Around this same time, we received an invitation to join the men's prayer group on Wednesday mornings at Revival Vision Church of God. Pastor Jim is the only other full time pastor in the area that I am aware of us. For one year now, Br. Craig, Br. Joe and myself have joined this group for an hour or so of prayer each week. It has been a wonderful blessing and means of support.

The other activity that continues in Union County is the every third Saturday prayer against drugs. This rotates from Church to Church. Whereas, I am unable to come to these sessions very often due to the Saturday evening Mass in Rutledge, Br. Joe and Br. Craig have been very faithful in their attendance. We will host this event in November.

Then in November we were invited to be a part of the Ecumenical Thanksgiving Service. A good number of our folks attended. During the planning session, concern about drug and alcohol addition arose. Therefore, I helped organize a program for ministers which was held at Rutledge Baptist church on the issue. This was well attended and lead to some other gatherings.

Thus the dream of Jesus as stated in John 14, that we may all be one as He and the Father are one is moving forward. Where these relationships will lead remains the work and mystery of the Holy Spirit, but a great foundations has been established.
