PCGG Mission Statement:

"...Then the King will say to those on his right, Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world ... For when I was in prison...you came to visit me." (Matt. 25:34-36)

Themes for the first 4 gatherings and their purpose ...

ISOLATION: Many people in our world, our Church, yes our parish, feel distanced from one another. One could be in a crowded church or at a church function and still feel isolated.

LOVE: Our purpose in this gathering is to examine our weaknesses from St. Paul's "admonitions" in 1 Cor. 13 (love is kind, patient, etc.).

COMMUNITY: What we really want is to develop a much stronger sense of community within our parish which will ultimately transform the very world we live in. We cannot do this alone.

FORGIVENESS: The basis for being Christian, Jesus died so that sins may be forgiven. He expects us to forgive others as we are forgiven by the Father.

OTHER THEMES: Reality of Discipleship, Discernment, Leadership, Healing, Humility, Holiness, Peripheral Vision, Perseverance, Resolving conflict and many more.

A little about outlaw country legend Johnny Cash, just marginally related ...

Pictured left to right in the boys row in the back is Drew, Ryan, Allen (myself), Adam, and Jesse. Pictured left to right in the girls row is Alicia, Lauren, and Laura. Adam was coach and Bryant Sigfried, not pictured was club president.

Some of the schools we traveled to for matches included HACC, Villanova, Bucknell, and Unversity of Maryland. Our team exercised good comradery by spending a lot of time together practicing as well as socializing. Parties, bowling, and restarant gatherings were frequent get togethers.

I learned a few neat tricks from my tennis experience at Shippensburg. First, use top-spin. Second, when serving, hold the ball an arms length out in front of you for the toss. Third, follow the ball with your arm when it is lobbed over you to set yourself up for a overhead slam. Finally, move your feet when you play.
