At 11:15 am — Coffee Time! We will gather outdoors on the rectory lawn for the first time in a long time, and we hope many of you can join us (including those who don’t feel comfortable worshiping indoors . . . please come if you can). We cannot have refreshments to share, but if you would like you can bring your own if you’d like — and bring a chair if you’d like. We also need to continue to be socially distant.
At 3:00 pm — We will honor Joan Schmidt as the St. Andrew’s recipient of the diocesan David Hegg LIfetime Achievement Award. This award is given to those who are 60 or older who have been long-standing members of a congregation and who have made significant contributions to our church. Joan certainly deserves this honor. So please join Bishop Hughes and the Senior Ministries Committee of the diocese in this virtual celebration. You can do so by going to the diocesan YouTube channel: youtube.com/c/dionewark at 3 pm on Sunday.
Today’s photo, “from small seed to mighty tree”, is mixture of several photos. The tree in the background is from a larger photo by Susnpcs at Pixabay. The hand in the foreground is also from a larger picture by Marcos Oleveira at Unsplash, and the mustard seed was created with Adoble Illustrator and all elements joined using both Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop.
Just think, all you have to do is plant a seed and you get all of that without all the technology.
