Spectacular Sunday at St. Paul's

Today was awesome at St. Paul's. Our youth led the service, with prayers and songs and sermons. Later this week I will post their "Prayers of the People," which they took from the various faith traditions from congregations they've visited this year. The energy was huge and the congregation enthusiastic. Thanks to Janet Legro and all the young adults.

Then we had lunch in the parish hall and walked over to open our new Community Garden. The drizzle did not seem to dissuade many from this epic moment. A good 30-plus folks put in the first planting: lettuce and tomato starts, flowers and a few herbs. 

The lettuce starts, incidentally, were donated by Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson. We hope the community garden will provide food for the neighborhood and a gathering place building community.

Here are a few photos I took today at the garden. Margaret Haupt is holding the first lettuce start before putting in the ground. Lori has a basil start in her hand. The rest of the photos are self-explanatory. Enjoy!
