Together in Faith: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
In some passages, Jesus asks us to take up our crosses and follow him. Here, he tells us to seek rest and refreshment. The call to discipleship, to stewardship, is complex, demanding many different responses. We need to be alert to today’s call.
Bishop's Committee Parishioner Liaison: Every week there will be an assigned member of the Bishop's Committee to serve as a Parishioner Liaison. We encourage parishioners to seek out this assigned member whenever there is a suggestion, question or concern. The liaisons will bring all comments to the monthly meeting of the Bishop's Committee to be addressed as appropriate. This week’s Parishioner Liaison is Anali Perry
Fr. Harold Knight’s Birthday: On July 26th, Fr. Harold Knight will turn 105!!! He is not going to be able to make it this year for the celebration, so we are collecting birthday cards to deliver to him and request that any be turned in no later than Saturday, July 22nd. There will be a basket in Lion’s Den to collect the cards.
Devine Diners: The Devine Diners program kicked off last weekend with 20 attendees enjoying an indoor picnic at the home of Bobbie Degnon. Everyone enjoyed the good food and conversations with others. A list was provided showing the makeup of the smaller groups and all groups met to decide what their plans are. Fortunately we have had a few additional people sign up this week because they heard about all the fun. You are still welcome to join by contacting Carolyn Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 817-266-8016. New groups will be assigned in September but you don't have to wait until then to join.
