Our service today was made very special by the presence of Reverend Don Waldon and Muriel Cluett, a centenarian as of today.
During his reflection Reverend Don outlined the astonishing rise of Christianity in the midst of the evils perpetrated by the soldiers of the Holy Roman Empire. Starting with Jesus and his twelve disciples, by the fourth century, Christianity was recognized as an officially-sanctioned religion of “first rank” within that same empire.
Pondering the many woes of our present world, Reverend Don suggested that small acts of kindness on the part of each of us do and will make a difference.
Exemplifying this kindness is Muriel Cluett who turned 100 years old today. Muriel continues to make a difference by knitting prayer shawls for those who are struggling through tough times, for celebrating milestones and for those receiving recognition for the contributions they have made in bettering our world.
Thank you, Reverend Don and Muriel for wise words and wise actions.
