Same Sex Marriage Liturgical Resources

Starting 1 Advent 2012, priests in the Diocese of Connecticut may officiate at the civil marriage of a same-sex couple. Those who choose to do so have new liturgical resources, a rite for provisional use approved at General Convention, "I Will Bless You and You Will Be a Blessing," as well as pastoral resources for preparing same-sex couples. This information was included in a letter emailed on August 3 to clergy of the Diocese of Connecticut. The letter, the resolution from General Convention, and the full resource referenced, are available from the diocesan website.

Make a Little Extra to Share

The St. Andrew's Loaves and Fishes ministry provides meals to parishioners in times of illness, loss of a loved one, or welcoming a newborn--to name a few. Please consider preparing a meal; they can be simple and you can choose a time that is mutually agreeable for you and the recipient. If you are not much for cooking but available to drive, we can pair you with a cooking buddy just like a good wine. It's easy and it's meaningful--please get involved! For more information, phone Brenda Naegel at 203 887-7640 or send an e-mail.

The Women's Spirituality Book Club

The Women's Spirituality Book Group will be discussing the novel "A Fall of Marigolds" by Susan Meissner on Tuesday, July 29 starting at 6:30pm in Classroom 1. The novel tells the tale of two women, Clara and Taryn, separated by a century in time but linked by a gorgeous scarf. Both women had to work through mind-numbing grief after losing the love of their life, Clara in a 1911 fire in a New York factory, and Taryn in the collapse of the World Trade Center. Both women learn that the weight of the world is made bearable by the love we give away. The book is available in hardback or in a Kindle version from Amazon. Please RSVP to Rebecca Rastetter by July 22 and let her know if you need childcare.

Men's Prayer Group/Book Club

The St Andrew's Men's Group gathers monthly for fellowship, Bible study, prayer, and discussion. The next meeting is scheduled for July 23 at 7:00pm. There will be a discussion of the documentary film called "I Am." It was made by Tom Shadyac, director of many successful comic films, after a life-changing accident. He begins by asking some great thinkers "What's Wrong with the World" and "How Can We Fix It?" The film is what came of this questioning. You can buy the DVD from Amazon or it can be viewed on a Kindle Fire, computer, Roku, or other players via Netflix or, for a fee, Amazon Instant Video. For further information contact John Armstrong.
