Spring brings forth hope in the face of the trials in our lives. In celebration of God’s creation and Earth Day this past week, the prelude features images of spring flowers I photographed. I pray that Sandy’s music with these images helps lift your spirits and sets the mood for a meaningful worship experience while we are all sheltering at home. Peace to all, Daren
