Larry Coleman turns 80!

We were specially blessed to be able to celebrate the 80th birthday of Rev. Larry Coleman, right here at Paxton Church in January. The party was planned and hosted by the families of Larry’s wonderful sons, who grew up in this congregation and shared so much of themselves with us. Happy Birthday, Larry – we wish you JOY!

I am no longer my own, but thine. 
Put me to what thou wilt, rank me with whom thou wilt. 
Put me to doing, put me to suffering. 
Let me be employed by thee or laid aside for thee, exalted for thee or brought low for thee. 
Let me be full, let me be empty. 
Let me have all things, let me have nothing. 
I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and disposal. 
And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, thou art mine, and I am thine. So be it. And the covenant which I have made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.
– The Wesley Covenant Prayer
