  • It’s official, I am now old because I have just hit the age of Medicare. Funny though, it doesn’t bother me, and I don’t feel that old.

  • In the Gospel of St. John 17:21 we read Jesus praying “That they may all be one.” This week is dedicated for a week of prayer for Christian Unity.

    Last Saturday, the ministerial association organized an ecumenical gathering at St. John Church hall. Breakfast and talk by former pastor of Methodist church, Shannon Boaz, expressed our Christian unity. She asked everyone in the group to share a few words of appreciation about others. She reminded us the letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians chapter 12 ‘One Body, Many Parts.’
