Work, Work, Work for the Kingdom of Heaven?
Work Day is this Saturday! There is gardening, repair work on outdoor benches, kitchen cleaning, and outdoor painting. Please contact Work Team Leader Carol Lowrey for specifics: firstname.lastname@example.org She is planning a breakfast for any crew that arrives at about 7:30!
Two of my three grandchildren will be with me this week. Alma and Gabriel are each around three years old - and you can guess how elated I am to have them with me. You can also guess where my energy is mostly going to be focused for the next few days! I will be fully re-focused on Church by Saturday afternoon and in high spirits if also in need of some naps!
Please do make it a priority to gather for Sunday worship. Where we put our time and effort is what we imitate. Giving our worship to God on a weekly basis in the company of His gathered people will influence for the good the entire rest of your week!
" We have thousands of opportunities every day to be grateful: for having good weather, to have slept well last night, to be able to get up, to be healthy, to have enough to eat...There's opportunity ups opportunity to be grateful; that's what life is." Br. David Steindl-Rast
