Good Afternoon!

We had a wonderful time discussing Hidden Figures on Tuesday evening up at Ellen and Marty's home. This story about the African-American women working for NASA has only really come to light thanks to this book and the movie that was made from it. The movie is wonderful and we do plan on showing it at a movie night one evening this summer. The book however, goes much further into depth about segregation, those who fought it and those who refused to abide by the newly made laws to end it. If you haven't read it I highly recommend it!

We are also going to host a movie night in the parish hall to watch "Hidden Figures" which will be open to all.

Stay tuned for more details!Our next selection will be, A Story Like the Wind by Laurens Van Der Post. " Van der Post’s incomparable knowledge of Africa illuminates this epic novel, set near the Kalahari Desert, about a boy on the verge of manhood, his experiences with the wonder and mystery of a still-primitive land, and his secret friendship with the Bushman whose life he saves. The narrative of A Story like the Wind continues in A Far-Off Place." (description from Amazon page)

Meg and Linda S. have both read it and loved the writing and language used to really place the reader in the heart and soul of Africa. 

Do to vacation schedules our next will be meeting on Thursday, August 2nd. We will meet at Linda M's house so that Pat Peyser is able to participate. Aaron will have a few in Levin & Co. in about a week and a half. It is also available on Amazon, and for those veering away from Amazon, eBay is another option. I didn't see that it is available on Kindle but those of you who use Kindle may be more clever than I! 

all the best,

Linda

Bible Search

 

St. Paul’s Church is a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California. Our mission is to know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and to make him known. We share teaching, worship, and sacraments based on the Bible and the Book of Common Prayer. We are committed to serving and caring for the spiritual and physical needs of others. 

History

Episcopalians gathered in private homes to found a new Healdsburg congregation in 1879. The first purpose-built structure for our church was the parish hall constructed in 1900.  This building included a lower story and was used for worship. This same building was then relocated to the corner, lost its lower story, and was reoriented to become the current church. The addition of stained glass windows, a small steeple, and wooden pews made it a spiritual home.  Additional buildings include our parish hall and the Vanderhurst.  The Vanerhurst was built as the residence for the former rector, The Rev. Marvin Bowers and his family and is now used by our current rector, The Rev. Sally H. Hubbell and her family.

St Paul’s enjoyed a burst of energy under the leadership of Canon Marvin Bowers who involved himself and the church community in many aspects of social outreach. These included the establishment of North County Community Services and the local ecumenical board, Healdsburg Shared Ministries. Rev. Marvin also translated his social work amongst migrant workers into the establishment of a weekly Spanish-language worship community. All of these continue to this day.

St Paul’s has faced many challenging issues over the years.  With each experience, we have grown stronger and improved the structure and governance of our church. Our parish continues its witness to a ministry based on biblical preaching, traditional worship and community outreach. 

We are pleased and excited to announce that The Rev. Sally H. Hubbell has been appointed Priest in Charge of St. Paul’s Church. 

We welcome you to come to our Sunday services so you can meet Mother Sally and find out how she is making a difference our community.  In addition, please join us at coffee hour immediately following each service so you can meet our family.  You will see first hand how the people of St. Paul's Church are committed to improving the lives of the people in Headlsburg and the surrounding communities.
