Thought for the Day, April 1, 2020

Thought for the day: Humor. Today’s April Fool’s Day. I’ve noticed that having a good laugh can make all the difference. What makes you laugh? I thought ​THIS ​ joke about pajamas during shelter in place was funny. How about you? What makes you laugh? Find something that makes you smile today!


● Useful Links: ○ An ​article ​about the grief of this time called “The Discomfort You’re Feeling is Grief.”

○ Another ​article​, called “Thinking About Good Friday During a Pandemic” was meaningful to me.

○ Next week is Holy Week. I liked ​this ​idea for a Holy Week centerpiece at home.

● Next Sunday is Palm Sunday! We want to see you waving your palms. Wave a tree branch, or a homemade palm, or even a streamer. Say “Hosanna!” and take your video. Email your short videos to ​ or ​ ​ ​UPDATE​: Susan tells me she’s not gotten any of these! Send your Hosannas!

● ONE ON ONE Meetings: Sign up for a one-on-one meeting with Pastor Traci! The schedule is ​HERE.
