Moving Forward: Reflections on the Parish Forum

Posted onSeptember 26, 2017 | by: Wes Gristy | 0 comments

If you happened to miss our Parish Forum on Wednesday, August 23, allow me to recap for you the high points of what was shared and discussed. The purpose of this forum was threefold: to inform the parish of the process by which we as a Vestry are moving forward in stewarding our growth; to call the church to make this pivotal season we share a matter of prayer; and to solicit the wisdom of the parish about the process and our priorities. ...Keep Reading

Reflections on the ACNA Assembly

Posted onJuly 31, 2017 | by: Wes Gristy | 0 comments

Yes, you’ve heard it correctly: All Saints was the largest church represented at the ACNA’s Provincial Assembly this past June! Absolutely incredible! But even more importantly, together we were exposed to and inspired by the missional impulse that is alive and well in the Anglican Communion worldwide. Anglicanism, at its best, strives to reach the world with the transforming love of Jesus Christ....Keep Reading

Parish Forum: One Year Later

Posted onJuly 31, 2017 | by: Wes Gristy | 0 comments

I find it hard to believe it’s been one year since we took the leap into two Sunday services. If you recall, this decision was the culmination of an eight-month-long process where we as a parish reconnected with our mission and rearticulated those aspects of our personality we wanted to stay alive to especially as our family continues to grow in number. As our Vestry facilitated this process, you played an integral role in helping us identify, articulate, and flesh out these defining aspects of our church....Keep Reading

40 Days with St. Ignatius

Posted onJune 7, 2017 | by: Fr. Ross Guthrie | 0 comments

This past Lenten season, I walked with a group of people through a 40- Day Stay-At-Home Retreat. We based our experience on St. Ignatius of Loyola's The Spiritual Exercises. Simply put, it is a series of meditations on the life of Jesus: his Incarnation, teaching, death, burial, resurrection, ascension, reign in glory, gift of the Holy Spirit, and bodily return....Keep Reading

Our Anglican Tradition

Posted onMay 3, 2017 | by: Wes Gristy | 0 comments

Whether you’re new to the Anglican way or you’re familiar with it, exploring the richness of our liturgy and tradition is invaluable to our shared life with God. The way we practice our script when we gather each Sunday, that is, the way we worship, deeply forms us to be a people who then live out that script in and for the world the rest of the week. That’s why it’s important for us to stop from time to time and give attention to what we’re doing when worship together....Keep Reading

Train Yourself to Walk with Christ

Posted onMarch 3, 2017 | by: Wes Gristy | 0 comments

We’ve sounded the call for Lent, we’ve made preparations for its coming, and now, with Ash Wednesday on March 1, it is finally upon us. The Apostle Paul compares the Christian life to a race, one that demands preparation and training. He writes these words to the Corinthians: “Athletes exercise self-control in all things; they do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable one. So I do not run aimlessly, nor do I box as though beating the air; but punish my body and enslave it, so that after proclaiming to others I myself should not be disqualified” (1 Cor 9:25...Keep Reading

Reflections on the Women's Tea

Posted onFebruary 1, 2017 | by: Tamarin Huelin | 0 comments

The women’s tea was a gift with many layers to me. Clearly, a great deal of preparation went into making it a gift for all who attended. The lovely table décor, the set apart location, the sandwiches, petit fours, coffee and tea, the great company of women, and the hilarious and thought- provoking skit offered by Nita and Terry provided just some of the outer layers....Keep Reading
