  • When it comes to serving at my church, I have two jobs.
    As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a communion server. I’m also emcee for the monthly senior ministry events, dinners and such.
    With a microphone in hand I quiet them down, tell a few senior-related jokes, dismiss the people at the tables to go get their food and introduce featured guests.
    Sometimes I refill cups of iced tea or clear plates away.
    Basically, I just show up and try not to mess things up so badly that God can’t fix it.

  • When it comes to bulbs we don’t always meet with consistent success. And, before you blame the chipmunks, the girl who mows the grass or the bulb company for their lack-luster performance, consider some of the other factors that influence how well flowering bulbs flower.  
    Sunlight; crowded bulbs; pre-mature removal of foliage the previous season; or a winter rest period that wasn’t cold enough or long enough may play a role in poor performance.
