Here are a few pictures taken at our Valentine gathering. You can click on images to enlarge. We had a real good turn out and a nice evening was enjoyed by all.
As for news from the Board, the Annual Meeting of 2014 was an orderly event, which accomplished the necessary business of our church. We thank Joan for putting together a near flawless 2013 Annual Report. Please take note of forthcoming corrections, however, so that it may be, as desired, a dependable and reliable resource of our parish community. Also we welcome Patty as a new board member, taking Paul’s seat.
Upcoming for Valentine’s Day is planned a get together at a local restaurant for fellowship. Stay tuned for further updates. Thoughts of the water problem have been exchanged at the recent meeting, as suggested by Mel. As a complicated situation, don’t expect quick action. Also a soup supper would make a wonderful excuse for a fund raiser, and we will be continuing this discussion as well.
Maybe the sunshine of Montana is nursing my Vitamin D deficiency so well that I am unusually up beat at the moment. I can’t help thinking, however, that this will be a great year in Fremont County. Already Chinook breezes of the New Year are portending sweet thoughts of spring.
Marcia Little ,
The wind has been blowing steadily for the past several weeks with gusts on occasion upwards of 35 to 45 miles per hour. In fact one day I didn’t know if I’d be able to open the car door.
Wind is a blessing on a hot humid summer day but in the winter months it can and does make it bitterly cold with wind chills below zero.
Do you realize that on one has ever seen the wind? We’ve only seen it’s effects on leaves, snow, sand, dirt or kite flying. The same can be said of the winds of cultural change that blow through every society. James states, “don’t let the winds that howl and toss you to and fro,” or as Paul says in Ephesians 4:14 “that henceforth be no more children, tossed about and carried about with every wind of doctrine by cunning and crafty men, who wait to deceive us.”
As Christians we have an anchor and that anchor is secured in our faith that is established in Jesus Christ. We shouldn’t allow the winds of society’s attitudes to move or shake us like a reed in the wind, but instead like a rock that is weathered but not moved, let the Holy Spirit be our constant and ever present guide that keeps us grounded, upright, and unmovable in any circumstance or situation.
