Green Team Update: Earthworms & October 16 Meeting

Dear Green Team,

As you know, the Blessing of the Animals was held Oct. 5. Chosen because of its proximity to the Feast Day of St. Francis, this event honors his love of creation. Last Sunday, Ed led a fascinating Adult Ed discussion on the life of Francis, and the Blessing was a great follow-up.

The Green Team had earthworms blessed as part of our SPOTLIGHT on composting (thanks, Dorothy S!).  During the Blessing service, we read St. Bonaventure‘s comments about St. Francis. In describing St. Francis’ care for creation, St. Bonaventure included this:

“He removed from the road little worms, lest they be crushed under foot…”

So our “pets” were very appropriate. I was also happy to meet our new associate priest, Randolph Charles, at this joyful and energetic occasion.

To Green Team members: please plan on a quick meeting in the Reception Room Oct. 16 immediately after the 8 AM service. I’ll send out an agenda so that you can have feedback ready; the meeting will be short so that we can attend cafe or Adult Ed.

Thanks to all of you for all your efforts on the Green Team!

Kathy E.
