Dear friends,

This Sunday is one of the most fun social events of the year at St. Dunstan’s. It’s time for the annual Flying Pig BBQ. We will only have ONE SERVICE at 10 a.m. (no Sunday School or confirmation class). The feast will begin after the service is ended. Bring a side dish or dessert to share. John Gimson and his motley crew will take care of the meat. Tickets are $15.

The holiday season is fast approaching. We will again this year help provide Thanksgiving dinner to those in the neighborhood of Emmaus House, near the old Turner Field. Emmaus House is an Episcopal ministry that provides many services to people in that area. We have agreed to provide 50 bags filled with the makings for side dishes. Emmaus House provides the turkeys. Below is the link to sign up to bring bags (note — please put items in a sturdy bag or tote). The list of what is needed is on the SignUp Genius. Bags should be back at the church by Sunday, November 12.

Dunstan Dines is back! DD are groups of 6-8 parishioners who gather together for a meal about once a month (each group schedules its own times). You can gather at one another’s homes, at restaurants, or even at church. It is a great way to get to know your fellow parishioners better. A sign up sheet will be in the parish hall for the next two Sundays, or you can let me or Andrea Patten Weerakoon know if you’re interested.

And finally, at long last we have a refugee family to sponsor and help adjust to life in America. Mimi Gold and Vivian Siggers will let us know when help is needed. They share this report:

“It’s truly exciting to announce that we finally have a refugee couple, who have come to the United States from Burma (Myanmar). Vivian and Mimi met Syukur and Sharifah in Clarkston. Syukur, a perfect gentleman, was waiting outside, knowing we would need help finding the apartment. Sharifah greeted us warmly at the door. It was exciting to learn that both of them are able to communicate with some English and added gesturing. They were very happy to learn that we and other volunteers would be teachers and that our church members would help them obtain household goods, furniture and more. We are very blessed to have such a delightful and openly excited couple to help learn English and explore their community.”

With love,
