  • Evergreen Outreach

    We had another great day, regardless of the downpour that nailed the bus as it was picking up our FAYCO friends!

  • God doesn't waste our time; let's follow his example

    I’m Norris Price, a retired minister, and I got angry a few weeks ago. It all began when Sam called and asked if I could meet with him to discuss a major event in his life.

    Monday was another fine day for Evergreen Outreach. Our leader was the Rev. Jim Fackler,  and our pianist was Donna Smith, a really good combination for having fun, laughter and music. That’s the way it was at the Fayette County Hospital Long Term Care activities room.
    We shared refreshments as everyone wondered if I could actually get the microphone to work! Since Donna knows most everything by heart, she played and we sang our opening songs.

  • The missing Beatitude: 'Blessed are the complainers'

    The beginning of the Sermon on the Mount, termed the Beatitudes, is located in Matthew 5:1-10.
    These wise sayings of Jesus are pithy, and at times we struggle to get the real meaning of the statements. For instance, in Matthew 5:5, it says: "Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth." Jesus tells us that meekness is a quality of Christ. They provide many insights in how to live our life.

  • 'Preach the gospel at all times. Use words if necessary'

    We had a good meeting Monday, with FAYCO and Vandalia Rehabilitation attending. We missed our Fayette County Hospital Long Term Care friends.
    And on a more serious note, we REALLY missed Judy and Bob Varga, and Katy (in hospital) and Randy Schukar, plus we missed Jeannie Schlicht, who is with Wolf in the hospital in Springfield. As we shared our refreshments, we tried to catch up with  everyone’s happenings. Phyllis Rames put it this way  – trying to get everything back to normal! Lord, we are trying!

  • Our churches need some 'Tango Mike Mikes'

    Monday was Memorial Day – a day off work for many and  no school for the kids. Even the YMCA was closed, so we all had an excuse to be lazy. And now that Memorial Day is over, our thoughts shift to the approaching summer.
