cook with fire


This next Sunday is our Consecration Sunday, where we ask people to commit their financial support for the church for the next year. We've had about 65 people at each of the last two luncheons. This year, we have a confirmed attendance of 101. And we haven't gotten around to calling the laggards yet. Someone suggested that attendance was up because the Scouts were catering the meal. I don't care why it's up, I'm just glad that somebody's excited about something going on here. It bodes very well for the congregation.

And it means we've got our work cut out for us this week.

Prayer request

Sassafras had a scary episode this weekend while I was out hiking. She collapsed in our back yard. collinsmom took her to the vet and she had an ultrasound and a bunch of bloodwork done. The vet called this evening and said her bloodwork looked great; he wished his looked that good. No fears for any heart problem, such as syncope.

It looks like she had a seizure. That may be a one-time thing. Or it might develop into something. We need to watch her carefully. Your prayers for her would be appreciated.
