Busy, busy! Things are bustling around St. Philip’s, and the stack of photos is mounting (digitally) with no time to sit and post them for the multitudes. Let’s see if we can’t celebrate some of the good that’s going on at St. Philip’s and get a few photos up and moving!
Discipline, discipline. The photos are stacking up, and there’s no real theme to them, except St. Philippians are working hard to make a difference, both near and far, recently and several months ago! Let’s make a dent in the digital photo files!
Most recently, on November 4, 2012, this crowd created an amazing reception for the Bishop and the newly baptized, confirmed, received, and renewed. It was a big crowd of honorees (over 20!), and these ladies put on a fabulous do for the well-wishers and the guests of honor. Can you see our Bishop peeking over from behind the crowd? Dianne created the beautiful arrangement seen here and in the upper left of this post.
On September 11, 2012, we had one of the first cold snaps here. That didn’t slow down our Grounds Committee. These people have too much fun to stay warm at home, enjoying a second cup of coffee. Bruce arrived a bit earlier than the rest, and was spied sitting among the basil, waiting for the rest of the troops to arrive.
Now we can move into the “far away” category. St. Philippians are making it possible for this emergency exit staircase to be built at the hostel for children in our companion diocese in Durgapur, India. We hope to have a photo of the completed staircase when the team visits in February 2013!
Carry on, St. Philippians!
