Meals for Marion!
Here’s the opportunity you’ve been looking for to show off your cooking skills and show your support. A group is being formed to provide some meals (as needed) for Marion Field McKenna and her family. A sign-up sheet is on the round table or call Joylou Mullis at 770-267-5830 or 770-364-1058.
I continue to make good progress in my recovery from a full knee replacement. The injury occurred over 40 years ago and the joint finally gave out and had to be replaced. I met with the surgeon last Thursday and got a very positive review so it’s now up to me to diligently engage in physical therapy. Everything I have been told is true! It is painful and slow.
All that being said, I anticipate my return to ministry on Sunday, the 26th of January. I am looking forward to being with all of you for the Annual Parish Meeting and growing together in 2014. I am so grateful for all your prayers and many cards and calls I have received. They have meant so much to me! Being stuck inside for almost three weeks has given me a strong dose of cabin fever and I am eager to get back to work and life.
Please know you have been in my prayers.
We welcome Rev. Doug Coil back this Sunday, January 19, as our Supply Priest. We appreciate Fr. Coil being with us again while Fr. Alan is recovering from knee surgery.
