This Sunday’s service should be a special treat with violinist Kerren Berz as our guest musician and noted author Diana Butler Bass as our guest preacher. The service bulletin is attached to this email. Join us live at 10 a.m. Sunday. And as always, if you can’t watch the live service it is saved as a video on our Facebook page that you can watch anytime.
Bishop Wright has sent a letter announcing what he told the clergy earlier this week, that in-person worship is suspended “until further notice.” You can read it here: https://www.episcopalatlanta.org/news/a-special-update-from-bishop-wright/
Our Lenten campaign to raise funds to forgive medical debt has gotten some attention in the diocese, The link below is to a story written about the campaign. We ended up exceeding our goal by $5,000. We have sent a check to RIP Medical Debt for $55,000, which will forgive at least $5.5 million of medical debt for Atlanta families. RIP will identify the families (that meet their qualifications of household income of less than two times the federal poverty level, or medical debt that is more than 5 percent of the household income). Once the families are notified we will have the opportunity to write a letter on St. Dunstan’s letterhead to be sent to them telling them their debt is forgiven. Those letters should go out later this summer. We’ll be able to report then how many families have been helped. https://www.episcopalatlanta.org/news/st-dunstans-fundraiser-pay-off-medical-bills/
And finally, don’t forget to send your hymn and music requests to Cameron. We will work them in to services in the coming weeks.
See you for Compline tonight at 8.
