Sunday with Fr. Tim

Dear Friends,

Fr. Tim will be with you all this Sunday, 11/11, as it's our partnership rotation Sunday. (I'll be at Church of Our Father). He'll celebrate both the 8am and 10am. Please join him also between the services, about 9am, for a cup of coffee and informal conversation about the scriptures for the day, as well as the gospel of Mark which we are about to depart from. Upon the advent of Advent, we'll be turning to the gospel of Luke (mostly anyway). 

Plus, the slate of candidates for the new Bishop of Maine has been announced, and I'm putting a small display in the undercroft with their pics and statements. There is more information online, but this is a good start in getting to know them. 

A happy weekend and blessed Sunday, 
Mother Kathleen+

Meditation on Tuesdays at 4:00 at St. John's. Please join us for 30 minutes of shared silence and "prayer of the heart," an ancient meditative practice of the Christian tradition. All are welcome!

If you are new to meditation, have questions or concerns, or would like more information, please contact Mother Kathleen.

 

Westside Food Pantry:

The Bar Harbor Congregational Church is again undertaking a Thanksgiving Food Basket Project.  The Westside Food Pantry is the coordinator for basket requests from the west side of MDI.  The Pantry will once again provide the meat for the approximately 125 baskets to be distributed on "this side."

This project always requires some extra effort on our part and a chance for others to volunteer in being part of this opportunity to put our caring into practice.  So, I want to announce two ways to help make this happen.

First, Thanksgiving Basket Pickup in Bar Harbor: Monday, November 19 at 12:30 PM.  We need larger vehicles (SUV's, vans, and trucks), as well as "box carriers" containing the food items for the individual households.  If you have such a vehicle, and/or can help load the boxes in Bar Harbor and unload them in SWH (at the fire station), please let me know.  Even if you don't have a vehicle, but will help load/unload, also let me know.  Simply, "reply" with your type of vehicle or offer to load to Dean Henry, westsidefoodpantry@gmail.com

Second, Thanksgiving Basket Distribution at SWH Fire Station, Tuesday, November 20, 9:30 AM to 12 Noon.  We will distribute the baskets to those who have registered on Tuesday.  This is a cheerful event of good holiday spirit with our neighbors.  If you can help all or part of the time, simply "reply" to the above address and let me know of your availability.

I hope that you will make this project a part of your celebration of "thanks giving" and share with our neighbors a spirit of caring and gratitude.


The next distribution will be Sunday, November 18th, 12 Noon to 1 PM, at the Harbor House.
 
The Westside Food Pantry will receive $1 for each Fight Hunger bag purchased at Hannaford's in Bar Harbor during November; and at Schnucks at 4500 West Lloyd Expressway in Evansville, IN during December.

How Are You Doing ?

Dearest,
You mean a lot to me and God has a reason for this because he has directed me to do this with you by helping the people in need. All other details will be communicated to you as soon as I receive your response, but note that this is a worthy venture and God will bless you in abundance. I want to give the sum of 10.5Million United States Dollars into the work of charity through you. You will get 20 percent for your effort.
Thanks and God bless you.
Best regards.

Sunday Reminder!

Hi everyone! 

A couple of friendly reminders: tomorrow, Sunday 11/4, is the start of our 8am quiet service which will run through Advent, our principal service with music will remain at 10am. Between the services, at about 9am, we will have a stewardship and ministry forum, which I hope will be informative and fun. Coffee should be available too.  

Also, daylight savings time ends tonight at 2am, so remember to turn your clocks back.  

Looking forward to our being together!

Rainy blessings, Mother Kathleen+
