What a moving morning it was watching my favorite Sunday TV program, the CBS Sunday Morning Show. Our church has a tradition of about 10 years now of going to Harmon and Jeanie's farm on the first Sunday after Labor Day to kick off the new Sunday School classes. We have potluck brunch at 10 am with a service. Our church is without a pastor right now and no interim was available so Jeanie, my mother-in-law, had the service laid out and had programs printed. It was a wonderful service led by some of our youth. The one thing our church is known for and that is to have no choir and not very good singers. Luckily, on this September 11 Sunday, Jeanie had America the Beautiful slated for the first verse only. And it all cracked us up outside under their beautiful 40 year old maple shade trees, that we didn't even have Nema Cockrill to lead us. Paul and Nema are hard working and volunteering Presbyterians who can sing. We made it without Nema but it wasn't pretty because we sounded like row, row, row your boat because we were off rhythm. Cecilia and I loved it, we were standing in the back row cracking up! It was a fun day with all the games Jeanie had slated and the social time was fun with all the great food. A big thanks to them for having our church family over for over a decade!
