In the 188 years of Old Union Christian Church, Scott and Susan Winkler are the second pastors of 20 years or more service. We are celebrating today with a huge potluck lunch after services this morning. I can hardly wait to see all the food. There will be ham, fried chicken, roast beef, meatloaf, green beans, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, butter beans, on and on. Salads I've never heard of, and desserts that will make you cry.
The wonderful Christian Women's Fellowship of the church provide and serve this beautiful meal. They are amazing. I'm honored that they let me be a part of the group. My contribution today will be Peach and Blueberry Cobbler. Of course it just happens to be Scott's favorite. I'm always trying to have someone put in a good word for me with the Lord.
I hope they know how much they are loved and appreciated by all of us. Their two precious children, Michael and Anna are so loved by everyone. They have more grandmothers than anyone I know. Wish all of you could be here today to enjoy this meal and meet Scott, Susan, Michael and Anna.
Remember to tell your pastor, priest, rabbi, etc., how much you appreciate them today.
Romans 12:6-8 From The Message
If you preach, just preach God's Message, nothing else; if you help just help, don't take over, if you teach, stick to your teaching; if you give encouraging guidance,, be careful that you don't get bossy; if you're put in charge, don't manipulate; if you're called to give aid to people in distress, keep your eyes open and be quick to respond; if you work with the disadvantaged, don't let yourself get irritated with them or depressed by them. Keep a smile on your face.
Scott and Susan never fail to remember this passage.
