Treasure Sale – Our spring Treasure Sale has been scheduled for the first week in April. This long standing tradition gives us all an opportunity to spend time with our church family and to raise money for the ministries of our church, while providing an opportunity for us to welcome our neighbors into this space.Your contributions to the sale will be gratefully accepted from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 2 & 3 (Wed. & Thurs.) Items accepted (but not limited to): toys & tools, books & baskets, antiques & artwork, lamps & linens, flowers & furniture, plus rugs, housewares, dishes, white elephants, you name it. If the item has a plug or needs batteries, please don’t donate unless it works. If it is HEAVY or HUGE, don’t bring it in without checking with Amy or Maureen. We cannot accept mattresses, TV’s, computer screens or other items that if unsold would necessitate a dump fee. Remember, this is a recycling fundraiser, so no junk. Save your clothing, shoes, & accessories for the fall sale. Workers will be needed to sort, display & price these items on April 2 & 3 (8 a.m. to 4 p.m.); to help with sales on April 4 (9:45 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and April 5 (7:45 a.m. to Noon) with cleanup immediately following. A signup sheet is available in the Chapel. If you have questions about volunteering, or about contributing, please call Amy Erickson @532-4865 or Maureen Shallish @ 387-5890. Please join us.
Our journey through Lent can at times feel like we’re searching in the dark for light; we’re blinded by selfish ambitions and personal needs and can’t see the spiritual fulfillment that comes from a life lived in God’s light. The blind man’s healing enrages the authorities, and his very real encounter with the divine has given him sight and he sees – physically and spiritually – more clearly. As we struggle in our own darkness this Lent, may we, like the blind man, see the movement of God in our lives and the world around us.
This week – at the end of each day, write down the ways and the people who helped you encounter the divine.
