Welcome to virtual worship for this, the 15th Sunday after Pentecost

You can access the texts for Sunday by following this link:  
 
This week, Track 2 takes us into the book of Genesis for the conclusion of the story of Joseph - so much more here than meets the eye; in Romans, Paul continues his concluding exhortations to the faithful, and in Matthew, Jesus offers a parable about forgiveness...taking us right back to where we started in Genesis. (You can't make this stuff up!)

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.

Did you know that you can knit without needles? Even a guy can probably do that. But is it truly a skill you can learn or is it magic? To find out for sure, on Saturday, September 26, 10 am, join Susan Custis as she presents "Yarn without Needles."

Who needs Jacques Pepin or America's Test Kitchen when we have Filo Blake. Filo, trained as an expert meat cutter by Nicks of Calvert, on Saturday, October 10, 10 am, will teach us the proper way to butcher and prepare various cuts of meat. Join him to improve you culinary abilities, whether in the kitchen on the grill.

We are looking for others with special expertise to share. If you have a skill, hobby, or particular interest that you would like to present on All Saints Skills Extravaganza, you are invited to join the fun. Please contact Sherrill Munn, email: njoydancin@aol.com or phone: 410-286-7586 to let him know your skill and schedule you program.
Spudnik Sets Record

Despite this very strange and difficult year, we have broken a record in the Spudnik Gardens. I say gardens because we now have our primary Vegetable Garden, but put in a Pollinator Garden last year and this year, in spite of COVID-19, a Children's Garden. The record I refer to is the amount of fresh produce we have donated from the Spudnik Gardens to local food pantries. Last year we set a record, donating more than 467 pounds. This year we have surpassed that record donating, as of September 8, more than 510 pounds. A primary objective of the Spudnik Gardens is to help feed the hungry of Calvert County by donating garden produce to food pantries in the County. The produce this year has included Lettuces, Collards, Kale, Cabbage, Spinach, Radishes, Beets, Carrots, more than 100 pounds of Potatoes, Tomatoes, Eggplants, Corn, hot and sweet Peppers, Melons, Squash, Beans, Cucumbers and Asian Greens. We recently succession-planted fall vegetables, including Kale, Broccoli, Cabbage, New Zealand Spinach (not a true Spinach), Radishes, Collards and true Spinach.

PLEASE NOTE AND RESPECT
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!
