Paul’s beautiful description of the evening, “THANK YOU to Ellie Mowry-silverman, Joe Silverman, Pam Will, Michael Graham, Nancy Osborn, Julie Carlson, Jim Osborn, the Rev. Keenan Kelsey, and our spectacular musicians – Ralph Hooper, Jennifer Seaman, Jill Fugaro, Steve Fugaro and all who helped and attended our MAUNDY THURSDAY LAST SUPPER SERVICE. We sat in the middle of the sanctuary – in the center aisle, where we have never sat before… We spoke of dark nights and waiting for dawn… We spoke of fear and comfort… We washed feel and shared blessings… We sang and listened to a beautiful song that evoked the Quiet Upper Room… We laughed and cried… We broke bread and shared the cup, remembering a night so long ago when Jesus longed for a different outcome, but drew comfort in the company of his ragamuffin friends… Walt Whitman once wrote, ‘We were together. I forget the rest.’ We remember the rest, and we especially remember that we were together, as Christ and his friends were together…”
We lifted our glasses in love and blessing to ALL
During his strong and beautiful Palm Sunday message, Pastor Paul includes a moving story of attending Deputy Sheriff Ryan Zirkle’s memorial service and the End of Watch ceremony. If you weren’t able to experience the message in the Sanctuary, this is the next best thing.
Palm Sunday, March 25 . A lovely service PLUS a wonderful ceremony of installation, ordination, and blessing of our new roster of Deacons and Elders. More photos and description here: sausalitopres.org/deacons-and-session/
