May 24–The 7th Sunday of Easter

The day opened with bright and beautiful sunlight, offering a welcome respite from days of rain. John Barrow brought a lovely vase of flowers arranged by Sandy. Pastor Curtis read scripture and gave the sermon based on the ascension of Jesus, and Pastor Emily offered prayers and assurance of the good news that in Christ we are forgiven. Michael Lancaster led the singing of hymns. Two selections of special music from past services when we could meet as a congregation, with accompanying photos, were added. The Prelude was “Arioso” by J.S. Bach; the anthem was Philip Stopford’s “Do Not Be Afraid.”
