As the Spirit Christmas Present told Scrooge in his departing line:

"We never have the time to do all that we would wish.  The thing is to do as much as we can in the time that we have. Remember, Scrooge, suddenly there comes a moment and we aren't here anymore."

Munsey UMC Youth Place Mat

Bishop Grove Proud of the Youth in His New Home Church & Their Work in West Virginia
"As many of you know ML and I now worship at Munsey UMC in Johnson City TN. Recently, after worship, we attended a luncheon sponsored by the youth to support their mission trip to Rainelle, WV this coming summer. Munsey youth were on a mission trip in Rainelle when the flood occurred. They lived through it and came back and raised $60,000 in Munsey Church for flood relief, which was sent to the WV Conference. The youth of Munsey have returned each summer since and will go again next summer as the place mat (see above) from the luncheon indicates," explained former West Virginia Conference Bishop William Boyd Grove (retired).

John Wesley called it "The Blessed Connection!"
