Moving Day

The Sanctuary/ Auditorium of our church

is undergoing renovation, and last Sunday was the last time we were going to have worship services there, until the renovations are done. First to go were the rows of chairs. ( They are going to be replaced with pews... cushioned pews, one hopes . I have plenty of er, cushioning around the mid section, but I can honestly say that I have a "bony a$$ " , which doesn't like sitting on hard wood seats for very long.. )

Everyone was encouraged to bring tools, flat bed trucks; anything they could think of to help with the removal and transporting of the chairs to a designated warehouse. The chairs are going to be sent by container to Ghana, where they will be utilized in the/a church(es) there

Here's what it said in the bulletin :


As part of the month, we will have a special service project for families of all ages TODAY, immediately after the potluck meal. Bring your 7/16 inch wrench. We will be pulling up the chairs in the auditorium and loading them in containers for Ghana! Don’t miss this great opportunity to share in a special time of service together.

heave ho, guys.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention there was a Pot Luck Lunch. I still have to wrap my mind around "lunch" being called "dinner" in these parts. And "dinner" being called "supper". In Malaysia, supper was something you ate when you were hungry AFTER dinner.

Acts 9:31(NIV)

"Then the church throughout Judea, Galilee
and Samaria enjoyed a time of peace.
It was strengthened; and encouraged
by the Holy Spirit, it grew in numbers,
living in the fear of the Lord."

Ok, here's the deal. Pews are overrated, unless they have cushions. I'm Catholic, and I prefer chairs over Pews any day of the week.
