It seems strange to send Easter things to you on Maundy Thursday. It feels like we’re jumping ahead to the last few pages of a novel! But alas…
Besides the Easter Sunday prayer guide and Reflection in Solitude, I will attach in a separate email – to those on our mailing list – a document that has the contributions from our Easter sharing.
I would strongly encourage you not to open the Easter Sharing document until Easter Day.
One option is to print them, cut out each offering, and “hide” them around your house. Put one as a bookmark in the book you are reading. Place one in the fridge by the milk, or where you make tea/coffee. Nestle them in cups and plates and pot plants. Throughout the day, they will be uncovered for you to read and savour. This is what I’m going to be doing anyway and I highly recommend it.
I pray these final days in this holy season are rich in prayer and reflection for you. May we contemplate God’s love poured out continually and in abundance.
In grace and peace,
Rev. Christine Gilbert Minister of the Word St. Andrews by the Sea Uniting Church 92 Jetty Road, Glenelg SA 5045 P: (08) 8295 1771 E: firstname.lastname@example.org
