An Annual Meeting is a time when we get to name and clarify the things that are motivating us as a faith community. It is a time to elect new vestry persons. It is a time to recall from where we have come and to where we hear the Spirit leading us.

The pledge envelopes are available to be picked up. On Sunday mornings they will be in the back of the church and during the week they will be in the church office.

All are welcome to join the Rev. Glenda McDowell, Rev. Milly Morrow, Rev. David McNair and others preparing for the pilgrimage to Selma for a discussion of John Lewis’s book “Walking with the Wind; A Memoir of a Movement.” and Potluck at St. Matthias on Jan. 22 at 6:00 p.m. If you are interested in the topic, please come even if you have not read the book. Also, please bring a dish to share for dinner.

Outreach Grants for 2015. Starting in 2015, All Souls will begin awarding one grant per year. The All Souls Outreach Grant application and guidelines will be available in July 2105 on the Cathedral of All Souls website.

The SENIOR LUNCH BUNCH GROUP will meet on Wednesday, January 28, at 12:30 pm, in Zabriskie Hall. Our presenters are Laura Kirby and Jody Halstead of the Haywood Street Congregation and Respite.

Please join us as we learn about the Respite from the personal experiences of one or two Friends residing at the Respite. We ask that you bring a dish to share with the group.

The Church of the Advocate: The colder the weather, the larger our homeless congregation, the greater our need for warm items: blankets, jackets, hoodies, coats, thermal sets, sweatshirts, sweaters, gloves, mittens, warm caps, warm socks. Our men also need sneakers and boots, belts, underwear, and white socks. Our women also need sneakers, bags, underwear, and long casual dresses. We’re out of sleeping bags, backpacks, and in fact welcome just about anything suitable for carrying or holding items. Thanks so much for all that you do to ease the lives of these men and women.
