July 31 - To the Future

Chris Erdman's final Sunday as Senior Pastor at Davis Community Presbyterian Church,

another great Sermon and Children's Discovery Time,

with a farewell from the Choir and all --

the day

beginning with


for the

Band and

prelude before the

first service,

featuring Mike Coleman delivering a fine reading from the Gospel of John

(also read nicely by another compatriot the second time around),

Chris's heartfelt message, and

a great












Farewell, Chris --

you are loved!

Afterwards, Harriet and I make our way back to Fellowship Hall, to take a second advantage of Chris's generous book-give-away (2 multi-volume encyclopedia which test the strength of new owner).

Off we go again,
