Sunday Worship March 17, 2024

Grace to you and peace, from God our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ!  In some ways, it is hard to believe that the spring equinox is this coming week.  In other ways, we have experienced very little winter and are anxious to know what becomes of our weather, of our climate.  This ambiguous place, a kind of hovering between is often what the season of Lent can feel like for those who observe it.  We are still in the midst of it, while also anticipating something good that we haven’t quite seen or even truly conceived of yet.  Scripture can help us to understand how to navigate ambiguous moments and in this week’s Gospel readings, we are provided a symbol that may offer to be fruitful in putting our minds at ease.  

We also look forward this week to our quarterly meeting to follow worship, while we also enjoy a celebratory St. Patrick’s Day potluck luncheon together.  What are you bringing?  Sweet?  Savory?  

Blessings and peace, Lisa

Worship at Home Materials:  We will be offering worship in-person as well as on Zoom this coming Sunday. Coffee & tea are available after the church service. Masks are suggested in the sanctuary and required during the singing of hymns, as the virus spreads most easily with the projection of droplets.
