Dear Friends
 
Kate and I are finally working on our last move and very busy right now. So here are a couple of reminders.
 
  • Ash Wednesday is coming up next week. Let us know if you will be joining us on Zoom. We want to make sure we get ashes to you. We will also gather in person at St. Bart's at 7PM.
 
  • During Lent we will be gathering in the evening to pray Compline together. These are Night Prayers, and I’ve developed a version that combines elements from the rite found in The Book of Common Prayer and the New Zealand Prayer Book. This will be done on Zoom at 8:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. I have the service in Power Point presentations that can be shared over Zoom. I will be in attendance, and am happy to lead, AND I’d love for any of you to volunteer to lead.
 
  • On Wednesday evenings at 6:30, I’d like us to read Bible Babel: Making Sense of the Most Talked About Book of All Time by Kristen Swenson. It is a smart and accessible read that is intended for laypeople by an academic who loves scripture and the church. The book is available in paperback and all electronic reader applications at all major booksellers.
