RECTOR’S BLOG: QUICK TRIP TO OXPATCH
 
I’m writing you this week from the end of a short trip to Oxford with a couple of clergy friends. Oxford has been on my mind since I mentioned it in a sermon a few weeks ago, making a controversial claim that it’s the greatest college town. I stand by that claim 100%!!!
 
We had the great privilege of staying in an AirBnB which was perfectly located between the square and the university. We set up shop with our instruments and laptops and got into fellowship immediately. Yesterday we had a great full day of talking church, eating well, and making the obligatory trip to Square Books. We even got a tour of the new Parish Hall at St. Peter’s Oxford by the Very Rev. Jody Burnett himself! What an impressive new space they have!
 
I’m thankful for the chance to take a quick trip to reconnect with good friends and with a place where so much transformation happened in my life.  It’s got me feeling refreshed and excited about where we are as a parish heading into Fall 2022.
 
I’m happy to be coming home to our wonderful community after a short trip away.

Dear people of St. Columb's,

We are calling on all our members who are able to step forward and join our ministry efforts this fall. St. Columb's has a long history of ministry and mission following the example of Jesus, and we hope to continue that tradition and to create new ministries as well! 

Please sign up to join a small group for ministry development. These meetings will take place at the homes of parishioners who have graciously opened their space to us. The meetings will take about an hour and a half as a group leader walks us through questions about our personality traits, abilities, and spiritual gifts. At the end of our time, the group leader will gather the responses and share them with ministry leaders. 
 

Here is a list of the meetings:
Tuesday, August 23 at 5:30 PM - Meaders Home
Thursday, August 35 at 5:50 PM - Hawkins Home


(addresses can be found on on the signup)

 

SIGN UP HERE

 
After the meeting, you will receive a call from a ministry leader asking you to get involved with a ministry of your choosing at St. Columb's. We promise you won't be overwhelmed by several phone calls!

Thank you for helping us learn to walk in love as we return to ministry at St. Columb's! 
 

Walk in love as Christ loved us, giving himself as an offering and sacrifice to the Lord.
