Welcome to All Saints Episcopal Church "If you have a faith, or are seeking one, you are always welcome in this house of the Lord."
A Letter from Father Rick
October 20, 2016
I am writing to you in response to Hurricane Matthew's fury and devastation. We are still responding in many ways, at many different levels, to the effects this storm has had on our lives and on the lives of others, from Haiti to North Carolina. The need for constant prayer and for understanding the needs of others is just as important as addressing our own needs.
Out of a sense of humbleness and thanksgiving that God continues to bless our lives, I am asking that we spend our time and energy, as individuals and as a parish family, focusing on people and their spiritual, emotional, and physical needs. It is there, in prayer, hope, faith, love, and action that Christ will speak through us in transforming lives in our midst. Lives that are fragile, and perhaps bending, but not broken, need us to listen and care, help and be present for them.
We are in the midst of deconstruction and reconstruction of our Pre-School, first floor parish offices, and library that were badly damaged by the storm's water surge. Our sanctuary and the nave of our church are ready to go for services this Saturday and Sunday. Our parish home will be fine, but right now people's lives are what really matter, and our friends need our vigilance and attention.
Since this is a time of personal and economic uncertainty for many, we are delaying the annual giving campaign until January. We will begin the year under the guidelines of the 2016 budget, and, after the annual giving campaign, we will amend the budget as needed. Once we understand the expenses associated with the hurricane repairs, we will develop a plan to cover them. We are so thankful for your continued, faithful support.
I am blessed by this sacred community that we call our spiritual home and by the people of this parish who give breath and substance to what it means to be alive in Christ. We have been blessed in many ways, and in thankfulness, may we be a blessing to a world that desperately needs us.
Sincerely in Christ,
Richard Carroll Lindsey, Rector
