MORE THAN ENOUGH - Stewardship Reflection for October 9, 2022
Link:
  A Testimony of Stewardship
Questions for reflection:

  • What does it look like for our gifts to be used for the healing of the world?
  • What if stewardship included time, talent, treasure, and testimony?
  • How can this testimony be used for healing and repair?

Creation Season at St. Aidan’s
We are planning a number of offerings for Creation Season at St. Aidan’s to celebrate and live into this season of our church year.  The season will begin the Sunday after the Feast of St. Aidan and will include:

  • On Saturday October 15th, the St. Aidan’s community is again invited to join the Diamond Heights Median work day, which works to create sustainable and beautiful medians in our neighborhood.
Blessing of the Animals Photos

Diocese of California Bishop Search - A prayer for transition
The Standing Committee has asked congregations to pray for the new Bishop search process. We'll add this to our weekly petitions in the Prayers of the People, and from time to time we will pray this prayer they have provided for us during this period of transition in our diocese:
  •     Almighty God, giver of every good gift, by your grace you have called us into one fellowship of faith: Look graciously on the people of the Diocese of California during this time of transition.  May we be guided in heart and mind by your Holy Spirit to seek and welcome a faithful pastor who will care for your people and equip us to perform the work of the Church. Grant us, in all our doubts and uncertainties, the grace to ask what you would have us do. Save us from all false choices, that in your light we may see light, and on your path may not stumble; through Jesus Christ our Lord.   Amen.
Cameron is on Sabbatical
Cameron is on a long-planned sabbatical (August 1st – November 27th). While he is away, the Reverend Scot Sherman is serving in his stead, on a half-time basis.

This is a time of growth and opportunity for all of us-- for Cameron in this time of sabbatical, for St. Aidan’s as we make our way into to Vital + Thriving program, and for Scot as he walks more closely with St. Aidan’s on this journey.
