The recurring theme of the lessons and sermon on November 26 was from Matthew:
'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'
Here is a sample of what Church of the Holy Spirit is doing.
Thanks to June Filipski for the story and photos.
Culinary Angels continue to meet twice a month to prepare meals for those who have been homeless and now continue to receive support from Family Promise. Just before Thanksgiving, 45 servings of ham and potatoes were prepared along with many side dishes. Nine folks gathered for just an hour on a Monday evening to package all of the dishes. As you can see, the refrigerator is filled with eights bins of food ready to be delivered on Tuesday morning.

Seamen's Church Institute: Christmas at Sea:
Thanks to the help of many parishioners, we were able to deliver 27 scarves, 9 fabric bags to hold the gifts, individually wrapped snacks and lots of sample sized toiletries. Katie and Karen should be recognized for the fastest crochet hooks, as they made the majority of the scarves. And a big thanks to whoever supplied the amazing number of dental floss samples.
Christmas at Sea is a fun way that we can support the myriad of mariners who work to supply us with the many items we use daily. However, Seamen's Church Institute also does very important work to improve laws and practices that protect mariners and increase the safety and security of the maritime industry.
