Women confront a multitude of life-challenges these days. Many are in need of spiritual nourishment, focus, and authentic community to better handle these challenges. Some also might struggle with insecurity, broken relationships, loneliness, or change. Many women are finding nurture and grounding in their relationship with God as we meet each week.
Fr. Reid, Rev. Kathy, and the All Saints’ Vergers are pleased to announce that Henry Spake will be entering into Youth Verger training. He will be installed as a Verger-in-Training on March 17 at the 8:50 and 10:50 services.
Fr. Reid recently mentioned to me that he thinks about Jesus all the time. Of course, I responded with something like, “That’s great!” but actually thought something like “Really? That seems extreme. On the other hand, it is your job, so … good for you!” And good for us. After all, who wants a pastor that doesn’t spend a great deal of time thinking about Jesus? Fr. Reid’s passion for Jesus gets him out of bed in the wee hours of the morning to pray and study. It gives him energy to put in long days and drives him to work so hard for the rest of us. He has to do budgets, and run committees and supervise staff and all that – but always in service to the goal of helping his flock share his passionate desire to know and follow Christ.
The International Order of Saint Luke is an inter-denominational religious order dedicated to the Christian healing ministry begun in 1932 by an Episcopal priest. OSL is ecumenical, with members belonging to a variety of Christian denominations. OSL believes that healing exists today. Healing occurs through the hands of health professionals as well as through the hands of fellow Christians. As the Bible teaches, we are equipped to heal with the power of Jesus Christ.
