2013 Christmas Eve Liturgy
BC School of Theology and Ministry (STM),Â 9 Lake Street Brighton, MA 02135
5 pm, December 24th, 2013
HospitalityÂ isÂ pot luck as we have done in the past, in the lounge on the 2nd floor.
Erick is rejigging our website and needs our help.
At the Annual Meeting we talked about putting the Â Hospitality/Liturgy calendar on a calendar page that Bob/Peggy would have access to so that any changes would go through them & be there for all to check, anytime.
Check the page now to see upcoming events/liturgies.
Iâ€™d also like to suggest a Resources page.
This could list the music we have, also a whatâ€™s where of the resources that scattered when we left Odd Fellows.
We, for instance, have a hanger full of colorful stoles, which could be useful for summer liturgies.
We could post books, spiritual or otherwise, that we would like to pass on.
We could also list our human resources (no emails or phones)â€”2013-14 officers, the better to know who to contact.
FYI I still have the key until I pass it on to Dotti on Sept. 9.
PLEASE ADD YOUR IDEAS/COMMENTS
Our next liturgy is April 21 at Faber House,
And in May we Meet three times, for retreat May 11-12 in Nahant as well as May 5
and May 19 at Faber House. The 19th will be our annual lunch meeting.
Gisela has announced that she will the walking in John’s memory in the Hunger March.
All support appreciated.
Many thanks for your prayers. Â My septoplasty surgery went well yesterday. Now it’s the recuperation stage. Hope to make the liturgy Sunday. Take care~
Love and peace,
In a departure from our current nasty weather pattern, Tuesday was a great driving day. Â Eight POP members (2 cars) drove to New Canaan, Ct. for the beautiful celebration of the life of John Sachs, Randy’s father. We came away with a sense of an amazingly loving and generous man and the understanding that — through Randy — we are privileged to share in his legacy.
Looks like, weather permitting, we will finally be able to meet for liturgy in Brighton this Sunday…
For the second Sunday in a row, our Sunday service at Faber House has been canceled!
Our next liturgy in Brighton is set for Sunday March 3, weather permitting.
In the meantime Gisela will be hosting an evening of Lenten reflection with Fidel at her home, Friday, March 1, 7:30PM.
On Tuesday several cars will also be heading to Connecticut for the funeral of Randy’s father, John Sachs. Please email me if you would like a ride.
At our Feb. 3rd liturgy at the Faber House chapel, we discussed various options for our traditional weekly Lenten liturgies, should Randy need to Connecticut, given his father’s health.
As yet I don’t have an update but, when I do, I will post it here and invite discussion.
Erick is on the case, working to make thisÂ websiteÂ Â a user-friendly forum and info source.
