These are links that take you away from this site to other points of interest.

Cumberland Presbyterian Ponderings.  Most of Tom’s messages and some other prayers and devotions are posted here.

The Burns Flat News.  Items of local interest are posted here.

Your pastor did what?  Yes, the word is out.  Tom has written a few books, many of them very much related to ministry.     



Church Cruise 2017


We did not have enough interest in a 2017 cruise.  Perhaps we will check again in a couple more years.

Have you ever wanted to go on a cruise? 



Have you been on one before and are ready to go again? 



The Burns Flat Cumberland Presbyterian Church is asking its members who are interested to talk with Kendra Walker.  We will cruise between Sundays next May out of Galveston.  We will leave sometime on the afternoon or evening of 28 May and be back in Burns Flat the next Saturday evening.  The total cost will be determined by the number going, transportation arrangements, and the type of room that you want.  If you want to go with the very basic package, plan to spend about $600 per person.  This includes all meals, tea and lemonade for drinks, and entertainment.  You will want some cash for souvenirs at the two ports and any extras that you buy onboard.  Soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, and specialty meals are extra but you can have a great affordable cruise without spending money on any of these.



We really need to see who is committed to going by early November so we can be assured of getting everyone onboard and making transportation arrangements.

We recommend that everyone also have a passport.  You may be able to cruise using only your birth certificate, but a passport is always better.  The waiting time on a passport is about 2 months.



Think about this, pray about this, and check your finances.  It is not for everybody, but some already know what a great time cruising can be.


Let Kendra know soonest!

Bring the Drama


The next drama meeting is 30 August 2017 at 6 pm.  We will work to confirm the next few months of the current year and extend our scheduling into 2018.  Always be on the lookout for short dramas that will bring a good message to our congregation.  If you are disposed to write one, please do.  If you would like to write one with someone else, see Tom.

Here is the worksheet from our 24 May 2017 Meeting.  Yellow Highlighting indicates a reschedule drama or a drama to be repeated at a different time.  We will use video as backups for dramas instead of having someone on call for every Sunday.  Major Dramas will be forecast here but will be less frequent and under the direction of our Drama Director, Des Simmons.

This is a plan and subject to change, but if each participant will begin to study their scripts immediately, adjustments become easier when they are necessary.

Remember the guidelines for these short drama's:
--They can be done by 1 or 2 people.  Some exceptions made where all cast members are from the same family.
--Two minute messages are the goal.
--When possible, we will tie the short drama with the time of year or main message.
