What's in this edition?
One thing that's here is a word about April and May's non-existent newsletter. It was nonexistent except on my computer. As it turns out, it is much more difficult than you might think to publish a document of any size when at sea. And when several hundred emails are involved, it became impossible, at least on our ship, to publish. The ship's wifi services were not up to the task. It is just the cost of going on vacation!
This month you'll find articles about the Rural Education Program, Sagrada Familia, the Care Committee, the Columbarium, new paint & facelift on the building, and a reflection by Bishop Gregg. Not only things going on in the local church, but around the world! And around San Miguel, too.
So read on and discover what we, the congregation, are up to at St. Paul's!
Bp. William Gregg
(This is installment 1 of 2)
The election process in the U.S continues to plow forward with a kind of relentless dysfunctionality that even by recent electorial standards is amazing, puzzling, and in many ways deeply disturbing. What is clearly at stake in this election is far deeper or greater consequence than the election of the next President of the United States. What is at stake is the moral, social, political, and spiritual question of whether a people will choose to move forward in constructive, creative ways, or abandon itself into a profound morass of emotionality and dysfunction born of fear and anxiety wrought by the egregious and intentional misuse of power. . .
