At St. Paul’s We’re Committed to Being a Place of Peace in the Storm for Our Community

June 29, 2013

Psalm 42

The flooding our community has experienced has left so many lives in turmoil. We recognize that one way we can help at St. Paul’s is, as our Bishop recommended to Parishes in his June 25 Pastoral Letter, by opening our building “as a place of retreat and refuge, for quiet, relaxation and prayer away from the demands of the tasks at hand.” In the month of July, our doors will be open Tuesday through Thursday mornings from 9 till 12 noon, for anyone who wants to come and spend some time in quiet reflection and prayer. The coffee will be on, and there’ll be Bibles and other printed material available to encourage people’s hearts. On Wednesdays, there will be a Service of Holy Eucharist in the Sanctuary at 9:15 a.m., followed by a time of prayer and discussion over coffee in the Hall. Please spread the word. We want all the members of our community who are hurting to know that St. Paul’s is a place where they can come and experience peace in the midst of the storm.

Thanks to my daughter, Alyssa Munro-Tyson, for the image of the deer at the top of this posting (it was resting in the shade in our backyard). The image will enlargen if you click on it (which you’ll need to do to read the type, unless your eyes are better than mine!). Embedded below is a video of the Canterbury Cathedral Choir singing the words in the image, from the 1662 BCP version of Psalm 42. We listened to the Cathedral choir sing this Psalm last Sunday, as together we sought the face of our God.
