Dear Faith Des Peres Friends,

“Go forward? Only thing to do! On we go!" – Tolkien

After the resurrection, Jesus told the disciples to go, so that’s what we’re going to do. It’s GO Sunday and it’s not too late to participate. We have 2 off-site locations at Doorways and Lydia’s House and one on-site location making blankets for Children’s Hospital. DON’T FORGET WE START AT 10 AM!!! There will be bagels and coffee in the Gathering Space starting at 9:30. Lunch will be provided for you. If you’re at Doorways or Lydia’s House, bring gardening gloves and gardening tools (shovel, spade) if you have them. If you’re making blankets, bring scissors if you have them. Details about what each site is doing are posted below.

I want to thank everyone who worked so hard to make Holy Week and Easter so special. Gail Robins did an excellent job leading the choir and musicians on Palm Sunday and Easter. We are so fortunate to have Gail here at Faith Des Peres. If you haven’t thanked her, please do. Holy Week and Easter are a lot of work for musicians! The choir did an outstanding job on Palm Sunday with the cantata. It was just beautiful. And I want to thank the Worship Arts Center (Leslie Barnes, Danny Mortimer, and Beth Willock) for assisting with Maundy Thursday (Ginny Feeler and Terry Baker, too!) and getting the sanctuary ready for Easter. Thank you, thank you, thank you. It really does take a village.

I hope to see you Sunday as we put the Easter message into practice.
