God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars.
Martin Luther

This week Redeemer finds herself in the afterglow of the celebration of Easter Sunday! There was an overwhelming abundance of joy! The liturgy and music that framed the worship services intersected to provide such an uplifting experience for the congregation.

As a member of the clergy, I think every Sunday I have ‘the best seat in the house, sitting on the altar. From that vantage point I can see and hear the breadth of what is occurring in the sanctuary. This past Sunday was particularly moving as I could appreciate in detail the flowers that the Flower Guild had so beautifully arranged at the pulpit, lectern and on the altar. They were breathtaking! The Chapel was equally stunning. So I offer deep appreciation to Steve Sutor, Head of the Flower Guild and to the individuals whose gifts were utilized to create such floral offerings. And thank you to David Crandall whose photographs below will allow us to truly enjoy in our leisure the arrangements.

Remember: Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature. ~Gerard de Nerval
