“The Balm of Gilead”

The Season of Creation
International Day of Peace

“The Deed of Purchase”
Jeremiah 32:1-3a, 6-16; I Timothy 6:6-19; Luke 16:19-31
We are the deed, the land, death, life, agrarian, prize, protect for community. We see the need for space, the place we live and value. We find human agency, God’s mission. We hear the word come to Jeremiah, buy my field at Anathoth for the right of redemption. We hear the call to be generous, ready to share, active courage. Choose true life, in challenge and hope. Shape humanity in the world. Recall there was Abraham and Lazarus, reversals of fortune then and now; find balance in new hope.

Please contact Rev Dr John Joseph Mastandrea at for link, meeting id and passcode.

Friday Afternoons @ the Manor
Learn how to make unique greeting cards in 3 hours, using natural materials. During the Season of Creation, “the church” tries to become more aware of ways we don’t live “in the environment”, we ARE the environment.  One of the ways we can do this is by becoming more observant of ways the structures of “life” we can see in “Creation” are deeply related to ways in which our bodies are structured as creatures.  For instance, to support life, the veins of trees absorb light, air, water and earth, as do ours. When we create art with pieces of “nature”, we “look” closely at their intricate structure, and “see” what we have been blind to.

September 23, 1:00 pm - Card Making with The Rev. Jennifer Palin, RSVP by September 19, Cost $15
Please contact Rev Dr John Joseph Mastandrea at for link, meeting id and passcode.
