FEBRUARY 1st THROUGH MARCH 1st 

IS BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Greetings, Saints –  Peace and Justice in Action will be at fellowship after service on Sunday with suggestions for reading and study during this Lent.

ASEC Peace and Justice in Action offers the following books for a deeper understanding and experience of Black History in the USA:

1.  I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou –  An autobiography by Maya Angelou written in 1969 that chronicles her early and later years.  Its a coming of age story that demonstrates how strength of character and a love of literature helped her to overcome racism and trauma.  

2.  Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi –  A novel of breathtaking sweep and emotional power that traces three hundred years in Ghana and along the way also becomes a truly great American novel. Extraordinary for its exquisite language, its implacable sorrow, its soaring beauty, and for its monumental portrait of the forces that shape families and nations, Homegoing heralds the arrival of a major new voice in contemporary fiction.

WEDNESDAY SOUP SUPPERS AND LENTEN STUDY 

begin February 21st at 6 pm in the Parish Hall.  Our book has changed but the author hasn’t.  Benedictine Prioress  Joan Chittister’s book, “In God’s Holy Light: Wisdom from the Desert Monastics”, explores the wisdom of desert mothers and fathers who lived in the Egyptian wastelands between the third and fifth centuries -now regarded as the Olympians of the spiritual life. 

Sign up so we know how many to expect. 

Martha has volunteered to order books from Amazon or you can order your own. This book is also available on Audible narrated by the author.

Lent is the time to make space for God – to take time apart from our daily lives for silence, to reflect and clear our hearts and minds of distractions so we might hear God’s voice. Let’s make time to listen in the silent spaces together.

Pray for Peace.

On Wednesday, March 6 th at 7:00PM the All Saints Peace and Justice Team is hosting an “Evening of Prayer for Peace” in the All Saints sanctuary. War and violence around the world compel us to pray for our sisters and brothers and most of all, for the children broken and traumatized by war.

Our Beloved Saint Francis reminds us, “until you have prayed, you have done nothing.” So, Saints, let’s join together on the evening of March 6 and let our prayerful voices for peace be heard. To learn more, chat with Reverend Debra or any Peace and Justice Team Member.
