It’s almost too late, but I wanted to issue a friendly reminder that Daylight Saving Time begins tomorrow (Sunday, March 13, 2023). Don’t forget to move your clocks forward one hour (spring forward/fall back).

2023 MLK Community Prayer Breakfast
The 2023 Community Prayer Breakfast for Martin Luther King Jr. Day will be held at 9:00 a.m. on January 16, 2023, at the Douglass Annex, 900 Yuma Street. The speaker will be Dr. Rana Johnson, Kansas State University’s VP for diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. Rev. E. Fletcher of Bethel AME Church will lead those gathered in prayer.
The buffet breakfast will be served beginning at 9:00 a.m. In addition, art and writing contest entries and awards will be presented. You’re encouraged to view the displays before and after the speaker’s presentation.
This morning in the mail we received an envelope addressed to College Avenue United Methodist Church but without a return address. It was also unsigned. So we’re ignoring it. I want to make sure everyone knows that’s the policy.

It’s Probably Just Allergies . . .
I feel just fine. I’ve had allergies since I was a kid. And I think that’s what I’m experiencing now. But with the uptick of COVID, the flu, colds, and RSV, I don’t want to risk getting any of you sick. It’s probably just allergies, but just in case, I’m masking.

Free Parking Spot for K-State Football Games
I’m quite certain that if my dad were still alive, he would have expected me to get him free parking for K-State Football games at College Avenue UMC. I would have explained that just because I’m the pastor doesn’t mean he gets free parking. He would not have believed me and eventually I would have bought him a parking space. Dad’s not with us anymore, but I bought a parking spot in his memory. It’s available for family, friends, parishioners, and former parishioners on a game-by-game basis. Let me know if you’re interested.
Two More Meet and Greets
There are two final meet and greets scheduled for next week. Let me know if you didn’t get an invitation and we can schedule another one. If health concerns are keeping you from attending, I would be happy to schedule one by Zoom. I’m at email@example.com and 620-252-9622.
A couple of staff members have received emails that claim to be for me asking for money. They claim to be from “John Collins” but the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. We will never ask you to pay a bill for the church. If you get one of these, it’s not from me. Please do not respond.
