Happy Mardi Gras! Or Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Tuesday. This is also the reason why I am not waiting until Thursday to send you my usual Weekly Contact. I would like to remind you that tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, and we are celebrating with a communion service and the imposition of ashes. This is always a meaningful way to start the season where we remember our Lord’s journey to the cross. It is a season to reflect on our own mortality and limitations, but also on the new life and hope we have, knowing that resurrection awaits through the power of God’s love. I hope you will be able to join us, tomorrow night at 6:00 in the sanctuary.
And you will not want to miss worship this coming Sunday as we celebrate the Gifts of Women. Pastor Beth and other women in the congregation will be leading in worship, and the Presbyterian Women will be giving out their honorary membership award.
Finally, the March First Press is printed, but for some reason we are having some difficulty getting it up on our website. If you would like Karen Greene, the office administrator, to e-mail you a copy you may contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay in One Peace,
