If you visited this web site last week, you probably noticed the blog had not changed from the previous week. That is because I had a horrible cold and the cold won. I became so ill at Central that I had to leave early. Fortunately, Ron Bowyer was there to close the service for me. Members of the laity: Glenn Eanes, Kristi Gruber & Karen Trueblood stepped forward and led the services at the other churches on the Charge. I went home and went to bed. I went to the doctor the following week and got some great meds and now....I'm back! As we celebrate this week this Season of Joy, my joy is in the folks on this Charge who so joyfully help in time of my need. You are an inspiration to me.
We celebrated with great joy last evening as the community gathered at the American Legion in support of the Amazing Grace Food Pantry. Amid the music by Rain Crow and Santa's visit, the Sherrods auctioned items donated by businesses, churches and other friends of the Pantry. All the while, folks munched on the food. After the auction, Patty Austin led us in singing the songs of the season. Joy, Joy, go now my friends, and spread joy in your little corner of the world.
As we enter this holy of times, may your spirits be renewed as we welcome once again, the babe in the manger. Peace, my friends
