Our Lord Jesus Christ be near thee
to defend thee,
within thee to refresh thee,
around thee to preserve thee,
before thee to guide thee,
behind thee to justify thee,
above thee to bless thee,
who liveth and reigneth with the Father and the Holy Ghost, God Forevermore.

Dear Rev. Truby, Mikki, Lucille & Friends,

Our family is so grateful for our re-connection before Mom died. It must have been "Divine Intervention" to stop in the day I visited the Mustard Seed and met Mikki.

We didn't know when Lucille and Mikki came to do Communion with Mom and to know how much she remembered. Once an Episcopalian always and Episcopalian for sure!

Again, we thank all of you for remembering our family.

Hello Everyone,
I recommend Godly Play training to each on e of you if you have the inclination. In the words of parishioners, Henry & Charlie Axon, "Mom, it is not fair that grown-ups do not get to do Godly Play." 
There is a training in Eugene in November and the Diocese will pay half the fee for up to ten people.
Internal Peace to you all.
Laura Axon
Veterans Day Work Party

We welcome your help on WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 11. We are having a work party in order to clean out the former youth room so that it can be re-purposed for regular use.  If there is ANYTHING in that room you would like to have, please remove it & take it to your regular storage space.  If you do not have storage space at the moment, please TAG it and put it against the wall on the hallway floor. 

Anything still in that room on November 11 will either go to the Mustard Seed, Goodwill or a dumpster.

Praying our Visions:
Story, Gender, and Icons of the Theotokos

Over the course of three Wednesdays, we will come face to face with four different depictions of Christ's mother, side by side with the hymns and poetry which shape how we 'read' these images.  This class will be a little bit theology, a little bit gender theory, a little bit story, and an inroad into ways of praying with the "visual metaphors" of the Christian tradition.  Taught by Dr. Maria Gwyn McDowell, a member of Trinity Cathedral and scholar of gender, ethics and Eastern Christian traditions.

"We need to tread gently on the Earth, for the Earth is our home and our mother. We inherit the Earth from our parents, and we borrow it from our children. If we hurt the Earth, we hurt ourselves."    
Chief Seattle
Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori:

I am deeply grateful...
The Episcopal Church has come a long way in the last 10 years.  We are no longer consumed by internal conflict over various social issues.  We are clearer about who we are – a multinational church, with congregations in 17 nations, worshipping in countless different languages, thriving in international, immigrant, and multicultural contexts everywhere, and discovering the abundant life that comes in turning outward to love the neighbors nearby and far away.  We are far more conscious about our vocation as partners in the mission of God to reconcile and heal the world, particularly shaped by the Five Anglican Marks of Mission.  We are holding our identity as Episcopal Christians a bit more confidently, even in the midst of our diversity.  We are also more willing to hold that identity lightly and gracefully in engaging other Christians and people of other religious traditions, searching for what we dream of in common – shalom, the Reign of God, a more just and peaceful world, with abundant life for all creation.
I am deeply grateful for what God has been up to in the midst of our journey together, and I look forward to seeing how this church of the middle way will continue to lead and partner as we travel the road home, into God’s fullest dream of abundant life for all.  I thank the people of this Church and beyond for your prayers over the last nine years – especially in recognition that we do this work together, never alone.  May God bless the next chapter of The Episcopal Church’s engagement in God’s mission, as we go together into Galilee!
