REPURPOSING HOLIDAY WREATHS
Did you ever wonder what happened to the holiday wreaths that used to go up on the telephone poles along Main Street in Darlington? Well, after years of wear and tear, they got pretty shabby. But they have found a new purpose as lighted peace signs. All the fake foliage has been removed and the steel rims refurbished and custom outfitted with LED rope lighting to form electric symbols of peace. Each sign is 33 inches in diameter
and is meant to be used outdoors. A sample will be available for viewing at the library book sale on Saturday, March 10. Proceeds from this fundraiser will be donated to the Darlington Friends of the Library. If you are interested in purchasing one of these unique signs, stop by and place an order.

Lenten Series at Deer Creek Harmony Presbyterian Church
Route 161 at Harmony Church RD
A RETREAT WITH BLACK ELK: Living in the Sacred Hoop – a different kind of Lenten study. Nicholas Black Elk (1863-1950), was a visionary, Lakota holy man, and convert to Christianity. Throughout his adult life, he struggled to reconcile the faith of his people with his newfound faith in Jesus Christ. In so doing, he found solutions to many of the same faith-questions that confront people today as they try to discover underlying
unity in the diverse streams of their lives. Freedom from bondage, serving others, the relatedness of all things, facing into the beyond – these are some of the great themes with which he wrestled. This Lent we will walk beside him towards Holy Week and Easter. We will use a volume of the popular “Retreat with” series as our guide, but mainly, we will learn from one another, sharing our own faith journeys and our questions along the way. For more information, see Pastor Barbara, or call 410-734-6087.
