Bob Sorge Weekend and Connect Luncheon (March 3-5 2017)

It was a busy weekend at Faith Tab.  There was an extra service and a breakfast scheduled because Bob Sorge was visiting.  He had been at Faith Tab many times, but this was my first opportunity to hear and see him. 

I skipped the Friday night "bonfire" because I do not like driving at night much anymore.  But Peggy and I met up at my house for a fish fry from the Presbyterian Home. 

Saturday morning, I attended the breakfast which was great.  We had breakfast pizza, fruit and pastries, and everything was good.  Bob spoke and his talk was excellent.  Actually, his talk was TOO SHORT.  That is because Bob's voice box was injured during a minor surgery years ago and it is hard for him to speak, and it causes him discomfort. 
Sunday morning he spoke again during the regular morning church service.  He was excellent!  
After church, I helped Peggy with the book table.  Bob has written MANY books.  Because I helped, I was given a free book.  I picked this one because it was the topic of Bob's sermon.
After church there was a Seniors CONNECT luncheon.  Every seat was filled, and the lunch was good.  Peggy talked about a unique experience she and David had in Israel.  (meeting a Jewish art shop owner, who spoke of Jews and Christians coming together some day).
