“Neighbor, hi neighbor, God is good....”

So Rev Scott directs us to turn to each other with these

words.... in the church....and presumably as we walk

through the world. Rev Scott made us think.... talking about

how women and African Americans were only granted the

right to vote in the 20th century. Interestingly, Deborah was

an early leader of Israel, and not because she was married

to a leader.

In our joys and concern,

* joy and thanks for spring and the Salvation Army and the

first year of the Broadbent’s grandaughter

* We continue to pray for Nancy’s student with brain cancer

and for Nancy’s mom. We keep Joyce in our prayers as she

struggles with breast cancer and Dianna with stage 4 liver

cancer. We also keep Jim Dugan’s father in law Richard in

our prayers.

The pancakes were fluffy and the sausage and fruit were perfect for Sunday brunch last

weekend. Big thanks to our chief griddle man, Larry, and to everyone who brought their gifts

and appetites.

We continue to welcome Reverend Scott to the pulpit. Our NEW TESTAMENT LESSON:

Matthew 28:18-20  and his sermon is entitled: “Ruth, Diversity and Christianity”. Carolyn Tyson is our lay worship leader.

Our Lenten book discussion continues to focus around Richard Rohr’s “Falling Upward: A

Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life.” Our next meeting is Thursday April 4.

For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love, and

of self discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7
