A Prayer for Our Selma Pilgrims

Gracious God, watch over your pilgrims as they journey to Montgomery, Selma and Atlanta. May they safely arrive and safely return. May their journey bring them further into understanding the stories of so many in our country, bring them further into challenging but transformative experiences, and further into your work of seeking justice for every human being, looking to serve others as Christ himself served and in whose name we pray, amen.

Update on Music School Building

Last spring, the Vestry approved funds to repair the rotted floor on the porch of 603 N. Greene St., the house next to the Patterson Terrace. At the same time, we replaced the solid railing with an open railing to deter people from sleeping on the porch. The Junior Warden didn’t realize that the repairs required approval from the Historic Preservation Commission, which denied after-the-fact approval, then refused to hear a compromise proposal. After six months of negotiations and appeals, the vestry has regretfully applied for a certificate of appropriateness to demolish the building. A longer article can be found here

April Casserole Ministry - Please Note Changes

You may not be aware that before the pandemic Church of the Holy Spirit had a vibrant Tuesday Community Dinner and Bible Study where neighbors could also visit the onsite food pantry. With the pandemic, Holy Spirit and Holy Trinity quickly shifted gears and for over two years the Casserole Ministry has provided hundreds of fresh meals to our neighbors in Christ. Read more here.

I am excited to share that Holy Spirit will be transitioning back to their Tuesday night Community Dinners! We will provide main dishes (containing any type of protein) and vegetables that will now be served at the church dinner. This will require a few changes; we will no longer need people to package food at Holy Spirit, and drop-off times have been adjusted to reflect these changes. Click HERE to learn more and to sign up.
