Virginia Burgher attended the community film with Gaylon and Laela Van Zee Sunday afternoon, held at the MHS theatre. The film was entitled “October Baby.” When Hannah collapsed during a college play, she was rushed to the hospital, where medical tests revealed the underlying cause—trauma suffered at birth. Soon afterward, she discovered another shocking fact: she was adopted after a failed abortion attempt. Bewildered and angry, Hannah went in search of her birth mother. It was a very emotional film, and a powerful story of love and forgiveness. The film was based on actual facts.

Johnny wanted to play on Sunday afternoon, but he knew his father, the pastor, had a long sermon planned. So the boy sneaked up to the pulpit and stole the last two pages of the sermon.
While the pastor was delivering the sermon, he got to the last page, reading, “And Adam said to Eve…” and then stopped. He turned the page around and searched the pulpit, realizing the rest of the sermon was gone.
He repeated the last line, thinking he could remember the rest, but he was at a loss. He tried again, “And Adam said to Eve…” Still nothing.
Finally, after giving it one more try, the pastor gave up and came clean. “And Adam said to Eve—oh, I don’t know how to go on. There must be a leaf missing somewhere.”
“One thing I do know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.” ~ Albert Schweitzer
