This Week at St. Alban's

Monday,  January 27, 2020
 
Dear Friends,
Guest priest Rev. Peggy Patterson in her sermon Sunday told us how Christian mystic Hildegarde of Bingen had to learn to share her visions of God and noted that we, too, are called to “let our light shine.” This was followed after coffee hour with the kick-off discussion of The Agile Church: Spirit-Led Innovation in an Uncertain Age, led by Barbara Metcalf. So, just how do you let your light shine in a world where “Christian” has become synonymous with right wing? Plan to stay after coffee hour over the next few weeks to discuss. The book is available in the office or you may call and reserve a copy and bring payment to the first gathering ($17).
Next Sunday, Feb. 2, our own Rev. Will Scott will be presiding and preaching. See you then. — Sandy, Senior warden

P.S. We’re stocking up on wine! This is the wine we use for communion from Trader Joe’s and donations are welcome! Thank you.


 

At the annual meeting, Eric and Chanthip explained finances to the younger generation.

Third Sunday Concert,  February 16, 2020:
Violins of Hope: Along the Trade Route
This concert features instruments from a collection lovingly restored violins once played by prisoners in Nazi concentration camps. We will feature four violinists playing folk music from various parts of the world. Led by Cookie Segelstein playing Klezmer, other musicians will offer Celtic, South Indian and Middle Eastern tunes.

We are grateful for an initial grant from the Albany Community Foundation, and for sponsorship from
Congregation Netivot Shalom of Berkeley, North Berkeley Investment Partners, Roland Feller Violins and Timbre Folk and Baroque. We are actively seeking additional grants and sponsors to support this amazing show.
