One of my favorite things about this Lent luncheon series is that I get to see so many of you who read this column. Every week as I walk through the crowd people come up to me to tell me how much they enjoy reading it. It’s really fun to hear which ones were your favorites and how you cut them out or print them to save them. Now that the Lent luncheon series is over for this year, I’ll miss that.
Even if I didn’t see you during Lent, many of you have called me, sent emails, sent letters or come up to me in the community to share what this column means to you. I have heard that you use it in your Sunday school classes, mission circles, with family members, in greeting cards, and stuck on the refrigerator. One caller from Vale told me that for some people, this column is their weekly church experience. Thank you for receiving these messages that God gives me. Your support and encouragement mean more than words can say.
I especially would like to thank the editor of the Lincoln Herald for including a faith based guest columnist in their newspaper because they don’t have to do that. I am very grateful for the opportunity to speak to God’s people every week.
I have daydreamed about getting you all together for lunch to thank you for your support of this column and have a time of fellowship. Would you like to join me?
You are invited to a covered dish lunch on Thursday May 23, 2019 at noon at Emanuel Reformed Church, 329 E. Main St. in Lincolnton 28092. We are the beautiful historic church downtown right across the street from the post office. The luncheon will be around the back in the fellowship hall. It is not necessary for you to bring a covered dish to attend but I know some of you out there are great cooks and I would love to taste your best dishes!
We want to make sure we have enough food and seats so please RSVP if you would like to come by calling me at 828-962-8196 or you can send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s have lunch!
Rev. Walker is the pastor of Emanuel Reformed Church www.emanuelreformedchurch.com
