I am joyfully soaking in this glorious sunny afternoon. I hope that you get an opportunity that makes you glad to be alive this weekend.
This Sunday, our church member Lynn Brandt will be sharing his views in a sermon entitled “ A Naturalist Looks At The Seventh Principle.” He had a big smile on his face as he was sharing with me about it, so I think you will enjoy his eagerness to share this topic.
In our Second Hour, join Lynn for a chance to “Shout over the Back of the Elephant” and share your thoughts on his message. There will also be a gathering of Circle Way. Classes for Children and Youth begin at 11:15am, after Children’s Chapel at 11am.
And at 12:15 our ANNUAL CHILI COOK-OFF begins. Come eager to taste a wide variety of homemade chili. A tasty treat for the whole family.
I will be doing something special for our UU cousins in Des Moines. Their minister is on sabbatical for this winter and spring. The ministers in Iowa have an agreement that we will help each other’s churches when we are gone on sabbatical. So I am taking my turn to go and preach in Des Moines.
Today I’ll be at Cup of Joe for our TGIF time from 4:30 to 6pm. Feel free to stop by and enjoy the company.

In Your Thoughts & Prayers:
Glenyce Butschy, who had another bad fall in her house, and injured her shoulder.
Esther’s sister, who is dying of cancer.
“Happy Birthday” was sung to both Leo Gibbons and Carolyn Hildebrandt this week at Family Choir, and to Kendra last Sunday. If you missed out, make sure you wish them lots of happiness in the coming year.
Please help us live our vision of being a place of caring, let us know of people who should be included in the Pastoral Update—even if its yourself! We want to know. Esther Kieffer and Rev. Eva.
May we all reach out, in spite of earth’s imperfections for what is good and lasting and true in life.
