Classes resume 9am Sunday, April 10th in Parish Hall

Father Riley will continue his Episcopal informational classes this Sunday at 9am in the Parish Hall.  Everyone is welcome to join us.

From the "Forward: Day by Day"


1 Peter 2:10 Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy but now you have received mercy.
I sometimes forget that it is still Easter. I forget that the transformation of Jesus from death to resurrection is my transformation—and the transformation of the whole church. In this season, in the waking world, flowers open to announce new life and help to proclaim the story of resurrection.
As the daylight hours grow longer, tipping past the equinox, the whole world declares the reality of resurrection from the dead. When I forget that we’re in the fifty days of Easter, and that I too am resurrected with Christ, nature offers plenty of reminders of the mercy of God: reminders that we are God’s resurrected people, walking around like spring flowers, shining God’s presence in this great, living Easter proclamation of life.
