The Power of Vision           6th Sunday of Easter           Pastor Pat Mecham Acts 16: 9-15    May 22, 2022       John 14: 23-29 Isn’t VISION a funny word?  I have an insurance card in my wallet that shows that I have “Vision Insurance.”  In other words, I can get my eyes examined and receive eye care without it costing me a fortune.  We use the word “vision” to talk about seeing physical things with our eyes, then we turn around and say that someone…

At the end of the year, any quilts/lap blankets/shawls, that have been made, will be distributed to those in the congregation who might have a need…

Time to Retire

Well, my SSPC family, it is getting to be time for me to retire. I turn 69 in August, and, while some pastors stay “in the harness” well into their later years, I am certain that this is the right time for me. Your generosity in giving me an extra two weeks of vacation every year has made it possible to spend more time with our grandkids—thus enabling me to postpone retirement for a few years. I plan to stay…
