The Ash Wednesday Service was one of the best Ash Wednesday services I have been to at Franklin. The service was well attended and I am sure all received a blessing. It was a somber and humbling service which set the proper mood for us to enter and prepare for the Lenten Season.  I encourage everyone to remain steadfast in whatever you are doing for Lent. Fasting, prayer and Bible study are excellent ways to prepare for Easter.
I am pleased to announce that we will have a special guest preacher filling in for Rev. Elam on March 11. The Rev. Larry Summey has graciously agreed to deliver the message. Though Larry has visited several times, this will be the first time he returns to Franklin to preach since he retired. I know Larry has been very busy since his retirement and I am looking forward to seeing my old friend again.  I hope each who is able will attend.  

God Bless,
James Bost
