We'd not visited Elmira Open Bible before and chose to do so this morning. We found friends of BreZaak, a friendly body of believers who truly know, love and care for one another, vibrant worship and a challenging message. It's awe-inspiring to see the same spirit of love and community at work in big, small and medium expressions of Christ's church.
This is the neighbor's sign at the edge of the church's lot.
If "The Pump," in Springfield can be a yummy restaurant, it seems only fair "The Station," in Elmira can be a full-service beauty salon.
Where else can you get a cut, curl, lube, oil and filter?
We drove around Elmira - pop 2600.
We drove to Veneta and tried to find the bird farm we house sat our first summer of marriage over thirty-four years ago. We have become THOSE people. The ones who drive their kids to old stomping grounds, only to discover they can't locate the grounds as it's changed in the past 3 decades. ::snort::
We enjoyed the morning at church and driving around and discussing the type of town where we'd like to live. We like small towns. We like a bit of quirky. We like farming communities. We'd like to find Hardin, MT in Alaska.
....and then the Falcons lost. Seahawks in 2018.
