All Saints will worship Sunday, July 30 at 10 am.  Euntaek Kim, from the Open Door Church, is the guest musician.

 

The coffee hour is POTLUCK.  You may sign up to host a coffee hour by contacting Robin.

 

The Parish Life Committee will meet in my office after worship on Sunday, August 13 to make plans for Homecoming Sunday, which is September 17.

 

Lynne and I will lead a Quiet Day at All Saints on Saturday, August 5 from 9:30 am – 1:30 pm.  The theme is the Transfiguration story, Luke 9:28-36, in which Jesus takes the disciples Peter, John, and James, to the top of a mountain to pray.  There, the disciples saw Jesus “transfigured,” that is, they saw “the appearance of Jesus’ face changed and his clothes became dazzling white.”  Then they heard a voice that said, “This is my Son, my Chosen, listen to him!”  Find out more about this story at the Quiet Day.  Participate in a guided meditation, time for quiet reflection, and an art project.  Conclude the day with a festive lunch with wine.  Please contact Robin atparishadministrator@allsaintsleonia.com to RSVP.  A flyer is also attached to this message.  There is a suggested donation of $10 which may be made at the Quiet Day.

 

August 1 is the deadline for reserving your place at the Adult Education Retreat on September 22-24 at Holy Cross Monastery in West Park, NY.  Lynne and I will lead the retreat which is entitled, “Rediscovering Grace, Reflections on the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation.”  The cost is $220 for the retreat, room, and meals.  You may bring or mail your check to All Saints, however, please make your check payable to “Church of the Atonement.”  A retreat flyer is attached to this message.

 

Now is the time to solicit ads for the “A Fair in the Fall” ad journal as well as tricky-tray items.  A flyer for this purpose is attached to this message.

 

Please remember that All Saints worships each Sunday, 52 weeks a year, at 10 am.  Please include worship in your summer weekend plans.  Please note that I will be away following the August 6 service.  Terri Donati will lead Morning Prayer on August 13, Bill McColl will lead Morning Prayer on August 20, and the Rev’d Young Yoon will be the celebrant and preacher on August 27.
