“Living in a scientific age, part of our responsibility as thinking people of Faith is to proclaim that Faith is not the enemy of reason, logic or the scientific method - these things are given to us by God for our blessing. As people of Faith we do well to trust reason and logic, while also remaining open to mystery and miracles,” was the message delivered by Rev. Dr. Ken Crawford Sunday morning at Central Christian Church, (Disciples of Christ) in Dallas.
Worship ended with the choir and congregation singing “What a fellowship, what a joy divine, leaning on the everlasting arms.” Members were invited to take flowers, as a remembrance, from the Easter trees before gathering in Fellowship Hall for another celebration of the joy shared by those attending Central.
Although the congregation had to say “good-bye” to long time member Frances Mosier and wish her well on her new adventure, moving to Oklahoma to be closer to family, members had the opportunity to visit with dear friend, Bob Boyles, as he celebrates his 89th birthday. Bob recently joined his daughter in McKinney, Texas so Central doesn’t see him as often as they once did. Yesterday was truly a celebration of Central’s family.
