Gospel, John 6:60-6960 After hearing it, many of his followers said, 'This is intolerable language. How could anyone accept it?'
61 Jesus was aware that his followers were complaining about it and said, 'Does this disturb you?
62 What if you should see the Son of man ascend to where he was before?
63 'It is the spirit that gives life, the flesh has nothing to offer. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life.
64 'But there are some of you who do not believe.' For Jesus knew from the outset who did not believe and who was to betray him.
65 He went on, 'This is why I told you that no one could come to me except by the gift of the Father.'
66 After this, many of his disciples went away and accompanied him no more.
67 Then Jesus said to the Twelve, 'What about you, do you want to go away too?'
68 Simon Peter answered, 'Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the message of eternal life,
69 and we believe; we have come to know that you are the Holy One of God.'
This is the word of the Lord,
Praise be his name.
Yesterday Aug 25, 2012 was the 8th and last summer picnic at
I have been involved all 8 years and have enjoyed it so much.
It is a lot of hard work.
Sisters, associates, friends and many of the local town folk help to make this a wonderful experience.
But the sisters are ultimately responsible for the picnic and it is getting beyond their capacity to carry it off.
We will all miss the experience of seeing folks for all over the world who come back for this homecoming.
All of the items I made for the Country Store sold.
I was bidding on a beautiful painting and frame but it went beyond what I was prepared to pay.
That is okay.
It is for a great cause for sure.
