|Hot Water or the lack of it by animal|
It was brought to my attention we had no hot water SO on Sunday, Jimmy , Arnel and myself found the gas turned off. A simple fix and re-light the hot water heater. NO, it will not light. We looked and it appears to have been installed in 1998 SO we need a new hot water heater,
Wow, I never thought I would want to get into Hot Water,,,
If someone has a spare? OR $410.00 ...

|The Organ by animal|
Pastor Jacobsen found this quote and I thought it was worth sharing!
This is a quote from Honore de Balzac (1799-1850)
"The Organ is in truth the grandest, the most daring, the most magnificent of all instruments invented by human genius. It is a whole orchestra in itself. It can express anything in response to a skilled touch. Surely it is in some sort a pedestal on which the soul poises for a flight forth into space, essaying on her course to draw picture after picture in an endless series, to paint human life, to cross the Infinite that separates heaven from earth? And the longer a dreamer listens to those giant harmonies, the better he realizes that nothing save this hundred-voiced choir on earth can fill all the space between kneeling men and a God hidden by the blinding light of the sanctuary. The music is the one interpreter strong enough to bear up the prayers of humanity to heaven, prayer in its omnipotent moods, prayer tinged by the melancholy of many different natures, colored by meditative ecstasy, upspringing with the impulse of repentance--blended with the myriad fancies of every creed. Yes. In those long vaulted aisles the melodies inspired by the sense of things divine are blent with a grandeur unknown before, are decked with new glory and might. Out of the dim daylight, and the deep silence broken by the chanting of the choir in response to the thunder of the Organ, a veil is woven for God, and the brightness of His attributes shines through it."
from The Art of Organ Building by George Audsley

|Organ issues - Updated by JimS|
We suffered a failure of some leather components that were installed about 55 years ago. Because of this the pipe organ is temporarily not working. We are confident that the funds will be found to repair this and restore the wonderful sounds of our historic Moller organ to our Sunday service.
