Colonial

Fort Parker was filled with Colonial Period characters over this past weekend, from hunters, trappers, farmers, craftsmen, merchants, voyagers and town folk, along with women of various backgrounds. There were also soldiers dressed in French, Spanish, American and British uniforms. The group putting on the event were called The 18th Century Society of Texas and has appeared at the fort for the past three years. Shown in the picture is another group of performers called the Victorian Fencing Society of Dallas, demonstrating fencing techniques. Check out more pictures from the event inside.

The Lord's Day

"By tradition handed down from the apostles which took its origin from the very day of Christ's Resurrection, the Church celebrates the Paschal mystery every seventh day, which day is appropriately called the Lord's Day or Sunday." The day of Christ's Resurrection is both the first day of the week, the memorial of the first day of creation, and the "eighth day," on which Christ after his "rest" on the great sabboth inaugurates the "day that the Lord has made," the "day that knows no evening." The Lord's Supper is its center, for the whole community of the faithful encounters the risen Lord who invites them to his banquet. (John 21:12; Luke 24:30)

Shepherd Sayings Feb. 16, 2017

Jesus said, “You are the salt of earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled by men.” (Matt. 5:13)
How can salt lose its saltiness? If it does lose its saltiness, it is useless because there is nothing with which to season it and make it salty again! Jesus said in Luke of such has-been salt, “It is no good for the land, not even as manure.” (Luke 14:35)
“As the salt of the earth” every follower of Jesus has a special purpose in life. Jesus may have intended his followers to preserve and purify their society. Or, he may have meant for them to give gusto to life. Also, he may have expected them to work for both spiritual and physical peace in the world. Failure to act as salt in one’s life situations means one has lost his usefulness as a Christian.

Hello again from all of us at the center. We had knitting on Thursday and Theda and Lucille attended. Ann and Kathryn visited and watched as they knitted. I enjoyed watching them and listening. It is so good to have Ann back with us for however long. We and the seniors love having her here. The jackpot winners this week were Pat Ogden and Iva Fulcher on Tuesday, then Marie Wilson and JoAnn Thompson on Friday. We thank Katrina with Texas Home Health for calling for us Tuesday and Ruth Schwille for calling for us Friday. We look forward to seeing these sweet ladies when they come. We thank Norma for the cookies and cake she brought. Ruth also brought donuts and we thank her for that. We hope to see you all for lunch and activities at the center.
