Twenty-second Sunday After Pentecost - November 10, 2019
Almighty and merciful God, it is only by your gift that your faithful people offer you true and laudable service: Grant that we may run without stumbling to obtain your heavenly promises; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Morsel for Meditation

Has it ever struck you that those who most fear to die are the ones who most fear to live? Life is flexible and free, and you are rigid and frozen. Life carries all things away, and you crave stability and permanence. You fear life and death because you cling. You cannot bear the thought of losing a relative or friend; you dread losing a pet theory or ideology or belief. When you cling to nothing, when you have no fear of losing anything, then you are free to flow like a mountain stream that is always fresh and sparkling and alive.

Dear Friends and Family at St. Paul’s,

The Happening Movement is a weekend program for high school kids to get a glimpse of the potential that Christianity holds for them. During this weekend the goal is to introduce young people to Jesus calling them to grow into a deeper, more committed relationship with Christ and learn how to represent Christ in their world. 

Audrey Ballard has been given the opportunity to participate in Happenings #160 at Camp All Saints on the weekend of November 15-17, 2019. We ask that you please pray for her while she prepares to go and participate in this wonderful program, and send a note of encouragement if so led. During the weekend Audrey will be given the letters and emails revealing to her how much she means to you and the depth of your love and support for her. This is a very significant part of the weekend. In the context of Happening, your note plus other letters and cards are given to ‘Happeners’ in order to impress upon them the love and support they have during the weekend and in their whole lives. 

We like to keep these letters a surprise, so please do not tell them about your letter. We hope you will take this opportunity to express what is normally very difficult to reveal, yet so critical during this time for the weekend.   

It is very important to mail your letters  by Nov.11  to make sure that they arrive at the camp in time for the weekend. Send letters to: 

Happening #160 (Audrey Ballard) 
C/O Camp All Saints 
418 Stanton Way 
Pottsboro, TX 75076 

If you miss the deadline, you can send your letter by email, but  no later than November 14 th .  Write the letter in the body of the email: NO ATTACHMENTS PLEASE! Email your letters to   and include Audrey Ballard in the subject line of the email , to help our youth staff members immensely as they prepare and distribute the letters. 

Love in Christ 
P. S. The Happening youth staff would like to invite you to attend the weekend’s closing service at Camp All Saints in Pottsboro, beginning at 2:00PM on Sunday November 17 th

Thank you all for your love and support of Audrey!
God’s peace,
Father Nick

If you've ever felt uncomfortable talking about your faith with people who believe differently—you're not alone. When you look at the life and ministry of Jesus, you'll see nine different ways that he engaged with people. These practices, or "arts," are skills you can learn that will naturally deepen your connections with others. Spiritual conversations may then become an everyday reality, and you'll have a front row seat as God changes people's lives.

Mark your calendar and learn how to create a safe space to have natural, loving, and spiritual conversations with others.
