A Word about Easter This Year

We know Easter will be different this year - churches will be empty, brunch gatherings will be smaller, the mood will be subdued. The holiday somehow seemed less lofty - kind of "deflated" this year.


But we will celebrate Easter - just not on April 12th. We will celebrate when we can come together again for worship and when there is news that the major danger of this pandemic has eased (at least for the moment).


Then we will hold hands and mourn what's lost, give thanks for what good we have seen and celebrate the resurrection that God works and is working in our lives, our commun-ities, our nation and our world.


We are a Resurrection People and Alleluia is our song!  

Earth Day is Coming

Wednesday, April 22nd 

On April 22nd this year people around the world will mark the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. Alleluia, Wow, how far we have (and have not) come in 50 years!


Here are some Earth Day (or any day) actions you can take:


- Re-examine your efforts to reduce, reuse and/or recyle. Perhaps it is time to start composting, try meatless Mondays (or Tuesdays...).


- Reconsider your driving habits. You've been at home more lately - how does that impact (negatively and positively) your vehicle-based lifestyle? What might you do differently?


- Recommit to working to protect and repair the parts of the environment for which you are responsible. Dispose of trash properly, keep yard runoff to a minimum this summer, advocate and vote for sustainably measures.     


- And as spring comes, enjoy the beautiful world we live in. It's God's gift to us - and we can be a gift to it too. 

Gardening Season is Right Around the Corner!

St. Peter's is the home of the South Hill Community Gardens, a gardening collective of people who love the earth,and all the good things it produces.

 

Reservations for garden boxes are now being taken. The cost of a 10' x 10' box is $30/year. Some help with shared garden chores is expected from gardeners of the Community Gardens.  

 

Please contact the church at 651-439-2160 or use the button below to connect with the South Hill Community Garden Treasurer and reserve a plot. They tend to fill up quickly!
