Services for this coming Sunday, April 28th, the Fifth Sunday of Easter, will be at 8 and 10 am. Coffee hour follows both services.
Readings for this Sunday: Acts 11:1-18; Psalm 148; Revelation 21:1-6; John 13:31-35.
The interment of Jim Brown’s ashes in our memorial garden will follow the 10:00 service today. His family invites his St. Andrew’s friends to join us for this very brief service.
At long last spring is really springing! Only nine days until our Spring Clean-up Work Day on Sunday May 5th after the 9 AM service. Please plan to bring your gloves and rakes to lend a helping hand in sprucing up our grounds for the summer! There are less rigorous indoor jobs as well. And if you expect to be away on the 5th and would like to lend a head ahead of time, bring a rake and a tarp, and feel free to take on a bit a lawn! (Contents of your tarp should get hauled back into the woods away from the path to the Meditation Grove.)
FYI: The Mystery Dinner tomorrow evening is SOLD OUT! This is great news for all except those who would love to attend but for whom we have no tickets! We do have a waiting list. And if for some reason you find that you will be unable to use the tickets you have already purchased or reserved, PLEASE call the office and let us know. We may very well be able to re-sell your ticket.
Food for thought from Archbishop of Canterbury William Temple from a radio broadcast to the United States in 1940…
I am disposed to begin by making what many people will feel to be a quite outrageous statement. This world can be saved from political chaos and collapse by one thing only and that is worship. For to worship is to quicken the conscience by the holiness of God, to feed the mind with the truth of God, to purge the imagination by the beauty of God, to devote the will to the purpose of God.
It has been said that “Americans worship their work, work at their play, and play at their worship.” It is only when we worship Jesus Christ and place Him central in our lives does all of life gain meaning.
Do you “Worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only?” Today in prayer, fix your thoughts on our Wonderful Savior and carry that prayer into serving Him.
See you in church!
