In Girls Scouts, one of the songs they sing has the lyrics: "Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold". Last Sunday felt like the best of both worlds, where we had new friends visit at Emmanuel and were blessed to see some familiar faces again. Check out the photo of the week for one of them!

With love in Jesus,
Fr. Rob & Mo. Lyn

Friday Night at the Movies

 
What do you get when you mix Mel Brooks and the Old West?  Why, 1974's "Blazing Saddles" of course!  Join us on Friday, September 22, at 6:30PM for this broad and brilliant Western spoof. Considered, for its time, a revolutionary satire of race relations, the movie also neatly skewers social and genre stereotypes.  Clever dialogue abounds, Oscar-nominated Madeline Kahn channels Marlene Dietrich, vulgarity is well-placed, and the "fourth wall" is definitively and repeatedly broken.  Add to that a pie fight and wild sight gags, and the fun is complete!  As always, admission and refreshment are free, and the company is stellar.  

 
 
 

Emmanuel Women's Retreat
October 13-15


Come join the women of Emmanuel at Verdugo Pines and learn from presentations by Episcopal Priest Karri Backer.

Radical Compassion:  Following the Spiritual Path of Jesus
 
Join us as we explore the invitation to love - to love God, ourselves, and others. 
While the Christian tradition has been good at teaching us that we should love, and developing theologies about love, we haven't been as good at teaching how to love when it is hard - when we are jealous, or angry, or are too emotionally tired to even consider moving into an area of love.  Or what to do when forgiveness seems slow in coming, and loving another who has hurt us seems impossible.  Through teachings, practices, and small group discussions we will explore one path toward compassion cultivation, and the healing that can come when we rest in God's compassion for us.


A priest in the Diocese of Los Angeles as well as a PhD candidate in Spiritual Formation, Karri Backer seeks to work with individuals and communities to engage in spaces of healing and transformation, primarily through practices of compassion.  She currently serves as the Interim Rector for St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church in Corona and previously served as the Director of Christian Formation at St. Andrew's in Fullerton.  Karri also works as a spiritual director and therapist, focusing on spiritually integrative psychotherapy.  Karri is scheduled to finish her dissertation in the winter of 2018 and looks forward to finding ways to use these practices in parish and diocesan work.  She lives in Claremont with her husband of 20 years, 15-year-old daughter, and three cats.
