"Selfie" Peace Greetings Bless Us All 
We have been delighted to see the selfie video expressions of peace from the members and friends of Our Savior’s. There have been grandmothers, toddlers, teenagers and pets! Grab your phone, set it to video, hold it in landscape orientation, smile and say “God’s Peace to You!”

We’re collecting these for worship because they bless all those who share online. Your face, your greeting and your willingness to share is a powerful gift and helps in these crazy days of COVID 19.
