Pastoral News

I am saddened to tell you that Ed Ortiz's son, David, passed away unexpectedly Monday morning in his home. He was not feeling well and stayed home to rest. His daughters, 12 and 13, found him unresponsive on the couch. David turned 58 years old on July 13. They live near Washington DC. Ed does not have plans to travel there at this time.
I ask that you keep the Ortiz's in your prayers for the comfort of the Holy Spirit and in the faith of believing that in Christ, death is not an ending but a changing of life, and that Jesus has prepared a special place for David in his Father's house. May light perpetual shine upon him and may his soul rest in peace.
Prayers for our People

We pray for the sick, injured, and dying; for the troubled, confused, lonely, or despairing; and for everyone who struggles with the tribulations of this life.
We pray for Downs IV, Holden, Heidi and Cynthia.
We pray for healing and recovery for Pearl, Susan, and Tom.
We pray for those going through cancer treatments, especially John, Victoria, Andres and Ginny. We pray for all who are under the care of skilled nursing, especially Bob, Ruth, Timothy, Don and Barbara.
We pray for all who are in hospice care, especially Ward.
We pray that the Holy Spirit comfort those who cannot visit their loved ones, and for those who cannot be visited, and we pray that the wisdom and love of the Holy Spirit descend upon those who care for the sick.

Heavenly Father, keep in your care all who have died trusting in your promises. We remember before you the passing of David Ortiz. May light perpetual shine upon him. Send the Holy Spirit upon the Ortiz family and all who grieve.

Cone of Uncertainty

Reporting on Tropical Storm Isaias, The Tampa Bay Times said that our region has entered the “cone of uncertainty” – the yellow cone that depicts the probable track of any given storm. To most Floridians, the cone of uncertainty means this: It is time to check on supplies for a hurricane, to prepare the exterior of homes and businesses, and to go on with life as normal.

At All Angels, we had a two-month head start on the cone of uncertainty. In June, our maintenance committee made sure all branches were trimmed back from the buildings and that any dead limbs that could turn into projectiles were removed. This morning, on a property walk with Ed and Bob; junior and senior warden; all we had to do was move our flower pots inside and take down the beautiful hanging pots from the trees. 

On the home front, tomorrow I will do a property walk to make sure that all things around the house are ready. I think our cat, Oscar, is making hurricane preparations too. Starting about a month ago, he started bringing in various creatures to the house – salamanders, lizards, and a snake. Much to our displeasure, he has brought in three bunnies during the past week; the second one he brought in (which may have been the same bunny as the first) either had PTSD or had an injured front leg. The boys and I brought it to a wildlife rescue and rehab facility. The bunny that Oscar brought to us on Monday, however, was fully intact. I was thankful it was uninjured because, to be frank, I wouldn’t know what to say to Ed Straight of Wildlife Rehab Center if I brought another injured bunny to him. Each night we are uncertain what Oscar might bring to us. Here is one thing that is certain: Oscar’s freedom to go outside at night is uncertain.

My Florida life has taught me that life goes on during a cone of uncertainty. If tropical storm Isaias changes direction and causes an evacuation of Longboat Key, Sunday’s service certainly will go on – online, of course.

In a spiritual sense, we can find hope and love at the center of our faith; especially in uncertain times. In faith, we hold onto the words of the Apostle Paul, who wrote that nothing can separate us from God’s love. I am certain that if Paul were writing in our day, he would write that nothing can separate us from God’s love – not hurricanes, wildfires or earthquakes, not cancer or surgery, not physical therapy, not pets bringing us gifts, not contentious election cycles, protests, or pandemics – nothing can separate us from God’s love.
