Crash Your Local Episcopal Church on Good Samaritan Sunday

On Facebook, there is an invitation for folks to "Crash their Local Episcopal Church this Sunday" - it's a way of sharing and bringing our attention to attending during the summer, and letting us know the Gospel reading for this week. So I share with you their invitation:

"Does God go on vacation in the summertime?" So asks a child in a cartoon as a churchgoing family arrives to discover very few people there. Maybe you're on vacation right now. But why should that stop you from attending church? Most likely, there's an Episcopal community of faith near you.

While you're at it, bring a friend! Bring the people you're visiting. If out-of-town guests are visiting you, bring them to your church.

And if you're wishing you could at least get a stay-cation, take a couple hours off and spend time at church with your own faith community, or with a new one. You never know what might happen! You may wind up being a Good Samaritan for someone who really needs your help this weekend.

Won't you join us this Sunday? Services are at 8:00 am and 10:30 am.  Will you be there? Who will you bring?

God willing - and the traffic through Atlanta cooperates - I WILL be there!

All is well in Sewanee, TN, where I have been wrapped in the prayer shawl I received so unexpectedly at St. John's. What a big heart you have!
