PAT’S CHAT (Dec. 10)

Those of you who are from Burnsville may want to go to this site to watch the virtual memorial program for my brother, Harry V. Wiant, Jr. who died October 31 just short of his 88th birthday on November 4. His daughter, Teresa, has created this program because they live in the Seattle area and few, especially in these COVID-19 days, could make the trip there for services. Go to and click on VIRTUAL MEMORIAL SERVICE and follow the advice in red at bottom of that page.  It will be live at 3:00 p.m. PST or 6:00 p.m. EST.  You can explore the site before the video is played for the service, and then you will be able to go back to it later if you missed something you wanted to see in the Burnsville videos.

At the same time all of this is going on, my sweet younger brother, Samuel Wiant, II was taken yesterday to a hospice facility somewhere in Charlottesville, VA.  His wife, Freeda and his daughter, Angela went to see him today.  They are keeping him comfortable and he is settling in and not as stressed.  Appreciate your prayers.  

I want to tell you to go to and you will find our church bulletin and calendar which you can print out if you would like to.  Thanks to Ricci Sholock, we have this site to help us in this pandemic situation.  He keeps improving the site.  The lesson for this past week has been on The Christian and Work.  You have access to the lessons on the site.  You can share the lessons virtually, if you go to Buckhannon Seventh-day Adventist Church on your Facebook site.  It starts at 10:30 a.m. each Saturday morning. That is how I go to church.  One quote from the book, Messages to Young People, p. 72, says, “A religion which is not practical is not genuine.  True conversion makes us strictly honest in our fellow men.”
