During the night Paul had a vision: there stood a man of Macedonia pleading with him and saying,
"Come over to Macedonia and help us." Acts 16:9
O God, who hast prepared for those who love thee such good things
as pass man's understanding: Pour into our hearts such love towards thee,
that we, loving thee in all things and above all things,
may obtain thy promises, which exceed all that we can desire;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee
and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
BCP p. 174.
Mental Health Outreach and Safety Concerns
This Sunday, following both services, Sonja Miller will speak in a planned format with the congregation in the Parish Hall during coffee hour, in order to help put people at ease and to answer questions.
This is Sonja's field of expertise. She will discuss our county crisis system and how it works for mental health so that we can make appropriate and helpful responses in order to protect everyone's safety and well-being.
Mother Laura

Just a reminder that Sunday, May 8th, is Mother's Day!
Bring your daughters, mothers and grandmothers to church!

We are exploring how to become a Believe Out Loud Congregation. Many un-churched LGBT people in our community are spiritually searching. They are looking for a faith community where they will be welcomed and affirmed as beloved children of God. Charlene McCreight is our Diocesan workshop leader for Believe Out Loud congregations and will be visiting us soon.

Come Celebrate Fourth Sundays!!
And maybe join the band?

All Saints’ is blessed with talented, committed volunteers who gather to make music every Sunday and at mid-week or Sunday rehearsals. On the fourth Sunday of every month—Youth Sunday—parents and children sing together at the 10:15 service in the Family Choir, under the leadership of Belinda Nissen, with accompanist Jerry Meter.
As a bonus, the service includes accompaniment and musical offerings by the Fourth Sunday Ensemble, volunteer instrumentalists who play woodwinds, brass, strings, and guitar. Come enjoy and sing with us and raise a joyful shout in harmony with the Family Choir and Instrumental Ensemble!!
Do you or members of your family sing? Why not add your voices? For more information about Family Choir, please contact Belinda Nissen through the parish office.
Do you play an instrument? Would you like to share your talent with other volunteers to enrich our worship at these special services? Please contact Jim Denman through the parish office, or at the parish music address:
Thanks for reading—we hope to hear from you!

Prayer for the Earth
I have come to terms with the future.
From this day onward I will walk easy on the earth.
Plant trees. Kill no living things.
Live in harmony with all creatures.
I will restore the earth where I am.
Use no more of its resources than I need.
And listen, listen to what it is telling me.
