With sadness we announce that Bill Rolston, our friend and brother in Christ, has finished his baptismal journey and now rests in the arms of Jesus. 

We also learned that The Rev. Donald Hugh Dinwiddie, a former Rector of St. Paul's, departed this life on October 5, 2020. Now he worships our Great High Priest in the Kingdom of God. 

May their souls, and souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace.

A Morsel for Meditation
How easy we find it to condemn structural injustice, institutional violence, and social sin! All that is quite real, but where are the sources of that social sin? They are in the heart of every person. Modern-day society is an anonymous society in which nobody accepts blame but everybody is responsible. All of us are responsible for what happens, but the sin remains anonymous. We are all sinners, and we have all contributed our grain of sand to this mountain of crimes and violence in our country. That is why salvation begins with the human person, with human dignity, with freeing every individual from sin.
Oscar Romero, The Scandal of Redemption

COLLECT
Almighty God, you know that we have no power in ourselves to help ourselves: Keep us both outwardly in our bodies and inwardly in our souls, that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Greetings in Christ. Thank you for your faithfulness and your patience in this season of both uncertainty and hope. There are considerable improvements in our situation: more vaccines, downward trends. Ahead early in the fourth quarter is not the time to let up! So we continue with the same protocols: allowing indoor worship safely (masked, distanced, without singing, what we call Step C), and encouraging outdoor worship, with singi: ng, which will get easier as we move into the spring.  Throughout the past year we have learned that worship which follows these protocols has been safe, and that each of our problems has resulted from not doing so.
