06-27-12 Article

Caption: Bruce Westerdahl was a guest speaker on Father’s Day at Bluff
Point UMC, and he spoke eloquently about God, our heavenly Father. He
shared a story about a visit to beautiful Acadia National Park in Maine that
he and his wife, Nancy, made a number of years ago. His host told the
Westerdahls that “This is where God comes when He’s on vacation.”
Always the quick-thinker Bruce replied, “And the rest of the time He lives
in the Finger Lakes.” Amen.
