Jail and Prison Ministry Sunday, Dec 1

Join us on Sun, Dec 1
Prayers will be offered at services this day for those who are incarcerated and their families and for jail and prison employees. St. Paul’s joins Forsyth Jail and Prison Ministries to offer this annual holiday outreach ministry, “In The Name of the Father,” to provide gifts for imprisoned fathers to present to their children.

“In the Name of the Father” Christmas Gift Drive

This program allows inmates at the Forsyth Correctional Center to present their children with gifts at the center’s Christmas party. On November 17, tags will be available in the library for each child whose father qualifies, showing the child’s gender and age. Parishioners choose a tag and buy two gifts for the child; a piece of clothing and a toy, game, or other appropriate gifts. Each gift should have a value of about $20, making the total for each child $40. The unwrapped gifts, with the child’s tag attached, can be placed in the labeled “In the Name of the Father” bins at the Goodheart Entrance through Sunday, Dec 8.

College Ministries

St. Paul’s is excited to partner with the Episcopal Student Fellowship at Wake Forest University. This is a great and vital part of our local ministry. ESF builds community in many ways, including:

  • Weekly Wednesday Night Dinners
  • Sunday Evening Worship Services
  • Weekend Retreats Each Semester
  • Intramural Sports
  • Service Events
  • Small-Group Bible Study

ESF welcomes any and all who want to join regardless of background, gender identity, religious affiliations, sexual orientation or really anything else.

Two Exciting New Titles Added to the Bookstore

Passionate for Justice: Ida B. Wells As Prophet for Our Time by Catherine Meeks and Nibs Stroupe is about Wells as a powerful churchwoman and witness for justice and equity from 1878 to 1931. Born enslaved, her experience flowed through the struggles for justice in her lifetime, especially in the intersections of African Americans, women, and those who were poor. This book is a guide for the current state of affairs in American culture, enlivened by the historical perspective of Wells’ search for justice.

Seeing My Skin: A Story of Wrestling With Whiteness by Peter Jarrett-Schell is about personal journey of a priest’s understanding of his Whiteness that widens into an invitation to wrestle with larger cultural issues of race and belonging.  He delves deeply into how Whiteness has shaped his life. Jarrett-Schell challenges readers to personally consider the role of race in their own lives.  In recent years, white institutions, congregations, and individuals have all begun to wrestle with their racial legacy. But these reflections often get lost abstracting ideas of white privilege, white fragility, structural racism, and the like, until they become nothing more than jargon. This book challenges its readers to look closely at how these concepts show up in their everyday lives. By examining how Whiteness has distorted his own perceptions, relationships, and sense of self, Jarrett-Schell argues for the personal stakes that white people have in dismantling racism, and offers the creative possibilities that emerge when we begin to do the work.

Audio from “The Word of the Lord?”

When we read the Bible in worship on Sundays we use a lectionary. This ancient way of reading the Bible has many benefits but a drawback is that some of the real strangeness of the scriptures can get sanitized. Not so, however, in the readings assigned for the services of Morning and Evening Prayer! This Daily Office lectionary includes many of the offensive, bizarre, and just plain odd parts of the Bible and that is what this class is all about. Join the rector, The Rev. D. Dixon Kinser, for a six-week Bible study that will uncover the insight and good news in some of the Daily Office lectionary’s strangest and most troubling stories.
