Praying for Rain

Read an article in today's Johnson City Press, in which Christian singer, Michael W. Smith, urged people to fast and pray for rain. The article pointed to a prayer in time of drought posted Friday by the United Methodist Church and written by Taylor Burton-Edwards. According to the article:
Burton-Edwards described prayers of this nature as appeals for help and understanding in times of crises: “What do we do here, God? We don’t know. It’s too big for us to figure out."
Also in the Press this morning, another fine article about our 225th anniversary celebration this weekend. I just can't seem to keep from getting my picture in the paper. Wouldn't want any of you to think I was bashful or anything....
