Good People 

 This Sunday there are some exciting things happening at St. Paul’s! We return to our three-service schedule AND we will unroll the newly rebooted 5:30 service! I am sorry not to be with you all for these exciting happenings, but I have complete confidence that Chris, Beth and Ellen will be there to make it all happen to perfection.

 I am most excited about the 5:30 Celtic-influenced, come-as-you-are, intergenerational, casual service. I have observed that the Sunday evening service was beginning to draw more people to it from a wider cross-section of our members. It's true that families come upstairs after afternoon Church School and SPY classes, but even more people who have had busy weekends, have been out of town, or who wanted to sleep in on Sundays have found this a convenient time to worship. We changed the time of the service from 5:15 to 5:30 because there seemed to be a need for a bit more transition time after the classes, and it is also a more natural time for those who have been out and about all weekend. 

 Ellen Oak, our Interim Music Minister, brought the service written by John Phillip Newall to us (Chris, Beth and I) and we borrowed heavily from it. It is definitely more casual than the morning services and has a strong “Creation” influence. The Episcopal Church tries to use the fall as “the creation season” in our worship, so it felt like a good fit for us. Fall is, perhaps, my favorite time of year with the changing colors and chillier weather, so honoring God for the imagination and diversity of creation at this time of year seems particularly appropriate.   Gale+

Financial Planning Speaker Series

This series, moderated by Karen Van Voorhis, will take place during coffee hour over three Sundays. This is part of St. Paul's ongoing educational efforts in the area of wellness for its parishioners, and an attempt to answer some of the many specific follow-up questions received after the four-part financial wellness series offered last spring. Topics and guest speakers will include: • January 28: Estate Planning: Essential Documents and Preserving Assets, with Natick resident Tricia D'Agostino (http://www.margolis.com/patricia-c-dagostino) • February 4: Senior Housing and Health Care: What's What? (Navigating Options and Costs), with Joan Harris (https://www.symphonycaremanagement.com/) The presenters are all seasoned experts in their fields, and we are lucky that they have generously volunteered their time for our benefit. Please grab a coffee and a snack at coffee hour on these three Sundays and join us for an invaluable education on these topics. See Karen Van Voorhis if you have any questions.
