Dear friends: thanks to all of you who helped make our GBAM Strawberry Shortcake fund-raiser for the Interfaith Fuel Fund a great success. After expenses we netted about $1,350.
Thanks to those of you who picked the strawberries; hulled, sliced, and froze the berries; helped staff the booth; and sold the berries. And a special thank you to those who provided support to this Outreach Event by eating the shortcake!
This past week has also been a challenging time for our parish, as we have an unexpected death of a parishioner, deaths in several parishioners’ extended families, and two parishioners who are very seriously ill with life-threatening illnesses. They say that God never gives us more than we can handle. May God give us the grace and strength to continue on as a church family as we care for each other, and continue the process of discerning a new rector for our church community.
I am on vacation for about 12 days, visiting my sons and family, including and my one and only 3 yo granddaughter, Chloe, in Albuquerque. See you on or about July 30th.
Peace and blessings to all of you, my friends and family. Tom
