Cheeseburger (and more) in Paradise
Some churches give you a little gold star for attendance. In Southwest Florida, they give you a huge starfish to wear.
Julie and I spent last week Tuesday to Tuesday with some good friends from church on Estero Island (Ft Myers Beach). They graciously invited us to join them in their condo and to experience the Gulf coast joys of boating, swimming, sea-dooing and golfing. The weather was exceptionally perfect. It never hampered our excursions into daily fun. Did I mention eating?
Last Sunday we attended "Chapel by the Sea," a Presbyterian church. This unique church is decorated in the motif of a ship---the pulpit looks like the bow of a ship, the cross is a mast, the baptismal font looks like a giant sea shell and the windows are stained-glass portals. The Rev. David Uhl spoke on the symptons, causes and cures of "burn out."
Tanned, refreshed and carrying home a boatload of sea shells, we're back.
