Del Ray Yoga will meet tomorrow night from 6 to 6:50 pm in Lundsford Hall at the Del Ray United Methodist Church. Our class is growing. A few of you travel so we understand when you are unable to make it. Just remember you can “show” anytime. We have a spiritual vibe that thinks about you and prays for you, even if you are not present. Each of us is on a journey to become more whole, and so in body mind and spirit, we unite as we develop our “yoga practice.”
I do look forward to seeing each if you on Tuesday evenings. This week bring with you a “share” story about how yoga is changing your life.
Until tomorrow evening then…..
We will begin our new study on Thursday, April 14th to May 19th (six weeks) at 7:30 pm in the “Parlor-Room 207 at the Del Ray UMC. Our study is the book of John – The Study of Light and Life. In John’s gospel, Jesus calls people to believe in him and to abide in him. Both following and believing in Jesus are important dimensions of Christian discipleship. Join us for the study of John, and as you read John, approach the text actively, thrusting yourself into its pages and ponder how the words speak to the meaning of Jesus for your life.
All are Welcome!!!
Please feel free to contact me if you have an interest in attending.

Maudy Thursday is a special service that includes the celebration of foot washing, the act of humble physical caring for another, a practice that Jesus introduced to his disciples. It is then followed by an invitation to all who love Him, who earnestly repent of their sin and seek to live in peace with one another, to join together in receiving the sacrament of Holy Communion.
WE invite you to join us for this years Holy Maudy Thursday at Del Ray UMC.
