From the President....

Church council met on February 17. I'm proud to report that the number of activities and ministries continues to grow. The e-newsletter contains many interesting articles. I especially enjoyed reading about the visit with Pastor Tom King. Thanks to Ron and Doreen Hietsch for the update and insight. What a great way to communicate to all of us back here at MT. Olive from Florida.

We have now seen some of the talents of Vicar Jonathon and Lisa Moyer. Ongoing Ambassadors for Christ is a fantastic ministry and was a great opportunity for so many to be a part of. I know the residents and employees at Franciscan Manor truly enjoyed the time spent there. Thank You to all who helped make the weekend possible.

The Parish fellowship committee tells us to mark April 26 on our calendars for the annual wine tasting. Also, congratulations to Kelsey (I stole my husbands recipe) Pagani on the great chili. On August 10, 2008 we will celebrate the 25 year anniversary of Pastor Pingel's installation at Mount Olive.

Knowledge exists in many places…
During World War II, it was determined that people had a lot of knowledge that could be used against the U.S. by axis powers. It was information gained from conversations with service men or from their letters.
In response, the slogan "Loose Lips Sink Ships!" was tacked on bulletin boards. And the slogan was spread across the country. Today, we have something like that problem in reverse. Instead of people talking too much when it comes to what they know, many people in our congregation are talking too little. We are blessed to have so many people with talent and experience, some who share it and some who have not yet. Many resist sharing simply because they are shy, others because they don't think anyone needs them to. Well, we do need you to. Every contribution could help make MT. Olive stronger. I am asking that you consider your area of expertise and to let us know. If there is a way you can contribute, please speak up.
In this case "Loose Lips Save Ships" - and Churches.
