Hello faith family! See the Carpenter’s Helper newsletter for the week of May 24, 2020. In it you will find the most recent message from our Bishop on reopening church buildings. Next week the Carpenter’s Helper newsletter will feature some of our congregations academic achievements. I’d also like to add a section featuring all of the educators – they certainly have had a year like no other, and we should celebrate their service. Many have already sent in names and a few pictures of graduates. Please continue to send them in, and also help me collect a list of educators. Please let me know if you have suggestions for what should be in our Helper. The Diocese of Delaware weekly newsletter called The Net, is always interesting, but I especially enjoyed this week (children’s worship, the fashions Jesus may have worn, and much more).
I have only received a handful of #SpiritSelfies. Please send them in ASAP. I’m willing to come and snap the selfie (from 10′ away with a mask) if you’d like. I’d welcome the excuse for a quick visit!
Two dates to add to your calendars: Deacon Cecily will be offering Compline every Thursday, beginning June 4, 2020 at 7 p.m. I will be sending info about a Zoom link and leaflet for this service early next week. And, on Sunday, June 7, 2020, we will join with most other churches in the diocese to “attend” the Bishop’s livestream service. So, there will not be the usual 9 a.m. worship service at St. Thomas’s. Details about time and how to connect to the Bishop’s service will follow shortly.
If there are any groups who would like to meet virtually, know that I’m here to help. I have a Zoom account I’m happy to share, but also would be interested in exploring Facebook Rooms or any other meeting tool.
Please send in those graduate and educator names and pics, and I’ll see you Sunday on YouTube!
