From the Rector: Opportunities of togetherness
Last Sunday, it was hard to leave church. An old friend of St. Paul's showed up and hung out with us in the sunshine out front. Children added their voices to our worship reminding us who we are. The music wrapped our hearts in divine love. The pews began to fill back up. It was just SO good. I left thinking about how deeply our togetherness feeds us. I left remembering that Jesus is so much more evidently among us in this joyful togetherness that we get at church.
And so, this week I invite you to a few opportunities of togetherness.
- I invite you to join me in support and prayer for Dan Fields, Bill Larkin, Elizabeth Spark, and other members of our community who are walking a 5K in support of freeing incarcerated girls and women (more info below). May they know themselves to be accompanied by our love, generosity, and gratitude every step of the way.
- I invite you to come to church this week at 10am (8am and 10am starting next week). Masks are now optional and the atmosphere is as affirming and energizing as ever; even more so when YOU walk into the room!
- I invite you to join together to spruce up the property on which we gather to minister, be fed, and be sent out. The grounds have gotten a bit rough around the edges during this Covid-tide of not having a staff custodian, and some tending is due. This is also a great opportunity to simply hang out with one another in a gratifying act of service and community. Details and sign-up below!
- We have the honor of baptizing a few babies on All Saints Sunday this year! If you or anyone you know would like to talk with me about baptism, or are interested in gathering with other families with babies and young children to learn more baptism, please do reach out to me, or simply fill out this form. What a joy it is to welcome people into the body of Christ in this place!
Yours in Christ,
