On Sunday afternoon, November 18, Fr. George Genuso and the congregation of Christ Memorial Episcopal Church hosted the gathering of three other community churches for an Ecumenical Church Service. The definition of Ecumenical is the desire to unite several Christian church denominations. This merger included participation from not only Christ Memorial Episcopal Church but was also comprised of First United Methodist Church, Union Spring Baptist Church and St. John the Baptist Church, all of Mansfield.

Fr. Genuso opened the service by welcoming the overflowing crowd of all ages. The theme of the special service was “Unity in the Community” with several denominations and races coming together to praise God and join in Christian fellowship. Liturgists that read scripture were Worlita Williams and Felicia Steadman of Union Spring Baptist Church.

The Farm Wife: The Song of my People

Article Image Alt Text

I am not so sure if this go ‘round I purchased chickens, or provided training facilities to some sort of Gallus gallus domesticus Choir.

Each morning, you can find me at daybreak tending to my flock. I give them feed. I clean out their bowls and offer fresh cool water. I open their hatch and they pour out like a waterfall of feathers. And as they stretch their legs, I get serenaded with the morning’s music.

Some of them just simply ‘la la la’, as if getting their vocal chords ready for the grand solo. Carlisle, our new Roo, belts out Amore in a hauntingly beautiful tenor as he croons to the ladies. And one chicken…bless her heart, she is as tone-deaf as they come, but still commences to walk around singing to herself. Da duh da…da da DA!
