Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with Praise! Give thanks to God and bless God's name. Psalm 100:4

The Twenty-Fourth Sunday After Pentecost, November 8th, 2015

Last Sunday, the Feast of All Saints’, the Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry was enthroned as the 27th Primate and Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church in Washington National Cathedral (the Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul). Bishop Curry, the former bishop of North Carolina, succeeds Katharine Jefferts Shori as Primate of the American Church. The 155 bishops of the Episcopal Church were in attendance, along with many ecumenical guests. You may read more here.

Locally, we blessed the Acolyte plaque in honor of Parish Verger and mentor James L. Schlanser, enjoyed a handsome Altar of Memory in the Narthex, and welcomed Luna Doke and James David Yundt into Christ’s Holy Catholic Church through the Sacrament of Holy Baptism. A glad day, fueled by that extra-hour of daylight savings time sleep…and the fulsome service concluded at 11:14am!

From Tennessee comes happy word of the birth of Catherine Georgia to Ren and Jim Fakonas on October 23! Congrats to these relocated dear ones!

Christ be in you,
GFW+
