Dear friends,

The fifth Sunday of Easter, in the Latvian Church calendar is called Jubilate—Rejoice!  So, it is with gladness that we send this video worship service—in English this time. 

Our Scripture reader this week is Aleks Zommers (who just turned 11).  His father, Pauls Zommers  shoots and edits our videos, and his uncle Andrejs Zommers places them on the internet—a joyous Paldies!  Paldies!  Paldies!  to team Zommers!  And—an additional PALDIES to Dr. Andris Āboliņš, for his inspired improvisations on hymn tunes, as well as for the flowers that he brought to grace our altar. Then—a happy thank-you to Ēriks Raisters, who sends our videos to your e-mail box—and to you, dear friends, who watch them :-)! 

We ask for your patience while we figure out how to balance our video and in person services.  This month, in addition to this week’s video, you will be getting two more from the Latvian Church Worldwide—on Mother’s Day (May 9th), from Canada and from the Midwestern district on Pentecost (May 23rd).  After that, hopefully, we will be able to set up a regular schedule that we all can rely on.

In the latest news from the Church synod that took place last week—we have a new leadership team, pictured below, starting with top left:  Sandra Kalve (Milwaukee), Kārlis Veilands (San Francisco), Māc. Igors Safins (Boston),  Māc. Aija Graham (Kalamazoo), Andris Celcherts (Cleveland), Ingrīda Jansons (New York), Māc. Ģirts Grietiņš (Toronto), Vija Ūdenāns (Washington D.C), Archbishop Lauma Zušēvica, and, last but certainly not least,  Prāv. Anita Vārsbergs Pāža—the new president of LELBA. 

HAPPY SUNDAY!  THIS IS THE DAY THAT THE LORD HAS MADE—LET US REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT!

Blessings—prāv. Daira
