Weekly Contact- June 13, 2013

Hello there, Sunday is Father’s Day, and we are grateful for the men who had good and meaningful influences on our lives. A men’s chorus will be singing a fun gospel number entitled “The Spiritual Chariot.” If any other men would like to join them, it is not a difficult piece.  Just show up at […]

Hello there, If you subscribe to The Gazette, you may have seen a familiar face and name on the front page of yesterday’s (June 5th) paper.  A reporter contacted me a few weeks ago and wanted to talk about the mega-churches in the area and whether or not they are taking members away from us […]

Weekly Contact- April 18, 2013

Hello there, It has been a difficult week, between the horror of the bombing at the Boston Marathon and the terrible explosion down near Waco, TX.  If you are on Facebook or some other social media, you have probably already seen this quote from a Presbyterian minister, the Rev. Fred Rogers: “When I was a […]
