LEGOS for Lent
.… yes you read that right! I’ve found a really fun Lent series for kids based on Legos, a lot of Legos, so I need to start collecting donations now. If you have any Legos that you are ready to pass on I’d be grateful. I could also use a volunteer Lego organizer or two so anyone who loves sifting through piles of Legos to find the right bits let me know…. Katherine+
Episcopal Relief and Development
Urgent calls for peace in the land of the Holy One
Religious and political leaders have stepped up their calls for a permanent ceasefire to the three-week-long conflict between Israel and Hamas, as the number of casualties topped 7,000 and the death toll reached 1,200. “The continued and escalating violence in the land of the Holy One, the slaughter of innocents by actions of both sides, and the rigidity and absence of true political leadership is making the world weep,” Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori wrote in a statement e-mailed to Episcopal News Service.
