Today is Friday, June 8th, 2007; Karen's Korner #1080
Clarion's annual celebration, Festival in the Park, will be held tomorrow (Saturday). Among other things is our parade which begins to wind its way through Clarion at 10 a.m.
One of the entries will be our Marys and Marthas (M & Ms) walking (and some golf cart riders) wearing M & Ms outfits. Our mission statement is to "be the hands and hearts for Jesus" as we "serve God by loving others".
Because we are known as M & Ms for short, we are making small bags of M & Ms candies and will hand them out as we walk. We are adding a "blessing" to each bag. Chris Lousias took on the task of the treasure hunt to find blessings from the Bible. We are making up 1200 bags; she dug out 600 of God's promises and photocopied them one time!
Here is a sample which people will receive as we walk. May you be blessed by at least one of them:
God is your shield.
May the Lord bless you with His peace.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Plant seeds of goodness.
God is merciful and He hears your prayers.
The Lord be with your spirit; grace be with you.
Be kind to EVERYONE!
