My Dear Friends in Christ,

 

I want to thank everyone who assisted on Ash Wednesday. In addition to two full liturgies at Noon and 7:00 p.m. with the celebration of the Eucharist and distribution of Ashes, we offered Ashes-to-Go at the Tri-Rail Station, Drive-Thru-Ashes in our parking lot for those traveling on Sample Road, from the Holy Grill in conjunction with serving breakfasts at both Parkway United Methodist and St. Martin's Episcopal Church, and at St. Laurence Chapel for those homeless using their daytime resources. Then, last night, Ashes also were offered from the Holy Grill to the homeless who were registered to stay overnight at St. Laurence Chapel.

We are letting people know that the Church will join them in the rough and tumble and the hurried and harried world. Praise God!

Our efforts were noticed by CBS Channel 4 and then picked up by social media blogs. We must never think that because ours is a small community that we cannot do great things. We are the Body of Christ in the World. It is our calling to offer healing salve to the broken and the unfortunate. In doing so, we make a difference in the lives of others to the glory of God.

In Christ's Love,
