All-Saints Church in Canonsburg, PA will be hosting a one-day Food Festival on Friday September 28th, with 100% of the proceeds going to help victims of the Greek fires.  I'll be there for part of the day, but if anyone in the area can, stop by and help support them.

(As an aside - I love people who write about the victims of the Greek Fire (proper noun) instead of Greek fire (the recent blazes that were raging in Greece).  Greek Fire hasn't been around for centuries, and better yet we don't know how many people it victimized... Support the victims of Greek Fire!)

"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Thanks, cleveland.
Now I must figure how to be in two places at one time - 100 miles apart.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

I'm sorry to have created this dilemma.  But even if you can't make it, spread the word to people you think would be inclined to do so (since you're local and all that).

I'll probably be there for about an hour, maybe a bit more... I'm supposed to have lunch with Fr George (of All Saints Church), so you may see me there with the priest.
