    At last, the daffodils were up and the sun was shining as we held our Evergreen Outreach meeting on Monday. Everyone was ready and happy to be together again, since we were snowed out last week by 12 inches of snow. Whew – glad that is over!
    Sharing our faith through prayer, scripture and song made it a glorious meeting. The nice lobby/living room of Vandalia Rehabilitation was packed! Beulah Brown tried to pull a fast April fool’s joke and made everyone look outside when she exclaimed it was raining! Tsk, tsk.

  • Believers should have hearts that burn for Christ

    Luke 24 paints a vibrant picture of events following the resurrection of Christ. In this passage, we find a couple of men walking along a road talking about the events of the past weekend.

  • In the resurrection, God has conquered sin, death

    “On the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early in the morning, while it was still dark, and saw the stone removed from the tomb” (John 20:1).

    Monday's Evergreen Outreach meeting started with a smile, as Phyllis Rames was our leader. It was smooth as silk and warm as toast, in spite of the blustery cold weather.
    Three quarters of the Fourgiven Quartet made their way to Wesley Hall to share their faith and Southern gospel music with us. They were DeWayne Brown, lead singer, Bob Culbertson, tenor singer, and Jeff Hempkin, baritone singer and piano player.    Refreshments were provided by EO and volunteers.

  • A word from the wise – don't forget the ChapStick

    I once was selected by the Army to attend a training course at Fort Bragg, N.C. Prior to reporting to duty, the training center sent a “packing list” of all required field items that were to be in my possession to attend the course.

    Beulah Brown welcomed everyone with the old greeting: "We’re all in our places with bright shiny faces." She has the wonderful gift of welcoming.
    We sang the "Outreach" and "Welcome" songs, and then sang "Happy Birthday" to Marge Tipsword, Donna Pruett, Tracy Stokes and Bill Whitehurst.
     It was good to see Bernie Ray back at the piano. She played some wonderful music,  including “You Belong to Me.”

  • Christians should be free from the fear of death

    All over the world and in every age, there has been a universal fear of death. Death is inevitable, and we know that all our lives.

    The dining room at Long Term Care at Fayette County Hospital was completely filled with Evergreen Outreach participants as they gathered on Monday. The regular EO meeting place, First United Methodist Church, was unavailable that day, thus the change of venue.
