So, how was your weekend? I had the pleasure of visiting the church I attended as a youngster (homecoming). … Zion Hill Baptist, north of Bladenboro. Good to see many I had not seen in years, including at least one distant cousin had not seen in … 30 to 40 years, I guess. … Good fellowship, good service and delicious food.
Another homecoming planned for the coming weekend when speakers will be three former youngsters who grew up in the church (Wesley’s Chapel UMC), followed by lunch. All are welcomed.
For those who rise early, still dark at 6 a.m.
