Not being forgiven can be a very dark and confining place. And not being able to forgive can create its own kind of claustrophobia. We're called to seek forgiveness and to forgive others. When people are able to forgive there is a sense of release, a sense of openness and light. This is resurrection

The Bishop Is Coming! The Bishop Is Coming!
On April 26th The Rt. Rev. Andrew Doyle will come for an Episcopal visit with our church. He is the ninth bishop of the Diocese of Texas. We will have an unusual afternoon service at 5:00 pm. Bishop Doyle will preside at the service which will include Confirmations and Reaffirmations.

After the service there will be a jazz band, and a light dinner on the grounds. The Bishop will share his vision of the future with us. Please plan to attend this service and stay for the dinner. Help us support the confirmands and visit with Bishop Andy. 
Gift Cards for the Needy
Fr. Billy requests that we donate gift cards from HEB, preferably in the $10 denomination Please place them in the alms basins, and indicate the amount of the card. They enable us to help those who come to us in need.

News from the Atrium

Dear Friends,

The paint is done and the new shelves are going in!  It feels like a real Easter/Spring clean in there.  What a gift that all is.
We will celebrate being in a new and yet familiar space this Sunday.  So we will meet in the atrium, same times: 

Level I (3-6 yo) at 8:30 am :
Level II (6 yo and above) at 9:15 to 10:15 am :
Claire Jones is our Level II parent this Sunday.

Additionally, Bishop Andy Doyle will preside at a special 5pm Eucharist this Sunday afternoon.  If the weather holds out, we'll meet afterwards at the playground and picnic tables for a potluck supper.  Don't feel bad about just coming for the potluck, if you can't make the evening service.

One change: the shoe cubbies are now just  outside the atrium.  I'm hoping this will help with keeping a quiet atmosphere inside the atrium.  Parent helpers: when an adult comes to pick up their child, gently escort the child out to the shoe shelves.
