Only 5 days ‘til the Sandwich Fair!!! Preparations are now in very high gear. We are eager for jams and jellies, as well as baked goods. Carol Tubman will be providing information sheets on Sunday. Please see her if you can help with food preparations. A signup sheet for staffing the booth at the Fair October 5th through 8th is posted on the Parish Hall bulletin board. We're also looking for a few people who would be willing to make reminder calls. This is our most significant parish fundraiser. We're counting on your participation. Please contact Gretchen Behr-Svendsen if you have questions.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!  We will be hosting the Lakes Region Convocation meeting here on Tuesday. The meeting begins with a gathering time from 6:30, for which the host parish provides the refreshments. We only have the responsibility every other year, and we really do need a dozen people to provide something. (Could be sandwich quarters, cookies, chips and dip, crackers and cheese.) Please bring them to the church by 6:30 on Tuesday. Then feel free stay to socialize and hear about the resolutions that are coming before our Diocesan Convention. There's a signup list on the stand in the Parish Hall. Thanks.

Those experiences in life where we witness a greatness – something in someone else or in ourselves that is clearly beyond one’s own making – or when we face those experiences in life where we feel so small and our need is so great, I think these experiences in life put us in our place: creature in the presence of the Creator.
See you in church!
Blessings, Heidi+
