This Sunday!

Taizé  Service
Sunday, February 19th at 5 p.m.

Please join us on February 19th at 5 p.m. for St. Dunstan's Taizé service. It's truly a wonderful way to start your spiritual preparation for Lent. All are invited!

What does the service involve? The music in a Taizé service is in a style developed near the village of Taizé in France. It consists of short meditative passages of Scripture set to simple melodies and repeated many times. The purpose of the repetition is to give us time to reflect and internalize the truths of these words of Scripture. As the melodies are repeated you are invited to join in singing. This service has space for silence, scripture, meditation, and simple chanting. Sometimes it is helpful to simply listen to what others are singing as you reflect on its meaning in your life.

Support St. Dunstan's 

Flower Ministry in 2017

Don't forget that the Flower Chart is in the courtyard after services every Sunday! Your $25 gift will help provide flowers for the altar on the Sunday you designate. But your gift doesn't stop there! After Sunday services, the altar flowers are broken down into smaller bouquets and delivered to parishioners who may be in need of physical or spiritual healing or those who are celebrating special occasions in their lives.

I will turn their mourning to joy, will comfort them, and make them rejoice rather than sorrow. ~ Jeremiah 31:13

GriefShare

Every Wednesday from 5-6:30 p.m.

St Dunstan’s Bereavement Group is trying something new to support people in the church and the community who are grieving the loss of a loved one. We are offering an internationally recognized 13-week program called GriefShare. This video, discussion, and workbook-based support group began in 1996, and has equipped nearly 12,000 churches worldwide to help group members apply biblical principles to the healing process after the death of a loved one. The 13-sessions are held in the church library on Wednesdays from 5 - 6:30 p.m. The course started on February 1st and ends April 26th.

Website Happenings
Last month, St. Dunstan's trusty old website stopped working, so our website team decided to quickly create a new one. The site was down for a month as we moved content from the old site to the new one, and last week, our new site went live. Though we are far from finished, we decided to go live because the website is vital in keeping everyone up-to-date on all things St. Dunstan's, especially during the holiday season.

This Sunday's Readings

O God, who before the passion of your only­ begotten Son revealed his glory upon the holy mountain: Grant to us that we, beholding by faith the light of his countenance, may be strengthened to bear our cross, and be changed into his likeness from glory to glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
