Sunday, April 6, 2015- Resurrection of our Lord- Pastor Kate Costa
“Just one more chapter, please!” My dad read us stories at bedtime, long after we were past the age that most parents read goodnight stories to their little ones. I remember even in middle school begging for just one more page, one more chapter, one more exciting tale to keep us up long after we should have had sugar plums dancing in our heads. Whether it was the Box Car Children or Nancy Drew or Harry Potter, we had to know more. And as an adult I’ve been known to stay up late with a good novel, saying to myself, “Just one more chapter, and that’s it. One more!” Do you ever get that feeling? Or maybe for you it’s watching the Big Bang Theory or House of Cards? Now you don’t even have to press the button- Amazon gives you “one more chapter” automatically and you’re hooked for another 45 minutes!
Unfortunately the Noon service at Yowell Meadow Park has been cancelled due to rain and possible thunderstorms. Please spread the word and join us for the 7pm service. Thank you!
Before you go to bed this Saturday, March 7, 2015….
There will be no events today, Feb. 26. The schools are closed and we will follow their judgement. See you next week!
Due to the poor road conditions, service and Sunday School will be cancelled for Sunday, Feb. 22, 2015. If you would still like to get out and are able to do so safely, services are still on at St. Stephen Episcopal Church and we encourage you to visit our ecumenical partner. If you choose to stay home, you can read this mornings readings here.
Prayer of the day:
Holy God, heavenly Father,
in the waters of the flood you saved the chosen,
and in the wilderness of temptation you protected your Son from sin.
Renew us in the gift of baptism.
May your holy angels be with us,
that the wicked foe may have no power over us,
through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever. Amen.
We will be having Ash Wednesday service this evening at 7pm. Please, though, be careful as you travel and use your best judgement about whether it is safe for you to be out. May God bless you in your Lenten journey.
Unfortunately our Pancake Dinner is cancelled for tonight due to the poor road conditions.
If you’d still like to go out, check out the spaghetti dinner tonight at Reformation Lutheran Church from 5-7pm. Freewill offering benefits the Culpeper Food Closet.
Or, if you’d like to stay in, here are some recipes for Shrove Tuesday traditions across the world.
