This Sunday our guest preacher is the Rev. Kelly Demo

demowho has been an itinerant preacher for 15 of her 17 years of ordained ministry, first traveling the dioceses of Kansas and Arkansas as Cannon for Youth and then, for the past seven years, as an advocate for two different international aid organizations. Her passion for this work began when she lived for a year in Sierra Leone, West Africa teaching at an agricultural training center. Since then she has traveled to many South and Central American countries to listen and learn from the stories of those living the reality of poverty. She currently works for Children International as a facilitator and fundraiser. She lives with her husband, Gar, also an Episcopal priest, along with their two practically perfect children, Riley (13) and Asher (9).

Scripture Study continues Sunday, March 23 at 9:15 a.m.

The Revised Common Lectionary graciously appoints three readings (with a Psalm) each Sunday. During the Lenten Sunday liturgies, we will be hearing a Gospel reading and one lesson from either the Old or New Testaments.  The third lesson appointed for the day—the one not read in the service—will be explored during Adult Formation class time each Sunday. Following are the lessons to be discussed:
March 30—Ephesians 5:8-14
April 6—Ezekiel 37:1-14
April 13—Philippians 2:5-11
