GRATEFUL LIVING CONSIDERED

By Rene | October 22, 2021

What does it mean to have a grateful heart?  To be grateful for God’s gifts and blessings in my life is to have a heart full of gratitude.  There’s a catchy phrase – an attitude of gratitude – that comes to mind.  As Christians this should be our disposition instead of being critical and complaining. …

PLEASE BE ADVISED

By Rene | October 18, 2021

We regularly see many woodland creatures on our property – wild turkey, deer and raccoons, for example.  This week we’ve been seeing a new visitor around the church – coyotes.  The presence of wildlife is making our area a good place to hunt by these coyotes for right now.  Please be advised!  Normally, coyotes will…

CHAPLAIN KAPAUN COMES HOME!

By Rene | September 10, 2021

If you’ve ever visited Father’s office, there’s a picture on the wall of a man in uniform.  That man is Father Emil Kapaun who died in a prisoner of war camp in Korea.  Father Kapaun was a priest of the Diocese of Wichita and served heroically as an army chaplain.  Kapaun-Mt Carmel High School in…

THINGS WE FIND IN BOXES

By Rene | September 3, 2021

Our garage sale this weekend sees all sorts of things arrive in boxes.  “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure”, so the saying goes.  One treasure we found was a birth certificate for an individual that might not have been intended for giving away.  We assume the individual is deceased because they were born in…
