The Drummer goes to PDF to save on postage

the church administrator sent out this email:

Greetings Sunnyhillers

The Drummer (Sunnyhill's Newsletter) will be sent electronically in PDF
form beginning with the February Issue. If someone doesn't have email or I
do not have their email address then I will be snail mailing the February
copy but starting in March they will have to pick up a copy at Sunnyhill or
receive it electronically. Exceptions are Churches that we exchange
newsletters with and visitors that do not provide an email address.

This will save money- postage and paper and it is in line with our Seventh

The February Issue will be sent out at the end of January to this list. If
you would not like to receive a copy of the Drummer then please reply to
this email.

Ex-cop: Rein in the war on drugs

Ex-cop: Rein in the war on drugs - "Ex-cop: Rein in the war on drugs


Howard Wooldridge rode into town last weekend on his horse, just like a lawman from the Old West. But the former detective didn't visit Pittsburgh to lock up bad guys. He was here to lecture on what he feels is the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on the American public."

Some coverage of Howard, our LifeCraft presenter. Howard did a great job. Thanks for setting up the meeting.

Kakizome, haiku and cinquain

Kakizome is a traditional Japanese way of greeting the new year with poetry, written for the occasion. In recent years this has become a Sunnyhill tradition as well.

Haiku is a form wiht three lines, the first with five syllables, the second with seven and the third with five. The lines need not rhyme. (See notes for example and submissions.)

Cinquain is a five line poem, with a structure which gives it the form of a diamond.
Line 1: one word to name the subject.
Line 2: two words to describe it.
Line 3: three action words about it.
Line 4: a four or five word phrase describing the subject (a thought, not a complete sentence)
Line 5: one word that means the same thing as the first word, or a word that sums it all up.
