This week we celebrate the Transfiguration of Our Lord (or as we call it around here, Domingo Gordo), a brief moment of glory before Christ’s passion and resurrection. It’s a beautiful day, but it can also be very tempting. I remember my first field education site was a place that had a line from the Transfiguration story painted in the alcove around the altar: it was, “How good, O Lord, it is for us to be here!” Unfortunately, that’s the furthest thing from the point of the story. Allison is going to be preaching this Sunday, so you know it’s going to be great.
Also, speaking of beautiful and temping, Domingo Gordo is traditionally a day that we celebrate with a rather decadent coffee hour. Jaquan and I will be making pancakes—please bring something delicious to share!
Here are a couple of announcements.
First, Jane Huerta, our awesome administrator, is going to Argentina for a couple of weeks to see where her daughter is studying abroad and to go adventuring in Patagonia. Please keep her in prayer, so that she has a great time and comes back safely.
Secondly, I’d like to form an Easter Planning Task Force. This would simply be a group of four or five people who want to help plan our Easter celebrations. There’s a lot to do, and this year I’d really like to make use of all the talent in this congregation. So, if you’re interested in helping me out, email me. This Task Force will meet April 1st, two weeks before the Easter Vigil, at 10 a.m.
Finally, keep praying and loving one another.
