From the "blue room" the cast of Apostlelot says goodbye for the summer.
Tom (the Knight) and Andrew (the Page) have tirelessly performed for Apostle's youth during the Sunday School hour this year. Lines have been learned and plays have walked children through moral and spiritual conflict. Every child sighed with sadness when they were told Apostlelot stories would end for the summer.Truly, Knight and Page have been an inspiration to many (including Mimi and Grandad who have sat in on a few delightful performances). I'm telling you, folks, we have some talent in this family, only to be outdone by God's gift of giving. Bravo, Andrew and Tom! I am sure your crowns will be many.
Tom has used his long-running talent for God's glory and we agree he is a natural on the stage. The children love him, and when walking down the church halls with him, I often hear a child whisper, "Look, look, there goes the Knight!"
Andrew is graduating to the middle school group next year. He is so loved and effective as Page, that all have agreed he should come back to the kingdom for an encore next year! BRAVO ANDREW, BRAVO!
What a treat it has been to watch you give back the talents God has given you.
I know Mike gives his talent to run a charitable golf tournament. Mary, gives her time and talent to many homeroom and elementary school programs. Kim, to decorating and taking pictures at school functions. Molly is also a leader on the Children's School board and Shannon gives countless hours to Ford's little league ball team as assistant coach. Kristin and Brian, as well, are busy with ball clubs and the many other interests Keegan and Aidan are involved in. I mention this just to touch on a few of your endeavors.
I say this to support each of you. Your children and others you touch through them will long remember what great parents you are, and maybe one day, they will emulate the care and love you show.
