Public Service of Healing part of this Sunday’s Worship
 
This Sunday as part of our Sunday worship services we will have a Public Service of Healing, in which prayers will be offered for those in need of healing, and there will be an opportunity to receive the sacrament of anointing and laying on of hands.  You are encouraged to call to mind this week those who are in need of healing and say their names at the appropriate time in the service during the Litany of Healing.  Also this week consider the hurts you have – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual – that you may want to raise up for sacramental healing on Sunday.
Savior of the world, by your cross and precious blood you have redeemed us; save us, and help us, we humbly beseech you, O Lord.
 
Diocese’s Southern Convocation Meets at St. Peter’s on Tuesday
 

St. Peter’s will be hosting the pre-convention meeting of the Diocese’s Southern Convocation in the Parish Hall on Tuesday, January 28 at 7pm.  Delegates and clergy from the southern part of the Diocese will be coming together to review the 2014 Diocesan Budget and resolutions coming before the Diocesan Convention on Feb 21-22.  Parishioners are welcomed to come and sit in on the meeting.  Bishop Shand and members of Diocesan staff will be in attendance.
 
Adult Forum Concludes this Sunday:  Re-imagining the Episcopal Church & the Diocese
 
This Sunday will conclude the three part Adult Forum Series on “Re-imagining our Diocese and the Episcopal Church,” exploring changes on the horizon for our Diocese and the Episcopal Church.  The series is held 10:15am -10:50am.  Be informed about your church’s future.  Learn how things operate now, and what changes to structures and policies could mean for St. Peter’s and for Episcopalians in general.  This Sunday the Adult Forum will be held in the Parish House Library – the room opposite the Parlor. 
This Sunday’s topic: What does the resignation of Bishop Shand mean for the future of the Diocese of Easton? Issues the Diocese will confront at its next Convention.  How the decisions of General Convention to re-imagine the church could play out in our Diocese.  Reaction and Discussion.  What role St. Peters’ can play in the future of the Diocese?

Men’s Emergency Shelter continues this week
 
One of St. Peter’s primary outreach ministries, hosting the Community Emergency Shelter Program (CESP) in St. Peter’s Parish Hall, is currently underway through  January 24.  We are providing a hot dinner, a warm, safe place to stay overnight and breakfast and a bag lunch at St. Peter’s for homeless men in our community during this week.  Because of today’s sub-freezing temperatures we are keeping the shelter open through the day. More than twenty men are seeking shelter.  Thank you to those who are volunteering.  Please keep these men and those who are serving them in your prayers.
