to follow it. (Leviticus  19:27; 21:5; Galatians 3:24, 25) In some cultures, a neatly trimmed beard may be acceptable and respectable, and it may not at all prevent people from listening to our message. In fact, some appointed brothers have beards. Even so, some brothers might decide not to wear a beard. (1 Corinthians 8:9, 13;10:32) In other cultures or locations, beards are not the custom and are not considered acceptable for Christian ministers. In fact, having one may prevent a brother from bringing glory to God and from being “irreprehensible.”—1 Timothy 3:2, 7; Romans 15:1-3.
