Thanks So Much!!
On Saturday, 9 May Joe Bleier and I traveled to Sulpher Springs to purchase a new John Deere X350 riding mower from United Ag and Turf. The mower is a bit bigger than the old one. The Lawn and Garden boss, Sam Asseff, is impressed with its capability. It is a commercial quality mower with an 18.5hp Kawasaki engine and a 42” wide mowing deck. A digital display is included which monitors fuel status, battery voltage, engine running time, mowing blade status and several other functions. It is easy to steer and fun to drive. Laura Funk gave it it’s first workout on Monday, 11 May. Check out the picture of our new addition to the Lawn and Garden crew. 
Many thanks to the donors that responded to the need for a new mower. Thanks so much!!

Rector's Update - May 1st
Greetings to the saints of St. Paul’s,

Some have been without receiving the Eucharist since we stopped having regular in-person services on March 15 th , and two months is a long time! This week I started distributing consecrated hosts (i.e. the wafers) to those who let me know they’d like to receive them. Each Sunday, I will consecrate extra wafers, and have them distributed to those who let me know that they would like to receive it. During the online service, I’ll ask that those who received the hosts to consume it with me during the Eucharist. We’ll continue to do this as long as we need to do it. The catch is that you have to let me know that you want to receive the host by the Thursday afternoon prior to the Sunday you’d like to receive the Eucharist. Please let me know the number of people receiving, and how often you’d like to receive. The best way to let me know is via email: fathernickfunk@gmail.com . (click to read more)

As We Re-emerge

Each of us needs to pay attention to what we feel while our world—our neighborhood, our city—starts to loosen the restrictions that we have been living with for the past couple of months. It’s like emerging from a fast. You don’t want to eat too quickly; in fact, you want to savor every little bit. I think of cold water after a long walk on which I forgot to bring a water bottle: the way it hits the top of my mouth, back there above my tongue; the way it can be felt going down the throat. What will you feel—what are you feeling—as this slow but palpable transition begins? Continue reading
