FMLY - Self-Blessing, 1-5-21
Dear Ones,

As I’ve mentioned in previous videos, I am amazed at our ability to be resourceful during this pandemic. Some of our resourcefulness are unconscious reactions of pure survival, and others are thoughtfully planned. In today’s installment of “From My Living Room to Yours,” I share a process to bless your house in honor of the Feast of Epiphany, which we’ll observe this coming Sunday. Stop by the church this Saturday and pick-up your house blessing kit or collect your own supplies. You’ll find more information below.

Speaking of stopping by the church, please remember that I am available for phone/FaceTime/Zoom prayers. If you’d like to schedule a 15-20 minute chat, just send me an email. In the meantime, know that each and every one of you are in my daily prayers

In Christ’s love,
ANNOUNCEMENTS & EVENTS
Epiphany House Blessing Kits
Saturday, January 9, 9:30-10:30 am
Stop by the church parking lot to say hello to Mother Brenda and receive a House Blessing kit. If you aren’t able to make it during those hours, you can create your own kit with a piece of chalk and these instructions.
Save the Date/Buy the Book
Wednesdays, 7-8 pm, starting January 13
During Epiphany, our “Deep Dive Book Group will be reading Awareness: The Perils and Opportunities of Reality by Anthony De Mello. Mark your calendar and join us on January 13th, having read up through the “Self-Observation” chapter.

Ready to Pledge?
Making a pledge to the church's mission is one of the ways we say, "Thank you, God!" for the many blessings we enjoy at St. Andrew's. Plus, your financial commitment will help us better budget for 2021. To date, we are about $114K short of our goal, but about 50 households have yet to join the effort, so if you haven't already done so, you can pledge here. Your Vestry thanks you in advance!

Upcoming Events
All via Zoom
During the current Stay-at-Home orders, there will be no in-person gatherings (including Drive-In and Outdoor Church), so our schedule will be as follows:
