The Episcopaper returns!!!!!

Dave Baldwin and Jackie Grove are spearheading the re emergence of the St. John’s newsletter, The Episcopaper. The date of first publication will be early October. We are looking for reflections from you about how being a member of St. John’s forms your daily life.  We would like to explore your experiences of church in this time of COVID 19. Prompts to ponder:

•    how are you staying connected to St. John’s during this time?
•    what do you miss most by not being at church every Sunday?
•    what is happening in your life that is surprising or new?

If you have any ideas for content that you would like to see or would like to help us create for the Episcopaper, please contact Jackie Grove (jackiegrove@hotmail.com) or Dave Baldwin (davebaldwin37@gmail.com).
