Dear Brothers & Sisters in our Lord,
A blessed Veterans Day to you each and all. Today is an especially good time to remind ourselves how much we owe the brave individuals who have made great sacrifices to defend America and our freedoms. To our veterans, those “upon another shore and in a greater light,” the women and men who continue to serve our nation, and their family members: thank you.
Remember that St. Bart’s is feeding the residents of Camp Unity later today. If you can join us, feel free to be at Bear Creek United Methodist Church at 5:30pm.
The boxes for Operation Christmas Child have arrived and may be picked up during Coffee Hour following tomorrow morning’s Holy Eucharist. The boxes are due back at the church by the following Sunday, November 19th.
November’s Vestry Meeting takes place tomorrow in the Leen Center’s first classroom. The Anglican Church Women meets the following Sunday.
Food items may continue to be deposited in the Narthex for monthly distribution.
A brief, said Mass will be offered on Thanksgiving Day at 10am.
Taking a gander at the 15-day weather forecast, which calls for rain each and every day, now makes me appreciate my recent time in Guanajuato even more:
But the return to more typical Seattle area weather and creeping darkness during this time of year also serves to remind us that we’re rapidly closing in on “the Season of Light,” during which time we prepare for the celebration of the Incarnation of “the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world” (St. John 1:9).
See you in the morning—much love & many blessings,
