From the Vestry
1) Thanks to Gary and Karen Larson and Beth McKibbin for making the pots in the courtyard come alive with flowers. St. Francis looks beautiful both inside and out.
2). I heard the salad luncheon was wonderful and a huge hit!!! Thanks to all who participated. You help make St. Francis what it is, a caring community full of wonderful people sharing in the joy of Christ’s love for us all.
3) Office Hours – Ann will be in the office most times between 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Father Bob will be in the office on Wednesday, June 15 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. The office phone will be manned outside of these hours when the office is closed.
4) Please continue to offer prayers for our search committee and those who have been called as a possible rector for our church. We can never have too many prayers!!!
5) Some levity to share (because who couldn't use a good laugh these days?): A minister, a priest and a rabbi went for a hike one day. It was very hot. They were sweating and exhausted when they came upon a small lake. Since it was fairly secluded, they took off all their clothes and jumped in the water.
Feeling refreshed, the trio decided to pick a few berries while enjoying their "freedom." As they were crossing an open area, who should come along but a group of ladies from town.
Unable to get to their clothes in time, the minister and the priest covered their privates, and the rabbi covered his face while they ran for cover.
After the ladies had left and the men got their clothes back on, the minister and the priest asked the rabbi why he covered his face rather than his privates. The rabbi replied,
"I don't know about you, but in MY congregation, it’s my face they would recognize."
