A Message from Chad

Dear Friends in Christ,

It has been a rainy week, so I hope you have all managed to stay dry. Wet weeks like this don't bode well for my second job at FedEx, so keep all those who work outside in the weather in your prayers. Even more than that, remember to pray for those on the Atlantic coast and elsewhere whose homes and health have been affected by Hurricane Elsa this last week. We are experiencing only a fraction of what they received, so they could certainly use our prayers at this time. Pray also for relief workers and donors who are helping those families in need.

We have a handful of events to look forward to this weekend. Particularly, note above that the Men's Breakfast and Women's Brunch will both be on Saturday morning at separate locations. These meetings are always light, refreshing (and not to mention tasty!) outings wherein we can fellowship with and get to know each other. I would especially commend these events if you want to get to know more people in the church outside of a quick Sunday conversation. These breakfasts/brunches are a wonderful opportunity to do this, so we hope that you will join us!

Finally, Bob Archibald announced on Sunday that we will have the distinct pleasure of having one of our candidates for the open rector position, Fr. Joe Gasbarre, with us once again this weekend. He will preach and celebrate the Eucharist with us this time, so we look forward to having another opportunity to get to know him and to see him lead a worship service for us. He is looking forward to being with us as well, so do try to make time to say hello to him this weekend while he is with us. As we prepare to welcome Joe, his wife Alyssa, and their two beautiful children into our community once again this weekend, be paying attention to our Proper 11 prayer for this week. Be praying for our Search Committee, that they would receive God's guidance as humble servants, and that God would give us what we need as a Church not according to our own will, but his.

Let your merciful ears, O Lord, be open to the prayers of your humble servants; and, that we may receive what we ask, teach us by your Holy Spirit to ask only those things that are pleasing to you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the same Spirit lives and reigns for ever and ever.  Amen.

God's Peace,
Chad Sanner
