A Prairie Home Companion radio show
23 August 2014
Dear Members and Friends of the ACP,
It is with deep disappointment that we announce the postponement until further notice of "A Prairie Home Companion", scheduled for 5-6 September. We received this news yesterday and are fully committed to reimbursing everyone who purchased tickets as soon as possible.
I feel like Lake Wobegone's Pastor Inqvest who had to tell his wife that the church council cancelled their long-awaited trip to Orlando, Florida. We are so sorry for the inconvenience that this short notice may cause, especially for those who made travel plans to be in Paris for this event.
Robert Burns' famous quote comes to mind: "The best laid schemes of Mice and Men, Oft go awry, And leave us nothing but grief and pain, For promised joy!" We are sorry that what was intended to bring blessing for the larger community now has brought the blues... I do hasten to add, even with this bitter news, it will be sweet being together for the rentrée and I look forward to seeing you again soon in worship. I remain sincerely yours,
