Our Easter lilies have trumpeted and now are moving on toward May in dustings of pollen and dropped leaves. The echoes of our resurrection hallelujahs grow distant.
And. On. We. Go.
Each week brings us fresh challenges; new work to be done; new thresholds to cross. We welcome a new staff member into our community this morning, someone who will help us extend ourselves further beyond our own church walls.
We can be the presence of Christ in this wildly transforming world. Here in the Base Camp of our church community, let’s keep the gift of Sabbath, sing and pray, reflect, refuel – and refresh our sense of reverence.
AFTER WORSHIP CONVERSATION
30 minutes, following worship
Today we will have our conversation as a large group.
• Lay Leader, Ann DeGroot will give us an Administrative Council update.
• Steve Ozanne, will present the beginning of a plan to be in worship we’re calling Both/And, which refers to being BOTH in the sanctuary in person AND connected at a distance by technology.
• Cathy Velasquez Eberhart will explain the MN United Methodist Conference COVID Response Dial, and what the current “orange” phase means for us.
On a Sunday in the near future we will take a virtual tour of the technical set up “behind the screen,” that allows us to connect through Zoom
for our live Sunday worship each week.
The time is ripe for questions and imagining! We very much hope you will choose to be part of this important conversation.
All are invited to stay and join the conversation!
