Sunday, March 9, at Pender



March 9.  Give up Something BAD for Lent. Matthew 5:29-30, 16:26
We give up all kinds of things for Lent.  Chocolate, soda, but that misses what Lent and the cross are all about.  Let’s see what we can really give up.

Listen to past sermons in the Pender Podcast.

Don’t Forget to Change Your Clocks Tonight!

2014 Day Light Savings

Daylight Savings time begins again!

On Sunday, March 9, 2014 at 2:00:00 AM (or earlier!) clocks are turned forward 1 hour to become Sunday, March 9, 2014 at 3:00:00 AM

Daylight Savings TIme is not just a way to annoy us when we want to sleep in on Sundays.  The modern idea of daylight saving was first proposed in 1895 by George Vernon Hudson and it was first implemented during the First World War.

Although most of the United States used DST throughout the 1950s and 1960s, DST use expanded following the 1970s energy crisis and has generally remained in use in North America and Europe since that time.

Everybody sing along…
