...To know Christ and to make Him known
Mark 6:30-34 & 53-56
What Do You See?


“Vision is the art of seeing things that are invisible,” said Jonathan Swift.  Perhaps that is what the disciples failed to have in the Gospel this Sunday, the disciples wanted to "Send the crowds away."  The crowd had ruined their desired rest and need for solitude.  Jesus on the other hand looked on the situation to the new possibilities.  The crowds were hungry, the disciples wanted to send them away.  The disciples saw only one possibility.  Look for food in the village, they believed they could not feed the crowds.  Jesus saw not a crowd but a flock.  A flock without a shepherd.  It was Jesus' vision of what might be that made the difference.  Jesus is that way, he sees what is there and sees the possibilities others fail to see.  Jesus did not despair and say like the disciples, how will we feed the multitude of people, his faith made it possible for the miracle that occurred to happen. 

It is vision that will make our Grace Episcopal Church become the sacred place God is calling us to be.  Thank you to all who are making it possible! 


Peace,

 ****Buildings and Grounds Funds Campaign****
  
Grace is situated at a moment in its history when God is calling us once again to a renewed greatness. True greatness, however, comes in serving and that is what Grace has done in its past and now proposes to do in a new way in the future. Grace’s grounds are beautiful; our buildings have a unique historical architectural quality, we have an abundance of land and a large parking lot, but they need upkeep if we are to attract people who will share in serving with a dynamic church that is growing rather than looking like it's at its last legs. To that end, we need to raise $50,000 to do this care and conservation; the good news is there is a lot of excitement and we are at about $30,000 or just above half the way there.  
Please prayerfully consider making a donation or pledge to the beautification of our landscaping and parking lot repairs. 
If you have already given towards this campaign,
Thank You!

Together we can accomplish anything!  
 
In addition to the landscaping project, we are brainstorming ideas on a Labyrinth meditation garden and collecting some names and advice for professional designers/landscapers that might help us out. We have visions of transforming our current landscape of mulch to a welcoming landscape that will invite folks into our church, our churchyards and the Labyrinth. We are also thinking of low watering and maintenance requirements that we hope can be achieved with the help of creative designers. We hope to hold a brainstorming and ideation session toward the end of June. If you are interested in this project, please contact Susan Newlin and/or Janet Marseilles
