…unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. John 12:24
We’ve almost reached the end of our Lenten pilgrimage. Holy Week, our destination, is in sight. The gospel for Sunday points forward to the great days of the Christian faith.
Spring begins today. The ground is covered still with a thick blanket of snow but the calendar gives us hope for warmer weather.
Sunday morning we will mark the start of a new season of the earth by taking our gathering rite outdoors. Plan to keep your coats with you so that you can spend a few minutes in the fresh air, listening to the sounds of the world around us, listening to the secret thoughts of your heart, listening to the word of God which speaks in the world, and to those secret parts of our selves. Some of the confirmation students will assist in this part of the service.
