What's Happening March 30 - April 5, 2015

On Easter Sunday, April 5 at 10:30 am, Rev. Diane Rollert's sermon will be Awaken My People  with music by Sandra Hunt and MSO cellist Gary Russell. How can Moses and the burning bush, Jesus in the desert, Buddha beneath the Bodhi tree, and roses buried beneath the snow offer us a path to becoming fully awake? At 11:45 am there will be an optional communion.

Please bring non-perishable food items to share with the NDG Food Depot. Half of the unidentified cash in this month's collection baskets will be donated to Santropol Roulant which runs collective gardens and promotes urban agriculture, delivers meals on wheels, and operates a bike shop where volunteers teach how to repair a bicycle.
