Weekly Bits for July 10,2014


From David

I used to faithfully read the comics in the newspaper and one in particular, Kudzu by Doug Marlette. In my three ring binder of memorable quotes to live by, I enshrined a quote from this comic strip. It was spoken by an auto mechanic. Perhaps you remember the episode?

"Life is like a tire iron----

It's real hard.

So it feels mighty good

when you stop beating yourself

Upside the head with it."


----If you never look back, never second guess yourself, never switch on the self-critic......these words may be meaningless. If you have been hard on yourself, perhaps these words will help you to lighten up.

Volunteers Needed for Community Supper this Summer


It takes many willing and skillful hands to prepare, serve and cleanup from each community supper. This is not a once-in-a-year or once-in-a-while activity. It takes a sustained commitment each week. In the summer, because of vacations and other seasonal activities, it is much more difficult to get an adequate number of people on board to make each supper happen. I still have openings for the month of July. Step up and help your fellow church members and community members to continue the tradition.

From Dwight

Whoever turned in the Innovera replacement ink cartridges to the office for recycling last week, thank you.  I have four unopened black ink cartridges (which replace HP23) I would be happy to give you in exchange for the empties when you are done.  Call me at 899-9759 and I will get them to you.  Dwight Schenk
