Dr Kirk Morton
Member of Men of Essex pens New Book of Daily Meditations
Biblical Nuggets: Daily Devotions for Everyday Life
BIBLICAL NUGGETS - Daily Devotions for Everyday Life is a book of yearlong devotions, and it was written with you in mind. Today, many are challenged by the plethora of circumstances which life presents and biblical nuggets will help you to address and cope with those circumstances by putting God's word as a daily portion (a nugget) first in your everyday life. This book will assist you in helping you to put God's word first and help you to address those daily challenges which arise every day in your life. I would hope that BIBLICAL NUGGETS has inspired you to want to read God's word on a daily basis and I hope and pray that as a result of these readings you would share this work with your family members, church members, co-workers and friends. I also pray that BIBLICAL NUGGETS would become a part of your daily devotional life as well.
For the past 62 years, the Men of Essex, Inc. has established an unsurpassed legacy of service to the Communities of Essex County, New Jersey. As the presenter of the Annual ‘Essex Award’ Ceremony we have achieved widespread recognition as a prestige salute to mark the extraordinary achievements of Essex County’s best and brightest high school athletes and athlete scholars. We are equally honored to host another hallmark fundraising event: the Annual Men of Essex Golf Classic, which is regarded as one of the prestige fundraising events of the summer season. All proceeds benefit the Men of Essex Student Aid Fund.
We have been honored and privileged to serve as a portal to salute excellence through the lens of the extraordinary achievements of our young leaders who exemplify enduring life affirming values and whose achievements will echo in eternity.
At this time of great uncertainty and challenge we hope you and your family are safe and observing all the safety protocols during this Corona Virus pandemic to help keep us all safe. Regrettably, the devastating impact of the (COVID -19) Corona Virus pandemic — has forced the cancellation of these hallmark fundraising events. As a result. we are experiencing a significant budget shortfall.
In light of this economic challenging circumstance, we call upon all former honorees and our legion of loyal supporters to make a suggested tax deductible contribution of $100 or any amount — small or large — you may be able to afford. Kindly visit our website www.themenofessex1958.org, to make your donation. The Men of Essex is a 501c3 not for profit corporation. Contributions are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
