NeverTheLess – November 25, 2018



Welcome To All, especially if you are visiting us today. We are delighted to have you here.  If you are visiting, we invite you to fill out a pew card and put it in the plate.

Nametags … we have some new staff, and we’re seeing lots of new visitors.  Please wear your nametag to help the newer folks know who we all are; it is the easiest way to offer radical hospitality!  If you don’t have one, please let Margaret know – 798.6336.

Contemplative Service Tonight…join us here at 5 pm this evening for a contemplative, quiet service of prayer, poetry, and Taizé music to gently usher in the new workweek.  Invite a friend, all are welcome!

Brunswick Stew Recap   SJTL just completed our most successful Brunswick stew fundraiser yet selling 470 quarts. There are too many people to thank for their efforts with prep work, cooking and selling. Thank you so much. A special thanks to Dale Hill and Tom Fritter for the barrel and pot preparation which makes the cooking possible. That is heavy, messy, and time-consuming work.  We are SOLD OUT again this year, grossing about $4,500.  Many of you know our Stew Master Keith Herald; please thank him for his time and expertise.  For those who purchased I hope you liked this year’s product. Any feedback is welcome.  Lula says “fabulous” and she would know.
