One Parish One Prisoner

Lytezia was released from prison on Saturday, July 7. Steve Deutermann, John Bays, Deb Hansen and Linda Snyder met with her in Kent, WA to support her as she begins her new life. Through One Parish One Prisoner, St. Andrew’s is partnering with Lytezia as she navigates all the things we take for granted: housing, clothing, driver’s license, and other day-to-day tasks. All these things require funds and her income won’t start for another month. Your gift of any amount will contribute to Lytezia getting a great start on her new life.

Meditative Walk at the Eden Valley TreeFarm

Saturday, Aug 3, 2014. 2pm to 4:30pm. 

Dick Van Calcar and George James are planning a Meditative Walk in the forest at Dick and Vicki Van Calcar’s Eden Valley Tree Farm.  All are welcome to join us.  The event will entail a walk of an hour or so into the forest and the sharing of insights into the spiritual significance of nature.

What to bring:(1) a brown bag lunch in a small back pack that is easy to carry.  (2) Shoes comfortable for a walk in the forest.(3) A poem, a verse, a reading or passage of scripture about the significance of nature to share with others. 

We will meet at the Eden Valley Tree Farm at 2:00 pm Aug 3. We will take a short walk into the forest and Dick will explain some of the history and features of the tree farm. At that point we will share poems, verses or meditations about nature.  We will walk further and then stop to share more meditations.  After that we will walk further and then break for our brown bag lunch.  There George will present a short reflection on the significance of nature in the Christian tradition.  We should be done by 4:30. You are welcome to stay longer if you wish.

Directions to the Eden Valley Free Farm, 2095 Eden Valley Road:  Take US 101 west to SR 112.  Turn left at Dan Kelly Road and proceed 3miles to where Dan Kelly Road joins Eden Valley Road.  The tree farm is just beyond that juncture on the left.  See you there!

Presiding Bishop-elect Sean Rowe

In his first sermon as presiding bishop-elect, the Rt. Rev. Sean Rowe said The Episcopal Church needs to be ready to tolerate uncertainty, make sacrifices and think differently about how the church should work so it can better share the Gospel of Jesus with a world that needs to hear it.
