Wednesday at St. Alban's

From today’s daily lectionary readings – Matthew 9:16-17, Cotton Patch Version…

“Nobody ever uses new, unshrunk material to patch a dress that has been washed. For it shrinking, it will pull the old material and make a tear. Nor do people put new tubes in old, bald tires. It they do, the tires will blow out, and the tubes will be ruined and the tires will be torn up. But they put new tubes in new tires and both give good mileage.”

Join us today, Wednesday, October 7 for Marys and Marthas at 3:45 p.m., Blessing of the Animals at 5:30 p.m. and Men's Study Group Movie Night at 6:15 p.m. Who knows, it might improve your mileage!

A Thought from Garrett

St. Alban’s discernment candidate, Garrett Boyte, shared this with me from his journal…

“This is a thought I've been mulling over for a while and today it became concrete for me.
Earlier today I was helping a friend of a friend. This young woman had a massive four poster King size bed made of real wood. I had already moved the bed from her mother's house to her new house, and I had started the two hour process of putting this behemoth together.

My friend's friend is a single mother with a young daughter. Of course, I was happy to help. I've always had a penchant for single mothers because I believe it takes a great deal of strength to do what they do.
