Over several Sundays at St.Paul’s we are going to be exploring the latest book by Bishop N.T. Wright, “God and Pandemic”.
This is a deeply thoughtful and prayerful reflection on how followers of Jesus ought to think about and respond to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and it’s a warning against some of the ways that Christians have already gotten both of these things very very wrong.
If you have questions about why a loving God would let something like this happen, or how we should think about God and/or God’s call to us in these challenging times, then this series is for you.
This Sunday morning at 9:30, weather permitting, we will be gathering OUTSIDE St. Paul’s for a service of Morning Prayer & Praise. There will be lots of singing and the service will end with a “by request praise time” where you get to pick what songs we sing!* You can send your requests in advance by emailing email@example.com.
*Song selections will be limited to those found in the ‘Mission Praise’ song book.
Musical accompaniment will not be available for all songs.
While public gatherings of Holy Communion have been able to resume with lots of very careful precautions, we also want to support those for whom receiving Communion in public is not yet an option.
If you would like to receive Communion in your home, we would be very pleased to help make that happen.
Contact the parish office at 832-337 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
We had such a meaningful time this summer gathering with families for a safe and socially distanced time of hearing and responding to God’s word together that we can’t wait to do it again.
You can register your family right now for our gathering on Sept 20th at 4pm.
