Immanuel Lutheran Guild learns about Easter


The Immanuel Lutheran Guild conducted a regular meeting April 3 in the fellowship hall of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Seymour.

President Linda Eggersman opened the meeting.

The Rev. Ralph Blomenberg spoke about the history and transition of Easter. The topics included what is Easter about, where the name “Easter” came from, how the day is picked, symbolism and other countries’ traditions.

The tables were decorated with yellow placemats, Easter napkins and Easter candy. Pistachio and lemon desserts were served.

The door prize, a pink begonia, was given to Ruth Newkirk. The group closed in singing Hymn 887, “Now the Light Has Gone Away.”

Marie Harmon read a devotion titled “Now What?”

Hostesses for the evening were chairwoman Connie Roeder, Ester Becker and Betty Chastain.

The next meeting is the spring party at 6:30 p.m. May 1. Each member is asked to bring a dessert or a salad.
