A6 - THE PERKINS JOURNAL, Thursday, July 29, 2010 A_Pea 'ers Recently the Glencoe Methodist Protestant Church held a special service to bless a group of carved angels. Mr. Art Wheat, a well known carver, became interested in carving and giving angels to persons who had cancer, following his own bout with cancer. He saw so many persons that were sort of "lost" as to what to depend on. Mr. Wheat felt that the carved angels would help persons remember that there are higher spiritual powers at work in the world and that God's angels are always there to provide healing and strength. He plans to give the angels to persons battling cancer at the Still- water Cancer Center. Each of the three co-pas- tors, Rev. Allen Mitchell, Rev. Daniel Devers and Rev. Larry Devers gave a short meditation concern- ing the history of "bless- ings" within the Christian Community. "They gave illustrations of the use of 'blessings" throughout the ages and also used many scriptural passages of "blessings" in the Chris- tian Bible. All three put an emphasis on the fact that these angels are not idols to be worshiped but rather physical reminders of the power of God on the earth. The closing of the service consisted of statements why the congregation was asking God's special blessing upon the carved angels' We are humbly asking God to inspire others from actually seeing and feeling an object which proclaims there are angels today. We are not sending these angels forth as magical items empowered by us but rather as emmisaries of good will to refresh the human spirit. We are acting as disciples of Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit to bless those who receive these angels with a faith that trusts in God's Mercy and Grace. We send these angels forth asking that in all cases God's will is done. We ask that invisible spiri- tual energies be given by God through the death of His son upon the Cross. We, acting as the Body of Christ in the world, request that the Holy Spirit use the everliving and everpresent Blood of Christ to purify these angels to proclaim the Glory of God. Mr. Art Wheat carves angels for those suffering from cancer. By Trisha Gedon STILLWATER, Okla. - Nearly 50 4-H'ers and vol- unteers returned recently from the nation's capitol where they learned about government process. Participating in Citizen- ship Washington Focus is a great opportunity to learn in a living classroom, said Tracy Beck, state 4-H events and activities coor- dinator. "For more than 50 years, 4-H'ers have been traveling from across the county to Washington, D.C. to participate in workshops, committees and field trips," Beck said. "Once the delegates return home they use what they have learned to make posi- tive changes in their own communities. CWF not only strengthens young people's understanding of the government's civic process, but it also boosts their leadership skills, communication skills and overall confidence." Conner Carroll, Perkins 4-H Club; and Taylor McEntire, Twin Mounds 4-H; both Payne County 4-H'ers, served as CWF delegates this year. CWF provides youth an opportunity to explore, develop and refine the civic engagement skills they need to be outstand- ing leaders in their home communities and at the national level. The con- ference offered on-site workshops at some of the many historical points in Washington D.C., including the Capitol, Mount Vernon, Arlington National Cemetery, presi- dential and war monu- WHAT A CHILD LEARNS ABOUT VIOLENCE A CHILD LEARNS FOR LIFE.

"These educational sightseeing tours in the living classroom of Wash- ington, D.C. gave our club members the chance to learn about the history of our nation, the leaders who have shaped it and how they can apply what they've learned once they return home," she said. "My favorite day would have to be Delegation Day. It was where we were able to go and explore all over D.C. We went to the museums and shops of our choice with all our friends! ! Overall the trip was incredible!" explained McEntire. The group also gained cultural experience by attending a dinner theater presentation of Hair- spray. To make the most of the trip, the group also had the opportunity to sight see during the bus trip to and from Washington, D.C. Some of the his- torical sites they visited include Gettysburg and Philadelphia. "These places are rich in American history and provided delegates a first-hand look at what they've learned in their high school history and civics classes," Beck said. "Overall, the CWF trip is one of the most enriching trips available to Okla- homa 4-H'ers." "My favorite part", Car- roll says, "was meeting tons of new people from around the country and making relationships that will last a lifetime."
