I wish you a happy Mothers Day! And hope that on this day your thought can rest upon the memories of those who have been special mothers to you through their wisdom and care.
Music for Worship:
I have selected the hymn Mothers of Faith to begin worship. It is a fairly recent hymn that speaks to the importance of the influence of mothers in encouraging our faith.
Mothers of Faith: Malcolm Gordon – https://soundcloud.com/malcolm-gordon-3/mothers-of-faith
The songs for the ending of worship will be familiar ones to us all. When I hear them I feel good and am reminded that life is good – even in the midst of the trials and tribulations. My hope is that they will uplift your spirits in the knowledge that we can make the world a better place together.
What the World Needs Now is Love: Jackie DeShannon – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUaxVQPohlU
That’s What Friends Are For: Dionne Warwick – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyTpu6BmE88
What a Wonderful World: Louis Armstrong – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqhCQZaH4Vs
Church Reopening: With the number of Covid -19 cases on the rise, and the knowledge that it will be late in the summer before most members of the congregation will receive their second vaccination, session has taken the decision to defer public worship until after the summer. Sunday, September 12th is the target date for re-opening. This is the Sunday that we traditionally celebrate “Welcome Back Sunday” and it is our hope that this year we will have a wonderful grand celebration!
Planting Flowers: Each year we plant flowers in the cemetery as a sign of remembrance and hope. This year will be no different! (Except for the fact that we cannot gather together as a group). We are planning something unique which will hopefully make this tradition meaningful in a special way this year. We are planning to plant between May 19-29 … more details to follow next week
Connection & Visitation (C&V) Team: A quick update on a ministry that that has evolved and taken shape as a result of the Coovid-19 Pandemic, and our inability to meet together! Under the leadership of Bryce and Bev and the support of Maureen, Anne, Chris, Brenda and Lloyd, the C&V Team have made it a mission to reach out and stay connected with everyone in the congregation. With calls and cards and virtual visits they hope that you feel that you are thought about and held in prayer: Lloyd is also offering to play your favorite hymns over the phone!
…and as always, if there is anyone who would like to have a pastoral visit, you may reach out to me directly.
My hope is that you are feeling the expectant hope that comes with each new spring as a reminder and as a promise. For we are an Easter people.
