We are currently reading the Bishop's book selection for Lent: Now You See It: How Technology and Brain Science Will Transform Schools and Business for the 21st Century by Cathy Davidson. Of this book Bishop Greg writes; "And though not expressly in the title, I would add "church" to that list.
I commend it to you and I hope we will read it together as we have in the past, sharing insights, struggles, disagreements, and challenges along the way. All are welcome to join us at 10:00AM for Eucharist and then for our book discussion group at 11:00AM every Wednesday.

You are enthusiastically invited to participate in this annual project that both St. John’s and St. Benedict’s have jointly provided, through the generosity of their congregations. The Easter Baskets bring joy to families in Thurston county that would likely be unable to enjoy without our support. As many empty baskets as possible will be provided at each church for you to simply pick up, take home for a family project of filling them with traditional Easter Basket items, as well as other helpful items.

Dear Ones:

It is week two of Lent. How is your desert walk going?

Soup Suppers begin this Thursday. We have a few folks signed up. Hope that you will join us.

I am inviting your prayers for our three folks that are on a faith journey this Lent: One person is being received into the Episcopal Church, one is being confirmed and one will be baptized this Easter Vigil. If you don’t know what the Vigil is, you will be hearing more at church in weeks to come.

Lent is a forty day retreat to bring oneself into right relationship and solidarity with God, neighbor, especially our neighbors that are vulnerable and in need, and creation. This is solemn time of preparation will give each of us a chance to prepare ourselves for new life.
