Good News, 03.25.09

Friends:

One always learns about one’s mystery at the cost of one’s innocence.

Thanks to the Healing Prayer Team, the Confirmands and Pr. Margareta for all their work in creating last Sunday’s Healing Prayer Service.  Isn’t Taylor’s painting deLightful! [Images from Sunday’s worship below]

Healing Prayer is also available during the week with two or more people from the Team ready to pray with you.  Contact me if you would like to request this.

The Partnership Committee would like you to consider being part of a Delegation to Nicaragua July 6 – 16.  You’ll be learning more about this opportunity these next Sundays.

We will have fun celebrating our 10th Anniversary this Sunday.

Please sign up for the Seder this Sunday.  The Confirmation Parents (who have teenagers in their homes) are coordinating this Passover Celebration at which Jesus instituted the Eucharist.  You can assist by volunteering to prepare some of the food as well.  Holy Week is April 5 – 12.  Seder is Thursday, April 9.  You are encouraged to invite friends.

We will have to postpone the Deep Clean/Green Clean scheduled for this Saturday.  I know this announcement causes great wailing and gnashing of teeth but sometimes that’s just the way it is.

Sr. Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking, speaks at the Mt. Diablo UU church in Walnut Creek on Monday evening at 7:00 pm.  A flyer with details is available for you on Sunday.

Annie Haines Garage Sale was so popular she’s continuing it this Saturday.  Thanks for the support from all the Peace people.  Join her after 9am at 2825 Stratford Dr. in San Ramon (just off of Pine Valley).

Jazz pianist Dan Zemelman recorded his next CD at Peace this past Sunday.  He loves the piano, space and acoustics.  A wonderful use of our sanctuary don’t you think?

You are God’s Works of Art!
