I love your blog and every week, I find some inspiration in your suggestions. Since 've been lurking for months and rarely see any comments, I want you to know that I appreciate your work.

I'm also a lay pastor in the Presbyterian Church, USA. My little congregation is the oldest continuosly worshipping fellowship in Columbus, Ohio, USA. We celbrated our 200th anniversary last year. I know that isn't really very old (except in countries like mine and yours).

I am praying for the victims of the flood that is affecting your community. God is always faithful and will never desert your town.
