A Message from Fr. Bryan

Dear Friends in Christ,

The sun is out, and the weather forecast for the next few days is not too bad. I, for one, am ready for the Spring and Summer, and I know you are too. I want to mention just a few things this morning, so this will be a short email.

First, Maggie Archibald (with help from the Tritabaughs) has been working to put a care package together for Fr. Lawrence. She has created a google doc with a list of things that we would like to send to him in Afghanistan. The list includes all kinds of things that he could use, so please have a look and sign up for an item that you can bring to the church. Feel free to drop items off this Sunday (March 7th) or next Sunday (March 14th) at the latest. Also, please note, that handwritten cards from you or from your children will be especially appreciated! Sign-up for items here.

Second, after a suggestion from Dan Bittaker, I intended to provide a link last week to the Anglican Relief and Development Fund (ARDF) effort in Texas but failed to do so. I can assure you, from talking with family and friends, that the needs in Texas are serious and ongoing. My parents are still without water, as are many, many others. I received this in an email recently, describing the support work of ARDF.

Anglican Church in North America churches in Texas are reaching out to those left hungry, thirsty, and homeless due to the ice, extreme cold, and the widespread power outages affecting the region.

You can support them with a gift to the Anglican Relief and Development Fund. All donations go to the most urgent needs on the ground and you can further designate your gift by typing Texas in the comment box on the donation form.

If you would like to support the ARDF efforts in Texas, you can do so by donating here and typing "Texas" in the comment box.

Finally, I will have information in a future email concerning our support of Urban Ark in Canton. Dale Boston is organizing this effort.

I look forward to seeing you all on Sunday.

Grace & Peace,
