The gardening team has made plans for this spring's planting. Our first project is to replant the beds we planted in turnip greens last fall with various spring/summer veggies that people can pick when they are ready.

The fence is to keep critters out, not people. We plan to plant sugar snap peas or some other vine veggie on the fence itself.

We've got a good audio system in the sanctuary, and we're finally getting the hang of using the wireless mics, but for some of us, even the best audio transmission over house sound isn't enough. To address this issue, we have installed an FM radio transmitter - set to the frequency of FM 87.9 on the dial - to broadcast on a short range signal everything coming through the sound b
Although the original Thanksgiving Day is remembered as a harvest festival celebrated by the Pilgrims in 1621 in which, according to to the traditional account, they owed no small debt to the native Americans who helped them, it was declared an official national holiday by President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War over 200 years later.

We call this Sunday "Christ the King" or "Reign
