As Julie announced in worship on Sunday, we are starting a worship and sermon series on what it means to be community. In an age when isolation and loneliness and division are becoming epidemic, we remember our call to live as the Body of Christ together, where every part contributes to the whole and none can say, “I have no need of you.”
As I think about it, the entire Bible is essentially a guidebook on how to live in community—as the people of Israel in the Old Testament, and the people of the Way in the New Testament. For now, start paying attention to the communities in your life: family, church, neighborhood, friends, etc. Do your communities, chosen and unchosen, give you life and support or do they make you anxious and exhausted? What do you want out of community? At least until the Advent season, we will explore these questions, along with the wisdom of scripture together.

Pastor Julie is organizing a Centering Prayer event in our backwoods on Monday, Sept. 30. Feel free to pass the word:

Our Bible Study is finally settling into a routine, meeting on the 2nd and 4th Sunday evenings of each month through December. This means our next meeting is September 22 at 6:30pm in the church sanctuary. All are welcome.

From Elder Meredith: Sometimes people in the congregation need an extra helping hand. I would like to offer that help in the form of meals. If you would like to participate by taking a meal to a family, please send me an email. It would be great to have a list of people willing to participate ahead of time. In late September and October, for instance, the Clary family will have such a need. Thank you for considering this, Meredith (

The Enneagram is the personality system that I teach in prison. Later this month, there is an introduction to this system of self-understanding, and you only need to drive over to the Carondelet Center by St Kate’s campus, not to prison! All the details are at this website: This will be a great event whether you are brand new to the Enneagram or already have some background. The cost is only $20 for the three-hour intro. If you have any questions, please talk to Pastor Phil.

We are getting a whole show of quilts in our Sanctuary and hallway this Monday at 11am, around the theme of “Song-spiration!” If you are available, even for just an hour, to help Carol hang the these quilts, please contact her by Text or call her at 651 468-9888. Thank you!

We continue to pray for Leslie Snow as she began chemotherapy last week. She is experiencing both good days and hard days.
