Tinney Chapel Brings Worship Service To Whispering Pines
Tinney Chapel Conducts Worship Service For Residents Of Whispering Pines Care Center
In the absence of Rev. Sue Gross, Certified Lay Speaker Joe Dan Boyd gave the sermon, "Growing Love," based on 1 Corinthians 13 (The Love Chapter), with credit to Charles Johnson, Joe Dan's fellow journalist friend who is Pastor of Campground UMC at Townsend, TN in the Smoky Mountains. (Charles and Joe Dan worked together at Farm Journal Magazine for several years and enjoy discussing theology and/or swapping sermon ideas from time to time.)
Since today's sermon dealt primarily with love, Joe Dan kicked off his remarks by singing "The Glory Of Love," accompanying himself on the 8-string tenor ukulele.
Pat Hollingsworth, former pianist at Tinney Chapel, has also spent much time coordinating activities at Whispering Pines Care Center, and facilitated today's worship service near downtown Winnsboro.
Tinney Chapel Lay Leader Roger Schneider asked "Junior" to assist by serving as song leader for today's service.
Tinney Chapel provides worship services for Whispering Pines once each month.
