CHLC family and friends,
This coming Sunday, June 13, is the Third Sunday
after Pentecost. Weather permitting, we will
gather outside, on the east parking lot for
our service, so remember to bring your own chair
if you wish! As always, metal chairs will be
available for those who need them. I am hoping
that the weather cooperates since the scripture
has to do with trees and bushes and creation!
It will be a wonderful setting.
Christian brother, Jim Frashier, continues to
transition from this earthly life to eternal
life, and we pray that he and his family know
and experience the presence of the Good Shepherd
walking through this dark valley with them.
As soon as I hear any news of his passing and
of arrangements, I will share them with you
and I will be heading to Colorado for vacation
from June 14-24. This is a "reschedule"
of a trip we were supposed to make last year
to officiate at a wedding on the top of Mt.
Vail which was relocated to Mirror Lake because
of Covid19 (sorry, Holly and Travis). It is
also an early 30th Wedding Anniversary trip.
Our anniversary is August 10. We will visit
with friends we have who now live in the northern
part of Denver and in Ft. Collins and explore
some of the sights like the Rocky Mountain National
Park and Estes Park, Colorado Springs and Pike's
Peak and other local attractions.
June 20, The Fourth Sunday after Pentecost,
Pastor Cindy Hershberger will be preaching and
presiding in my place. We have gotten to know
Cindy this last year as she has returned to
Columbus and has become active again with Clinton
Heights. We pray for her as well as she will
be leaving us toward the end of July to participate
in a hospital chaplaincy program outside of
The service on June 20 will be indoor, and will
be live-streamed on Facebook and shared by video
upload as usual. The video might not be ready
as quickly as usual, but it will be emailed
