This morning we paid honour and tribute to the lives that were lost to racial violence in Charleston, South Carolina. We offered prayers for the victims and their families as well as prayers for the perpetrator of the crime and his family. We took our lead from the families of the victims who offered swift forgiveness to the shooter and decided we could do no less. This is the small visual memorial created by Pastor Janaki that stayed in place throughout the service. Lord have mercy. Christ have mercy. Lord have mercy.

On Easter Sunday we blessed a new removable bowl for our baptismal font designed and created by Marlen Moggach. For those who might not be aware, Marlen is a master potter. A few weeks back, photographer John Mitchell documented some of the work Marlen does and posted those pictures on his blog under the title ‘Portraits of a Potter’. You can read his blog and see those photos by following this link: http://johnmitchellphoto.com/portraits-of-a-potter/. Thank you, Marlen!
