All Church Picnic
Sunday, August 30th, we will all gather at 10:00 a.m. on the lawn of our church for an outdoor Eucharist.  Parish picnic and games will follow!
NAMI Multnomah will be offering a 12-week training course at All Saints starting Wednesday from 6-8:30PM, September 2 and running through Nov. 18th. The course is called Family to Family and is designed for parents, siblings or adult children who have a family member living with a severe mental illness (depression, bi-polar, schizophrenia, anxiety disorders). The National  Institute of Health publishes that this includes 5.9% of all Americans. The National Alliance on Mental Illness(NAMI) is the primary non-profit organization assisting persons with mental health issues and their families. Lack of accurate information about mental illness within families often makes life worse for those affected.
To sign up for this class, call 503-501-2363, Space is limited. There is no charge for the course. If questions, you may also call Chuck Martin, who is on the NAMI Oregon Board.
Parish Directory Photo Shoot Opportunity!  
For the next several Sundays after the 8:00 service and the 10:15 service, Jerry Meter will have his camera ready by the side of our Pipe Organ to take photos for those parishioners who missed the first time we took pictures for our directory and for new families and parishioners who have joined our congregation since the directory photos were taken.  Check in with Jerry after the services if you need to have your picture taken.

Will a small rise in sea level affect people (even in the United States)?

A small rise in sea level will affect many people, even in the United States. The amount of sea level rise expected to occur as a result of climate change will increase the risk of coastal flooding for millions to hundreds of millions of people around the world, many of whom would have to permanently leave their homes.  Global sea level has risen approximately 9 inches, on average, in the last 140 years.  This has already put some coastal homes, beaches, roads, bridges, and wildlife at risk.  By the year 2100, sea level is expected to rise another 1.5 to 3 feet.  Rising seas will make coastal storms and the associated storm surges more frequent and destructive. For example, in New York City what is currently termed a once-in-a-century coastal flooding event could occur as frequently as once per decade.

Presiding Bishop-elect Michael Curry

Becoming the beloved community:

"I believe profoundly that Dr. King was right.  We were put here to create the beloved community; God is the same God and creator of all of us.  If we all come from the same source, I'm not a scientist...I'm just a preacher, but if we've got the same parental source then you're related to everybody.  We are brothers and sisters of each other.  The hard work is to figure out how we live as beloved community, as the human family of God and do that in practical and tangible ways."
Pat McCaughan,
Mark your calendars!  All Saints has partnered with Oregon Food Bank to participate in the Woodstock Gives Back: Day of Giving event, happening on September 13.  This is a unique and exciting event with over 30 businesses and organizations participating.  Think street fair with a charity promotion angle. 

The event will begin at 10 am and conclude at 6 pm.  At this time streets will not be closed.  High school students will be guiding and handing out maps. If you are interested in helping All Saints/Oregon Food Bank out with this event, we could sure use you!  Contact Laurie McDowell or Micky Keiter with your ideas, times available, and questions.  Thanks!
