"SPEER-itual Moments"


By: Rev. Gary H. Speer

Back to it!  Thank you, Jim Hogan, and supporting cast for Sunday, September 11, while I was away on vacation. I have picked up where Jim left off this past Sunday, and will continue one more Sunday with this special three-part message series: Faith. Family. Friends.—Changing Perspectives in a Changing World.
 
Back to it! Hospital visits. Catching up. Re-entry is always a little difficult after one of the best and most relaxing trips Kathy and I have taken in some time…just the two of us.
 
But I’m back at it! While I was away our “Disciples Women” cooked up an idea for a Potluck Dinner on September 28; more about that elsewhere. I am gearing up to begin “Re-NEW” Bible Study very soon—watch for details. The first day of autumn is this Thursday—don’t worry you may not notice it given this weeks’ hot temps and heat indices!

Our Scout Troop #2112 is busy with Popcorn sales and Christmas wreath sales—both will help support the troop and our scouts.
 
And I begin looking ahead and working ahead as I look to the special seasons that will be here before we know it.
 
Nominating Committee at work.
 
Church Board meets this Sunday.
 
And I have Area Cabinet this week and an Area Board meeting on October 1.
 
Did I just mention October? Almost here!
 
So you have it pretty well figured out by now…summer is over…time to move forward more fully into this new fall season.
 
See you Sunday!
 
And yes, it is good to be back!
 
Devotedly,
 
Gary
