Volunteers To Help Water
St. Richard Garden Club
It is that time of year when the bushes and flowers are blooming! And thanks to the Garden Club and our Maintenance Crew, who removed & trimmed some bushes, the church grounds are lovely! In order to keep all the plants healthy & beautiful we are in need of Volunteers To Help Water. This entails being on a two person watering team and coming to Church to water twice a month, during the warm summer months.You do not have to be a gardener - just love the outdoors and keeping the grounds looking fresh. If you have questions or want to help, contact Carol at 330-3947 See you in the garden!

Summer Sabbath

In the Judeo-Christian tradition, the idea of the Sabbath is central. The Jewish tradition in which Jesus grew up taught that the Sabbath is a time of rest and reward. The Sabbath is rooted in the seventh day of creation, when God did three things: God rested, blessed and made time holy. It was on the seventh day that God rested in the wonder of creation.

This is a Sabbath time for us. It is a time to stop and savor life in the summer sun. Let us use this sacred summer time to pause and acknowledge the good things in our lives and our lavish, wondrous Creator. In the Sabbath time we care for the seed of eternity planted deep in our souls. We make time holy, letting the fertile ground of our lives lie fallow. Unless we are willing to be still, to withdraw from our busy-ness, to rest in the Sabbath teaches us, we lose our very selves.

May we be aware of God’s presence along our way, helping us to discover the peace and rest some have lost or never known, renewing our covenant of peace with all created things.
