#Money and Meaning continues its offering of a wonderful collection of All Souls’ photographs, prayers and food for thought in bookmark format through Easter – yours for the taking.  Beginning in Advent and continuing for the next few weeks, bookmarks are available after all three services and in the church office. They are designed so that we might study and reflect together as a community around our liturgical readings as they relate to money and our living. Photographs have been contributed by All Souls parishioners. Readings and prayers were written by members of the clergy and our diaconate candidates. In addition to the bookmarks, Facebook postings offer additional photos and thoughts that continue to follow Sunday sermons and readings.  It is our hope that you will find these tools both meaningful and helpful. If so, please add your comments on Facebook.  Enjoy the journey.

Our women are well supplied except for sneakers, underwear, long casual dresses, and bags of all types. We’re out of sleeping bags, backpacks, and toiletries.
