Instead of having regular worship today, we went on an outdoor prayer walk, respecting social distancing. It could not have been a nicer day, and we had a great turnout. This will be our new Sunday normal at St Peter's in Bennington for a little while.

We'll do it again next Sunday, March 29 - join us! - - Canceled until restrictions on activities are lifted
