Submit Prayer Request

St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Healdsburg

Dear Friends,

I pray that you and your families are safe. 

It's hard to know what to say after a week like this. It began with a communication black out (no phone or internet service) in most of Healdsburg, and now words are hard to come by. 

As you may know or suspect, several of our members have lost their homes to fire. As of yesterday morning, I felt confident we knew the total number, but now I suspect there may be more. Many of you have evacuated. By yesterday morning, Linda Maxwell, Beth Greenwald and I were able to personally speak with those whose homes we knew to be in imminent danger, but today I know that number has expanded significantly. My belief (and fervent prayer) is that all of our parishioners are safe, even if they're no longer in their homes. 

I know that we are all anxious to stay in contact with our families and loved ones at this time. If you're able to, please send an e-mail to me ( and copy Mary Taggart ( she is still in Vermont, scheduled to come back next Tuesday). Also, please call me at any time, especially to alert me of someone's loss or need, or just to talk (719-963-2638).
Instead of flying out of Santa Rosa to Seattle on Monday as I'd originally planned, I left on Tuesday from SFO. Yesterday Harry and I left Harbor View Medical Center together and took care of his business at SU--he's doing very well - thank you for your prayers! We are both flying back to SFO later today. If Healdsburg is evacuated we'll go to Berkeley to stay with David's sister. Church services will proceed on normal schedule on Sunday unless Healdsburg is under a mandatory evacuation order.

I've been thinking of the prayer with which we often conclude the Prayers of the People in worship service:

Almighty God, to whom our needs are known before we ask: 
Help us to ask only what accords with your will; and those 
good things which we dare not, or in our blindness cannot 
ask, grant us for the sake of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. 

I believe that our experiences even now will yield blessings for which we do not dare ask and in our blindness don't yet recognize. One lesson that's been embedded in my experiences of the last couple of weeks is that there are tremendous blessings even in the midst of great challenge -- most evident in our encounters with people who are swift to love, and make haste to show kindness. There are so many who do! May this be a time of encountering God's love in just such a way, in abundance.

Yours in Christ, Sally+

"We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, widowed, straight, gay, confused, well-heeled or down-at-heel. We especially welcome wailing babies and excited toddlers. We welcome you whether you can sing like Pavarotti or just growl quietly to yourself. You’re welcome here if you’re just browsing, just woken up or just got out of prison. We don’t care if you’re more Christian than the Archbishop of Canterbury or haven’t been to church since Christmas 10 years ago. We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet and to teenagers who are growing up too fast.

"We welcome keep-fit moms, football dads, starving artists, tree huggers, latte sippers, vegetarians, junk food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems, are down in the dumps or don’t like organized religion. We’re not that keen on it either.  We offer welcome to those who think the Earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or are here because Granny is visiting and wanted to come to the cathedral. We welcome those who are inked, pierced, both or neither.

"We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down their throats as kids or got lost on the Ring Road and wound up here by mistake. We welcome pilgrims, tourists, seekers, doubters and you."

[From the Diocese of Canterbury, England]
