Blessings! And welcome to our new and improved website! Our Easter celebrations have taken place, springtime and warmer weather are starting to show themselves, and we at Old South Church are reflecting on the events of the last week. We would like to thank each and every one of you who stepped in to make our Holy Week services special. The services became even more meaningful with the participation and coming together of our congregation. Whether you volunteered to do a reading, sing a solo, play accompaniment, donate flowers, share a food dish, or simply join us to reflect and be a part of our community, it takes the whole church to be the church. And that was very evident during our Holy Week services.
April 19-May 17: An Adult Sunday School class will be meeting after worship for one hour. We'll be using Richard Rohr's Embracing an Alternative Orthodoxy, exploring the themes of Atonement Theology, Eco-Spirituality, The Cosmic Christ, Orthodoxy vs. Orthopraxy, and Mysticism over Moralism. Rohr says that this class is an invitation to join him “in undoing some bad theology.” Please let Pastor Mandy know if you’d like to attend as each participant will receive a workbook.
The beautiful flowers you see on our altar are given by members of our church. Flowers can be given in memory of a loved one, in celebration of an event, birthday, anniversary, or just because. If you would like to sign up for altar flowers, the sign up list is downstairs in the fellowship hall, beside the entrance to the kitchen. If you'd like to donate flowers for Easter Sunday, please fill out our order form and return it to a member of the flower committee or drop it off at the church office during our open hours.
