Time Capsule Found

- 12/23/12

During work with the cornerstone construction of the new entrance to the church, workers discovered a time capsule placed in it when the church was built in 1963.  It was opened after the liturgy in the presence of the congregation.  In it was found a letter from Fr. Dimitri Ermakov, church membership roster, new church plans and information, Forerunner pamphlets, and a copy of "The Light of Orthodoxy", a diocese newspaper.  It was exciting to be a part of this and catch a glimpse of the past.

Women's Bible Study Group

Our Women's Bible Study Group has selected "Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World" which is available at Barnes & Noble ($10.98 paperback, $9.99 Nook).

...a short synopsis
The life of a woman today isn’t really all that different from that of Mary and Martha in the New Testament. Like Mary, you long to set at the Lord’s feet...but the daily demands of a busy world just won’t leave you alone. Like Martha, you love Jesus and really want to serve him...yet you struggle with weariness, resentment, and feelings of inadequacy.

Then comes Jesus, into the midst of your busy life, to extend the same invitation he issued long ago to the two sisters from Bethany. Tenderly, he invites you to choose ’’the better part’’--a joyful life of intimacy with Him that flows naturally into loving service.

With her fresh approach to the familiar Bible story, Joanna Weaver shows how all of us--Marys and Marthas alike--can draw closer to our Lord: deepening our devotion, strengthening our service, and doing both with less stress and greater joy. Paperback, 241 pages.

If you are interested in joining in the discussion or just reading and listening, please join us on the folowing Sundays after Liturgy. Grab a cup of coffee at coffee hour and bring it on over to the parish house.  The schedule, til January at least, is: 9/9, 10/14, 11/18, 12/9, and 1/14.
