Linda's latest update . . .
“You’ve been through a huge ordeal,” our favorite Stanford nurse said to Linda as we approached Day 100. “And you’ve done exceedingly well. Congratulations!”

Three key tests measure the success of a bone marrow transplant (BMT), and Linda appears to have passed all 3 with flying colors:

Blood counts: Linda’s level of white blood cells, hemoglobin, and platelets are now
#1: Bone marrow biopsy: Linda’s bone marrow has normal cellular structure with less than 1% immature cells, well within normal range. “There’s no evidence of AML (acute myeloid leukemia), nothing even suspicious!”

#2:Blood counts: Linda’s level of white blood cells, hemoglobin, and platelets are now... Read more by clicking HERE

Rise Against Hunger Event at the Cathedral: Volunteer Opportunity

When disaster strikes, many of us feel the urge to jump in and help however we can. Sadly, in our diocese, we are faced with disasters far too frequently.

Project (Re)Start was created as a way to both respond to and preplan for “the big one”, whatever that may be. This new program gives us an opportunity to use that supercharged energy and desire to help, as well as ensures the ability for the body of Christ to respond to those who are in need.

Unique to our diocese, Project (Re)Start is an initiative in which congregations take on packing a specific type of bin (Cleaning, Kitchen, Bedroom, Bathroom, or Infant) and storing it in reserve until needed. The project is currently in pilot phase at three churches in the diocese: St. Barnabas, Mt. Shasta, St. Michael’s, Carmichael, and Holy Trinity, Ukiah. Read More ...

To Linda and Jim

For Joy in God's Creation

O heavenly Creator, who has filled the world with beauty;
Open our eyes to behold your gracious hand in all your works;
that, rejoicing in your whole creation, we may learn to serve you with gladness;
for the sake of him through whom all things were made,
your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Closing smiles... Brought to you today by Traffic Engineers!
KJS: I like the word “shalom.” I use it in my correspondence, I use it in my sermons, and that’s how I sign my e-mails — “shalom.” To me it is a concrete reminder of what it is we’re all supposed to be about.

Interviewer: Because it means peace in Hebrew?

KJS: It means far more than peace. I think it’s a vision of the human community. Those great visions of Isaiah — every person fed, no more strife, the ill are healed, prisoners are released.
