Minister’s Musings
The melting snow is a welcome sight, but it tends to uncover the detritus
of winter along our roadways and walkways like stones and leaves,
discarded coffee cups and food wrappers. As we journey toward the
warmth and light of Easter, what might be uncovered in our own
lives? Are there things that must be picked up? Do we have feelings that
must be discarded or ‘baggage’ that needs to be repacked? Are there
elements of our lives that can be found or recovered? May God, Christ
and Spirit accompany you in this ‘uncovering’ time.

This Lenten Season sees Outreach and our Sunday
School collecting underwear and socks to help
community agencies replenish their supplies after
our cold winter. All socks and underwear must be
new for agencies to accept and can be for any sex
and size. Have some fun deciding what to
purchase and help our community agencies help those in need. Place
your purchases in the laundry baskets at the back of the sanctuary.
Dedication of our Undies and Socks will take place on Sunday, April
12. Thanks for making a difference! Marg Boutnikoff
