Dear People of Ascension,
Before moving on to Holy Week, I want to take a moment to give thanks that we were able to offer a greatly simplified but still meaningful pantry ministry this morning. Deacon Charles Farrell and Daniel 'Dan' Pillar made it happen by acquiring and distributing Jewel gift cards
through the garden gate.
A friend had procured masks and gloves for them.
Sure, we may have been able to do some-thing other or more, and it's beginning to look as if we'll want to do so for May and perhaps beyond. But imagine if our guests had come to the same gate, locked, with no one behind it? I'm grateful for Deacon Farrell's continuing to anticipate and adapt in the present rapidly changing environment. Stay tuned ...
