Upcoming Commemorations:

Benedict of Nursia, Abbot of Monte Cassino, died around 540 – Monday, July 11, 2022

Benedict is known as the father of the Western monastic movement. Educated in Rome, he went to live as a hermit, and eventually gathered a community of monks around him. He wrote a rule for living in monasteries that is used by Benedictines and adapted by others.

Nathan Söderblom, Bishop of Uppsala, died 1931 – Tuesday, July 12, 2022

A winner of the Nobel Prize for peace for his efforts to unite peoples after the First World War, Söderblom also called attention to the revival of early church worship principles, and helped to lay the groundwork for the World Council of Churches.

Stewardship Snippets:

Luke 10:27 – Jesus answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.”

We are free people of God, and Jesus teaches us the highest purposes of our freedom: To love God with all our being, and to love our neighbor through acts of kindness and mercy.
