Pastor’s Blog
 
Mr. Donald DeGrieve, 65, suffered a fatal heart attack while playing
golf in Winter Haven, Florida. As his body lay covered on the 16th
green, golf course officials tried to contact his wife. A steady
stream of DeGrieve’s friends passed by from the 15th green to 17th
green tee to continue their game. “Life goes on,” said one man, “so we
had to keep going.”
 
A lonely 76 year old ex-convict walked into People’s National Bank in
Iowa City, handed a teller a note demanding two $50 bills and no more.
The Bank employee was surprised but complied. As he was leaving the
Counter, he said to the teller: “I will be in my car in the parking lot
smoking a cigarette.” That is where the police found him. “It’s a
little odd,” said the Police Sgt. Ray Mabbit. “Mr. Stewart robbed the
bank because he had no family or friends and wants to go back to the
federal prison.”
 
Just two short stories that speak of the thousands of lonely people in
this world or our indifference to them. So, this comes 24 hours in
advance, for tomorrow, July 11, is National Cheer up the Lonely Day.
Why not call an old teacher or if possible visit someone who is
lonely or take a trip to the local Nursing Home and cheer up a lonely
soul? Yes, caring for another cost effort and energy, it takes time
and sometimes is even risky. But it will bring a smile on somebody’s face
and lots of cheer in your heart. Just a thought not a sermon!
 
Shalom, Shalom!
