Good Morning Child of God!

Thank you to all who participated with last Sunday’s service! It was indeed a blessing to have Bishop Rick with us!  We were also blessed to have Rich W. and Danny confirmed and welcomed into the church and to have Scott C. received into the ECC as well. Congrats and God’s blessings to you all!


We also installed Fr. Henry Pruski as our new pastor.  We are so pleased to have Fr. Henry’s loving and spiritual leadership.  But as he has mentioned – this is everyone’s parish.  It does not belong to our Priests, our Board of Directors, or any one group – ALL OF US ARE ALL SOULS!  So please be sure to find how you can be a part of our ministry and invite others!


God’s Blessing and Joy!

This weeks readings and question of the week:

Take time to mediate on God’s word and prepare for worship this Sunday.  And as you meditate on them, consider the question of the week: The word “witness” appears in today’s first reading and in the Gospel. How are we witnesses to the Good News in our own lives?



Acts 3:13-15, 17-19

Psalm 4

1 John 3:1-7

Luke 24:36b-48


1 John 3:1-3

 See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed. What we do know is this: when he is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is. And all who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.


John wrote this letter to encourage the Christians. He wanted them to know the truth. Then they would recognize false ideas. The letter shows that Christians are children of God. They know God as Father. If God is their Father, then they are all brothers and sisters. John shows them the kind of life that the children of God should live. They all share the life that the Lord Jesus gives to them. This is eternal life, which has no end. John wants all Christians to know that they have this life. He wants them to be sure about this.

John wrote about the truth. This is how we know the truth. We know it because we have met Jesus. We know Jesus, so we know the truth.!


How awesome and great it is that not only are we the All Souls Family – but that we truly are bothers and sisters  – children of God!  Let us share in God’s grace and love and share with each other and others – witnessing to all that we know and believe!  Amen! Alleluia!


As our reflection on the reading from Acts indicates and as has been part of the tradition of ALL SOULS, everyone is a minister of this church.   We celebrate Fr. Henry becoming our new pastor this Sunday – but we all can be part of the ministry.      HOW? YOU MIGHT ASK?
If you have a vehicle, we can use people to be part of our new “Transportation Ministry” (see article to the left), if you like to be part of the worship service look at all the blanks on the Rota (see link to the left) and talk to Ben about how you can become involved, or maybe you would like to set up or take down the chapel on Sundayafternoons or help count and document the offering or help with Hospitality, Children’s Ministry, serve on the Board of Directors or commit to praying for others. We have something for everyone!  And if everyone helps out, we can rotate duties so you don’t have to commit to do something every Sunday.  So pray how you might become involved and then talk to any of the board members for more information.


How are you doing answering this  past week’s question 
of the week from the bulletin? 


How closely do we resemble the first Christians pictured in Acts? For example, are we just and “assembly” or are we a community “of one heart and mind”? What can I do to make us more like the latter?
