It was a green garlanded Scott that welcomed us all to worship on this fifth Sunday in Lent.
But it was also March 17 - St. Patrick's Day!
To this end Scott also doffed the traditional Lenten Stole in favour of his green one to match his garland.
Also making a surprise appearance was Rev. Jeff Barlow. Jeff took the pulpit briefly to thank the congregation for their continuing prayers and support of both he and Bernard in this difficult time for them both.
We continue to hold Jeff and Bernard in our prayers.
