|PREACHER REV’D KATE SPELMAN|
While we worship online, we have the opportunity to hear from preachers who live far from Durham. This Sunday, we will hear from Kate Spelman, and Episcopal priest in the Diocese of Chicago. After a decade of congregational ministry, she recently returned to the secular world where she creates programming and resources for older LGBTQ+ adults and caregivers.
|WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE?|
St. Luke’s leadership is looking towards fall and starting to plan for more small group events either in person or online. Let Helen know what you would be interested in helping with or attending!
JULY BOOK STUDY: UPROOTING RACISM
We encourage you to read the book “Uprooting Racism: How White People Can Work for Racial Justice” by Paul Kivel and then join a discussion group by Zoom on Monday, July 27 from 7:00-8:30. The book is available using Durham Library’s Hoopla app, or by using your Nook, Kindle or free Kindle app.
After each chapter, answer: 1) What did I learn/what was new to me? 2) What do I want to know, 3) How am I feeling about what I read? Contact Eileen Morgan for more information, and to let her know you plan to read/attend.
|How Can I Help?|
|GOOD NEWS COMMUNITY GARDEN|
Mary Beth Berkley is coordinating discussions between St. Luke’s, St. Titus, and El Buen Pastor about creating a Good News community garden to grow food and deepen relationships among the congregations. We’re looking for folks interested in vegetable gardening and/or building community! Want to know more or get involved? Contact Mary Beth.
TEMPORARY VESTRY CLERK NEEDED
Please contact Helen if you would be willing to be Clerk of the Vestry for the second half of 2020. Duties include taking minutes at all vestry meetings, Parish Council, and Parish-wide meetings; edit and distribute minutes, and work with the Parish Administrator to file appropriately. Ability to take notes quickly, comfort with Word, Google Docs and Zoom required.
KEEP CLERGY IN THE LOOP
Please make sure to keep the clergy in the loop if there are any needs or concerns you have or you know about. You can e-mail Helen at any time.
REMEMBER, Your clergy will not send you e-mail or texts messages asking for gift cards or financial help. Be suspicious of anything that comes outside of these announcements. Do not respond to the request, but call the clergy person or create a separate e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to verify.
