Nineteenth Sunday After Pentecost
September 25, 2016


"We invite everyone to share communion around God's altar. 

We strive to be a welcoming and relevant Christian community doing what matters through prayer, worship, teaching, outreach, fellowship, and service.  
We will demonstrate the real life application of scripture, tradition, and
reason by providing a safe place to respond to each other's needs,   
hurts, joys, and interests."

Morris Braswell  is recovering from gastro-cancer surgery at NE GA Med Center #5704.

During the 9:30 Christian Education hour this Sunday, the Compassion Team will be distributing a preparation guide for putting your affairs in order.

Christians recognize the inevitability of death, but affirm that "neither death, nor life, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."  Romans 8:38-39

Yet trust in the love and power of God does not eliminate the grief that accompanies a loved one's death. Recognizing that it is often difficult to plan wisely under emotional stress, the Compassion Team has prepared this personal and confidential planner to assist you in making advance arrangements.

This planning guide, approved by the Vestry, is offered with a prayer and the hope that it will serve as a helpful resource for your loved ones in time of need.

Foundations of America's Democracy, 
or Framing the Founding Fathers
Sunday, September 25, 4:00 p.m. at The Episcopal Church of Resurrection,  
1755 Duncan Bridge Road, Sautee-Nacoochee
Presenter is Mary Matthews, Ph.D. in Political Science. Mary is currently an international environmental policy consultant and has taught Introduction to American Government 15 times, winning multiple teaching awards.  In her words:

"Citizens of the United States have enjoyed a democracy based on the ideals of equality, rights, and consent of the governed for over 200 years. The application of this approach to governance has evolved over time, and is something we often take for granted. When the United States gained independence from England, the idea of a democracy was experimental at best, and far more revolutionary than many realize today. America's Founding Fathers were challenged to design institutions that would accommodate their budding independence, and sooth conflicts of interests. Their early efforts were as politically charged as any challenges we have faced as a nation since this time. We will explore the historical, economic, and social factors that shaped the formation of the American democracy, and discuss how the Founding Fathers compromised to form a more perfect union."
Attention Ladies

Mary Demmer join us for a couple of sessions on Saturday.  Sign up in the narthex now by the big pink poster or at the usual sign-up table.

We look forward to seeing you there!  Linda Perry

Our theme this week is apples.  We did an apple experiment today.
  The children guessed what would happen if we put a slice of apple in lemon juice, vinegar, water and vegetable oil.  We also made predictions on how many seeds are inside an apple.
