Editing the Ethics of the search for the 'common good.'

     Sounds like a 'heavy' theme to endure for a week.  However, at the Methodist House we always provide for the 'common good' of our residents and friends of the porch.  The week was lead by our chaplain Dick Barton who steered us through a sea of positive activities.

     We celebrated the 4th of July with the annual rendition of the 1812 Overture with exploding paper bags followed by a party at the UM Missionary House under the new leadership of Doug & Celia Thompson.

Good food, conversation & fireworks
