St. Paul's Episcopal Church Petersburg, Va

Offering New Life in Olde Towne

Announcements - St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Historic Downtown Petersburg, Va.

SUMMER HYMN SINGS
On Sundays this summer at the offertory, the congregation will sing a hymn requested by a parishioner.  Please let Charles know if you have a hymn you’d like sung and suggest two or three dates of Sundays this summer that you plan to be present so he can work in your request on a Sunday you will be in attendance.  We will do this through Sunday, September 3rd.

RICHMOND FLYING SQUIRRELS
The vote is in!  We will be going to the Diamond on Thursday, July 27 for a 6:35 P.M. game which will end with fireworks.  Tickets are $8.00 per person.  Please use the sign-up sheet in the Parish Hall.  Tickets are on a first come first serve basis.

SOME EARLY THOUGHTS ON THE RECTOR'S SABBATICAL
Having completed the first six weeks of my sabbatical in February and early March of this year, I am now preparing for the second six weeks which will begin August 20th and run through the month of September.  The obvious highlight of this time away from the parish will be my participation in a two week-long course entitled, The Palestine of Jesus, conducted by the faculty of St. George's College in Jerusalem.

I have been given an extensive reading list with which to engage.  Two books, Jerusalem:  The Biography by Simon Sebag Montefiore and Jerusalem:  One City, Three Faiths by Karen Armstrong, present the fascinating complexity of Jerusalem.  The Montefiore book remembers the city as a living, breathing entity with its own long unique story to tell.  The Armstrong book differentiates the three Abrahamic faiths that each claim "ownership" of Jerusalem.  I am reading the Montefiore book first as it provides more of an historical, chronological overview.  And then I hope to be able to read the Armstrong book with a better understanding of the context of Jerusalem.
