The service will be recorded and uploaded at around 11 am for those (especially on the West Coast) who prefer to watch on YouTube at their leisure. 
Kyrie Eleison

On Pentecost Sunday, instead of the Venite, we are hearing a taize recording of the Kyrie Eleision (Lord, have mercy). 

You may listen to it before Sunday here:
Kyrie Elesion (de Taize) Ubi Caritas

This ancient prayer is a litany, sung in different languages,
asking for prayers as follows:

For victims of war and violence
(In English) O Lord you wish to gather all peoples in unity, makes us bearers of communion, Lord hear us we pray. 
For the wounded and depressed
For those who suffer
For those who commit their efforts to promote peace
To be like Christ with those in our communities
Kitchen Clean-Up

Jan Webb and Carolyn Judd decided that now was the perfect time to clean and reorganize the kitchen. We only found one item that we didn’t recognize. When the kitchen was redone the committee bought a black/chrome hand mixer with it’s tools. We found in one of the drawers tools that are red and chrome. These tools do not fit the mixer that we bought. So if you have a red hand mixer, please check to see if you have the tools that go with it. Call Jan (260-9806) or Carolyn (400-3064) and we will get them to you.

The Big Yellow Bin
Outside of the main entrance to the church by the angel fountain is the Manatee Food Bank drop off for nonperishable items. ECW and the Outreach Commission wants to thank you for your support of this effort; however, here are some guidelines that are especially important now that the bin is outside.
1. No glass jars
2. No cardboard boxed items until the bin can be inside. Moisture is a problem with the humidity.
3. Please check expiration dates.

What is especially needed:
Canned tuna, chicken, or salmon
Peanut butter (plastic container)
Jelly ( squeeze plastic container)
Canned soups, stews, chili
Canned vegetables
Trail mix or dried fruit
Canned fruit in own juice or water
Powdered milk
Dried beans
Infamil formula
Diapers
Baby wipes
Desitin cream
Baby food in plastic containers
It may be more feasible right now to contribute money to the food bank. To give a donation go to:  Meals on Wheels Plus.org or call 941-747-3663.
Big thanks to Linn who checks the bin every week for items that may not meet these guidelines. Please make her job easier by checking out what you are putting in the bin to see if they are on the list.
A Message about Outreach: Where your Donations Go

Children First: Children First serves the most at risk children and families in Sarasota County. During normal circumstances, our families struggle. In these extraordinary times, our families are facing a crisis of magnitude never seen before. They are struggling to meet the most basic needs of their children, while living with fear and uncertainty of their health, employment, housing and their child’s education. We must be a lifeline for our families and we need you to help. The four ways we are helping at this time are:
1. Prevent learning loss
2. Ensure basic hygiene
3. Support mental health
4. Provide emergency food 

Meals on Wheels - Plus: We are providing food to seniors who are isolated during the stay at home order. In the month of March, the number of seniors requesting assistance from Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee increased by 30% over the prior month. We are providing food to families via our Food4Families program, distributing thousands of meals each Friday to provide nutrition to families over the weekend In the last three weeks, we have provided 34,500 meals to families via the Food 4 Families program. We are providing food to nearly 100 food pantries and partner agencies in Manatee County We have already experienced a 20% increase in food being withdrawn from The Food Bank of Manatee and we anticipate the needs to grow exponentially over the coming weeks and months
Over the next several months, we will purchase thousands of dollars of food, leveraging our wholesale buying power, to provide food for people in need in the community.

Prayers for our People

Jesus said, “Do not be afraid. I am sending to you what my Father has promised.”

Reflection
Summer Reading List

The Manatee County library has been closed for months and the Marshalls are running out of books to read. We are now sharing books we have at home and discussing them as a family. One of my favorite summertime books is one that Elijah read; simply titled, “Skink.” Set in coastal Florida, it is a fictional story of a teenager who befriends a crazy man, named Skink, who also used to be the governor of Florida. So, in some respects, it is not far from reality. It is a wonderful summertime read and led to a discussion about the ethics of what happened, or should have happened, to the antagonist in the story.

A book that is too mature for Elijah was read by the three of us. It is an assigned reading book from Ethan’s AP English class, titled, “Zeitoun” (pronounced Zay-toon). It is set in August, 2005, in New Orleans and is the real-life story of Abdulrahman Zeitoun – a Syrian Muslim, successful business owner of a home repair company, who is a father of three, married to a white American, who was raised Southern Baptist and converted to Islam prior. The award winning book, written by Dave Eggers, is well researched and documents the real-life struggle of what happens when Zeitoun decides to stay home to watch over his business while his family evacuates because of Hurricane Katrina. Zeitoun’s family, religious, and business life is interesting enough, but, add the hurricane and it becomes a riveting story that involves the largely untold story of civil rights violations brought on by an alliance of a for-profit prison with untrained National Guardsmen. Ethan read it for class and found that it provided fruitful discussions with his school mates and their teacher. Likewise, we had many fruitful conversations at home about it.

One of my seminary professors said the Bible shouldn’t be read alone because it comes alive in discussion. We are experiencing that in the study of the Book of Revelation. I’m wondering if we should expand that idea. If you have read something that you’d like to share, please email Maria ( marialove@allangelslbk.org )
I’d like to compile a summer reading list for All Angels. I am interested in getting together on Zoom once in a while to discuss a book.

For as much as I enjoyed Zeitoun; for the summer, I’d have to stick with Skink.

Blessings to you on all your summer readings,

-Fr. Dave
