52nd Annual Church Sale Today

"You're in charge of the weather Pastor Ted." That's what my church members jokingly tell me when we talk about the annual church sale. The 52nd annual consignment auction is today.

I better pray real hard. When I woke up this morning, it was raining outside. A look at the radar map suggests the rain will move away by the time we start at 9:30am, but then more clouds are heading our way.

The church sale is always a fun time for our church and community. Most of the stuff that's bought and sold is junk, but there are always a few treasures to find--and the food and fellowship can't be beat. The kids love the day because we bring out two rides created by the late Howard Hodgson--the Leapin' Lizard (a large wagon with uneven wheels, which bounces the kids up and down) and the Lolly Pop Trolly (a train of barrells pulled by a 4-wheeler).

Lord, it's your church and your sale. You're in charge of the weather.
