A Prayer for the Discernment in the search for a new bishop in our diocese
God of Grace, we give you thanks for all of the blessings of our common life and ministries as the Episcopal Diocese of Maine, and for our leaders who are guiding us through this season of change. Grant to the Discernment and Transition Committees open hearts, minds, and spirits as they receive the Holy Spirit’s gifts of faith, hope, and love to aid their work. We ask also that you send courage and vision to our next bishop of Maine as she or he discerns your call. In Christ’s name we pray, Amen
We have new chairs and tables for both downstairs and in the meeting room. Though more tables are on their way to replace the large ones in the Undercroft.
Along the highways of our lives there dwell secret places of refuge. It is for us to find them, explore them, and to discover the untold wonder awaiting us.
It is in the present day, among us and around us; the mystery of awe and the glory of love. When we see someone touched by it, we, too, are illumined.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU
Thanks to Jacob Gerritsen who toke the drone shot parish picture, and to all who coked, baked, set-up, cleaned and made the cook out a grand success and much fun!
The mission of this parish has been summed up in the words of Jesus when he said, “We are to love the Lord, our God, with all our heart, and with all our soul, and with all our mind, and with all our strength; and our neighbor as ourselves.”
On Sunday, September 30th, we hosted our annual blessing of the animals. Here Bean is being blessed.
