At St. Edward the Confessor, we are community: where ALL are welcomed, ALL are fed, and ALL are loved, and we seek and serve Christ in each other by engaging with the community we live in through outreach.
This Sunday’s Readings| June 20, 2021, Fourth Sunday after Pentecost
He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm. He said to them, “Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?” And they were filled with great awe and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”

People can’t see what they can’t see. Their biases get in the way, surrounding them like a high wall, trapping them in ignorance, deception, and illusion. —Brian McLaren
Brothers and Sisters,
I ask your prayers this week for my family. I learned this week that Lance and I lost a good friend at the age of 41 as well as I learned yesterday my Uncle in Wisconsin also had died. I will be in Wisconsin this Monday and Tuesday attending his funeral services. If you need anything please contact me via my cell.
Sunday Worship—IN PERSON & VIRTUAL OUTDOOR SERVICE As of right now there is a the weather looks sunny for our service on Sunday. So we will plan to have service outside but if it is too warm we will move it indoors or in the tents. http://stedwards-mn.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/6-20-2021-Pentecost-4.pdf

Air Conditioner —Our A/C unit is not working and will need to have significant repairs. As of this moment the lowest bid is $14,000 to do a repair and $40,000 to replace. I am working on getting bids on how to get this fixed. As of this moment we will not have A/C until it has been fixed. If you would like to contribute to help cover the costs of the new A/C repairs or replacement please send your donation to the office and write A/C in the memo line. Thanks for your generosity.
Parking Lot Update —I have been meeting with contactors to get bids for our new parking lot. I hope to work with the vestry to select a contractor and schedule the work soon.
If you need a directory please contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org
May God’s blessing and peace be with you.
Peace in Christ,
Fr. Jason B. Lucas-Green
