"The Cross and The Lynching Tree"
Book Study

April 2 at 12:00 pm Session I; Chapters 1-3
April 9 at 11:30 Session II; Chapters 4-5 & Conclusion

An opportunity for Lenten study and reflection:  "The Cross and The Lynching Tree"  by James Cone will be available for purchase through the church. James Cone is an African-American theologian who has written several books. 
Two discussion sessions are scheduled to share thoughts, feelings, and reactions to reading Cone's book. While this is an intense book, it is a very appropriate study for a Lenten reflection, making very real the story of Jesus' crucifixion and the reality of those stories of lynching in this country.

Prayer Vigil, Holy Saturday, April 15
The Prayer Vigil has been a tradition at St. Stephen’s for many years. Once again, the sanctuary will be open for prayer and contemplation from noon until 9:00pm on Holy Saturday. People throughout the world will be joining our offerings of prayer and reflection during this time. You may choose to pray alone or invite others to join you in the quiet of the sanctuary. As always, there will be resources for your use if you desire. You will be given a key for the Pheasant Hill door if you sign up for 2:00pm or beyond. Barb Kepler will be handing out keys at both the Maundy Thursday and Good Friday services. There is a sign-up sheet in the narthex. May God richly bless you as you internalize the meaning of the Cross.

Yoga: Monday and Wednesday!
Join us for Yoga Mondays at 7:00 pm and Wednesdays at 10:30 am. Suggested donation is $10. Join in stretching, flexing, relaxing, and feeling good.
