Sebastopol NewsBy LINDA L. CORLEY,
What will you do with Jesus
This is Holy Week, culminating with Easter on Sunday. The Lt. Governor has asked that beginning on Monday, April 6, at 6 p.m. that all churches and individuals with bells ring them for one minute in support of all our medical personnel. They are to be rung through April 20 when the quarantine will be lifted. On Sunday (Easter) everyone is asked to go outside and lift up their hands in prayer at sunrise.
Sympathy is extended to the family of Paul Comans. Paul will be greatly missed in this community.
Although not from Sebastopol, sympathy is extended to the family of Ovid Vickers, long time English teacher at East Central Community College (or for those my age or older East Central Junior College).

Ladies the mid-week Bible study on the book of Philippians at Steam Mill Church is cancelled until further notice.
Since most church services are now cancelled, tune in to any number of online services. I have enjoyed so many from many different denominations. No excuse for no church service.
Thought to ponder: Pilate asked the people (Mark 15:12) “Then what shall I do with the man you call the King of the Jews?” The question today is “What will you do with Jesus?”
Stay at home people. The life you save may be that of the one you love dearly. If everyone does what is being asked, we can soon return to some sense of normalcy.
