Origami Hearts

We are creating a collage of origami hearts as a gesture of gratitude to our community healthcare workers. And you are invited to help us.

We’ve created packages containing origami paper and instructions for folding. It’s quite easy and you are invited to make as many as you’d like. They will be available to be picked up by the back office door of the church all week.

We’ve created an instructional video, which you can watch below. If you can’t come pick a package up but would like one delivered just let Sherry know at the office and we will deliver one to you. 

Plus we are organizing an online crafter party on Wednesday evening. I will send the link tomorrow. It will be at 7 pm and go for an hour. Everyone is invited to join us.

And when you’ve done your folding just deliver the hearts to the church, either at the office or through the mail slot in the front door of the church. We will need them by next Sunday, April 11.

Thanks for your help.

Dead Seeds, New Life

Back on Ash Wednesday we planted seeds and looked forward to seeing new growth. Here are a couple pictures of that growth that were sent in. As we journey closer to the cross this week we hear those words of Jesus, “…unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remans just a single grain; but if it dies it bears much fruit.” (John 12:24) Where is new life springing up for you this year? Whee are you longing for new life to appear?

Lettuce Rejoice!

As we continue our journey through Lent we already begin to see the signs of new life emerging from the ashes, or rather soil, of our Ash Wednesday lament. But those shoots are still so tender and vulnerable. So can we die to our natural impatience and seek to learn the patient ways of caring for others and this fragile, vulnerable creation?
