PARISH LIFE NOTES
WEDDING ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION. During announcements this morning we will celebrate and bless David and Janice on the occasion of their 40th wedding anniversary. “Hugs and Kisses” all around!
“TOHU VA-VOHU” are the Hebrew words for “formless” and “void” in the English translation of Genesis 1.2 which describes the problem God faced in the beginning of creation: “The earth was without form and void” Tohu va-vohu. This also describes the problem we are facing in the garden at St. Mary’s… (See photo below).
So how did God go about solving the problem? As we read on in Genesis 1, on the first three days of creation God created order, and then, on the next three days, God filled the emptiness. On the sixth day, God made man in his own image, male and female He created them, God blessed them, and commanded them to continue His good work by creating order out of the chaos, and to fill the emptiness. This is what we hope to see happen this week. Watch this space as the St. Mary’s garden takes new shape and is filled!
CONDOLENCES. Former St. Mary’s parishioner Sherri passed away on Sunday, May 30. Please remember the family, especially Brittany and Noah in your prayers. May she rest in peace and rise in glory.
