Becky experienced what her rehab person said was the closest thing to a
miracle that she has ever experienced.
The swelling in Becky’s arms related to the lymph-edema has returned to
normal and she does not need any more rehab sessions. Though Becky was consistent in her exercises,
we also know many have been lifting her up in prayer. Thank you! She also was moved by a prayer offered by
Barry Black, the US Senate Chaplain and former Admiral in the US Navy while
attending worship at the Ocean City Tabernacle.
We Thank God for keeping Becky in peace, and for the healing in her
arms. As of this writing, only 7 more
radiation treatments to go.
On another subject, recently Mary McAlary and I attended – Walking
With: An African American Experience. It
was an excellent presentation by our District Superintendant Dr. Tracy
Bass. It will be held a second time
close by, in Chalfont. See the details
at the end of this blog. Racism is still
all too prevalent, and we as God’s people, of all people, need to love one
another and proclaim that it is truly from “one blood” that all have
been made. In reality, there is only one
race of people, the human race. To
underscore this point, I loved the following story posted on Facebook.
A 50- something year old white woman arrived at her seat on a crowded
flight and immediately didn’t want the seat. The seat was next to a “person
of color”. Disgusted, the woman immediately summoned the flight attendant
and demanded a new seat. The woman said “I cannot sit here next to this
The flight attendant said “Let me see if I can find another
seat.”After checking, the flight attendant returned and stated “Ma’am,
there are no more seats in economy, but I will check with the captain and see
if there is something in first class.”About 10 minutes went by and the
flight attendant returned and stated “The captain has confirmed that there
are no more seats in economy, but there is one in first class. It is our
company policy to never move a person from economy to first class, but being
that it would be some sort of scandal to force a person to sit next to an
UNPLEASANT person, the captain agreed to make the switch to first
class.”Before the woman could say anything, the attendant gestured to the person
of color and said, “Therefore sir, if you would so kindly retrieve your
personal items, we would like to move you to the comfort of first class as the
captain doesn’t want you to sit next to an unpleasant person.”Passengers
in the seats nearby began to applause while some gave a standing ovation.
We will pay the registration fee for anyone willing to attend. Just let us know of your interest. See information below.
