Beautiful Sunday

After the long day at the Shenandoah National Park yesterday, we had a good night's rest. This morning, we went for an hour's walk around the estate before returning for a simple breakfast.
We decided to go for Sunday service with our sister Soo at the nearby Church of the Redeemer.
The church was located just outside where Soo lives and next to a Muslim mosque.
We were in time for the 11am service. The congregation was quite large, made up of many African Americans as well as Americans of different races.
The special guest speaker Pastor Robert Barriger gave a wonderful sermon based on 2Chronicle about God's servant who was honourable,suffered pains and prayerful.
He then elaborated on what it meant to be honorable, using the Unknown soldiers at the Arlington Cemetery as an example of those who died unknown, yet known to God only.
The service took about an hour and was soon over.
