Another Remembrance Service

On Sunday night I attended another Remembrance Service in my home church, but that was quite different. Rather than focusing just on soldier who have given their lives for our country, members of our city police force, firefighters and First Responders (ambulance staff), were invited to this special inter-denominational service, and encouraged to come in […]

Back to a Schedule

Yesterday was my first day back to a schedule like I’ve used for years (with adjustments) to make progress on many jobs and goals at a steady pace. I felt so good at the end of the day! Do you ever ask yourself, “How will I get all this done?” May I tell you how […]

Two of My Traits

Two of my traits are making me a lot more work than you might get into. One is my commitment to keep any and every promise I make. The other is my resolve to do everything I tackle as WELL and THOROUGHLY as I can before I call it done. Really, I didn’t know how […]

October Overload

Back in April/May I volunteered to be on the Alliance Missions committee. This is together with the pastors of four other Alliance Churches, with just one goal; to plan the fall Missions Conference for October. That is coming up fast this next weekend. I was put in charge of negotiating the use of our church’s […]
