Annual Parish Meeting - Jan 21, 2018

The annual Parish meeting is usually held in January to hold elections for Vestry and present the budget for the coming year. At this year’s meeting there were two vestry members being rotated off; Joyce (Fanny) Hively and Sandy Hill. As usual they served as the nominating Committee for the new members. The nominations were Mrs. Paula Marshall and Ms. Judy Johnson-Russell. They were elected by acclamation.

Loaves & FishesOur food distribution arm has received a grant from the Diocese of Dallas Foundation for the years 2011 - 2017.

On the third Wednesday of each month since 2012 Loaves and Fishes opens their doors to serve from 70-100 families.  The baskets include not only food from the East Texas Food Bank but also food from the local St. Wm. Laud parish. Food drives have been held which resulted in donations of oil, flour, canned good, sugar, cake mixes, and other items hard to find at the Food Bank. Pictured below is the line that begins forming well before the doors open. Upper right shows the food bags ready for distribution and right a close up of one of the bags. Thanks to all who donate food and money for this outreach program.

New Study Series - "The Apocryphal Jesus"

 

We began our new series for adult Christian Education at 6:00 PM on September 18th. It consists of 24 half-hour presentations by Dr. David Brakke, PhD. Dr Brakke is holder of the Joe R Engle Chair in the History of Christianity at The Ohio State University. It's a study developed by The Great Courses Entitled "The Apocryphal Jesus" and will cover the apocryphal writings of the New Testament era. These are writings which are attributed to many of the persons who most are familiar with in the story of Jesus as presented in the New Testament. They are not Holy Scripture, however they do present a fascinating window into the diversity of ancient Christianity and the endless inventiveness of the Christian imagination.

Each session consists of two 30 minute videos after which we take some time for discussion. (Note: We do not meet on those Mondays on which we hold our First Monday Pot Luck Suppers).
