Emmanuel Annualish Picnic!!!
A Huge Success!
What a fun time! After Jen shared so powerfully
and the Samoans danced so beautifully at the service we were able to all
get together for a wondrous feast at Ralph B. Clark Park. I'm so glad
our Island brothers and sisters in Christ were able to share this BBQ
with us. We are definitely kindred souls! Pastor Time (Teemay) told me
that they believe in living out the good news of God's love and grace
(and they do it so well!) I'm sure we'll get together again!
Special thanks to Patty and Jeff McDaneld for
coordinating the event, to Ernie Moran for his culinary skills, for the
Edmond family in organizing the Chocolate Chip Cookie Contest, for the
set-up and take-down people, and for all of you who brought food,
drinks, and your marvelous presence!
Congratulations to Pam Notti, Dick & Sally
Adamson, and Kathy Peters as winners of the cookie contest! May you spin
your spatulas proudly.
I feel like it was one of our best picnics ever, and I am still wearing this silly and grateful grin.
