-                         LAST SUNDAY                      -

It was an unexpected change of plans to not do Morning Prayer service as Caroline made herself available for discussion regarding the Pledge Statement emailing error. It was a lovely service guided by Caroline through the Hymns and Prayer Book.  She will be taking this Sunday off in lieu of last.
We thank Billie Bell for playing the organ in Bernice’s absence.

-                  FOOD FOR THOUGHT                -

Surrender. The surrendering of our lives. Surrendering any notion that we “possess” our own lives. My life does not belong to me. That is how I would speak about having died with Christ and being raised with him.
