Blessed Holy Week
O God, by the passion of your blessed Son you made an instrument of shameful death to be for us the means of life: Grant us so to glory in the cross of Christ, that we may gladly suffer shame and loss for the sake of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
We are now walking the way of the cross to the tomb on our way to recalling again the Paschal mystery. We walk this path together. Though in our many congregations, we are united through our liturgies in the worship of our one Lord Jesus Christ.  
To more fully share that united experience, please share with us photos as you are able. Some photos from Palm Sunday are found below in this issue of From the Field. Photos must be in by 9 a.m. Tuesday in Easter week to be included in next week's From the Field. Send pictures to [email protected] or send the web address of your online photo album to that email address.

Episcopal Campus Ministry at Relay for Life

Episcopal Campus Ministry at Georgia Southern (ECM) was among more than two dozen groups participating in their Bulloch County Relay for Life. ECM was in the top three groups in fundraising. Campus Missioner Michael Wood-Miles said, "With a lot of help from our supporters and Trinity Statesboro members, we exceeded $4,000 to kick Cancer. This proves once again the the Spirit moves in big ways when we work together, giving our best efforts to help each other and those in any need."
