What does wisdom look like? Do you know it when you see it? In this second week of our Wisdom Series, we will be looking at Psalm 1.
( http://bible.oremus.org/?ql=238151196) Our worship will be abbreviated so that we may move right into our semi-annual meeting. At the end of the meeting we will recognize Homer Kenison as he retires from all his years of service in dealing with the church's finances. After the meeting there will be a reception in the Vestry to express our thanks to Homer.
See you Sunday,
