Friends:

All that we do now ………must be done
In a Sacred manner.
We are the ones
We have been waiting for.”  Hopi Elder

Soup and Sacrament began this evening at 6:30.  It is a relaxing evening with a light and delicious meal, followed by conversation about your “Most Intriguing Questions about God and the Spiritual Life”.  We conclude with an informal Eucharist around 8:00.  Join us.

The Gnosticism Class is off to a great start with a marvelous presentation by Pr. Elizabeth this past Sunday and a gathering of 15 enthusiastic folk.  There is room for more.  Don’t miss out on Sundays after worship.  You’ll be surprised by the incredible, evolving nature of the Christian Community throughout the earliest centuries.

The final Psalms Class is tomorrow evening (Thursday) at 7 pm in the Youth Room.  Even if it is the only class you can attend please come and enjoy gifted teacher Maili Malvre!

The Crab Feast has over 100 people attending!  It will be a fantastic evening – especially with the Michigan University Tennis Team that Dana Squire is bringing!  Silent Auction items are still welcomed.  See you Saturday at 5:00.

There will be an Acolyte Training after worship this Sunday.

A blessing to share the Baptism Celebrations with Alden and Evelyn Tackett and their family this past Sunday.  What a gift for them to have Godmother (and Birthday Girl) Lois McGee praying for them too.

Keep in your prayers: Julie, Judy, Jasmine, Joan, Georgia, John, Maya, the Confirmands, Catechumens, those who are ill, seeking work, Peace Counseling Center, friends in Lwamondo Parish and Laurel Galan, Nicaragua.

You are invited to an Interfaith Prayer Gathering this Friday, March 6 at 7:30 pm at Community of Christ Church in Walnut Creek to pray for the seven members of the Bahai Leadership Council in Iran who have been in prison for nearly a year and who are about to stand trial on false charges of spying for Israel and insulting Islam.  Nobel Laureate and Legal Counsel, Shirin Ebadi, has not been permitted to see his clients.  Please pray for them.  We will learn more about this at Peace on Sunday too.

Blessings, Pr. Steve
