THIS THURS. @ 6-7:30pm / Worship
Rev. Steph is in Ecuador, serving as Chaplain to the Episcopal House of Bishops. Isaac is taking a much-needed vacation in New Orleans. So please welcome Rev. Cameron Partridge, Episcopal Chaplain at Boston University, to the table. Reflection leader Amy Durfee West breaks open the Gospel of Matthew 20: 1-16
, and the Action Team leads the spiritual practice: linking our prayer with our action.
THIS THURS. AFTER WORSHIP / Fajitas 'n Ritas
We share good, cheap food and community just around the corner from church. It's a Crossing institution, and if it's your first time, we subsidize with $5 (you'd be amazed what you can get for that much).
THIS SAT. / Occupy Wall Street with Prayer
Join the group heading to NYC this weekend to stand up against corporate powers and greed and witness to a whole different set of values. The occupation takes place Sept. 17, and many of us will be there as a prayerful presence:
1. Check out the whole campaign here.
2. Lead song, prayer and vigils as a chaplain to protesters: protestchaplains.blogspot.com or contact Marisa at email@example.com.
