Thursday Thoughts – May 6, 2021

We are celebrating Holy Humour this Sunday, and in case you thought this was something I dreamed up, you can read more about it here.

We will share a special Mother’s Day Prayer

We are celebrating communion, so bring bread and juice, cookies and milk, crackers and tea, whatever you like. ALL are welcome to share.

It’s also my last Sunday service before sabbatical; I’ll be working next week till Thursday, but next Sunday Jessie Crabtree will lead you in worship.
