A Thursday Reflective Moment from Fr. Joe
October 16, 2014
Last Sunday, many of you were addressed about the “state” of our parish. While numbers may never completely capture the health and status of a parish, neither can they be ignored. They do not lie. So where do we go from here?
Each Thursday, I will be sending a brief thought for you to reflect upon as we live into our “Strong By 17” project. How we must begin: With hope and knowing we’ve been called to do this.
As many of you heard (and saw) on Sunday, October 5, Francis of Assisi was pushed by an inner voice: “Rebuild My Church” is what he was told to do. This may have begun by meaning physical repair of the chapel structure at San Damiano, but God was also pushing him to be an instrument of growth and reform for His entire Church. Bring the love of God to all. Take care of those who lack what we have. Be at peace with all creation since everything is a gift from the Lord. You become rich when you give to others. You become strong when you serve others.
And now in 2014 this is what the Lord is calling us, this parish, to do. Strong by 17.
Calling all local vampires, super heroes, witches and princesses! Festivities start at South Salem Presbyterian Church with trunk’n’treat, safety minute with a Lewisboro police officer and Halloween craft and game activities. Children will then proceed parade-style down Spring Street with the Lewisboro police officer to St. John’s for Disney Halloween cartoons and movies under the stars! Hamburgers and hot dogs will be served.
This year’s John Lewis Day Celebration was a great success despite the rain! St. Paul’s Chapel was filled with music performed by many different musicians including the Antioch Baptist Church Choir.
