March 29, 2021

By Eugene and Lettie Morse,, St. Louis, Missouri

This past year was one like no other as we learned to adjust and adjust to the ever-changing impact of COVID-19. Zoom and curbside have taken on new meaning. Time now is marked as before and after our “Freedom Day” (for us March 23rd as two weeks after our final COVID-19 vaccine)!

We remain in our home in Webster Groves and, barring travel and NOMADS projects, we have been able to do most of our regular things. Lettie keeps busy as treasurer for Webster UM and has added the bookkeeping responsibilities for Webster Rock Hill Ministries where I serve on the board. We have enjoyed Zoom meetings with the St. Louis County Retired Ministers, and I keep up with my Downtown Lion’s club as we plan our 100th year anniversary in 2021.

Thanks to a screened porch we have been able to have regular visits with our daughter and two grands in high school and one in college and look forward to Lily’s high school graduation in May.  We have also entertained a few friends on the porch and just this past week were able to get together for a four-handed game of cribbage. Freedom! Looking forward to an Easter service outdoors on the parking lot and soon returning to church which has now been closed for over a year. Happy Easter to all.
