Happy St. Dunstan’s Day! Our patron saint is honored today on our Church calendar. Dunstan was, among many things, the Archbishop of Canterbury. He died in 988. This is the prayer for his day:
O God of truth and beauty, you richly endowed your bishop Dunstan with skill in music and the working of metals, and with gifts of administration and reforming zeal: Teach us, we pray, to see in you the source of all our talents, and move us to offer them for the adornment of worship and the advancement of true religion, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Tis the season for graduations, and three of our parishioners are graduating have graduated from college this spring:
Greer Blount graduated from George Washington University with a major in communications and a minor in dance. She has been accepted to a joint masters program at the London School of Economics and the University of South Carolina.
Whit Blount also graduated from George Washington University with a degree in political science. He plans to stay in Washington and work in government affairs.
James Robertson graduated from Georgia College with a double major in political science and economics. He was named the top graduate in political science. He plans to be in Washington in the fall interning with a member of Congress.
Congratulations to all three of you!
Remember that after this Sunday we switch to our summer schedule. Beginning May 29 services will be at 8:30 and 10, with no Sunday School. If you are able to host coffee hour please sign up on the board in the parish hall or by contacting Claudia or me. We don’t have anyone signed up for this Sunday and beyond.

Some of you saw the front page article in The Atlanta Journal Constitution on Sunday interviewing women faith leaders about abortion. I was included in the story. Here is the link: https://www.ajc.com/news/religious-women-weigh-in-on-abortion-its-complicated/CIZIGU7XUFDLRB5XK4GRZTGZAI/
