’Twas the night before Christmas

December 24, 2019 Linda Brendle 0

As a kid, December 24 and not the 21 seemed like the longest night of the year. The day was busy with running to the store for some forgotten item, wrapping just one more package, and cooking.

What your pastor gives up

Pastor Appreciation Day was last month, and I pretty much let it slide by. I told myself that I let Pastor Jason know on a regular basis how much I appreciate him, but something happened on Sunday that I couldn’t let pass without notice. […]

Plenty to do in Emory

November 12, 2019 Linda Brendle 0

Many people don’t like the idea of small town life. “There’s nothing to do!” they cry. That might be true if they want first-run movies, Broadway-style stage performances, world class theme parks, or five-star dining. But if they can be content with fun, heart-warming events shared with warm-hearted, friendly people, Emory just might be the place. […]
