This Sunday is Trinity Sunday and Memorial Day weekend. Currently the weather looks rainy, so watch for announcements about having to move inside for 10:00am. Our Historic Traditions group has placards about deceased military veterans from ODEC that will be on display. Fred, Ashley, and I are planning a conversational sermon regarding the Holy Trinity. We will have special prayers for those who have sacrificed, even their lives, in support of our nation and common life.
CLEAN the BAY WEEK
Old Donation has for many years been a “Pearl Faith” congregation, participating with the Chesapeake Bay and Lynnhaven River Now organizations to do environmental recovery work. This next week is the annual “Clean the Bay” effort. We’ve registered a clean-up team for picking up litter. We will have a team of workers out from 9:00 until noon next Monday morning (May 31), location to be announced. This is for youth and for families and for everyone to come and join ODEC to make a difference! Watch for more details on Saturday for where exactly to meet. But please reserve a couple hours for Monday morning before the BBQ grill gets going! You will feel so much better eating, knowing you’ve already made the world a better place.
Keep the faith, but don’t keep it to yourself!
