"Art of the Parables" - Save the dates: FRIDAYS from 10:30—11:45 AM: June 28 (St. Luke’s), July 19 (JCOH), July 26 (St. Luke’s), August 9 (JCOH), August 23 (JCOH), August 30 (St. Luke’s). Jews and Christians have used the art of parables throughout the ages to imprint faith’s most important messages into tightly knit metaphors and stories. Parables invite us to unpack and interpret images and memorable stories, and just when we think we understand their meaning, a new layer of spirituality emerges. Come explore the best of Jewish and Christian literature with Rabbi Josh Franklin (JCOH) and the Very Rev. Denis Brunelle (St. Luke’s).
Celebrate Friendship - June 22 - The Fellowship Committee invites you to a reception on Saturday, June 22 from 5:30 to 7:30 at the home of John and Wendy Phillips, 69 Jerico Road, as we celebrate friendship and the coming of Summer. Please see the Sunday Bulletin for details.

FACE IT: It’s a lot easier to remember people’s names if you have an image of what they look like. That’s why we are asking all parishioners to submit a digital photo of themselves to Tara Brinka at firstname.lastname@example.org for the 2020 Directory. Another option is to give a favorite photo to us — and we will scan and return it. Thirdly, if you do not have a flattering portrait, see Lys Marigold (10 o’clocker) or email: LAMarigold@aol.com who will iphoto you until you are pleased.
