A Dickens Christmas

 

A group of retired pastors gathered at Shady Maple... and there were a number of fun moments during the program. Jeff Johnson walked the group through a detailed look at A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens compared to the birth narrative of Jesus as found in the Gospels. It was great learning more about Dickens’ classic from Jeff dressed in period attire.

2017 Southwest LLC

 

A quick look at the Southwest LLC in southwest PA. Besides their usual time of updating each other about what's going on in their families, they also share about what is happening in their church families. They then spent time together talking about the book of the month, in this case, Why Johnny Can't Preach, which the author says is due to present day preachers lack of good reading and also good composition skills. As they do each month, they all went out to eat, but this time three spouses joined the fellowship.

Happy Birthday Willie Earl Anderson

 

The congregation of Love Unlimited, Co-Pastor Dorothy Anderson, members of the Williamsport community, and the Anderson family gathered to celebrated Pastor Willie Earl Anderson’s 70th birthday. The birthday celebration was a bit of a roast, as family members and friends shared funny stories about Pastor Willie but also some very fond memories. Susan Mahserjian-Smith (member of the church) and Love Unlimited member Beatrice Gamble along with many other members of the church family worked together to create the celebration. Pastor Willie closed the evening by thanking everyone for making this the best birthday of his life.
