Our church staff plus lots of volunteers are preparing a lovely service in memory of our sweet Steve.
Yesterday some of us met with Pastor Andy to review Steve's wishes.
Steve's thoughts included:
"This is the ADD generation, so it should last about an hour." (Note to guests: It may be a little longer.)
"It should be a celebration ... maybe even a roast."
"The service is not about my resume. I am not applying for a job." (I can just hear Steve saying this, and it makes me smile every time I think about it.)
"The service is not about me. It's about sharing Christ with others." (Well, a lot of the service will be about Steve. He's worth celebrating.)
As a remimder:
1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12
St. Andrew United Methodist Church, 5801 W. Plano Parkway, Plano
Reception immediately following at the church.
Children are welcome to attend the service. We will also have child care available. If you expect you'll use the nursery, please e-mail Mary Mitchell Trimble at firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday and indicate how many children and their ages.
