Last month, the editor made an appeal for a proofreader. What came back was an entire staff! We are fortunate to have the talents of Jamie Koons as a writer. She has a degree in writing and professional experience in reporting. Dick Rhine has agreed to be our proofreader. Mr. Rhine has educated at least half of the church of a certain age and has been a member for even longer. Connie Heiss has agreed to continue helping with the calendar, do name spelling checks and to be a collector of information. With this assistance all that we need now is material to write about, which is never in short supply at our church.
If The Beacon can get volunteers, perhaps everyone should think about ways they can put their talents to work in the church. I know I find my contribution very satisfying and fun. If you have an idea or talent to share, you can always tell Pastor Bill. He can point you in the right direction. I pray that 2013 is the best year ever for Grace Lutheran.
