Greetings to all!
Sometimes in the middle of Lent, or in the middle of life, the journey
can seem a bit wearying. Ann Weems reflects on this experience in a
reflection titled, "Come Unto Me."
When the journey gets too hard, when we feel depleted, when our
compassion turns into complaining, when efforts toward justice and
mercy seem to get us nowhere, it's time to remember the humility part
- that it is God who has made us and not we ourselves; that the
saving of the world or even one part of it is not on our shoulders.
It is then we can come unto him, and he will give us rest. With rest
we'll remember what it is we are about.
(from "Kneeling in Jerusalem")

SUNDAY CONVERSATIONS continue this Sunday, March 7, 10am, in Trinity

the conversation, or just listen in.
CHILDREN'S CHOIR practices continue this Sunday, March 7, 10am, in
Trinity Hall. The children are working toward an upcoming Sunday
morning presentation. All children through elementary age are
encouraged to participate.
WALNUT HILL CHURCH SURVEY - Be sure to participate in the Walnut Hill
Church Survey, the first step in our current inquiry to discern Walnut
Hill's present strengths and future dreams. You may complete the
survey online at www.walnuthillchurchky.org/survey.html or you may
complete and return a paper copy of the survey (copies available by
request from the church office). Either way, we hope you will
participate in this and other activities related to the inquiry
process as we build on the past and present to envision the future.
CHILE EARTHQUAKE - Our readers are certainly aware of the recent and
ongoing tragedy in Chile. Persons attending Walnut Hill this Sunday,
March 7, will have opportunity to donate toward relief efforts via
Church World Service. For information regarding the efforts of Church
World Service in Chile, visit www.churchworldservice.org.
EASTER LILIES - Easter will be here soon, and with it comes the
opportunity to sponsor lilies for the decoration of the Walnut Hill
Sanctuary. Cost of sponsorship is $14/plant. Sponsors are welcome to
take and enjoy their plants at home after the Easter holiday. Contact
Lee Tucker to sponsor a lily for Easter.
