Dear Friends,

As Spring approaches, we set our clocks ahead one hour tonight and lose an hour of sleep! To help soothe our crankiness, we'll have assorted delicious wraps after church, with a veggie tray and hummus especially for those who prefer gluten free snacks.

Our service this Sunday springs from Psalm 27 and Mark 4:35-41. Rev. Celie Katovitch is the liturgist this Sunday and will lead us in prayer.

Okawa Tan and the Chancel Choir will lead us through the service with stirring anthems and favorite hymns.

At 9:50 in the Shaw Room: Sr. Barbara Moore, a long time friend of our congregation, reflects on various persons in the scriptures and what they can teach us about wisdom.

At 10:10 in the Church Library, our time of Lovingkindness Meditation will be rooted in prayer by Thomas Merton. All are welcome, and it is just fine to arrive late.

Blessings of God's peace and compassion to all, near and far...

The Rev. Dr. Pat Youngdahl, Pastor
Downtown Presbyterian Church
Rochester, New York
