Archive November 2019
Greetings to everyone. For November I thought I would share with you a bit of old time wisdom in honor of the launch of our community garden.
A GARDEN STORY
** seeds that will yield valuable amounts of energy **
4 rows of peas: presence, promptness, participation and perseverance.
3 rows of squash (each a different variety): squash indifference, unfair criticism and gossip.
5 rows of lettuce: “lettuce” obey the rules – constitution and by-laws, “lettuce” be loyal to our organization – uphold its principles and objectives, “lettuce” be true to obligations – resolutions and polices, “lettuce” be faithful to duties and responsibilities and “lettuce” truly love one another.
4 rows of turnips: “turnip” for meetings, with a smile, with some new ideas, and with a determination to accomplish something worthwhile.
New Donation in September
I also wanted to share an exciting donation of a Bible by Charles and Judy Iager. As best I can tell it is from 1870 Prague Germany. So now we have a prayer book and a Bible from the time our congregation was founded. We are most blessed to have these examples.
St. Paul’s has a rich and long history to have been on the same corner for nearly 150 years. Planning for our 150th Anniversary is under way and we have teams working on different aspects of the celebration. We will again be meeting in Chapel at 7 pm on Monday, November 11th.
It’s not too late to join us and become involved and share your ideas and suggestions. Events are scheduled for each month. Come and see.
Hope to see you at the planning meeting.
PS keep watching for more information about the 150th Anniversary in the coming months!
