An Opportunity to Practice Our Faith

This collection of daily prayers was compiled to bring understanding, comfort, and compassion to soothe the divisiveness and tension of this election season. It is through the lens of our faith that we can see how to create harmony with our neighbors regardless of our political perspectives.  Feel free to share with family and friends. 

We truly only succeed when we work together.

Our Interim Rector, Fr. Bill Lupfer will help us to turn belief into spiritual practice in this weeknight class offering. The online Zoom format will enable a more interactive approach to discussing the outline of the faith, commonly called the Catechism.

Serve  & Connect . . .

Right now, while in-person gatherings are discouraged, please call friends and family to check in with one another.  Particularly, check in on those who are not comfortable online or have Internet access. Not everyone texts. So be conscious of your loved ones' preferred method of communication. 

 

For those battling any form of mental illness, be it anxiety, depression, OCD, ADHD, etc. times like these can be truly overwhelming. We may be required to physically distance ourselves from others, but we need to keep in contact in any other ways we can. So call, text, FaceTime, Skype, use social media, send a card, whatever, but keep in touch, especially with those you know are also battling other issues. We all need to know there are people out there who care about us right now.


Taking care of each other is the best way we can serve the common good. 

Loneliness is a struggle for everyone right now and recent surveys indicate that almost half of Americans are having feelings of depression or anxiety as the effects of social distancing drain our spirits. All Saints’ developed an educational brochure to help you and the people you care about manage loneliness in the midst of pandemic. In it you will find ideas for addressing loneliness when life requires us to stay apart from each other. We also invite you to explore the Loneliness in America Project for other resources and education. Loneliness has been a significant problem in the United States for many years but the pandemic of 2020, and the self-isolating behavior it forced on us, makes this distressing state of mind an almost universal experience.

"The Gathering to Grow" Home Study Group with Patrice & Lucian Taylor


Gathering to Grow will meet the second and fourth Monday evenings of the month, 6:30pm to 8:00pm, September 28, October 12 and 26, and November 16 and 30.


As we all contend with pandemic living, are you feeling stressed and a little imprisoned? Are you wondering if there's any meaning in this suffering? If so, you’ll want to join  Deacon Patrice Al-Shatti Taylor and educator Lucian Taylor for the Fall session of Gathering to Grow, a Zoom-based small group where we care for each other through teaching, fellowship, and prayer. This session, we will be studying the life and work of the apostle Paul while living under house arrest. There we hope to find nuggets of inspiration for our situation as well as laughter and support in the hearts of each other. 


Here’s an outline of the teaching series:


Making the Most of Your House Arrest:  The Apostle Paul’s Guide to Thriving Under Pressure


September 28: The Root of the House Arrest:  An Unjust Imprisonment

and Breaking up the Ground: Suffering, Praying, and Sharing

October 26: Growing Under Pressure, Part 2: Writing the Book of Philippians
