Friends, I want to share 6 quick things with you:

1.  The next time you're on Trinity's campus, go into the Education building, down the hall of the Children's wing, follow the mural almost to the end, near the Atrium and you'll see the most wonderful art work being produced right now, as Jesus and the children - from all over the world - are being drawn and painted; it's just so amazing, and a perfect completion to this remarkable mural.

2.  If you didn't receive a communion cup - made of olive wood from the Holy Land - this past Sunday, there are still a few remaining, and you can pick up one this coming Sunday.

3.  Lenora Rousseau's presentation of the Passover Meal that Jesus shared with his disciples in the Upper Room was so compelling, inspiring and informative, that we've decided to use the unleavened bread or "matzah" - as Jesus did - for our communion at least through the rest of Lent; it seems appropriate and fitting; just wanted you to know ahead of time.

4.  Our first Trinity Tour will take place this Sunday at 11:00 - in front of the worship center.  See all the places of this wonderful campus and learn about their history and beauty.  Invite a friend.

5.  We've set two dates for "Visits at Faith Mission:" Thursday, March 19 and Tuesday, March 31, from 3:00 - 4:30 pm.  Persons will be there to show you the progress, what's yet to be done, the children being tutored by UF Education Majors and more.  It's truly miraculous what's happening there, and we're just in the beginning stages.  Just arrive on one of these dates and someone will be there to show you around.  Go East on 39th Ave and turn south (right) on NE 15th street; you'll see Faith Mission sign soon on your left.

Finally, as we continue our series of "Sharing in His Steps," come with me to the Garden of Gethsemane this Sunday, where the greatest battle in the world was fought - and won! - in the heart of Jesus.  I'll be preaching on this scene found in Matthew 26: 36 - 45; if you can, try to read this passage in preparation for worship.  I'll see you Sunday! And when you arrive this Sunday, look for the painted Labyrinth, prayer walk, and take some time to do as Christians have done for centuries and try this special way of praying, of letting go of things that hinder, and receiving things from God that help.

God bless, Dan
