“GETTING TO KNOW YOU”
“Getting to know you, getting to know all about you. Getting to like you, getting to hope you like me. Getting to know you, putting it my way, but nicely, you are precisely, my cup of tea.”
That’s what Anna sings to the children and wives of the leader of Siam in “The King and I”. And that is “precisely” how I am feeling about the folks of Solomon’s UCC. Every single person in the life of Solomon’s that I have met so far is my cup of tea.
And I am not just referring to the warm and generous reception you have been giving to Diane and myself as the new kids on the block; although we do appreciate your kindness so much.
Before Anna sings, she says to her audience “It’s a very ancient saying, but a true and honest thought, that if you become a teacher, by your pupils you’ll be taught.” Since I arrived at Solomon’s, I have been asking lots of questions, and so many people have been taking the time to help me understand how Solomon’s operates, what its habit patterns are, from the ways we are organized to our worship practices. Thanx so much; and, please, never stop sharing with me any ideas or information that you think might be good for me to know.
Yours in Christ,
