 Blessing of the Animals

Blessing of the AnimalsAs we approach October 4, the feast day of St. Francis, we will begin celebrating his love for all creation by asking God's blessings upon our pets. All are welcome! We've had dogs, cats, hamsters, hermit crabs, snakes, bunnies, and a variety of other critters. What a beautiful way to give thanks for our animal companions and the loving role they play in our lives.


Blessings of the animals will be on Saturday, September 29th at 5pm. Feel free to invite your friends!


Walk and Be Well

 Walk and Be Well Program Begins October 1


[This is an opportunity that is being given to clergy who have participated in CREDO--a clergy renewal program, but we wanted to extend the opportunity to you! ~ Fr. Rob]

Jesus spent much of his ministry walking. From town to town across Galilee, Samaria and Judea, he walked and talked, in the company of his disciples, his followers and God.

CREDO's Walk and Be Well  offers a way to follow Jesus both in words and action, with a walking program attuned to both body and soul. For four weeks beginning October 1, CREDO will provide daily Walk and Be Well reflections in both text and audio that can motivate, encourage and educate you on the benefits of walking and help you commit to 28 days devoted to better wellness. You'll begin your daily walk with a reflection from one of three CREDO writers and faculty members: Jackie Cameron,  Elizabeth Moosbrugger or Bill Watson. Each writer starts and finishes his or her reflection with the same scriptural anchors, but along the way approaches walking from a unique perspective. The entire series weaves together a very broad and holistic look at health and wellness.

Reflections can be downloaded as podcasts, streamed from the CREDO website and printed as PDFs; use them while walking solely or share them with your walking partner or group. And if you would like to receive your daily reflection by email, just sign up and we will send it to you in the early morning.
Walk and Be Well begins on September 30, with an introduction from Jackie Cameron. October 1 begins the walking days, which continue through October 28.  The distance and pace is up to you. 


 Welcome of the Week

Kathy Palmer  

Financial Blessing!


For the next few weeks we will be celebrating several new ministry leaders who are helping at Emmanuel. This week we want to give thanks for Kathy Palmer who is now working as Bookkeeper as Debi Andreff takes on a new adventure as Grandmother! Both Kathy's banking experience and her buoyant humor are a wonderful contribution to Emmanuel's financial management.
