Nov. 12 - Advent:   BECOMING BELOVED COMMUNITY
“Becoming Beloved Community represents not so much a set of programs as a journey, a set of interrelated commitments around which Episcopalians may organize our many efforts to respond to racial injustice and grow a community of reconcilers, justice-makers, and healers.” This is difficult work. But we can do it. It’s about listening and sharing. It is about God. Please join us to begin this vital conversation. Hard copies of a summary will be available in the narthex and the parish office. You may access resources at https://www.episcopalchurch.org/resources-racial-reconcilation-and-justice.

YOUNG WOMENS’ BIBLE STUDY
A 10-SESSION STUDY BY BETH MOORE

Beginning at 5:30 pm Monday evenings in the Kelso Library
Sign-up Contact: Danielle Alvarado at dalvarado@trinitygalv.org

The Old Testament story of Esther is a profile in courage and contains many modern parallels for today’s overloaded and stressed woman.

Esther, while a queen, lived as an outsider in a hostile environment. Women will learn strong lessons of faith, providence, and hope to equip them to live courageously “for such a time as this.”

ASSOCIATES CORNER - The Reverend Ed Thompson

Adult Sunday School – from the Education Team

Beginning Sunday, November 12 and throughout the Season of Advent our study will be  BECOMING BELOVED COMMUNITY . What is Becoming Beloved Community?

"The 78th General Convention of our Church did a remarkable thing: the General Convention invited us as a church to take up this Jesus Movement. We made a commitment to live into being the Jesus Movement by committing to evangelism and the work of reconciliation — beginning with racial reconciliation … across the borders and boundaries that divide the human family of God. This is difficult work. But we can do it. It’s about listening and sharing. It’s about God.” The Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry
And here’s how the team that put it together describes it:
“Becoming Beloved Community represents not so much a set of programs as a journey, a set of interrelated commitments around which Episcopalians may organize our many efforts to respond to racial injustice and grow a community of reconcilers, justice-makers, and healers.”
Please join us to begin this vital conversation, first among ourselves and perhaps later offer it to our Galveston community. Hard copies of a summary will be available in the narthex at church and in the parish office. You may access all of the resources at  https://www.episcopalchurch.org/resources-racial-reconciliation-and-justice  .

Looking forward to heartfelt, robust conversations that will lead to action.

Blessings.

Father Ed
