St. Columba's Episcopal Church

June 2017 Newsletter

June Newsletter  In “The Examen,” the Rev. Ledlie Laughlin invites us to try a daily practice of asking ourselves two question at the eve of each day: For what moment today am I most grateful? and For what moment today am I least grateful? He offers, “Practicing the Examen helps me pay attention and notice things I might miss; see patterns; make choices and be who I am rather than who I think I ought to be …”

Other Articles Include:

- “When in Romans” by the Rev. Kate Heichler, helps us navigate our path through summer worship;

- “A Chat with Music Director John Hurd” by Renee Schoof, reflects on the 23 years of Music Ministry of John Hurd whom we will honor on Columba Day;

- “Eva Suarez to be Ordained” celebrates the achievements of this young deacon on the eve of her ordination;

- “Thanksgivings: The Gift of Constance Azzi” tells the story of a very dedicated parishioner and the staff of St. Columba’s who benefited from her great kindness.
