This Sunday
St. Timothy’s New Mission: 
Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we experience the love of Jesus Christ & share it with others.

God is surely doing a “New” Thing Here. Dreams are turning into Goals. Giving Thanks for All Who Helped With Our Strategic Planning Weekend. We now have a strategic plan all in attendance are being asked to edit. Then we will be creating teams based on interest and calling. 

Strategic Areas of Focus for Teams are: 
  • Organizational Structure: Worship
  • Organizational Structure: Invite, Welcome, Connect
  • Organizational Structure: Facilities and Maintenance
  • Christian Formation & Fellows
  • Faith Based Youth Activities

As the Daughters of the King motto says: 

For His Sake…
I am but one, but I am one. 
I cannot do everything, but I can do something.
What I can do, I ought to do. 
What I ought to do, by the Grace of God I will do.
Lord, what will you have me do? 

Let Ron or Pastor Robin+ know how you would like to serve.

Reunion with Diocese of North Texas
Bishop Andrew Doyle has called the Diocese of Texas 2022 Council into a Second Session for the consideration of a reunion with the Episcopal Church of North Texas. The Diocese of North Texas was formed following the separation of a large portion of the Diocese of Fort Worth that joined the Anglican Church in North America. Following many years of litigation, the remaining 13 parishes of the Episcopal Church of North Texas has determined that their best option to remain with the Episcopal Church is to request a reunion with the Diocese of Texas.
The 2022 Council of the Diocese of Texas will debate and vote on the following two resolutions which have been approved by the Diocesan Standing Committee and Executive Board:
  • This reconvened 173rd Annual Council of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas hereby approves the Agreement of Reunion attached hereto and affirms its desire to reunite the Episcopal Church of North Texas with this Diocese pursuant to Agreement and Canons of The Episcopal Church.
  • This reconvened 173rd Annual Council of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas hereby approves the creation of another position of Bishop Assistant for the Diocese and authorizes the Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas to appoint a Bishop for this position, with the consent of the Standing Committee of the Diocese, under such terms and conditions as the Bishop may determine.

For additional information, please review the website: reunion2022.org.
On Thursday evening, June 9th, the Second Session of the Diocese of Texas Council voted to accept both proposals as outlined above.

Caregiver Support
Being a Caregiver takes a lot out of us.

I want to encourage you to take good care of yourself especially if you are a caregiver.

Below are several resources I found helpful when journeying with my Mother, Pat, who had dementia and then Alzheimers.

Caregiver Connection is run by a friend who works for the Sealy Center for aging. It’s another great resource you can access from home.

If you are a caregiver, I want to know about it. At the very least, we can be praying for you!

God bless you and keep you and be your strength.
In Hope For God’s Best,
Robin+
Alzheimer's Hotline
Alzheimers Hotline: 1-866-232-8484

Trained Social Workers are available 24/7 for free to listen and help point you to resources or just encourage you. I hope you will call on them. Sometimes we just need an unbiased person to help validate what we are experiencing is hard.
Caregiver Connection

A Message and Prayer from Bishop Doyle
Let us Unite our Voices for the People of Uvalde
I am asking all people in the diocese to pray for the people of Uvalde. Before we begin to say anything, or do anything we begin with prayer. Then let or prayers guide us towards virtuous action for the welfare of children.

Let us join our kin in West Texas and pray.

O God our Father, whose beloved Son took children into his arms and blessed them: Give us grace to entrust your beloved children of Uvalde to your everlasting care and love, and bring them fully into your heavenly kingdom. Pour out your grace and loving-kindness on all who grieve; surround them with your love; and restore their trust in your goodness. We lift up to you our weary, wounded souls and ask you to send your Holy Spirit to take away the anger and violence that infects our hearts, and make us instruments of your peace and children of the light. In the Name of Christ who is our hope, we pray. Amen.
