On Sunday, August 15, we hosted what has become our annual potluck picnic for everyone involved in The King’s Jubilee at our home in Souderton. Only about 70 people were here in the rain. Becky Glykeria Pietronuto attended via telephone. She called Constantine and his phone got passed around to various people for about an hour. I say “only 70” because I know of at least that many more people who are involved in one way or another and couldn’t make it. Holy Ascension had a Baptism that afternoon, so that meant the McGraws couldn’t come. That’s 11 people right there. We grilled a turkey, a boneless pork loin, hot dogs, hamburgers, chorizos and mini meat loaves on the Weber Kettle. There was a full array of salads, vegetables, desserts, fruit, wine and iced tea. We were just a little short on beer. It rained or drizzled on and off, but the kids had fun popping the bubbles coming out of the bubble machine on the balcony.
Unfortunately, because of the weather, we did not have a time with everyone in one place to discuss the ministry and future vision, like last year. But everyone tells me that they had a good time. I know I did.
Mark your calendar now for next year’s picnic on Saturday, August 20, in Souderton, God willing.
