Lots of Holy Spirit Action!


I honestly can’t tell you how excited I am with our current vestry members and with our parishioners.  I do believe the Holy Spirit is doing some new things here, and we’ve only just begun to find out what’s in store. This is a great time to be part of this wonderful church community.

Cindy Armstrong and Ted Todd braved a sunny Thursday evening to host a table at the Hanover Student Activities Fair earlier this month, while I got to tour all the other organizations, both college- and community-based, that were reaching out to the new arrivals. It was fascinating to meet them all.  There’s a group that does improv comedy (what if we invited them for an evening show?), another group that enjoys archery (I haven’t shot an arrow since high school and was soooo tempted to sign up!), and service groups that tutor local students in Madison and Hanover, and many more!

I always hope that we might find ourselves a student or two, and we may yet.  Because … we have the opportunity to “host” evening prayers at Brown Chapel coming up (October 8 @ 5:45) – so let the cookie brigade get to work!  All are welcome to attend this event!

I’ve also been in touch with some of the groups I am part of outside of church about the possibility of offering occasions for silent meditation or contemplative prayer – either here in the church or at another quiet location.  Let me know if you’re interested in that, please.

I will be participating in a prayer service on October 10 for National Coming Out Day – it’s geared for members of the LGBT community and will be held at Hanover Presbyterian church.

Thanks and Blessings to all who make Christ Church the BEST church I know!
