Mt. Tabor Church began Memorial Day with many prayers and thanks for the goodness of our Lord to us. Our group was small, but we had a good Sunday school lesson, along the same line as the day we were celebrating, to bring all we know back to remembrance, according to St. Peter. Good to have our visitor.
Brother Ric ask all in attendance to give any testimony, story, or remembrance of our family who were veterans, now or in the past, or things we wanted to mention about them. It was a very moving time for family and friends to talk about. He then used the story of the bread and wine that Jesus partook of, in remembrance of me, ye do this.
Many, many folks came through the gates to decorate and remember their families buried there. The cemetery looked beautiful with all the pretty flowers and flags waving in the wind.
A reminder that Piland Youth Camp will begin with the senior camp, June 5-8.
