What a joyful, bright and green Sunday this will be.  It seems that all the trees around the church have issued their leaves (and pollen) in the past week.  I've noticed as if for the first time how many beautiful trees we have around the church, not the least of which are the two white birches out front in all their glory. 

The church will be greener on the inside as well.  Almost all the lights in and around the church have been replaced with the latest energy efficient bulbs, thanks to a phenomenal deal from Eversource (formerly NStar).  We expect to cut our electric use by 30% or more.  Look for the newly illuminated tower cross at night which has been out for over a year as we've waited for a good solution to accessing the top of the tower and replace fixtures. 

Best of all is the new life and new light that comes to St. Paul as Clara Miriam Rura is baptized and we welcome in many new members to this beloved congregation. 

A bright future for Saint Paul indeed.

Faithfully and gratefully yours, Ross
