What's Wrong with Economic Inequality? 
Why you should care about growing disparities of income and wealth?

Come join the St. Dunstan's Economic Justice Working Group for a timely and lively conversation on a topic that is front and center in today's political debates - what to do about economic inequality? We will discuss what our Christian faith says about economic inequality; how we experience it in our own lives; how and why it has worsened and what will happen if current trends continue, including how it might affect our children and grandchildren. We've put together two resolutions for the January Diocesan convention on what we can do individually, as a parish, in the diocese, and as a country to address the problem. You can find the resolutions and a wealth of supporting material on this page of our website and scroll down to Sunday Formation.  Please come and share this important conversation.
 
October 18Mr. Paul Cooney, Canon to the Ordinary for the Diocese of Washington will be our featured speaker and preacher to kick off our annual giving campaign.
 
October 25: Martha's Table - Intergenerational Formation through Service. On the last Sunday of each month our formation will be intergenerational and experiential as we gather to make sandwiches for the hungry people in our community. Is there another family or individual who would like to learn the ropes from the Johnson's? Either be in contact with Sue or Paul Johnson.

All Saint's Remberances

Posted 6:38 PM by

 

 
 
Remembrances for All Saints' Sunday, November 1.

The feasts of All Saint's celebrates the communion of saints in all times and places - on earth and in heaven.  As you receive the bread and wine of the Eucharist, rest in the knowledge that you remain connected in love with all who have died.  I find much comfort in that. 

On this day we remember by name all those dear departed whose names you submit to the church office beforehand. Please use the paper slips or the online form to submit your loved ones for remembrance.  
 
All Saints is also a day for baptisms into the Church, which is the visible community of saints on earth.  With great joy, we shall baptize children into this communion of saints at 9 a.m. on November 1, and at 10:45 a.m. on November 8

Creation Season

Posted 5:00 PM by

 

 
Creation Season: Plant, Nurture, Harvest, Celebrate!

This Sunday begins a month - long celebration of God's gifts of creation. This is a season to focus on God as creator, on the beauty of creation, and our responsibility to care for all creation.  The theme of the harvest exemplifies creation and our role in it. We sow seeds, nurture the plants, harvest the bounty, and celebrate God's abundance through sharing. In the liturgy we hear readings both from scripture and from other sources selected for their attention to creation. The cross, candlesticks and bookstand all are handcrafted from wood. We use earthenware pottery on the altar.  All are reminders of the gifts of God's creation.
 
St. Dunstan's worship group takes great care in designing this season to enrich our worship. A changing display on the baptismal font will show the bounty of the earth and the goodness of God throughout October. We hope you enjoy this year's Creation Season.

Forming faith in non-traditional ways ...
Caring for those who depend on us!
PET BLESSING - Sunday, October 4 during the 9:00 Service! On this feast of St. Francis we will bless animals and stuffed critters as well. Please be sure that they are properly leashed or caged for their comfort and safety. 
 
We will have a special presentation during our formation time in the parish hall, complete with special treats for our furry friends. Allan Cohen, Chair of the Board of Directors  for MCPAW will give a special presentation to our community. He is a founding member of the organization and has a great love for the well-being of animals in our county. MCPAW serves as a partner to the Mont. Co. Animal Services & Adoption Center. They work to identify and correct the causes that make shelters necessary and provide programs and advocate for change so that animals are cared for properly. 
 
If you have any old towels or blankets or wish to send treats to the dogs and cats, 
please bring these on Sunday morning!
