Thank You and Change

Thank You and Change

I had several ideas for what to write about today, but I got distracted and, well, you know what happens when you get distracted!  I would like to thank all the folks who worked so hard to create such a meaningful Lenten season, Holy Week and Easter.  We had the communication team which connected everyone to the various events, volunteers who did the egg hunt, volunteers who showed up on a chilly Saturday to weed and mulch the flower beds, mowers and trimmers, the front “bank” man, the lily grower (really?), the Fellowship Committee who prepared breakfast on Easter, parents who brought their children to the pastor’s class for baptism, not to mention the Maundy Thursday and Good Friday services, the Chancel Choir, Kirkringers, Joyful Spirits Band and other musicians who provided so much beautiful music, readers and leaders for the worship services, including the Bernauers who provided a reflective service for Wednesday nights, the Worship Committee, actors for Easter, and the staff: Ben, Rebecca, Mary Catherine, Paige, and Deby.  It was truly a cast of dozens! Again, thank you one and all!

This is the first week of the new system for delivering the weekly newsletter.  If you have an email address that we don’t have at the church, please call and we can add it to the eCaller mailing list.  It’s our hope to provide an electronic copy of the newsletter to each person in a household who has access to email, not just the head of the household.  This may take some getting used to (all change does!), but it is a good stewardship decision as well as a more effective way to communicate with everyone in the congregation.  Many of the articles from the Caller will be in the eCaller, but some of in house notices will appear as links (like my Distractions!)  When you click on a link in the eCaller, you will be connected directly to the church’s website where more information is available (including my Distractions!)  Give it a try every week for a few months and see how it works!  Of course, we will continue to have a limited supply of hard copies of the Caller available on Sunday mornings and those without email access will receive a copy through the mail as always.

I’m sure there was something else really important that I meant to write about as well, but it will have to wait until I remember what it was.  Maybe next time!
