G’Day St. Albans,

If there is a quiet, doldrums during the heat of summer in August, so is there a relative “down” time following the excitement of Christmas.  The weather is often cold and gloomy, and the pageantry and excitement of Gold Rush in February has  not yet arrived. A perfect time to find a good book and cuddle up in a comfortable chair for a quiet read OR to take the dog (or just you) for a long walk while it is cool enough to enjoy the out-of-doors, OR to dust off that hobby you have been meaning to get to but were too busy. Soon enough the pace of life will pick up and you will be hard pressed to get in everything you want to do.  All the parishioners of St. Albans are very grateful to those members who make up the Search Committee that will do the hard work of defining and finding candidates for the leadership of St. Albans.  (Pat Stewart, Kay Iwanski, Fred Poteet, Sally Carr, Jan Heineman, Linda Brockwell, Joe Stevens, Sandy Schlegel, and Kelly Ryan).  This task will require a great deal of “homework,” many meetings and much soul searching.  We are all very grateful indeed for your time and dedication.

NOTE:  The decision has been made.  St, Albans Friendship Breakfasts will continue to be held at Denny’s on  the first and third Tuesdays of each month.  The next breakfast will be on Tuesday, January 22, at 8:00 am.  Y’all come!

Plane Crash – An airplane was about to crash.  There were 4 passengers onboard but only 3 parachutes. The 1st. passenger said, ”I am Stephen King, the bestselling author of my time…. My millions of fans need me, and I can’t afford to die.”  So he took the 1st pack and left the plane.  The 2nd passenger said, “I am the world’s smartest man.  The world  needs  me. I can’t die.”  He took the 2nd pack and jumped out of the plane.  The 3rd passenger, the Pope, said to the 4th passenger, a 10-year-old school boy, “My son, I am old and don’t have many years left, you have more years ahead so I will sacrifice my life and let you have the last parachute.”  The little boy said, “That’s OK, Your Holiness, there’s a parachute left for you.  The worlds smartest  man just  took my backpack.”

Go in Faith, Keep the Peace, Love the Lord, Be the Church
