Boda, was pastor for 14 years of the Tilghman Charge, covering five United Methodist churches in the Talbot County A THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK We all live by the clock and calendar, The "right time" is a way of life for a society caught in the throes of technological advancement. Working hours and business appointments are established. On the lighter side, many lives are regulated by TV soap operas, game shows, special programs and sports events. Surprisingly, some people find themselves in a state of boredom for want of something to do. This is regrettable because there is always something one can do to expand one's mind, or to help someone else. Wasted time is the rejection of the gift of time. Wasted time irretrievably passes on into an unyielding, unrecoverable past. Speaking of time, the right time to discuss or plan "prear-rangements" is AHEAD of time. It saves a worrisome, confusing and sorrowful situation for others at a difficult time. That is why "our time is your time" anytime you wish for such a discussion. Even now today No obligation, naturally. Newnam Funeral Home Easton Maryland 822-3131 MEMBER B INVITATION NATIONAL SELECTED MORTICIANS AN INTf ftNATKMAl ASSOCIATION Of area.
