  • Grace Notes: Small churches, big hearts

    As I write this, it's Elizabeth Weimer's birthday. I've never met her and don't know who she is, but I know July 1 is her birthday because I visited her church last Sunday night and it was in the bulletin.

    My husband and I had visited Yankeetown Community Church as guests of Barbara Arnold, whom I had never met either. She has been e-mailing me for about a year or more, inviting me to visit their church one Sunday night.

    Finally, I marked my calendar for Sunday, June 29, the night of their church's "singspiration" program, and gave Barbara my word that I'd come.
