    Sometimes it flies over your head or you’re thinking about what’s for lunch and the pastor sounds like the teacher in the Charlie Brown cartoons going, “Waah, waah, waah,” and you have no idea what he said.

  • A time to remember

    It is that time of year when the calendar and all of nature begins to tell us it is summertime!

    Traditionally and recreationally, we are told that summer begins with the celebration of Memorial Day. We all enjoy the good times that summer brings. Time for various outdoor activities that otherwise would not be suitable. But it is also good for us to take time before the hustle of summer activities to do some “remembering.” In fact, it is always good to pause in the hectic pace of life and purposefully make time to reminisce about the days and years gone by.
