429 Main St., in McGregor.
The first of the series was presented last night, Feb. 24, with Pastor Alan Schultz as the leader of the service. The conversation heard was between Malchus (Gary Brooks), Mark (Bob Eggan) and Abner (Lynn Hallberg) and took place after the arrest of Jesus. Malchus was the servant of the high priest whose ear was cut off by Peter which Jesus healed like new. Mark is believed to be the man whose robe was pulled off as he escaped the mob because they believed he was a disciple of Jesus. Mark was not really a disciple of Jesus at the time but later went on the write the gospel of Mark. It was a fictional conversation, as far as we know, but was extremely interesting. First Lutheran Church did a fine job of presenting the program. Thank you to all of them.
There was a delicious meal beforehand provided by the ladies of First Congregational Church. We thank the ladies for providing the food. Several churches will take turns providing the meals for the series.
