THIS WEEK’S WORSHIP SERVICE
The sanctuary will be open from 10:00-10:30 am for a time of quiet meditation, interspersed with music and readings, coordinated by Bill Braun. It is a wonderful opportunity to pause and reflect for a short while – to soothe our spirits and have a brief respite in our busy lives – a worship gem we hope you will attend.

Our Mothers’ Keepers
Rev. Megan Lloyd Joiner
Jesse Greist, Linda Pawelek
On Mother’s Day, we consider the work of Julia Ward Howe, whose 1870 Mother’s Day Proclamation called on the women of America to renounce war and protect their children from violence. To what are we called today? How do we keep alive the stories of those mothers of generations past and live into the promise of peace?
We also welcome new members.

The Secret Garden
April 29 – May 1 and May 6 – 8, 2016
The Secret Garden is a musical based on the classic novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett. A rich and lyrical musical score (book by Marsha Norman, music by Lucy Simon) tells the story of Mary Lennox, a young English girl. Raised in British colonial India, Mary is orphaned and sent back to England to live with her mysterious, reclusive Uncle Archibald. As she explores the haunted house on the moors of Yorkshire, Mary uncovers many secrets—including a long-neglected secret garden. With the help of new friends, and a healthy dose of magic, Mary helps to bring the secret garden and her uncle back to life in this haunting story of love and transformation.
Evening performances: Friday and Saturday 7:30 pm. Matinees: Saturday and Sunday 2:30 pm.
