Dear parishioners and friends of St. Dunstan's,
The weather may have been gloomy this morning, but our first celebration of Holy Eucharist since March was both moving and joyful! It was wonderful to share the service with so many of you, both in person and via live-streaming. Thank you, once again, to The Joseph Arkfeld Trio (Joey Arkfeld, Julian Berkowitz, and Landon Paddock) for the lively jazz music, as well as to Dr. Robin Reed, our Senior Seminarian Intern, for today's homily about our willingness to change.
If you weren't able to join us in person or on Facebook this morning the recording may be found here: Sunday Worship from St Dunstan's: September 27, 2020 (The Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost)The bulletin for today's worship is available here.
Please stay tuned for more information about in-person worship at St. Dunstan's. I look forward to seeing you soon - either in person or online!
Peace and love,
