Dear Old Donation,
This week has brought us some truly delightful weather! I hope you all have been able to take some time out of the daily grind to savor it. As for me, I'm writing to you from the benches around our beautiful labyrinth, listening to the buzzing of our honey-making bees. 
This evening you, too, can visit the labyrinth and the bees - before or after our Commission meetings. We'll gather for Holy Eucharist at 6:00pm, dinner at 6:30pm, and meetings at 7:00pm. As always, feel free to join, even if you're not formally a part of a commission. For instance, the Formation Commission is meeting tonight, and we are looking for new members! Come by and see what we're about.
On Sunday, I'll be preaching at 8:00am and 10:00am, and Bob will preach in the Gathering and at Sundays@5. We will have our mandatory VBS Staff Training in the Parish Hall, directly following the 10:00am services. I will lead a brief SafeChurch training that's required by the National Church for all youth and adults who are working with children, followed by Leslie's overview of what to expect for the week of VBS. If you are a youth or adult volunteer, please plan to attend! Pizza lunch and childcare will be provided. 
And now, enjoy your week! I look forward to seeing you tonight and Sunday.
In Christ,
