And, too, a review about a  lecture at Fairweather’s by Jo Pomeroy-Crockett.

“I particularly enjoyed the artist, Jo Pomeroy-Crockett, who shared her comments regarding gratitude. I thought about her as I read today’s devotion that I receive from Rick Warren. His sentiments mirror those of your guest. I hope that you will share them with her. You, Kathy, and your other hosts did a wonderful job as usual. You have such a gift of design and hospitality and are a real asset to our community! Blessings, Gary”  05-04-2014
