Remember, this isn’t just about charity or generosity, but about cultivating the practice of gratitude. Every time you experience something for which to be grateful, take a moment to feel the gratitude and then give thanks by dropping a little money into the box, knowing it will go to a good cause.

The Community of St. Brigid
The Community of St. Brigid is coming to Good Shepherd: Beginning on Sunday, June 11, Good Shepherd will be the site of a weekly gathering of the members of the Community of St. Brigid, a ministry partnership approved by the Vestry and also by our Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Wayne Smith. The Sunday evening events will be based on the model of a “Farm Church” or “Supper Church,” and will be open to all, both members of Good Shepherd and newcomers alike. The gatherings will include time in the garden, a simple meal, and aworship service (outdoors, weather permitting). St. Brigid’s is the brainchild of our rector, the Rev. Dr. Pamela Dolan, and her colleagues the Rev. Maria Evans and the Rev. Kevin McGrane. More information will be forthcoming, but in the mean time mark your calendars and consider supporting this new ministry initiative in the Diocese of Missouri to whatever extent feels like a good fit for you.
All are welcome!
COMPUNCTION AND REPENTANCE
Good Shepherd is proud to announce that our rector, the Rev. Dr. Pamela Dolan has written an article that’s been published in The Anglican Digest, entitled, “Compunction and Repentance.” Copies are once again available on the table outside the office, or you can find the article on: http://anglicandigest.org/issues/spring-d-2017/
We are a praying community!
