Love the spiritual surprises


I am honored to have moved into a community with such great wealth in 'spiritual surprises!'

I realize I can't possibly attend everything offered by all the local churches all the time, but the fact that the invitations are there is amazing and heart warming.

Recently I attended two terrific concerts in two weeks at two different Houses of Worship.

Pastor Joe from First Lutheran in St. Helens sang and accompanied himself on the piano with brilliant songs he wrote and favorite hymns that are on a CD benefiting the children and families in the NICU unit of Doernbecher Hospital.

David Nevue played 'solo piano' in the little white Bethany Lutheran Church in Warren with music that filled the rafters and your soul. He also chose pieces from his most popular CD to benefit the church family at Bethany.

Even if you didn't get a chance to attend, you should feel proud of our neighboring communities for offering such first class events!
