St. David’s Jam Sessions
We are starting the St. David’s Jam sessions! Bring your guitar, some drums, your voice...maybe your kazoo. Why not bring a friend and introduce them to St. David’s? Come and prepare to make music and community. Starting Thursday, April 5, 2018, we’ll meet every other week in the youth room. Our start time is 6:30 PM. All skill levels are welcome. Please contact Di Marshall, Cliff Crockford, or Guy Drake if you’d like to come. We’ll prepare materials for you. Welcome.
Next First Friday, April 6th at Noon
Would you like some good crack? (That’s Irish for ‘Fun, amusement, entertaining company or conversation’) Learn about crack and other fascinating yet useless facts about Ireland at First Friday on April 6, where Ken Ferguson will share stories and less than 1,000 photographs from a recent trip to the Emerald Isles. Not only that, but you get to partake of our wonderful potluck in the Undercroft starting at Noon. What an opportunity for enjoyment!
Coins for Kenya
Please join us again this year for our Coins for Kenya endeavor. Last year we helped raise nearly $200 with coins donated from our coin jars, wallets, pockets, dresser tops, etc. This time our goal is to raise $300 which will cover the cost of one year of school for a non-boarding student in Kenya. Look for the specially designated bags in the Narthex and Undercroft. We pray our goal will be met by April 7 for the Mama Ada Kenya dinner. Please bring them to the dinner or place in offering plate on April 8th or anytime before. Asante sana!

Volunteers are needed, please contact Sharon Engel at 763-383-0575.
St. David’s Real Women Get Away

Mark your calendars and plan to welcome MN Adult and Teen Challenge on Sunday, April 15 at the 9:30 service
For over 30 years, Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge has been restoring hope to people struggling with drug, alcohol and other life-controlling addictions by addressing their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. One of their most powerful ways they have of reaching out to the community is the offering of testimonies and music at local congregations. On April 15, clients from Teen Challenge will be with us to provide music and will speak during our 9:30 service and, following the 9:30 liturgy, at our adult forum. The Revs. Dave Langille and Cindy Hillger from St. Martin’s by the Lake, Minnetonka Beach, speak passionately about the impact this presentation and witness has had at their local, Episcopal congregation. Please plan to attend to learn more, to support this important ministry, and to be inspired. Please note the guidance offered by Teen Challenge: “The stories our clients share are real accounts of their lives while addicted and how God helped them overcome. We do not think these stories are inappropriate, but we want to respect all parents’ right to tell their children about drugs and alcohol when they are ready.” Finally, out of respect for our guests, we will be offering grape juice instead of wine for communion at the 9:30 service.
A visit with author Anna Redsand
Join Us for Story-telling, Hymn singing and Conversation

Author Anna Redsand will be reading from her spiritual memoir To Drink from the Silver Cup: From Faith Through Exile and Beyond. This soulful story of a lesbian raised in the Christian Reformed Church by missionary parents in the Navajo reservation describes her courageous journey in search of a faith community.
Wonderful descriptions of life in the reservation and her love of family and community are juxtaposed with the realization that her sexual orientation will exclude her from these relationships.
“From Navajo dwellings in New Mexico to Scandinavia to the evangelical Midwest, Anna Redsand's beautiful, heroic story is for anyone who has ever felt outcast from a community they love, and tossed into the desert of doubt and despair. Here you will find spiritual hope embodied, and the promise that, no matter where we are lost, it is possible to find our way home to new communities of faith, compassion, healing and belonging.” – John T. Price, author, Daddy Long Legs: The Natural Education of a Father
