"We are what we are because of what we have been."
We are dedicated to maintaining the Anglican traditions that have formed our worship over the ages.
The Pharisees went and plotted to entrap Jesus in what he said. So they sent their disciples to him, along with the Herodians, saying, “Teacher, we know that you are sincere, and teach the way of God in accordance with truth, and show deference to no one; for you do not regard people with partiality. Tell us, then, what you think. Is it lawful to pay taxes to the emperor, or not?” But Jesus, aware of their malice, said, “Why are you putting me to the test, you hypocrites? Show me the coin used for the tax.” And they brought him a denarius. Then he said to them, “Whose head is this, and whose title?” They answered, “The emperor’s.” Then he said to them, “Give therefore to the emperor the things that are the emperor’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” When they heard this, they were amazed; and they left him and went away.
- Hurricane Relief: Please remember the people of Texas and areas affected by Hurricane Harvey as they begin the long rebuilding process. Your prayers are also asked for the people of Florida and Georgia as they recover from the devastation of Hurricane Irma. Episcopal Relief & Development continues to partner with dioceses throughout the affected areas as they assess the impact of these storms and prepare to respond. Local church partners are checking on leaders and members and planning the use of church facilities and resources where available.
They ask that you do not send food, clothing or other items to the affected communities, as they have very limited resources to receive and distribute them. Instead, you may make a donation that will directly impact the relief efforts by going to http://www.episcopalrelief.org/hirricaneharveyresponse/?ID=LB171 or by placing a check in the collection plate. Make the check out to the Church of the Redeemer, and state that it is for hurricane relief. In this way, we can let the people in these areas know that they are not alone.
- Diocesan Convention: November 10-11, the Diocese of Western North Carolina will meet at Kanuga in Hendersonville. We are sending the requisite two Delegates and two Alternates, of course, but everyone is welcome to attend the convention as non-voting visitors.
