The News from
St. Dunstan's
October 10, 2020
Sunday Worship this Week
Due to the forecasted inclement weather tomorrow
(Sunday, October 11, 2020),
we will worship via Zoom and Facebook Live,
rather than in person.
The service will begin with prelude music at 10:00 a.m.,
as usual.
If you would like to participate in the service via Zoom, please click on this link (Meeting ID: 826 4027 2649), which will go live at 9:50 a.m. For security purposes you will be taken first to a "waiting room" until you can be admitted. In order to ensure that everyone is able to hear and participate in the liturgy, please remember to mute your microphone once the service begins. The service also will be broadcast live on the St. Dunstan's Facebook page  beginning at 10:00 a.m., and it will be sent out later in the day via email.
This week's bulletin may be accessed here.
As has become our custom, our Minister of Music, Joey Arkfeld, will sing the hymns for us. If you would like to join him from home (muted!), the sheet music for tomorrow's hymns is available at the links below:
Opening Hymn: "Gather Us In"
Communion Hymn: "For Everyone Born"
Immediately following worship, please stay online for Coffee Hour!
Election Day Prayer Presence
As Election Day draws near, national anxiety is understandably rising, given all that we've been through this year and the issues before us as a people.
One antidote to anxiety is prayer. Bishop Mariann is inviting congregations to take part in an EDOW effort to be a prayerful presence at polling stations within our diocesan bounds on Tuesday, November 3.
The Diocese has asked each parish to form a small group to pray quietly for our democracy and all those exercising their right to vote at the polling station(s) of their choice, at a time of their choosing.
Ray Donnelly is coordinating St. Dunstan's Prayer Delegation for Election Day. If you would like to join him, along with the Rector and other members of this parish, please reach out to Ray directly via email. Each participant will be asked to e-sign a covenant, committing to be a peaceful, non-partisan presence.
More information about this peaceful witness will be available as Election Day grows closer. In the meantime, if you feel so moved to pray for this year's election, we suggest this Collect from the Book of Common Prayer:
Almighty God, to whom we must account for all our powers and privileges: Guide the people of the United States in the election of officials and representatives; that, by faithful administration
and wise laws, the rights of all may be protected
and our nation be enabled to fulfill your purposes;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
~"For an Election," BCP, p. 822
