Greetings, the weekend is here again. Does time just seem to fly by to you? It sure does me. How was your week? Busy with garden stuff? Seems I hear some gardens did real well and others did not do so well.
Last weekend the pastor search committee and their families- Ronnie and Cher Rosser, Garrison and Sheridan, King and Taylor Simpson, Ian, Patrick and Stephannie Coursey, Ross, Neil and Sloan drove to Knoxville to meet with a prospective pastor. A Bro. Joseph, his wife and 3 children. So, maybe at a later date we can meet him and the family. They had a good, safe trip.
According to the calendar on September 23rd fall begins.
On September 19th is when the Johnson clan with have their special tiome together and it will be at the activities building at the church. Mark your calendars now so we don’t forget.
Bringing good eats this week were Bev Whitson with a huge cantaloupe, Curtis Coursey with those delicious yellow tomatoes, On Wednesday night bringing my supper from Judy’s were the girls Kaitlyn and Cassidy Jernigan. Kaitlyn goes back to Murray on Saturday.
Our sympathy to A.B. Willhite and family in the death of a sister Mary.
Sorry my good friend Delores Renfro has been in the local hospital again. She is back home now, but not feeling very well. Hey, hurry up and get better.
This is a true story, which has been brought back to my mind this week. In World War 1 Uncle Sam had a way of notifying you. He wanted you to join his army. It seems on the late George “Pop” Wilcutt’s farm, a family lived on a back field (and I have been in that field). His name was Henry Hutcheson. His wife was Cassie and they had 2 children. He got his letter from Uncle Sam and answered the call. I don’t know where he had to go. When my dad went I believe it was to Louisville.
Anyway, Mr. Henry didn’t pass for the service and when he got home disaster met him. Cassie had killed herself and the 2 kids. Oh me, what a ghastly homecoming. She and the kids are in the Elk Lick Cemetery. He moved I understand and later remarried. His entombment is in the Greenridge Baptist Church Cemetery.
On a note of excitement, on September 5th, which is on a Saturday, a special invitation by our pulpit committee to Bro. Jody McGaha and family from North Carolina to come to Elk Lick fora trial sermon at 5:30-7 p.m. The pastor search committee, including the youth group will meet at the Rosser house for pizza, fellowship and getting acquainted. Then at 7 p.m. a possible church wide ice cream social.
Sunday school at 10 a.m. followed by preaching at 11 a.m. followed by an afternoon pot luck meal and other events are also being planned. Come out, meet and greet.
See ya next time.
