Psalm 78:1-4, 12-16
Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are going into the kingdom of God ahead of you. For John came to you in the way of righteousness and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes believed him; and even after you saw it, you did not change your minds and believe him.
Quote of the week:
I suspect that were kinship our goal, we would no longer be promoting justice—we would be celebrating it. —Gregory Boyle
Brothers and Sisters,
This weekend the ECMN will gather! It is the time of the work of the larger ECMN I invite you to join via facebook or the ECMN website.
Here are the updates for this week:
Sunday Worship— No in person worship this Sunday! —This is the weekend of the ECMN Convention. Bishop Loya is asking that all the ECMN tune in for the convention Eucharist at 10:00 am via the Facebook Live page of the ECMN. Below is the information on how to watch the Eucharist.
Sunday, September 27th, 10am
On Sunday at 10am, we’re asking everyone to join together on the ECMN facebook page or on Vimeo for corporate, ECMN-wide worship. Bishop Loya will preach and preside, and you’ll also see some faces from across the state! This livestream will begin 10 minutes ahead of time, so you can find the link, share it, and, if you’re watching it on Facebook, you can even invite others to watch it with you using the ‘start a watch party’ function!

St. Edwards has received a grant of $4000. The vestry and I have decided that we will use this money to help others in these trying times. The discretionary fund is available for emergency help for food, utilities etc. If you or someone you know needs assistance please have them reach out to me.
If you need a directory please contact the office at email@example.com
My prayers are with you always and know that I will keep you up to date as I have more information. I do miss you all and pray for the day when we all can gather together in person but know that even though we are not able to gather my heart is with you.
Peace in Christ,
Fr. Jason B. Lucas
