Dear Reader,

This past weekend we experienced the end of the Bach Festival. It’s been a great few weeks, and it has been especially nice to see old friends back in town.

Here’s my sermon, inspired by Bach himself, and on the feeding of the 5,000. Click here

Blessings,

Rob

Heston Engagement – Parish-Wide Reception!

 

Beth and Joe invite the entire parish to celebrate the engagement of their son, young Joe Heston, a former St. Dunstan’s parishioner and acolyte.

Please join them this Sunday, August 10th at 11:15 am 

right after church, 

for a reception in Brock Hall.  

 

They’ll have Jeffrey’s catering the event, so all you need to “bring” is your selves!  Many of you know young Joe; some of you will meet him.  He’ll be here with his new fiancée, Katy Hutchison, of Holland, Michigan.  With their upcoming nuptials April 18th at their home parish way over in Michigan, this is a wonderful way for our St. D’s parish family to bless them and celebrate!

 

 

“Read to Me” Book Drive

Children’s books are pouring in – our first book-bin is full!

A grateful thank you to all who have donated so far. 

We still have time to fill up a second book-bin with baby, toddler and preschool books! 

(Look for it at the welcome table).

 

 

Coffee & Tea Service Needed

 

The Memorial Reception Committee needs your help in acquiring a silver plated coffee pot and tea pot.  These are needed for small memorial receptions and partial refills when the large urns are used.  Please contact Cynthia Young 831-375-4682, if you can donate either of these items.

 

Update Your Information in the Parish Directory

August 17 is the last day to update your information or get a new picture for the Fall edition of our Parish Directory.
 
If you have moved or changed any of your contact information in the past 6 months, or if you want to make sure your information is correct, please email your updated information to the church office.
 
Rev. Marcia Lockwood will be available after church this Sunday and next Sunday to take pictures of anyone who does not yet have a picture in the directory or might like a new one.

 

 

Building Community Support for Our Preschool

Can you help spread the word about our school?

 

The upcoming golf tournament has

 become an important fundraiser for our school, and it has the potential to be much, much bigger as it expands into our community.

All it will take to make this tournament huge is your help 

in spreading the word!

Would you mention our golf tournament to the local businesses you patronize, and let them know that 

for only $100 they can be a “Hole Sponsor”

and have their name and logo on a sign on the golf course?

This is a very affordable way to show support for our kids, and to market to a highly qualified group of people.  Pick up some brochures on the Welcome Table to help spread the word. Businesses can then contact the church office for more information or to sign up.

 More prominent sponsorships are also available.

Lectionary for this Sunday

The Ninth Sunday after Pentecost – August 10, 2014 

Grant to us, Lord, we pray, the spirit to think and do always those things that are right, that we, who cannot exist without you, may by you be enabled to live according to your will; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Psalm 85:8-13 Benedixisti, Domine

 

8      I will listen to what the LORD God is saying, *

for he is speaking peace to his faithful people

and to those who turn their hearts to him.

9      Truly, his salvation is very near to those who fear him, *

that his glory may dwell in our land.

10   Mercy and truth have met together; *

righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

11   Truth shall spring up from the earth, *

and righteousness shall look down from heaven.

12   The LORD will indeed grant prosperity, *

and our land will yield its increase.

13   Righteousness shall go before him, *

and peace shall be a pathway for his feet.

 

Romans 10:5-15

 

Moses writes concerning the righteousness that comes from the law, that “the person who does these things will live by them.” But the righteousness that comes from faith says, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’” (that is, to bring Christ down) “or ‘Who will descend into the abyss?’” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). But what does it say?

“The word is near you,

on your lips and in your heart”

(that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); because if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved. The scripture says, “No one who believes in him will be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; the same Lord is Lord of all and is generous to all who call on him. For, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

But how are they to call on one in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in one of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone to proclaim him? And how are they to proclaim him unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

Matthew 14:22-33

 

Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, but by this time the boat, battered by the waves, was far from the land, for the wind was against them. And early in the morning he came walking toward them on the sea. But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out in fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them and said, “Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid.”

Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat, started walking on the water, and came toward Jesus. But when he noticed the strong wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!” Jesus immediately reached out his hand and caught him, saying to him, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?” When they got into the boat, the wind ceased. And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”
