Friends:

 “I sign your eyes that you may see the beauty of Christ, I sign your nostrils that you may breathe the fragrance of the Spirit, I sign your ears that you may hear the wisdom of God.”  (Baptismal Rite)  “God is your being and who you are, you are in God.”  (The Cloud of Unknowing)

Holy Week / Still Week – Rites of Passage for experiencing the Mystery of Christ’s Passion:
Maundy Thursday Seder:  If you want to know the origin and pulsating heart of the Eucharist, come and experience the Passover Meal of Liberation at 6:30 pm.
Good Friday:  If you are willing to face the absurdity of suffering, violence and death, come to this contemplative service at 7:00 pm.  (The Church will also be open from 12–3 pm).
Easter Vigil:  If you want to taste the joy of Baptism and life emerging out of nothingness, come to this celebration at 7:30 pm.
Easter Day:  If you want to experience Hope that creates space for New Life and transformation, come to this Extravagant Celebration at 9:30 am.

You are asked to bring any festive food/rolls/fruit you would like to share for our Easter Brunch.  This allows all of us to share in creating Hospitality for all our guests this Sunday.

Of course the Egg Hunt will immediately follow worship.
(Please leave  the eggs you have filled with surprises in the Gathering Hall before worship.)

After experiencing the power and depth of our Palm Sunday Service you can appreciate our Peace Logo with fresh eyes:  palm branches waving in front of the cross.

Keep in your prayers:  Ceil and family on the death of her father, Jonathan, Melinda, Madeline Parks (Willow’s mom), our Catechumens.

“I beg you…..be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves….the search going on within your inmost being is worthy of your whole love….the point is to live everything you experience.  Live your questions now.  Do not seek “answers” which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live into them.”   Ranier Maria Rilke
