Bro. Mel Blunier appeared to have had a restful night.

Note About the Silver Lining:
 
Keeping Christ at the Center
 
The new section of the Silver Lining, to which readers can submit content, has a third topic to finish off the year.
 
Topic: Our next topic is focused on the upcoming holiday season, particularly Christmas.  Given the flurry of activities in December, the time pressures and pressing commercialism, what does your family to do keep Christ at the center of the Christmas holiday?
 
This could be a great opportunity to learn from one another by sharing things that have been a blessing in your home.
 
Deadline: October 10, 2015
