“Be ashamed when you sin, don’t be ashamed when you repent. Sin is the wound, repentance is the medicine. Sin is followed by shame; repentance is followed by boldness. Satan has overturned this order and given boldness to sin and shame to repentance.”
Saint John Chrysostom

We are missing the green tablecloths that we use in the Parish Hall, if anyone knows where they are, please let Brenda Raine know.
As you clean, remember our yard sale coming this summer. 
 As you get new towels, 
change the curtains, switch bedspreads, etc. 
Remember to keep the old for us. If you 
“need” a new fishing rod, lawnmower, or yard tool, remember that  
we could sell the old one.
