Warm up your voices! We're going to celebrate the feast of St. Mary with a special Evening Prayer on Wednesday, August 19th at 7pm.  The service will be joint with St. James' Indian Head.  Our own Kathy Doyle will put together another virtual choir piece for this service.  The song will be 'Canticle of the Turning', a lovely Celtic-style setting of Mary's song, the Magnificat.  Click here for instructions and audio files.  The piece is primarily a vocal piece, although there are guitar chords, and you can always get in touch with Kathy about the possibility of other instruments.

In our Wednesday Noon Study we are discussing Passionate for Justice: Ida B. Wells as Prophet for Our Time.  Rev. Robin Taylor from St James' Indian Head has ordered copies of the book, which is also available on Kindle and Audible.  Check out the weekly News and Notes for the Zoom link.  We'd love to have you join us!

"Ida B. Wells was a powerful churchwoman and witness for justice and equity from 1878 to 1931. Born enslaved, her witness flowed through the struggles for justice in her lifetime, especially in the intersections of African Americans, women, and those who were poor. Her life is a profound witness for faith-based work of visionary power, resistance, and resilience for today's world, when the forces of injustice stand in opposition to progress.

These are exciting and dangerous times. Boundaries that previously seemed impenetrable are now being crossed. This book is a guide for the current state of affairs in American culture, enlivened by the historical perspective of Wells' search for justice.
The authors are an African-American woman and a child of white supremacy. Both have dedicated themselves to working, writing, and developing ministries oriented toward justice, equity, and mercy. This book can be used in all settings, but most especially in churches (pastors and other church leaders, study groups), seminaries, and universities."
