Guest Preacher This Sunday
The Rev. Canon John Bolton will be at Grace Church this Sunday, November 16. He will preach at both worship services and speak with our youth group during the Sunday School hour. Canon Bolton is canon chaplain on the staff of Bishop Rob Wright. He partners with the bishops to provide pastoral support for clergy and their families, particularly in times of transition and crisis, and among clergy whose ministry is geographically remote and isolating. Bolton, who moved to Atlanta in 1983, was for six years director of pastoral care at Peachford Hospital while working as a supply priest throughout the diocese. He also maintained a private counseling practice as a licensed professional counselor in Georgia. He also coordinates efforts with the Commission on Ministry and parishes to support men and women involved in the diocesan discernment of vocation.
Thanksgiving food bags for Emmaus House should be dropped off in the marked container by the information table by this Sunday, November 16. Please label the bag for Emmaus House. If you prefer, leave a check (payable to Grace Episcopal Church with “Emmaus House Thanksgiving” in the memo line) at the church office no later than Wednesday, November 19 and Durwood Pepper will do the shopping for you. For every $15 donated, we will be able to provide groceries to feed a family of four. Thank you for your support of Emmaus House.
