TRASH TO TREASURE
 
October 2, 2021, the parish will host a multigenerational “75th Anniversary Block Party,” 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. outside in the garden courtyard. Horizons Arts Ministry will set a Trash to Treasure table and is asking parishioners to donate three or four tchotchkes, otherwise known as “dust collectors.” 
 
Donated items must be smaller than a shoe box. Please do not bring items until   that day. Each item, or bundle, will sell for $2.00; the unsold will be given to charity the following week or reclaimed by the owner that day. The sale dollars collected will benefit our rector’s discretionary fund.

Still Curious?
THE 75th ANNIVERSARY BLOCK PARTY
 
The party’s held on October 2,
Crazy and interesting things to do.
If you’re fond of children’s play,
On a bright and sunny day,
Greeting folk you’ve missed so much,
Sharing a hug, that long-lost touch.
Welcoming neighbors to join our fun,
Watching games, both lost and won.
There’ll be many activities,
With music and prizes meant to please.
A bouncy house to capture the day,
Energy there, much wobble and sway.
Having an ice cream, cold and sweet
Perhaps another tempting treat.
Salubrious beverages, all on ice,
Others offered, for a price.
Selling those dusty things you bought
Not wanted now, on second thought.
The parish family will be gathered here,
Into our second pandemic year,
So outside we’ll be from eleven to three
All are welcome. Come and see!
The Pastoral Care Team asks you to include in your daily prayers the names on this list:
NEW DATE!!!
Sacred Ground
A Film-Based Dialogue Series on Race & Faith
6-9 PM in Spencer Hall
Starting October 7th

Sacred Ground is a film-and readings-based dialogue series on race, grounded in faith. Small groups are invited to talk through chapters of America’s history of race and racism, while weaving in threads of family story, economic class, and political and regional identity.

The 10-part series is built around a powerful online curriculum of documentary films and readings that focus on Indigenous, Black, Latino, and Asian/Pacific American histories as they intersect with European American histories.

Sacred Ground is part of Becoming Beloved Community, the Episcopal Church’s long-term commitment to racial healing, reconciliation, and justice in our personal lives, our ministries, and our society. This series is open to all, and especially designed to help white people talk with other white people. Participants are invited to peel away the layers that have contribute to the challenges and divides of the present day—all while grounded in our call to faith, hope, and love.
