Transfiguration Sunday

Hey Everyone!

I hope you’re all well and in good spirits. There are several different gatherings taking place this week and several regular gatherings cancelled, so please read over our weekly activities carefully.

This Sunday is Transfiguration Sunday, during which we will explore the Gospel of Mark’s account of this extraordinary story in Jesus earthly work. If you’d like to read the preaching text, you can find it here, along with the other lectionary texts. This Sunday is also St. Valentine’s Day. Look for the tiny blurb on this saint of the early church in the order of worship this week (scroll down for the Order of Worship link).

And, here are the rest of your weekly announcements:

Games Up Here

Dubbed the “Best Buttermilk Pancakes Ever!” (by some children’s book we have), this family favorite recipe has served us well for many Shrove Tuesdays over the years. This week, we’re inviting you to use it (or your own recipe if you desire) as we gather on Tuesday for our first (and hopefully last) virtual Pancake Tuesday Extravaganza!

Best Buttermilk Pancakes Ever!
1 medium egg
1 1/4 cups of buttermilk*
2 tablespoons of oil
1 1/4 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of honey (optional, other sweeteners can be substituted).

In a medium bowl, using a fork, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a small bowl, beat the egg into the buttermilk, oil, and honey.

Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Stir gently until just blended. The batter will be lumpy.

Heat a pan and cook in oil, butter, or bacon fat.

*If you don’t have buttermilk, combine 1 tbsp of white vinegar or lemon juice with enough milk to make 1 cup. Let it sit for five minutes and voila! Buttermilk pancakes, here we come.
