What awesome weather we’ve been having!  Hope you’ve been able to enjoy it.

A reminder that Lent begins this coming Wednesday, March 1.  There will be a Service of Ashes that evening at 7:00 beginning the journey with Jesus toward the cross.  There is a Lenten Meditation Calendar for you to pick up at church.  It looks like a child’s coloring page with a lily in the midst of it but when you read the directions underneath the picture you’ll see it is much more than that, a way to get closer to Jesus as you make your way to Easter.

At 12:15 this Sunday, Steve Rafter will be leading us in how to incorporate Breath Prayer in our daily lives, what it is and how to use it.  I hope you can join in for that.  The following Sunday Kathy Wood will lead us through Contemplative Prayer.  So many have said they want to “grow spiritually”.  This is one of any opportunities MUMC offers to do that.

Tomorrow, Saturday from 10-1 join with the CRAFTERS preparing for the next Christmas fair.  It truly does have to start this early to insure the wonderful success the fair always is.  It’s a fun group and they would love to have YOU there for all or part of that time.  No experience necessary!

And just a reminder that there is an AP for your smart phone or ipad or similar device that you can download for free with an abundance of information about MUMC including the calendar, the church newsletter, prayer requests, a way to donate online and much more.  Check it out!  Search for Milford UMC at the ap store.  See Rudy if you have any questions.

Blessings on your day!
