Today I arrived at church at my usual time only to find it still in session. It’s my custom to get there near the end of the first service so I can chat with people between services. The people from the first service are terrific. However, I personally enjoy the Spanish service.
The person speaking was Mr. Alan Lewis who was a member of St. Christopher’s a couple of years ago. Mr. Lewis has had a long time dream of rebuilding St. Christopher’s Church and it looks as if he’s still doing everything he can to fulfill his dream. He’s found Micheylin Millay (I’m sure I misspelled her name) from Haiti to help fund the project.
Mr. Lewis’s dream buildings includes a church, library, rest home, Episcopal University, and community center. His idea was well received from what I could tell. I talked to one woman who is behind him all the way. She’s been more than ready for a drastic change for our church for quite some time. I was told his next step is to go to the Bishop. I hope he doesn’t forget to talk this over with the rector.
The other thing I learned was the youth choir is ready to work on starting practices on time. The idea is to pay 25 cents if you’re late. Hmmm. I wonder if this will work. They want to choose their songs and start working on them. I’m ok with that. So I’ll be putting together a calendar for the dates they sing. This way we’ll be able to better prepare for the upcoming bilingual services.
Count down: Padre Mickey will be home in two days!
