Did The Way celebrate Reformation

This made me remember something the HQ Corps Coordinator said to the 12th in-residence at the time) and 13th Corps (interim year on staff at the time) at a Sunday after-meeting when he was talking about the upcoming Uncle Harry/Burn the Chaff Day.  He misspoke and called it Burn Uncle Harry day.  That would have been 1984, so Uncle Harry had rejoined the soil 6.5 years before (he died in the summer of 1977, IIRC). The name of the event had recently been changed from Uncle Harry Day to Burn the Chaff day.  We all cracked up.  He was embarrassed, but Michael always enjoyed a good laugh, even at his own expense.
