Word came out today that Scott Schrecengost had been sent home from Shadyside to go on hospice. Scott, Pam, and their family, were members are our church before they moved to Kersey for employment reasons. Scott has been battling pancreatic cancer for 4 or 5 years. Keith Richardson is up from South Carolina, staying with his daughter near Kingsville. Keith called me and asked if I wanted to go up to see Scott. He had flown up and didn't have a car. I said I really wanted to see Scott and Pam; so we went up for a couple of hours in the early evening.​

I spent all of the morning and into the afternoon at a symposium at the Zion church for both the faith based community and human services of Clarion County. Jason, Tony, Gregg, and Coni were there as well. The main speaker talked about Toxic Charity. In the evening, we had an elders meeting. Barry Whitworth and David Ludwig came to speak to us. They are leaders in the state convention.
