Today's Readings for the Daily Office (Book of Common Prayer, p. 942)
Psalms 1, 2, 3 (morning)       4, 7 (evening)
Isaiah 40:12-23
Ephesians 1:1-14
Mark 1:1-13
 
Can't write a reflection this morning.  Here are the readings.  
 
Because the Fayetteville Public School ststem is closed, St. Paul's Offices are closed today.  (We follow the school system for closings.) 

Our regular cooks can't get in to prepare Community Meals today, so we're playing it by ear, serving coffee and sandwiches.  Razorback Transit is running a limited schedule, so some of our usual guests may not be able to make it.  Others are cold and hungry.  We'll have a warm welcome and something for them.

If you have safe transportation and would like to help with sandwiches or whatever, please come on down to the church this morning to help Community Meals.
