sweet dreams

By Diogenes (articles ) | Sep 15, 2004

Last night's bedtime reading was the NCCB Membership Directory for the year 2000. Page 215 makes mention of (former) bishops Kendrick Williams and Joseph Hart, who have the distinction of being Dash-2 ("because of health or other grave reason") retirees.

And from Colossians 3:23: Whatever your task, work heartily, as serving the Lord Jesus Christ...
