Fr. Wes has brought a challenge to All Saints, a challenge for each of us to participate individually in God so that we can together participate with God in the building of his kingdom, to focus as a congregation on developing inwardly our spiritual discipline in order that we can also as a congregation minister effectively outwardly in the world around us. ...Keep Reading

Harley Blessing

Posted onAugust 3, 2015 | by: Wes Gristy | 0 comments

Even Harleys need a blessing! After church on Sunday, July 19, I had the privilege of gathering with a small group around the Harley of Ed Whiting and Ramona Sparks to ask for God's continued favor and protection over the motorcycle and its riders. This is but another reminder that we're in desperate need of God in the everyday moments of life. God can certainly be found in the riding of a Harley, and so acknowledge that together, and pray these words to God....Keep Reading

"If they can see your eyes, they know that you care." (Dr. Rev. Ravi Zacharias) This is true throughout the mission field. Since 1998, All Saints parishioners have had a relationship with Suzy McCall and The LAMB Institute. That relationship has grown over the last 17 years. ...Keep Reading

The Bread of Heaven

Posted onJuly 29, 2015 | by: Wes Gristy | 0 comments

For the month of August, our lectionary takes us into the Bread of Life Discourse in John 6, which occurs immediately after the miraculous feeding of the five thousand. As we reflect upon the provoking words of Jesus in this passage each Sunday, we are not only prompted to move more eagerly toward him for our daily sustenance, but we also get to explore more deeply the wonders of the Eucharist....Keep Reading

What Does Manufacturing Have to Do with the Kingdom of God?

Posted onJune 22, 2015 | by: Wes Gristy | 0 comments

Have you ever visited a manufacturing company? Maybe you've watched a few of those Made in America shows on the Travel Channel, the one where "Cliff" from Cheers (John Ratzenberger) visits various American manufacturers and takes the viewers on a mind-boggling tour showing step-by-step how everyday items are made. Cool stuff, but I promise you it's not nearly as cool as getting your own personal tour of such a place!...Keep Reading

Serving Women in Need

Posted onApril 26, 2015 | by: Judy Rose | 0 comments

I have had the privilege of volunteering at Birth Choice for the past 8 1?2 years, first as a client advocate and most recently as a prenatal/ parenting class teacher. Every day that I meet with clients is a blessing for me. It's always exciting to see how God is working in every single aspect of our ministry. Some of my most gratifying experiences have been with young women who walk in without appointments. A couple of those were abortion-minded women, but each one changed her mind when she learned that her baby had a heartbeat as early as three to five weeks. These women were also given the opportunity to see their babies on untra-sound. The young ladies might not have been on my schedule, but they most certainly were on God's!...Keep Reading

Reflections on Our New Community Garden

Posted onApril 23, 2015 | by: David Knack | 0 comments

On Saturday, March 21, there was a flurry of activity on what was once a sand volleyball court. About twenty-five people worked together to build six raised garden beds. Little hands hoisted tiny shovels full of rich soil into cedar boxes. A team practiced the art of measure twice (or maybe five times) cut once. One man made what seemed like dozens of trips to the hardware store for extra supplies. Altogether, a group of people representing a wide variety of ages not only built garden beds and filled them with dirt, they also laughed and played together....Keep Reading

We Support CASA

Posted onFebruary 16, 2015 | by: Shannon Stewart | 0 comments

There is a crisis in our community in which the basic rights and needs of our most vulnerable citizens-our children-are being violated because the very system that is supposed to be looking out for them simply does not have the resources to do so. If I sound passionate, it's because I am. If I sound angry with the system, it's because I am. And I submit that you should be too....Keep Reading
