The link for this week’s worship is:
Are you as resilient as a tulip?
They’ve had a particularly challenging spring this year – early warmth and sun made them pop up; then they froze under fresh snow; grew again; froze again; and provided snacks for hungry rabbits – but they’re still growing!
Or maybe you’re as persistent as a dandelion or a daisy? As eager as rhubarb?
Earth Day was marked this past week. We know that our existence, and the planet we leave for future generations depends on our actions and lifestyle today and every day.
What descriptors might you find for the world around you?
Try using your body as you pray
As I mention in this week’s worship service, the online educational event I was able to attend last week (sponsored by Biblical Storytellers International) was a good reminder of how important it is to use our whole selves in worship. So, for the next few weeks, our opening prayer will have actions to accompany our words.

TOWN HALL MEETINGS
Setting directions for the mission, vision and key strategic priorities for the national United Church. Members and adherents of the United Church are invited to participate in the Town Hall sessions. This is an opportunity for those at the grassroots level of the church to let our leaders know what priorities, mission and vision we believe should be in a new strategic plan.
The Town Hall meetings will be held May 1st at 11am and May 4th at 5:30 pm. Registration is required to attend. Our region (for purposes of registration) is Prairie to Pine.
I am holding each of you in prayer.
May the season of resurrection be filled with surprising joy, with tender hope, with budding faith – and for the farmers and gardens, may we enjoy days of sunshine and nights of rain!
Yours in the name of the risen Christ,
(Rev.) Teresa Moysey
