Patricia and Jim are back in Columbia County and couldn’t be happier! It feels like we’re in tune with this issue’s theme, Renewal, wonderfully exemplified by Brian Boom’s photo of the benches for the new prayer circle, freshly displayed in the snow in Brian and Lucy Eldridge’s Capital Campaign Report; Fr. John’s essay on being in the present–a moment to moment renewal; and Judy Whitbeck’s report on returning to the Vestry as our new Sr. Warden. (Congratulations Judy!) The feature by Dale Peterson on the stone quarry outing is all about the source of our new Church Entrance, accessible to all.
We’ve wanted to have the Christmas candlelight shown for some time, so many thanks to Wendy Langlois for her photos. Green shoots are revealing themselves and Easter is coming! Renewal, indeed!
Please take note of the events of Holy Week in the new Calendar, including the Seder Supper hosted by Jim Hedrick. Not every church has that, but we do!
