Happily I have been involved with Sunday Fellowship since 1995. The experience has been part of my spiritual growth. Many of you have not attended the twice a month service held at four o’clock. Let me tell you about it. We sit in a semi-circle facing a small altar. The first bell brings the group to order. Someone lights the candle and we sing a song. A second bell rings for a time of silence. Then everyone gets up and passes the peace. The leader asks a question related to time of year, an upcoming holiday or it will lead to the day’s Bible message. A simplified version from the Bible is read by two or three readers then discussed. We sing again and share joys and concerns. A game or creative activity takes place.
I would like to share with you a meaningful experience that occurred six years ago at the memorial service for my husband John Holt. Sunday Fellowshippers were invited. At an appropriate time during the service Brian approached the casket, placed his hand on it and in a loud, clear voice said, “I love John.” The group led in the closing song Go Now In Peace. It was memorable. All the members of Sunday Fellowship are my dear friends.
