From the Rector

Dear people of St Peter's,

     This missive comes to you from Camp Galilee at Lake  Tahoe.  Marietta & I are volunteering during Counselor Training week. It will be a great staff this summer!  With the exception of High School camp, week 6, the camp is completely full over the entire summer.  What a boon for Galilee, and what a tribute to the work of Stuart Campbell & the camp staff.  We're honored to be part of the ministry with our children & youth.

    Blessings in the blustery days of summer.  Happy Father's Day to all the dads.


Bare Bones Edition

   From the Editor:  This edition is "just the facts" because my computer has been down for the last several days and I haven't been able to build the newsletter as usual.  Sorry for its tardiness.  The additional content should return in the next edition, God willing!   -- Kim+

Your Name Matters!

Why wear a name tag at church???
  • Name tags encourage conversation
  • Name tags make guests feel more comfortable
  • Name tags promote an outward focus
  • Some folks aren't great at remembering names

If you've requested a name badge, it is waiting for you in the blue plastic bin near the Office door.

Annual Women's Retreat at Tahoe: Circles of Community
Ladies: Give yourself a peaceful respite over Labor Day weekend
September 2 - 5 at Camp Galilee, Lake Tahoe 
Somewhere there are people to whom we can speak with passion without having the words catch in our throats.  Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power.

"Within the struggle, joy, pain, and delight that attend our life, there is an invisible circle of grace that enfolds and encompasses us in every moment.  Blessings help us to perceive this circle of grace, to find our place of belonging within it, and to receive the strength the circle holds for us." --Jan Richardson

Come and join other women at Camp Galilee to experience together the blessings of Circles in Community. It's time to register.   Click here for the brochure with more details.
