Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.

Some Assembly Required

In the aptly titled Some Assembly Required, a Radical Conservative Feminist member of King of Peace shares her experience with our Art Guild and reflects on Christian community. She says in part,

I had a great afternoon making new friends. Our church has started an Art Guild that meets a couple of Saturdays a month, and today was the day. We made cedar-filled sachets to sell at our Christmas bazaar later in the year. I like making things with my hands, but more important to me was spending a couple of hours with my daughter making new friends and getting to know other women in our church. Afterwards, some of us went to lunch together, too.

The writer of Hebrews said in Hebrews 10:24-25, "And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching."

The full text of the post is here: Some Assembly Required. FYI: The Art Guild meets every other Saturday at 12 noon at the church to create crafts for sale in our Holiday Bazaar. The group is under the leadership of Deacon Jennifer Highsmith and its schedule is found in our newsletter and at the church website www.kingofpeace.org.

In the archives is the sermon Baptism and Community.

peace,

The Rev. Frank Logue, Pastor

    Sounds like a Baptist PK is doing alright and she is happy at King of Peace. She likes her church family and her pastor's family. We are happy that she has found you. We think Bro Frank is OK also.

    Glad you took a step towards being part of a community. Sometimes a newcomer may say that no one spoke to them, but they should also ask themselves if they stuck around after the service and tried speaking to someone new themselves. In a church where there are so many newcomers, it is hard for old timers to greet each new person. Sometimes the newcomer has to take some responsibility and take a leap of faith to meet people. Welcome! Let's pray more follow in your footsteps and take that leap.
