Saturday January 29
You are invited to join us as we welcome the Rev. Russ and Mrs. Heidi Smith as they share their stories and testimonies about their work as SAMS (Society of Anglican Missionaries and Senders) missionaries.
During their 35 years of service, they have worked in the Anglican Church of Chile. Russ has been the pastor of many different parishes and Heidi has worked in many different Christian schools as well as raising their five children, all of whom are now grown.
Fr. Tom & his wife have been friends with, and helped to support, Russ and Heidi for the past 22 years and are always happy to see them when they return once every three years for their ‘home missio’, which is to renew relationships with their sponsoring churches.

Richard Rohr Meditation discussions
Saturday mornings 8am-9/9:30am
We have no set agendas, but simply engage in a wide-ranging spiritual discussion built on our readings of the daily meditations from Rohr's Center for Action and Contemplation. It is free to sign up for the CAC Daily Meditations. Although Rohr is a Franciscan priest, the meditations often come from other theologians, and even from Episcopalians on occasion! For a link to our Saturday zoom gathering, please email Garth Myers at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. We are a small group in number, but mighty in spirit and welcoming love.
