Bluebird Sabbath

Bluebird Sabbath—What, is there a special Sabbath for Bluebirds? Well in a way there was for Yakima (Wash.) Church's juniors.

David Rattray, who enjoys the challenge of inspiring children, makes bluebird houses and, from time to time, lets the juniors do some finishing touches on them. Once completed, they were put in the designated area on Sabbath, May 31.

After services, the juniors went to a beautiful park in Naches for a potluck. Then off they went caravan style up Highway 12 and turned near Windy Point. The rugged forest road required low gear, but when they arrived at the prime spot, it was beautiful.

Once the group was there, Rattray showed them where to placed the new bluebird houses in widespread trees. Using electronic instruments to spot exact locations, the group checked and recorded the status of previously-placed houses.
