Dennysville-Edmunds Congregational Church

There were about 125 happy diners at the Parish Hall last Saturday night for the annual boiled dinner.  Many people were “wearin’ the green” and some were especially celebratory in the clothing and hair dressing.  A fine time was had by all.  Not a speck of meat - corned beef or ham - remained, but all had gotten their fill.  Sweetest cabbage ever!

The Lenten Bible Study continues on Fridays, as those gathered consider how the Bible clarifies various temptations that are referred to in C. S. Lewis’ “The Screwtape Letters.”  The instruction that the senior devil (Screwtape) is giving, via letters, to his nephew, a still-learning, junior devil are amusing, until one realizes that they are only what we all face from time to time and will certainly have to be prepared to resist, when each seemingly innocent temptation comes.  The meetings are at 1:30 on Friday, March 23rd & and at 10 a.m. on Friday, March 29th in the Parish Hall; the Perry and Dennysville groups having combined.

On Friday, March 30th, (the reason for the earlier time for Bible Study) there will be a Good Friday service at Christ Church Episcopal in Eastport at 1 p.m., sponsored by the Greater Eastport Ecumenical Churches Association (GEECA).  The focus of the service will be a dramatic reading of Christ’s Passion from the Bible.  (Can’t recall which gospel it is this year.) Volunteer readers will gather at 12:30 for a run-through.  This is a service that will set the spiritual background for the glory of Easter and help in preparing to better understand and receive the amazing Good News of Sunday morning.
