What a gorgeous day! One of the advantages of a later-than-normal-Easter is that we can enjoy it within the full panorama of Spring – Glorious! (By the way: that is a good way of reminding us to bring some cut flowers from home for the Flowering of the Cross on Easter Sunday).A few other things to note this week:
First, let me bring us up to speed on the two prayer requests I made this week:
- The good news is that Elise Atwood returned home today. She is one week into a 6 week recovery period, so your prayers need to be continued. But do pause to give thanks for the healing to date.
- The somewhat disappointing news is that Charles Jenkins will need more surgery tomorrow morning. The doctors are needing to explore to discover the source of the infection. Pray for God’s guiding hand in all of this.
- Can I add a third request? Clark Garvin is scheduled for a procedure on Monday. Pray that all goes well with him as well.
Second, for those who are creating a ‘station’ for our Stations of the Cross, please be sure to bring them in on Sunday to be hung on the walls of the sanctuary after worship.
Third, Holy Week begins on Sunday with the Palm Procession beginning PROMPTLY at 10:00 am in the Fellowship Hall. Set your clocks ahead at least a quarter of an hour to ensure that you will be present in plenty of time.
Fourth, after Coffee hour on Sunday we could use some help to get the Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall ready for the rest of the week. If you can stick around and lend a hand it would be greatly appreciated.
Fifth, remember that Holy Week is a great time to invite a friend to join you in worship. Most people who visit a church do so at this time of year, and most do so because of an invitation from a friend!
Looking forward to a great Week together.
