Sunday, we said an official goodbye(???) to Dianne Williams, our office manager and church secretary with a minimal amount of tears(tongue in cheek) at the 10:30 worship service. It was followed by a beautiful, bountiful luncheon in the Parish Hall. Ladies, you outdid yourselves with the help of a few guys. You noticed the question marks? It is my understanding that Dianne is going to help us out from home for a while. Will let you know more about the office as I learn what the game plan is but,Chuthere will not be anyone in the office for regular hours.
This coming Sunday, the16th, Fr. Michael Long will be out of town but Fr. Ben Long will be with us. Fr. Michael Long is going to West Virginia for the retirement of their Bishop who was his curate 40 years ago. He said it would be the last time for him to be gone this year.
We have been missing a few people: Lee and Linda Myers, out with covid but tested negative on Monday and Abbey Major and family, out with a bout with colds and followed with the flu, and Ellen Lee with Covid who is testing negative now--whew, please keep ALL in your prayers.

A Blurb from Susan for our Zoomies: "Hi--it's Susan and I goofed this past Sunday. I signed into the wrong router at church (we have 2 now), and the other one lost my connection halfway through service. Otis fixed it, and let me know how to sign in using my laptop in the future. I am hoping that my gaming laptop is providing a better experience(faster CPU). Also, to warn you, both Father Michael and Otis will be away from us this coming Sunday, so please pray for both Cranz and me as we try to cover all the music and Zoom activities!"
I might add that I am truly grateful to know Epiphany has more than 1 or 2 "techs", and that they are jumping in to give it a go.......it's ALL FOREIGN TO ME, but thank you dear friends.
