It seems to be an annual ritual here at First Reformed that when we meet for Rod’s Grill Night in July heaven opens its floodgates. Boy, does it always rain! But we are not made out of sugar, and for this reason even inclemency of the weather cannot deter us from having a good time – there is something Dutch in all of us, after all.
So look at the accompanying pictures and see what a joyous and happy bunch we can be. Of course, nobody took a picture of the men’s group gathered outside around the two grills. As they say, history is written by the victors, and, obviously, that group did not make it into the annals of the church. But the hamburgers and hot dogs were delicious regardless, and the event a great success. Thank you, Janet, Lolly and Joan, who serve on invitation & Outreach and made it happen again.
