RIP Gus. I'll miss your smile.

I'm so sorry.

He was also a lover of cats. He loved to tell me all about his pets.

A chuckle for the morning. These just never get old!

we need a full crowd.ALL MEMBERS NEED ATTEND

Pastor Jeff passed along this prayer written by Father Mychal Judge, OFM, a FDNY chaplain who loved his city and his work and was ultimately the first of the dead pulled from the wreckage of the World Trade Center. A great prayer for this week.

Lord, take me where you need me to go.
Have me meet the people you need me to meet.
Tell me what you need me to say.
And please, keep me out of your way.
