Friends:

“Love your enemies…….If you want to see yourself don’t look in a mirror; look in our neighbors eyes to see what they see.”

The Crab Feast is coming!! Saturday – March 5 at 5pm our Annual Crab Dinner and Silent Auction is happening.  The best crab of the season will be presented to you as is our tradition.  Julie and Robert Arnone ask you to Sign Up this Sunday at church or notify the office.  Silent Auction gifts/baskets are needed.  Thanks to all the volunteers who are stepping forward.  Invite your friends!!

Mudzunga, Nzumbu and Ndamu Farisani will be with us for worship this Sunday – it may be there only Sunday with us.  Please come and welcome these dear friends.  As details of their schedule emerge I will get them published so you can have further conversation with them.  The Partnership Committee and Confirmands are two groups who will have additional time with them.  Powerful and delightful people (the girls are now in their 20’s) you will experience the vitality of our shared faith and partnership.

The Sunday Salon group will meet this Sunday at 1:00 pm at Jeanie Locklear’s home.  This is an opportunity for small group faith reflections to be shared….plus some good food and coffee always emerges.  Join in – directions available on Sunday.

Our thanks to the Collins Family for the Memorial Gift of the Transfiguration Painting given in honor of Judy.

Please keep in your prayers:  all those engaged in the transforming struggles of this time….the people of Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Bahrain, Wisconsin, Indiana and Ohio.

Epiphany Blessings,  Pr. Steve
