  • We continue celebrating the Easter Season, full of joy and gratitude for the gift of salvation we have received in Christ Jesus.

    This past Sunday in our church we focused on the gospel of St. John 10:11-18. Jesus said, “I am the Good Shepherd.” I remember learning that the image of Jesus as Shepherd was the one first used in the early church. The faithful of the pristine church understood from lived experience the horror of the Roman death sentence.

  • Moving houseplants outside in late spring or early summer is good for them because they get better air circulation and light exposure. This also is a good time to repot your container-bound plants.

    Wait to move plants outdoors until at least mid- to late-May, or when the weather is consistently warm.  Since most houseplants have a tropical origin, temperatures below 40 to 45 degrees Fahrenheit might damage them.
