Today is Palm Sunday and we went to church at First United Methodist Church in Tellico Plains. We enjoyed the friendly fellowship and worship service. Going to church when out of town can be a great way to connect with other believers and to hear the message of Christ from a different perspective.

This is a great article on my alma mater Hiwassee College and how it is helping former foster children find a place to call home and to get an education. Hiwassee is setting an example of what it means to help the least of these. I am proud to be a Hiwassee Tiger!

Church At Buckner Memorial United Methodist Church

This morning we went to church on campus at Hiwassee College. Buckner UMC has been serving the community and campus for a very long time. This morning’s service was held in the Rapking Meditation Chapel which is across the hall from the main sanctuary which is much bigger. It was more intimate and allowed for an unplugged experience (other than a CD player used when the choir sang). We needed no sound system, no big screens, no frills. This was a refreshing change. Most churches these days are about how flashy they can be and how many bells and whistles they have. This service was special with people who were there to worship God and have fellowship with each other. It was a time of blessings. Thanks to Pastor Tricia for a great service.

Hiwassee College Homecoming 2013

This weekend I will be away celebrating Homecoming at Hiwassee College in Madisonville, Tennessee. I am a member of the class of 1992 and I have fond memories of this place that shaped me into the person I am today. God blessed me with the opportunity to attend there to learn about the lessons of faith, life and friendship. It is a great place of learning for students of all ages. This weekend will be a time to renew and reconnect with some great people.
