O Lord, you have taught us that without love whatever we do is worth nothing; Send your Holy Spirit and pour into our hearts your greatest gift, which is love, the true bond of peace and of all virtue, without which whoever lives is accounted dead before you. Grant this for the sake of your only Son Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Book of Common Prayer, page 216

Third Sunday Outreach

Next Sunday September 16th is our monthly opportunity to reach out to the homeless and hungry with a gift of hard-boiled eggs. Please bring as many hard-boiled eggs as you can manage for the Feed My Sheep feeding program in down-town Miami, and leave them in the crate at the back of church – and thank you!

Stewardship Opportunities

During this exciting time of transition for All Souls’ Episcopal Church, we have numerous stewardship opportunities to give your talents and time to our church community. Stewardship is rooted in the belief that we all have inherited wonderful and unique gifts from God. This recognition of our giftedness leads to a life of gratitude and desire to share our gifts with our family, church and community. Please speak with a vestry member to learn more about the ways you can give your gifts to the All Souls’ congregation.

Rev Hans Gustafson 

Arrangements are being made for a memorial service which will be held here at All Soul’s in September. Date and time to be announced. Our prayers and thoughts go out to his family and loved ones.

Hospitality

If your surname begins with M-R, a reminder that there’s an opportunity for you to provide a much needed food item for our hospitality next Sunday September 16th. Please check with Joyce Foreman this morning and ask her what she needs for next Sunday. Items needed usually are a starch (pasta, potato, etc.), a meat, a salad, a vegetable, a dessert.
