CAROLYN’S CORNER

“Lent is a spiritual “spring cleaning”: we enter the inner places where we are stuck or muddled, and we clear away the clutter so that God moves a little more freely through us.

When we look at ourselves deeply and honestly, we all meet our own clutter. In this work, we first find ourselves alone and exposed to the inner elements: our vices, our confusion, feelings we’d prefer to mute. And this is the way it must be; to explore and heal ourselves, we must meet ourselves head on, alone, in what may feel like a very wild place.

Open your heart and mind to your entire self — both good and bad — and quietly name what you find there. And remember that you are not alone in this work. God goes with you, moving gently and compassionately through your inner world, guiding and nurturing your Lenten journey.”

How can you clean out the dust from your soul this Lent?

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Carolyn

ATTENTION COIN COLLECTORS!

Attention coin collectors! PVCC received a coin collection as a donation.  The collection is the 50-state quarter series. Each quarter is uncirculated, sealed in a hard plastic carrier to protect against wear and tarnishing. All but five state quarters are present. The District of Columbia and five territory quarters are  included. Ebay has several collections available. Most comparable is a complete 50-state + territories  listed at $29.95. The ebay collection is in a book, not individually sealed and protected.

Also available is an extra set of four 2008 quarters (New Mexico, Arizona, Alaska, and Hawaii), a single California, and eight Kansas quarters.

Additionally, there are a number of small canvas bags, and 6 gift boxes.

Here’s what we’d like to get for the various coins:

  • 45-state collection plus territories (51 coins): $25.00 •   2008 quarters: $2.00  •   Individual extras: $.50 each  •   Bags/boxes, free with while supply lasts, when purchasing coins

PARDON OUR DUST!

The new flooring has been ordered and we should start construction on the new expanded Grace Room in the near future. The men’s group worked on Saturday 2-21-15 to move out the book cases in the Grace Room and clean out the Serenity Room of all the items that were stored in there for the garage sale. If everything goes well, we will be done by Palm Sunday. John Rogers
