What's So Great About an Age-Integrated Church?

At our church, we have no Sunday school classes, we have no youth groups, and we have no senior's groups. We all worship together, sing psalms together, pray together, take Communion together, and eat lunch together. Then we often go to someone's house for more fellowship together. It has created a wonderful and unique culture. Sights like the following are commonplace.
Isn't it rare, precious and beautiful?

He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
~Proverbs 13:20

The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness.
~Proverbs 16:31

Dear Mrs. Canady reads to little Jonathan

Burt has 4 children of his own, but he's always holding somebody's baby!
The young men are always helping with the little ones!

Jacob and Jo-nathan!

How Does He Do That?

An Adventure in Tennessee

As we were driving along we came to this beautiful spot where the road actually goes right through the middle of Beaver Dam Creek...

when we noticed that a huge tree had fallen and was blocking our way...

Along came another some men in another car and a man in a pickup truck who stopped to help Burt and Philip remove the tree. They grunted and they tugged...

and they pulled the tree down!

and this was our reward on the other side!

Readying the Garden for Next Spring

Our garden has been cleared of most of the summer plants. The few remaining plants are the okra, sweet potatoes, peanuts, and some pumpkins. We are blessed to live next door to a family with horses. They provide us with all the manure that we can use. So, Jacob made a big pile next to the garden. Tricia Ann and I spread it over the cleared plots and Philip tilled it all in nicely. Then he limed it and planted a cover crop of rye. The spring plants should be happy!

Fall Garden Preparations

Tricia Ann has started some transplants for our fall vegetable garden. She makes her own soil blocks and sets them under grow lights on our back porch.

What do you do on a rainy day at summer's end?
Why you clean up your garden!

Labor Day 2007

Here is a video I just finished of our trip to the lake for Labor Day. Actually, we changed the oil in the boat on Labor Day. This is really the day after. The actual "holiday" saw the lake jam-packed with boats and PFD's...I mean PWC's. The next day we had the lake to ourselves.

Dad did all this with a hurt Hmm, I wonder why he could barely move the next day.
