Residents welcome interim administrator

The Sunday worship January 27 was led by Rev. Brian Jones, Miller First Presbyterian Church. He led singing, accompanied by Sue Jones on piano. He read scripture, John 15:12-17, and gave a message on “The Ministry of Love.” He emphasized that the way God loves us sometimes is through the love of other people, and gave an example through a story, “Ten Cents,” from the book, “Chicken Soup for the Soul.”
