At St. Edward the Confessor, we are community: where ALL are welcomed, ALL are fed, and ALL are loved, and we seek and serve Christ in each other by engaging with the community we live in through outreach.
While physically separate, we are bound together in God’s love. Please join us for online or outdoors for worship on Sunday, 10AM Minnesota time via Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/94331579175

This Sunday’s Readings| March 7, 2021 Third Sunday in Lent
1 Corinthians 1:125
For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.
Quote of the week:
“You are not a human being in search of a spiritual experience. You are a spiritual being immersed in a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Brothers and Sisters,
March is upon us and with this warmer weather I have been looking for signs of Spring. I really do enjoy this time of year as we emerge from our winter and look forward to seeing signs of life in our yards and world. One of the biggest signs of Spring since I have been the priest here at St. Edwards is the humming of the copy machine and seeing the bright pink paper as it prints out the Annual Plant Sale Brochures!!! I am happy to report the machine is working hard getting them printed. I am so excited for our plant sale this year and cant wait.

Lectors for Services
Missing Carts—We are missing our silver carts from the church. We use these carts for many things including our upcoming plant sale. If you know where these carts are please let me know. If we can not locate them we will need to purchase new ones.
Regathering Plan UPDATE—The ECMN has reviewed our plan and has been asking some clarifying questions. I have responded to them and I am awaiting the response. As soon as I have a response a pastoral letter will be sent out to you all.
As cases are being tracked we are looking at a regathering plan to come back to in person services. Kim Cooke Bryan Ripp and I are working on the plan. Once it is completed we will send to the ECMN for approval. I want to be clear that we are not going to rush into bringing people back into the church but we will do so as carefully and safely as possible.
Prayer Request—I ask your prayers for Steve Schoenfelder who is the son in law of Bryan and Susan Ripp. He has been diagnosed with terminal Pancreatic Cancer.
New Parking Lot—We have received a gift from an estate at St. Edwards and the vestry and I have decided to utilize some of those funds to get a new parking lot. The vestry has authorized the beginning work to be done. We will be working with an engineering company to perform the proper testing to ensure we have the best possible parking lot. This will be a long project so look for updates throughout the year.
George Pilkington—I spoke with Cathy and learned that George fell and broke his hip. George is at the Estates of Minnetonka and working hard on his rehabilitation.
If you need a directory please contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org
My prayers are with you always and know that I will keep you up to date as I have more information. I do miss you all and pray for the day when we all can gather together in person but know that even though we are not able to gather my heart is with you.
Peace in Christ,
Fr. Jason B. Lucas
