Remember to Set Your Clocks Ahead

On Sunday, March 10, at 2:00 a.m. we will set our clocks forward as daylight saving; daylight savings; or “summertime” begins. What you call it depends on where you live, but either way it’s the practice of setting our clocks one hour ahead during the spring and back again one hour in the fall to give more natural, sunlight to our day. 

The idea was proposed by George Hudson, an entomologist, who probably needed more daylight to study insects and probably wasn’t a parent at the time. I wonder if he regretted his proposal after he had children? All jokes and grumbling aside about the lack of sleep we are about to receive, let’s be thankful and look forward to more light and more time outdoors after the long winter we just had.  


Please remember to set your clocks ahead one hour before you go to bed Saturday night. We would be sad to miss you all at Church on Sunday!
