To the Editor:

For this non-member, the 100th Homecoming service at Morgan Chapel Church was a blessing.

A simple little church on a road that I have passed by many times was indeed a blessing to me and those who attended the service. The small congregation and group of visitors were warm and friendly. The pastor, Rev Tom Frady was an elegant older gentleman who made us all feel at home in his sanctuary.

Rev. Frady opened with prayer, remarks and promptly introduced the Pilgrims on a Journey. Their voices of praise and thanksgiving got toes tapping and hands clapping. Following their performance, Lay preacher Frank Williams took his place before the congregation and told his lifes story through words and song. To hear this 103-year-old disciple of the Lord witness to his faith and love of Jesus was heart warming. How many 100-year-old men do you know?&bsp; &bsp;

We loved our time at Morgan Chapel and look forward to the 101st Homecoming. To all the new comers to the area, I would suggest that you stop in and worship with the Morgan Chapel congregation. You will get a feel for those whose families have been in Tryon much longer that we have.

Rev. Frady asked that we invite our neighbors, friends and enemies to his church! So come.
