Each time Icome to our nation’s capital I am struck by an overwhelming sense that is difficult to put into words. Monday I made my way to Arlington National Cemetery tovisit the new grave of CH(COL) Frank Wismer III, mycommand chaplain in OIF 2006-2007. The death of adear friend and mentor, coupled with his recent burialon July 11, 2013 in the hallowed ground of Arlingtonbrings grief that defies words to express. Tuesday, Ispent the day in the Pentagon and over lunch wentdown to the Memorial Chapel that was built in thespace where the plane struck the wall once againthere are no words to express the solemnity as Iturned through the pages of letters that told abouteach of the victims. Today I was at the National GuardBureau with my State Chaplain colleagues discussingthe challenges that confront us. Tonight I had dinnerwith the State Chaplain from Ohio who I got to knowyears ago on the Iraqi-Kuwait border.This trip to Washington DC has impressedonce again a sense of reverence for what can casuallybe referred to as history. Real history is living in thiscontinuum of time and space. Real history mattersbecause it continues to shape our life and world.In a few weeks we will celebrate CovenantSunday as we mark another year in the life of theChurch of the Covenant. May we hold in reverencethe sacred trust that for 154 years has been handedfrom priest to priest and parishioner to parishioner.May we commit ourselves to be honorable stewards ofthis precious gift.Grace and peace,Dave 1

This could be either through a foodpantry concept or a periodic feeding program which can help families in need of food. We willkeep you informed of these efforts.The team wants to thank members of the congregation for their generous response to theUnited Way’s “Stuff the Bus” with school supplies. School supplies donated by our church weredelivered to the United Way and taken to all schools in USD 475 to help students who are unableto afford the supplies needed to begin the new school year. The supplies are greatly appreciatedby the schools.Our church hosted the yard sale sponsored by CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates)on August 31 in our parking lot. Members were invited to donate items which would be sold tobenefit CASA.
