For those of us who are weary of winter, bad news - it is not over. Last week Punxsutawney Phil made his annual pilgrimage out of his hiding place, saw his shadow, and dived back into his hole in the ground - six more weeks of this cold, white stuff on the ground, if you buy into the groundhog’s prediction. Weary of winter? Jesus had an antidote. He too became weary at times, and he did not moan and groan about it. He did something. Made a mini-pilgrimage of his own. See Mark 1: 29-39 to uncover Jesus’ answer to weariness, confusion, and anxiety. We are merely one small decision away from making that very same, refreshing journey. What is holding us back? We will talk about that this Sunday.
And, lest we forget, FPCE is “home” to Boy Scout Troop #23. Charlie Huse, Wayne Dean, Liz Held, and John Foster are members of our congregation who work with the young men. Tomorrow is Scout Sunday and a few of the scouts will assist in leading worship. It is a special Sunday for them, you can make it even more special by joining us.
See you in church,
