Nobody needs to tell me I cannot sing, although I have many fine friends who forward this information to me on a regular basis. It is as though there was a friend-wide conspiracy trying to convince me not to sing in public. Even the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage gets in on this act.
January kicks off a year-long, sesquicentennial celebration of the Methodist Church in Chiefland. In the next several months, the First United Methodist Church will explore the changes that have taken place over the last 150 years and remember the people who have had active parts in making those changes. We are inviting former pastors to preach each month. On Jan., 9, Rev. Gene Zimmerman, pastor of our church from 1954 to 1956, will be bringing the Sunday morning sermon.
