Hospitality is our motto and we "celebrated the darkness" with an impromptu party on the porch by candlelight and new flashlights. A stranger ventured onto the porch with an open container of melting sherbet which we finished in quick fashion.
The week was ably led by our pastor from Houston, Texas, Robert Stutes. He spoke at the Chaplain's Chat about the uncomfortable relationship the Methodist church has had with the 'arts' which was the theme for the week.
