What a beautiful weekend! The Holy Spirit was given in abundance--both within the tent and in the camp. (See Numbers 11:26-30 and surrounding verses) I give thanks for an amazing time at both the Silent Retreat and during the Sunday services. Thanks be to God for the gracious gift of the Holy Spirit!

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

Ted Talk

Emmanuel vestry had a very helpful meeting with The Rev. Canon Joanna Satorius recently to prepare for this next chapter in Emmanuel's history. I've asked our Senior Warden, Ted Jones, to share a little about what we learned in the process. ~ Fr. Rob

What Comes Next? If you have felt like me, I would guess that you may have had a bit of anxiety or concern about what happens next in Emmanuel's "transition".  Perhaps some of us may have even been in a little denial;  realizing that the wonderful 33 year pastoral guidance of Fr. Rob is coming to an end on October 1. Here's the good news!  At Fr. Rob's request and Mo. Lyn's agreement and the Bishop's blessing, Mo. Lyn will be the interim priest while we, together, undertake this journey into the future.  And rest assured, the Holy Spirit, our Advocate, will be with us throughout. On May 27th your Vestry met with the Reverend Canon Joanna Satorius, who is the Canon for Formation and Transition Ministry.  She is a wonderful, knowledgeable person representing the Bishop and has guided many parishes through this process over the last 14 years. She offers the resources and best practices of the Diocese.  She will be at our side in all the steps along the way whenever needed. There are diocesan guidelines to follow in the process of discernment needed to help us to choose our new priest and our future.  I will outline the general procedure  Click here to read more


The Back Forty is Safely in Bottles
It took a lot of concentration as you can see. The job was completed in a little over 3 hours.
Thanks to the bottling crew: Howard Minkley, Charley Julian, Lynn Wagner, Loren Maxwell, Rich and Linda Bronzellino, Dave Dunlap, and Robert Jahncke who printed the labels.
We have 98 bottles of our very own wine from our very own vineyard - that is exciting. We hope you all will be joining us on Sunday for the Release Party and a taste of the wine and the opportunity to join the Vintner's Guild.
See you at 4:00 pm, under the Pergola, Sunday, June 11.
Blessings, Gordon and Lorra
