| Dear , |
of the challenges and blessings of "the wind blows where it will" is
that people come into our lives and leave our lives. This week we give
thanks for Lee Pischel who was such a gift to the Emmanuel community.
She has left this world, but will never leave our hearts!
Fr. Rob & Mo. Lyn
One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism
And ONE Service!!!
9am, this Sunday, March 30
Sunday (being a fifth Sunday of the month) we will have a single
service at 9am, bless the Arbor and then have a delicious BBQ and chance
to hang out together
We could use some side dishes, so if you feel so moved, bring a culinary contribution!
It is always so fun to be able to be together and share stories and love. Come join the party!
Wine and Cheese
and the Wind in the Trees
The focus of the program will be a deeper anointing of the Holy Spirit.
Each week's gathering will begin with a wine and cheese tasting and
will include a teaching by Fr. Rob and Mo. Lyn, a witness from someone
in our Emmanuel community, followed by some worship and prayer.
a powerful time last Thursday!!! OMG... literally! God's Holy Spirit
was moving big time. After another splendid smorgasbord of
treats by Bernice, Lorra & Gordon, and sharing by Fr. Rob and Mo.
Lyn, we had an amazing witness by Kelli Edwards and some beautiful time

Thanksgiving for the life of
was an amazing person. Getting her pilot's certificate in her 50s,
running the SAGE group for years, caring for her husband Carl, and being
a source of inspiration and support for so many. A long time member of
Emmanuel, she was on almost every conceivable area of service in the
church. Even when her health was failing, she faithfully attended the
8:15 service. Her desire to be with her brothers and sisters at Emmanuel
and to receive the strength of the sacrament was incredibly powerful
soon as I meet with her son Bill and stepson Steve I will let you know
when we will hold a memorial service to celebrate her life and the
promise of the resurrection that she so faithfully proclaimed.
With gratitude for her,
May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
Photo of the Week
so proud of our own Kathy Eppick who had this watercolor entitled
"Gifts of the Spirit" included in an international Anglican conference.
She had created this during an Emmanuel Women's Retreat a number of
years ago. Here is what the curator had to say about the exhibit:
exhibition came into being when The Society of the Companions of the
Holy Cross and The Center for Anglican Communion Studies at Virginia
Theological Seminary asked Episcopal Church & Visual Arts (ECVA)
to put out a call for works capturing women's prayer as part of a
conference called Anglican Women at Prayer: Weaving our Bonds of
Affection. The conference, March 14-16, 2014, draws together women from
around the Anglican Communion to share their prayer experiences-what
they pray for, and how they pray. This conference would be incomplete
without the wordless relationship with the Divine captured in color,
pen, and brushstroke. All the art here will be projected as part of the
conference. We invite you to join us in prayer as you enter this
Thursday nights at 7pm
in the SHACK room.
