THE REV. MONTE NAMED
THE ASSOCIATION of PASTORS RETIRED IN LOVE
PASTOR OF THE YEAR
I am so proud of Monte. The Association of Pastors Retired In Love* chose him as their first Pastor of the Year. I hope you all will congratulate him in the comment box at the end of this post.
We will travel to Harrisburg today, where Monte will meet Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, and then he will open the House meeting with a prayer. Monte will then visit with the Pennsylvania State Pastor’s group, which will present him with his award.
Besides the usual plaque, Monte will receive the Association Prize Reserved In Love Award Fist, which he can raise at the Western Pennsylvania United Methodist Church Annual Conference. This award is a blinking light. When he disagrees with Conference decisions it will light up red. When he agrees it will light up green. When he thinks it’s ridiculous it will light up chartreuse, and when he thinks they should be cautious it will light up orange.
Upon receiving his award he will present a sermon titled The fool’s pride will cause his fall. He will write the talk while driving to Harrisburg, so I have to drive. I must go now. I had to pack quickly so we could be on the road by 5:00 a. m. in order to arrive in Harrisburg on time.
Before we leave Harrisburg Monte and I will do some research for my novel at the historical society.
On the way home we will stop at a ski resort where Monte and I will celebrate by snow tubing.
Have a nice April Fool’s Day.
Association of Pastors Retired In Love: APRIL
Association Prize Reserved In Love Award Fist: APRILAFOOL
Standing before God on judgment day, you may learn, the joke’s on you!
