Are you sure Amicalola Falls is the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail? Seems as though I remember a certain southern governor who follow the trail all the way to Argentina. LOL. With 10 grands, I will have to try your numbering system

"Wunderbare!" Which is almost my entire vocabulary in German.
From one old retired liberal preacher to another, preach on brother!!! Peace

Dear Parson, Yes, we are still here and it is 9:35 pm on Saturday evening. I hope you had your sermon prepared just in case the rapture didn't happen. Maybe it was postponed due to lack of interest. Have a good day. Peace, Curtis

Parson, We were told in seminary that one of our jobs was "to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable." This may be one of the times that the rule does not apply. Peace, Curtis

Dear Parson, A Presiding Elder, opps, District Superintendent once said to me, "God keeps the clergy humble, the congregation keeps them poor." But, for a brief moment, you only thought you earned your paycheck. Any way, I think you do. Peace, Curtis

Dear Parson, I'm glad you're back. I pray the vacation was good, relaxing and refreshing. Much happened while you were gone but we muddled through. Thanks for the encouraging sermon. Peace, Curtis
Dear Parson, Enjoy the time with Ms. Parson. Keep your windshield clean. My Ms. Parson and I will be heading for San Francisco in about a month. Peace, Curtis

Dear Parson, When I was in seminary, I remember seeing a bumper sticker which said "Wouldn't it be great if schools had all the money they needed and the Air Force had to have a bake sale to buy a bomber!" Thanks as always. Peace, Curtis

Blessings to you!!! And as a former D. S, of mine would say "May your tribe increase!" Peace, Curtis
Dear Questing Parson, as I pondered this entry and your advice, I wondered "If he waited until September, would he be considered an 'effective pastor' according to current hysteria about clergy effectiveness which is gripping the UMC? Peace, Curtis

Parson, There you go again being one step ahead of me. Yesterday, as I was leaving church, the pastor asked me if I were going to the delegates' meeting for our conference, I informed him of my exalted status by saying "No!" Then he asked me to go in his place, to which I said, "What part of 'No' do you not understand." And to think I almost came to your church, I would have enjoyed see you "dash." Peace, Curtis

Parson, I could not have said it better.
Dear Parson, "lest we forget" and let us pray, work and strive to make "Never again" a reality. Peace, Curtis

Dear Parson, Thanks for the good laugh this morning and making me remember when I was at the Perkins School of Theology at SMU, the rapture was big talk at the Dallas Theological Seminary (across town from SMU). Hal Lindsey's books were all the rage there. The insurance agents who worked both campuses complained about how the students at Dallas Theological wanted the policies to pay off in case of rapture and to specific beneficiaries. I told them I was available to be a beneficiary. Thanks for you interest in the rapture! Peace, Curtis

Dear Questing Parson, Thank you for reminding us to thank those who have taught us, encouraged us, believed in us and sent us on our way to be good, kind and just. Peace, Curtis

Dear Parson, As one old parson to another, "Thanks." You said it better than I could. You reminded me of why I enjoyed so much "filling in" last Sunday on a circuit where they had asked for me again. Peace, Curtis

Dear Parson, Remind Erin to make time for herself outside of and away from the church. She needs "to be good to herself." Peace, Curtis
Toggle Commented Apr 14, 2010 on A Date For the Reverend Ms? at Questing Parson
Dear Parson, Thanks. This should be e-mailed to all clergy, especially the younger ones. When my wife and I were first married and because we both had hectic jobs, we kept Thursday evening as our night. I told the congregation I was not available except for emergencies and, if they came to parsonage, I would probably greet them in my pajamas. Funny, almost no one minded or showed up and the church survived. Peace, Curtis

Dear Parson, A vow made, remembered and kept. An honorable man. Many of us in ministry have witnessed such love, honor and devotion. Thank you for sharing. Peace, Curtis A. Grissett

Dear Parson, I meant to comment yesterday. Your last several posts have been especially meaningful to me. Regarding this post. The poet Cowper said "God works in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform." Jesus said, "The angels rejoice in heaven in the return of one of God's own." (my paraphrase) I say, "To Gob be the glory. Amen." Thank you. Peace, Curtis
