Why You Should Join St. Bart's Men's Group

Posted by on

Other men may share my reaction to a fellow parishioner’s suggestion that I attend the Men’s Bible Study. “I’ve thought about it but I’m not sure it’s for me. I am not a Bible scholar and have little knowledge about the history, places and people I hear about...

Wake Up!

Posted by The Rev. Mary Lynn Coulson on

The Rev. Mary Lynn Coulson's sermon from Sunday, August 20.   Do you ever hit snooze on your alarm in the morning? I do. Every. Single. Morning. At least five, or ten, times. The bed is just so soft and warm! When I lived in Minnesota, in the winters there was that much more incentive to...

Posted by on

Bright and early Tuesday morning we awoke to the lovely sound of dogs whining and roosters crowing. Yet our breakfast of boiled eggs, avocado, sausage, bread, and bananas quickly remedied the unruly wake up. Since it was our last day in Lauranette, Malia and I packed our belongings, organized...

Haiti Trip August: Day 5: Malia has a Revelation

Posted by on

After a productive Compline last night and Malia discovering suddenly that she had no idea what a mosquito looked like, we all settled down for a long night filled with shouting matches between dogs, cows, and donkeys. It didn't help that the roosters have no sense of time. We awoke to eat a...

Take a Prayer Walk

Posted by The Rev. Chris Harris on

Bishop Mathes would ask congregations a simple, but very powerful question, If your church were to close tomorrow, would your community notice? It’s a great question, but one that each of us might be inclined to pass off on the institution to solve. So, I like to bring it down to the...

Haiti Trip August Day 4: Sunday

Posted by on

The animals proclaim the day with a noisy ruckus chorus. Sun's coming up. There is music playing and the construction workers are hammering putting up scaffolding on the school building as we awaken and get ready to join the community and praise God.  A few Haitians are preparing the...

Haiti Trip August Day 3: The One With the Water

Posted by on

After a night filled with the unending howls of stray dogs, the not so timely calls of roosters and the seemingly infinite crickets (seriously I've never heard crickets anywhere near as loud), the group awoke to breakfast and an early start to our day at 730. While we thought we would be hand...

Haiti Trip August Day 2: Arrival in Lauranette

Posted by on

Today was our first day in Lauranette. We had all prepared ourselves for the bumpiest ride of our lives, and we got what we were expecting, with the occasional paved road (which came with a sigh of relief). We all made it through the ride feeling alright and received a warm welcome in...
