My sisters and brothers in Christ:
-- The ushers table, where both women and men are now cordially and warmly invited to serve Christ by welcoming the people of God to our services and making them feel at home. Head usher Harry Elliott will have all the details.
-- St. John's member Lara de Leon, who is launching a new ministry to provide rides to church and doctors' appointments for our members and neighbors who can't drive. (St. John Chrysostom, meet Uber St. John's!) While we're still working on the details, on Sunday Lara hopes to sign up as many volunteer drivers as possible.
P.S.: Next Sunday, Feb. 7 at 9 a.m. in the Bishop's Room, in the last installment of An Epiphany Search for God at the Movies, Andy Guilford will lead a conversation about "A Man For All Seasons." Winner of Oscars for best picture, director, and actor, this 1966 classic depicts the epic clash at the beginning of the English Reformation between Henry VIII and Sir Thomas More. You'll love it If you enjoyed "Elizabeth" and "The Tudors." At the link below, you can rent the film at Amazon and watch on your computer or tablet. (Mo. Martha noticed this trick: If you click on "more purchase options," you can rent the movie for $2.99 (standard definition) instead of the $3.99 HD choice that pops up first.)
