HOW THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH HANDLED THE 1918 FLU EPIDEMIC

 

The Spirit of Giving
 
It is time for "The Spirit of Giving" again. Church of the Resurrection has, for several years, been providing Christmas for low income families who participate with Hope Solutions (formerly CCIH).
 
If you would like to commit to provide a gift please contact me or the church and you will be given the wish list and instructions. If you would like to do something easier than buy a present we also need a $25 Safeway gift card for every member of the family. This program is bigger than providing a present for a child or a struggling parent. It is the power of a stranger. It informs a child that the world is good and trustworthy and it reminds the parent they are not alone in their effort. The deadline is December 4th but these opportunities go quickly.

Winter Nights
 
 
Winter is Coming! DONATE TO RESURRECTION;  just make sure to add a note in the transaction that it's for Winter Nights. You can also mail or drop off a check to the church with "Winter Nights" noted in the memo line. This year is potentially the most important year and yet the least fun because we are not able to interact with the guest which is always my favorite part. Thank you for your generosity.  
Which means that Winter Nights is also coming. This year the program is designed to keep everyone safe by eliminating contact between the parishioners and the guests. We will host 4 families between December 28th and January 25th. The advantage of a longer stay is the fewer moves for the families and the staff reduces the risk. Our church is fortunate to have enough space to give adequate social distancing for the families. The church will provide the ingredients for breakfast and lunch and a restaurant meal for dinner to be delivered by a parishioner or a professional meal delivery service. While this dramatically reduces the work involved in this effort it increases the expense. We are cooperating with several other organizations but our resources are needed as well. We will be able to again provide each guest with the socks and undergarments that we have historically provided. We will also be able to provide free haircuts as long as we act according to the current ordinances. If you know a licensed hair stylist who would like to improve someone's self esteem please contact me. If you would like to help arrange for meals or assist in the general organization contact me or the church office. If time is short there are many ways to get your money into the pot: you can donate through our PayPal, found on our

Monday Zoom Bible Study
 
Join us on Mondays at noon for an hour of conversation about the coming week's readings — bring your lunch if you like, and a readiness to dig in together. What leaves you scratching your head? What have you always wondered about? How do these stories connect with your life right now? We will probably gather more questions than answers, and leave with plenty to ponder until we hear the same lessons again six days later. You can find the Zoom link in the weekly Ministry News email.
