Give Blood, Give Life- 7 May!
The last few Mays, we held blood drives and MLC members had all-time record donations in honor of our very own Luke George. Let's do it again in celebration of Luke's health! Tessa will be scheduling between the services in the Commons starting this weekend.  Please consider donating blood on Sunday 7 May.  Mark your calendar and sign-up soon for your preferred scheduling. 
From the Vicar
Peace Be With You
"Peace be with you." These are the first words that the risen Christ speaks to the disciples. He tells them that they have the peace of God with them. That peace is forgiveness. The resurrected Lord is the one whom Isaiah called "The Prince of Peace." He brings the disciples freedom from the turmoil that their broken nature has caused. He brings the same peace to you. His resurrection has brought you the peace that only The Prince of Peace can give-forgiveness. And He gives His peace to you by His Holy Spirit who dwells in you.
