FATHER MARK’S ANNOUNCEMENTS
1) If you are looking for something to do or read this Lent, here are a few suggestions:
2) As I said on Sunday, there are lots of ideas about best practices regarding hand washing and greeting one another and keeping ourselves and our community safe. I think the best thing we can change at church is to avoid handshakes at the passing of the peace until we get the ok to go back to normal. That will be my practice for now. I will say that I miss shaking hands — there is something about that simple gesture that speaks to friendship and reconciliation — and I look forward to being able to get back to that. In the meantime, use the hand gel in the pews, smile and speak a greeting at the peace, and follow the advice of the experts in your daily lives.
3) I have not forgotten that we have two pretty important discussions ahead of us this spring — the first has to do with Youth Group. We will be contacting the youth and parents to discuss programming options and preferences. The other is a follow-up to our Sunday evening service trial in December. More to come on both of these.
The ECW (Episcopal Church Women) will be holding their Spring meeting on Saturday, March 14, at 10 am. We are looking forward to your input on the Mother’s Day Brunch and “Christmas in July” bazaar. Refreshments will be served! Please call Barb if you have any questions at 436-7767.

Watch over thy child, O Lord, as his days increase; bless and guide him wherever he may be. Strengthen him when he stands; comfort him when discouraged or sorrowful; raise him up if hefall; and his heart may thy peace which passeth understanding abide all the days of his life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
