E-Bulletin - May 27, 2019
We hope you are having a wonderful day off today! Memorial Day comes at the just right time for us in terms of "thinking about summer," but it is more than a day off. It is a gift to us given with the intention that we remember those who have died for the sake of others. We've posted a video at the bottom of this flocknote that we hope you will watch as a way of praying and reflecting on the gift of the many men and women that we commemorate today. May their example lead us to also sacrifice of ourselves for the sake of others.
