Dear  Convergence Family,

I wanted to remind you that this Sunday marks the ‘leap forward’ for your clocks by one hour!  That’s right! Daylight savings time is here which means one hour of less sleep but more daylight.

This Sunday, we’ll also be taking a break from Philippians and exploring Jesus’ time in the wilderness.  This is such a rich passage that will help us further engage in this season of Lent.

This Sunday is also ‘Freedom Sunday’ so there’s going to be a screening of the rockumentary ‘Call and Response’ in the evening.  There’ll be another announcement for this coming out later today and more information on Sunday at service as well.

I’m looking forward to our Sunday together!!!

Grace and Peace,

Bobby
