Late last Thursday night, the church mailbox ended up smashed into the woods, probably twenty feet from where it once stood by the road. Thankfully, no one was hurt. The mailbox will be fixed by a kind volunteer. It makes a darn good story and is not a bad reminder of grace. When Dietrich Bonhoeffer was in a Nazi concentration camp, he urged his family “to celebrate Christmas despite the ruins around us.” Think about that!
Also, our beloved Milton McCollough told me that his yearly pledge had been in the mailbox, so Milton figured he’d gotten out of paying that one!
