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!
