I prayed for you all and for our ministry together this week as I spent 3 1/2 days on personal retreat. There is much in flux during this gradual entry into post-pandemic reality, and I treasured this time to step back from the daily tasks in order have uninterrupted time for prayer and reflection. Thank you for this gift of time.
I’ll write more in next week’s eNews about where the Spirit led me during this extended time of reflection and prayer. I need a little more time to let it “steep” before I try to share much of it with you.
In the meantime, I look forward to gathering with you for worship this Sunday – “The first Sunday after Earth Day.” It is not an official liturgical day for the Church (yet!), but nevertheless it is a holy time which we will mark with a blessing of gardens and the celebration of the new North East Community Garden following our 9 am service.
Join us by our Native Teaching Garden around 10:15 for the festivities! (Don’t forget to bring a mask!)
