Notes and Quotes...
Jesus told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and regarded others with contempt: "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee, standing by himself, was praying thus, 'God, I thank you that I am not like other people: thieves, rogues, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give a tenth of all my income.' But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even look up to heaven, but was beating his breast and saying, 'God, be merciful to me, a sinner!' I tell you, this man went down to his home justified rather than the other; for all who exalt themselves will be humbled, but all who humble themselves will be exalted."
- Hurricane Matthew Relief: Please pray for the people in both our own country and in the Caribbean affected by Hurricane Matthew. If you wish to donate to hurricane relief through Episcopal Relief and Development make your check out to the Redeemer with "Hurricane Matthew" in the corner. You may also donate online at the National Church website.
- Thanks: Many thanks to all the people of the church who helped to make the Fish Fry such a success. The fish and shrimp were fried just right, the side dishes were just right to complement the seafood and the drinks were plentiful. The after dinner music was delightful with just the right mix of seriousness and humor, not to mention just right for our resident clogger to get into the swing. Thanks, too, to the rest for showing up to eat, without whom we could not have earned over $300.00!
