CHOW - Refurbished Pantry Opens Now!

Several weeks ago the pantry freezer stopped working and needed to be replaced. Thanks to parishioner Chris Mitchell, and her financial gift, we purchased a new freezer and refurbished the CHOW pantry, including installing new flooring, cleaning, and making a few compliance changes necessary to operate.

Thanks to Barb Stanton, Gene Stanton, Tom Savory, Jim Davidson, and Nancy McGorry for providing their time and commitment. We will re-open November 1st as planned.

Please purchase a replacement floor tile for CHOW for $10. There will be a donation jar in the back of the Sanctuary now through January.

Podcast on Graced Conversations

Christ Episcopal Church has been supporting the Community of Grace, an intentional multi-racial group of conversation and non-liturgical worship. Christ Church and Community of Grace have much in common in Christ. Community of Grace is a church plant led by Rev. Alicia Dixon-Garrard. Mother Elizabeth participated in podcasts for this group. You can listen to the podcast here.

Christ Church was the venue for Community of Grace's music and art videos for Advent and Christmas. I encourage you to listen to the podcasts and explore Community of Grace's website: https://www.cogst.com/blank-page

Prayers & Prayer List

I cannot tell you how the light comes, but that it does. That it will. That it works its way into the deepest dark that enfolds you, though it may seem long ages in coming or arrive in a shape you did not foresee.

And so we pray we may turn ourselves toward the light giving thanks for Christ’s birth and this communion. May we lift our faces to let the light find us. May we bend our bodies to follow the arc it makes. May we open and open more and open still to the blessed light that comes. *

With thanks to Jan Richardson*

Prayer List

In the week ahead, please pray for comfort and healing for: Bill, Bobbie, Candie, Connor, Connie, Dan Barker & family, Don, George, Joell, Kathy, Mark, Millie, Mother Elizabeth, Osmond, Pat, Rick, Rose, Sally, and Scott.

Prayer for our Country:

Almighty God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage: We humbly beseech thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of thy favor and glad to do thy will. Bless our land with honorable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way. Defend our liberties, and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindreds and tongues. Endue with the spirit of wisdom those to whom in thy Name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice and peace at home, and that, through obedience to thy law, we may show forth thy praise among the nations of the earth. In the time of prosperity, fill our hearts with thankfulness, and in the day of trouble, suffer not our trust in thee to fail; all which we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The boy who once took great delight in his military figures now was baffled, diminished and annoyed by the criticism. His aunt …
