Under the RE Tree: 3/23/20

Last week, there were some fun opportunities to get together. Information about all activities will be shared here (the Monday News Brief), in the Thursday News Brief, and in my Friday RE-blast. And, the best way to make sure folks know what is going on, is to reach-out to your FPL friends – and other friends! Our activities can be shared by all! Spread the word!

This coming week…

Parents – please put Tuesdays at 8pm on your calendars! Jenny and I will continue to host a Zoom parent meet-up. Pajamas welcome. Adult beverage optional (but BYOB, of course). Join Zoom Meeting https://zoom.us/j/701396169  –  Meeting ID: 701 396 169

Weekly Time for All Ages are being offered on Thursdays a 4pm. There is about a half-hour or so of idea sharing, including time for Joys and Concerns. This is a little more robust than Sunday Morning’s “Wonder Box” TfAAs.  Join Zoom Meeting: https://zoom.us/j/394784743  –  Meeting ID: 394 784 743  – One tap mobile: +16465588656,,394784743# US/EST

Did you hear about Lincoln Lights? Folks are re-hanging their holiday lights (of any kind – any reason, any season). This gives folks something to do, it’s fun and joyful, it’s an expression of community solidarity and connection AND it gives us all something to do in the evening. We can drive around and look at each other’s lights!  (Stay tuned – we may be doing an Easter egg hunt in a similar way!)  On Oak Knoll Road, the lights go on around 7pm!

And some people are chalking their walk-ways! And drive-ways! That’s another drive-by activity.

Speaking of chalk, there is a bin of chalk on the wall of the Parish House parking lot. If you missed our gathering – to “Wash our Worries Away” – you can stop by when it’s convenient for you (bring your own water to pour on the drawing and your own chalk, if you like). There are wipes there – please wipe down the bin before and after you select one or two pieces of chalk… and then take the chalk home with you (let me know if we’re getting low, I’ll replenish) POP-UP ACTIVITIES LIKE THIS may happen from time to time… keep checking the News Briefs, my RE-blast on Fridays, your inbox; and check-in with friends to make sure they know what’s going on!

This week’s grace…

  For every cup and plateful,

  God, make me truly grateful.

  Amen

(When this grace becomes familiar, try having every person around your table say one word – see how fast you can say it!)

Peace be upon your heads and in your hearts.
