This Week and Easter Sunday Preparations

Good Afternoon Everyone,

I hope your week is going well so far. I wanted to write to give you a heads up about the community events this week and also send out our preparatory text for Sunday.

Wednesday 6pm Soup And Bread – Marie Morasch will be leading us through the “Stations of the Cross.” I hope you can come and join in with us as we participate in this longstanding practice for Holy Week.

Thursday 6pm Laundry Love – Adam, Henry and Jenn will be out at Riverside Laundry supporting Laundry Love this week. Feel free to drop by and say hello or send folks that way who may need help.

Sunday 6:30am Easter Sunrise Service at Beacon Rock (Picnic Area) Join us for a “A Liturgy for Resurrection” There will be singing, readings, prayers – all geared towards reflecting on Christ’ resurrection and where we have witnessed resurrection in our own lives in the last year. There will be coffee and pastries. More info on the church website.

Sunday 9:30am Easter Brunch – Everyone is invited to bring a brunchy side dish to share (our hospitality crew is bringing the egg casseroles). After breakfast we will head up stairs for our regular meeting for worship at 10:45pm.

Scripture Text for Preparation

“When the sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. They had been saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?” When they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had already been rolled back. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man, dressed in a white robe, sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been raised; he is not here. Look, there is the place they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see him, just as he told you.” So they went out and fled from the tomb, for terror and amazement had seized them; and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.

[And all that had been commanded them they told briefly to those around Peter. And afterward Jesus himself sent out through them, from east to west, the sacred and imperishable proclamation of eternal salvation.]” (Mark 16:1–8)

This Sunday we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. This is Mark’s accounts of Jesus’ resurrection.

Since Caryl was just here doing a Godly Play training I thought we could use the Godly Play wondering questions for our reflection this week:


  • I wonder what part of this story you like best?
  • I wonder what is the most important part?
  • I wonder what part of the story is about you or has you in it?
  • I wonder if there is any part of this story we can leave out and still
  • have all the story we need?

I look forward to seeing you all this week.

In the Light,
