Welcome to virtual worship for this, the 10th Sunday after Pentecost

You can access the texts for Sunday by following this link:  
We go back to Track 2 for our OT text - a famous passage in which Elijah is called out for hiding in a cave when there is work to be done elsewhere - even the mightiest of prophets had his moments of doubt and fear; cut to Matthew where Peter also has his moment of doubt and despair in the face of turbulent and demanding times (hint: water is a symbol of chaos); and, Paul continues to provide filler from the letter to the Romans

As always, we will open the worship space at 9:45 AM to give everyone a chance to do a little greeting before the service begins at 10. And, we will once again be called into silent reflection before the service begins.

Trivia Tonight!
On Friday evening, August 7, we will enter the most challenging of all human contests, testing the limits of our knowledge of all things non-essential. Our game begins at 7 PM. 
The game room will open at 6:40 so you have time to register your team or individual 'trivia' name and do some last minute posturing and trash talking with your opponents.
This month's theme is:The Dog Days of Summer

Here is the link, your key to an evening of trivial frivolity:

Feel free to invite friends and family to play. Please have them contact us at allsaints1692@allsaints1692.org so we can identify them when they arrive for the quiz. And, before the game, please check out the specials at the Scorpion Brewery in Owings - our partner in trivia for going on six years. Through our monthly contests, we have raised thousands of dollars in support of youth leadership development in Calvert County, and also money to feed hungry families and individuals in our communities. 

Message from our Rector

As we grow more comfortable with Zoom I wanted to announce the opening of virtual office hours. I will make myself available for thirty minute to one hour time slots for any purpose under heaven, every Wednesday and Friday, between 1 and 4 PM. Please email me at phelpsjrko@gmail to make an appointment, (Anything from theology to baseball to mission to just checking in, the agenda is yours.)

As always, for pastoral emergencies and other urgent matters, never hesitate to call or text me at any time on 410-790-1631.

From our Music Director:

Since we are still gathering for Virtual Sunday Services and we are using primarily pre-recorded music, the need to create videos and PowerPoint presentations has become our modus operandi. It would make those presentations much more personal if, in their creation, I could use some photos that are special to our own folks. If you would like to share photos for this purpose of scenery from your travels or local scenery, flowers, gardens, wildlife...the list goes on...please email them to me at: dewatson94@comcast.net
Thanks so much!
Deb Watson

There are now children's face masks available in the church. Thank you, Sue Pierce!

Almond Roca Candy Recipe
1 cup butter (keep cold)
1 cup sugar
1 cup whole almonds
3 Hershey Bars
1 cup finely chopped pecans
Heat in an iron skillet (a regular skillet will do) butter, sugar, and almonds, over medium-high heat. Stir constantly. Ingredients will melt and gradually blend together. Reduce heat to medium. Keep stirring. When mixture thickens and becomes a medium tan/toffee color (10 to 15 min.), pour onto sheet pan. Spread the mixture with a spoon or shake the pan to distribute. It won’t cover end to end. Place broken pieces of chocolate bar on top, allow to melt and then spread evenly over toffee. Sprinkle with chopped nuts. Chill at least 2 hours and then break into pieces.
The ECW meeting via Zoom on the 3rd Saturday of the month is changed to 1 pm for the duration of the quarantine.
Virtual coffee shop We still gather virtually for coffee, tea and conversation on Thursday mornings. The Coffee Shop will open at 9 AM, and close at 11. Feel free to pop in anytime, and stay as long as you like.

Special Projects of All Saints’ Regathering

As we look forward to a gradual, optional regathering of the Parish many of us think fondly of our beautiful and historic campus and look forward to being there together again. The fact is, though, that our lovely campus could benefit from some sprucing up to be ready for our return.  And, that’s where you come in! We’re inviting each person and household of All Saints to adopt a small part of the Campus to have it in readiness. That could be a garden in need of weeding, a doorway needing painting, a pathway needing repair…any number of things. (See the partial list below, some perfect for families to involve their children in a safe “adventure”.) The plan is for the people to be able to work on their particular project at their own preferred times, socially distanced and otherwise following safe practices. Charles Sadler, our Campus Use Coordinator, has kindly agreed to coordinate this effort. He will link people with projects, ensure you have the appropriate information and materials for the project, keep track of progress, and put together the honor roll to recognize each individual or household who played a part. If you’d like to adopt a project, or discuss it, please reach out to Charles as follows:  charlessadlerjr@gmail.com or 301/807-4548 (cell & text).
Special Projects:
- Sanctuary North doors painted
- Sanctuary South doors painted
- Sanctuary Arched window painted
- Parish Hall Upper outside doors painted
- Parish Hall Exterior kitchen window painted
- Flower beds freshened (several opportunities)
- Resetting some pathway blocks on sand base
- Other projects you’d like to suggest?
Parish buildings are not open now, and only individuals specifically authorized for an essential service may be in them (e.g., Heartfelt food packing). Those authorized individuals must wear masks, must practice social distancing and must sanitize touch areas as they enter and as they leave. This is not a matter of personal choice and applies to everyone including volunteers, business suppliers, and contract personnel. If you note a deviation you may politely remind the individual. If you are not comfortable doing that or doing so doesn’t correct the problem, please contact a church officer. There is now a sign in sheet at both entrances. Please fill it out with your name, date and time in/out of the parish hall. Thank you.
Reminder From the News Team. Info and flyers to be published in the August monthly newsletter needed to be received via email by Tuesday, August 25th. Please send information to allsaints1692@allsaints1692.org AND allsaints1692connections @gmail.com. This allows time for editing and clarification when needed. Please submit your event in the form you wish it to appear and complete. Example: If it's a cooking show, please include the recipe with the copy.
