Pohick Post

October 2016

Welcome to the Pohick Post Online!

This year's Apple Butter and Country Fair weekends were wonderful outreach events to the community, with lots of new faces showing up for some family fun and to see all the ministry that is going on at Pohick Church and with our many neighborhood partners. Thanks to Jeff Parker & Doug Smith, our Fair Chair and Co-Chair, to Randy Brooks, our Apple Butter Coordinator, and to all our many volunteer leaders and helpers for all their hard work in making this year's events a great success!

If you were out of town for this year's fair and Apple Butter weekend, click here to see a few pictures of those days on our parish Facebook page. You'll also find there some snapshots of our St. Francis Blessing of the Animals service.

Speaking of St. Francis, this month our Rector writes about his just-begun Fall series, "A Sprinkle of Francis for a Benedictine Church." Read his thoughts about how Franciscan theology and practice might help us in our outreach to the younger generations. Elsewhere, our Assistant highlights the Alpha Marriage Course, which is starting up this month and still has space available. Likewise, Bob Munson writes about religious tensions in Indonesia, Don Brownlee about the goings on around the Anglican Communion, and other articles highlight our upcoming Stewardship campaign and planning for November's Christmas Mart.

Read about these items and much, much more in this month's E-Post!
