Dear Friends,

"It is finished." Jesus' last words on the cross in the Gospel of John. What does it all mean? What did his death mean then, what does his state sanctioned execution mean for us now? Last night, we gathered to reflect on this phrase and six other phrases. With words, visual images and meditative music, we came together to remember his death. But we make no assertions of what it all means--or where it all ends. Today, on this Holy Saturday, we embrace the ancient tradition of Good Friday, that today, God is dead. For yesterday, today, and into this evening we will imagine what it means for us to be in this world without God.
 
Tonight, at the first service of Easter at the 8:00 pm Vigil, we will strike a new flame in the dark church and walk into the reality of a God who died on the cross but who rises from the tomb. Tonight and Easter Sunday and beyond, we will as a community, do our very best to live our lives digesting and perhaps even embracing a God who cannot and will not be limited by death.
 
Christ has died. Christ has risen. Is your life any different as a result? Tonight and Sunday morning with words and music, we will, once again accept God's invitation to move beyond destruction, death and despair. Good Friday has happened. Holy Saturday is here. Easter Sunday has every possibility of coming. What is your prayer for yourself and our world?
 
Looking forward to seeing all of you. Come early, bring bells, and hey, why not wear a bonnet?
 
All the best,
Bonnie
 
CALLING ALL BAKERS! Next week we will begin the neighborhood portion of our 1883 Project. By way of inviting participation from the local community, Ashley and Rob Craig have offered us the use of their beautiful front lawn during the Ravenswood Run. They'll have a bake sale (not an auction just a normal bake sale) and plenty of information about The 1883 Project so that people outside our immediate community can join us in "Keeping our Old Bell ringing and our building standing."
 
We need baked items of all sorts to sell to hungry runners on Sunday Morning (delivery please on Friday April 25th or Saturday, April 26th to the Church). Contact me or Ashley Craig for more information.
 
Our current 1883 Project total of pledges is more than $1,200,000.  We are now only $165,000 from our stretch goal.  Let's get the word out about our needs and our ministry to all in the neighborhood.   
 
Do remember, next Sunday is the Ravenswood Run, so we'll only have an 11:00 Worship service.

The Ravenswood Run, a great way to kick off the running season AND support RCS' Food Pantry and Community Kitchen, will be held on Sunday, April 27th. This neighborhood 5k benefits both RCS and the student health centers at Lakeview and Amundsen High Schools.

Please join us! Click here to register.

And there's more! There will be pancakes. Andy Kalish, owner/operator of the Ravenswood Event Center and good friend to RCS, will again provide a pancake breakfast for $10, 100% of which will benefit RCS' hunger relief programs. Pancakes must be purchased ahead of time on the race registration page (link above) whether or not you are running. Yum!

You can help feed others by eating some post-Ravenswood Run pancakes! 100% of your $10 donation to the post-race pancake breakfast will go to secure food for our hungry neighbors: $10 can buy 100 pounds of food for the RCS Food Pantry. Your donation means that others will eat, too.

You don't have to be running the Ravenswood Run 5K in order to indulge in some pancakes! Pancake breakfast purchases are available to runners and non-runners alike. Pancakes and tables will be located near the finish line on race day.

Many thanks to RCS friend and supporter Andy Kalish and his crew at the Ravenswood Event Center for underwriting the pancake breakfast!

Cost is $25 in advance, $35 at the door, and free child-care will be provided. Click here to get your tickets and for lots more information!

Consider automatic bill pay through your bank instead!

Did you know that if you pay your operating and/or capital campaign pledge via PayPal that 2-3% of the money you are donating gets paid out in fees to PayPal? It doesn't seem like much, but it can really add up. 

You can make sure all of your pledge goes to All Saints' by authorizing your bank to make these same regular payments with no fees involved! This is easily done online and we've got a guide to help show you how. Click here to get started.
