Palm Sunday and Holy Week
Come together as we begin the journey to the cross and rejoice in the empty tomb! Because of the snow, we missed one of our Lenten services, so we will meet on April 1 for the final Lenten service. Maundy Thursday service will include the traditional foot-washing as we remember Jesus’ meal with his disciples. Good Friday service will be the somber, dramatic reading of the gospel in the Tenebrae service. We celebrate Easter with a sunrise service at 7:17 am, followed by a breakfast. You have two more opportunities to celebrate with a traditional service at 9:15 am and our Contemporary Praise service at 11:45 am. There is a breakfast after the 9:15 am service also.

LCR Contemplative Community – Spring Retreat: April 19
Contemplating The Book of Creation “Remove the sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” Ex 3:5
The Contemplative Community of LCR invites all to a special spring retreat to be held at the Lutheran Church of the Resurrection, on Saturday, April 18th from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm. Leading and facilitating will be Dr. Susan Smith, rector of St Albans Episcopal Church in Bexley (Columbus) OH. Dr Smith (preferring to be called simply Susan) has published many articles and led numerous workshops and retreats over the years. Her particular area of study is creative liturgy, church rituals, prayer and contemplation and has made those areas a particular focus in her message and ministry. Connecting all these areas is her emphasis on our relation to creation as a way of opening up to God’s revelation through the world for us.
The retreat will begin with coffee and pastries at 9:00-9:30 am served in Fellowship Hall. At 9:30 all will gather in the main sanctuary for introductions and Susan’s opening remarks.
The retreat will include talks by Susan, small group break out times, periods of individual contemplation, prayer and journaling. In addition, Susan plans to show a short DVD as a basis for a group discussion. The retreat will conclude with a Eucharistic service outside in the Memorial Garden.
A catered lunch will be served by LaSoupe located in Newtown. Owner/chef, Suzy DeYoung will give a short presentation beforehand on her philosophy and vision behind the founding of the ‘for profit-non-profit’ eatery that donates a bowl of soup to the hungry for every quart sold.
A sign-up fee for $20.00 includes the breakfast and luncheon. Please RSVP by April 15 to allow for reservations and food planning. Payment due on day of retreat.
