St. Thomas Church
Serving God and the Community Since 1875
I don't remember who said it, but it was said. "Beware the Ides of March"
We call it Lent and if we really take it seriously, it will not be fun. It is a time of 40 days or so to take our spiritual pulse and pressure. We hope we will reach the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead better than when we began. It takes courage to face some of the things that we are still hanging on to, lack of forgiveness, resentment of long standing, past hurts and wounds that are still bleeding, and reconciliation of families just to mention a few.
If you who read this every want to talk about any of that, the office is open every day of the week. We cannot guarantee the quality of the coffee but the pot is always on.
During the Lenten season we will be having some light suppers on Wednesday's followed by a program of interest.
The schedule with details is elsewhere in this months epistle. Hope we all take advantage of those opportunities.
There is a sign up list if you wish to help on one of the weeks.
Bless some one today,
Our little choir will be practicing on Wed. evenings at 7:00. No experience necessary.
Our Brass Rubbing classes are every Saturday at 10am. Everyone is welcome to come learn this long lost art.
We will have a booth at Scarborough Faire. It will be the first 4 weeks in April and we are in need of volunteers to work the booth.
Please let me know if a link is broken, or if you'd like to see more or other information.
I am looking for input on how this is going for you all! Please any input is appreciated as we make this transition from paper to electronic newsletters.
