Summer, 2012 has been hot, dry... and a lot of fun. Thank you for the many invitations to join you as you celebrate, educate and recreate. New Providence Presbyterian Church pastor, James Byrd, invited me to join the congregation and community in a time of prayer for our state and nation on Sunday, July 1. It was an honor to pray for local, state and national leaders as we face many difficulties. Thank you, New Providence, for including me in your inspiring service.
