Welcome to virtual worship for this, the 14th Sunday after Pentecost

You can access the texts for Sunday by following this link:  
This week, Ezekiel gets some pretty stern marching orders from God; Paul makes a pitch for the rule of Love, and in Matthew, an anachronistic Jesus comments on church policy and practice. Very interesting...

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.

Hurricane Laura slammed into the Gulf Coast last week, which was the same week that marked the 15-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Episcopal Relief & Development is in constant communication with the impacted dioceses working to reach vulnerable populations devastated by the storm. Donate today to support these efforts. 

TONIGHT, we will gather - virtually - to test our knowledge of all things trivial. Our game begins at 7 PM.  
'A Patchwork Quiz' is the working title for this month's intellectual exercise, and as the name implies, it will be a veritable potpourri of topics and categories (signifying nothing)
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/or trash talking with your opponents. 

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.

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.
The Connections Commission has almost completed the task of gathering information for our upcoming new and improved website. We are now in the process of gathering pictures to use and need your help. We are looking for photos, both current and historical, and hope that you can help us.  If you have any pictures that you would like to share - on your phone, stored on your computer or in albums, bags and boxes - that are related to all things All Saints, please scan and send to the Connections Commission (allsaints1692connections@gmail.com). If you cannot scan or send them, please let us know and we can arrange to make copies for the photos you have to share. Thanks, in advance, for sharing!
