    “The calliope was donated to our center a few years ago from a family where the father had been very interested in steam boats and calliopes,” Matthews said. “It was time to find a new home for some of that material and the museum center agreed to look for a home for it.”

    Bro. Bill’s morning message was from Matthew 18:12-14. Which sheep are we? Are we the one gone astray? What distractions have we bought into that pulled us away from Christ. Are we one of the 99? If we are, we need to take account of those gone astray and reach out to them. Are we the lost sheep that does not see a need for Christ? Jesus Christ wants to embrace us. He seeks continually to love us.
