Psalm 116:1, 10-17       (please sing together)                        #352


Lord, from the depths to thee I cried.  My voice, Lord, do thou hear: Unto my supplication’s voice give an attentive ear.

Lord, who shall stand, if thou, O Lord, should’st mark iniquity? But yet with thee forgiveness is, that feared thou mayest be.

I wait for God, my soul doth wait, my hope is in his word.
More than they that for morning watch, my soul waits for the Lord;

I say, more than they that do watch the morning light to see. Let Israel hope in the Lord, for with him mercies be.

THE GREAT TRINITY BOOK SALE will be held in Bender Hall on Saturday, May 5th, from 9:30 to 3:00.  To make it ‘great’, we need lots of items —novels, mysteries, classics, romances, ‘book club books’, cookbooks, gardening books, books for children, CDs, etc.  Please bring them in any time after Easter, from April 10th to May 3rd. (It is hard to sort items brought in at the last minute.  And sadly, some books just won’t sell—encyclopedia sets, text books, manuals, magazines.  Please don’t bring these; recycle them elsewhere.)

HELP WANTED: If you can help sort books in the week before the sale, help set up on the evening of Friday, May 4th, or help during the actual sale (either a morning or an afternoon shift) please speak to Sue or Bob Taylor (613-230-3903), or Paul Merriam.

CALLING ALL GARDENERS TO HELP WORLD VISION! We have received a very enthusiastic acknowledgement from World Vision for our generous donation of $600 to Sheila’s community at Christmas. (See the scrapbook at the back of the church, and keep your spare change coming!) It is suggested that we might continue our support by independently growing tomatoes from seeds provided by World Vision over the summer and donating the proceeds back to the project. If anyone would like to grow tomatoes in their garden over the summer to sell at church or to friends and neighbors, would they please contact Janet Hemings (822-4697) or as she will be away for a couple of weeks, Victoria Scott (730-5517) and they will provide you with the seeds.


LENTEN BOOK STUDY:  I invite you to read Take this bread: A radical conversion, written by Sara Miles.  There will be an evening of conversation on Tuesday April 17th from 7 to 9 p.m. to share your thoughts on what this author had to say. The book can be purchase online at Chapters for $15, Kobo for $10, or from Amazon Kindle for $10. If you want to borrow the book speak with Rev Andrea. Hope to see you there!
