We are truly one body. We are connected through our common life of prayer and discipline. We share one cup, and we share one bread to remind us that we are a part of something bigger than ourselves - connected to the vine of love. We sing, “One bread, one body, one Lord of all.”
Our stewardship theme for 2020 is simply, “One Bread, One Body, One World".” These six words beautifully summarize our vocation as a community and our calling as individuals. “One Bread, One Body, One World” is at the heart of what forms our liturgies and prayers. We will remember how we clothe the naked, give drink to the thirsty, feed the hungry, visit the prisoners, tend the sick, welcome the stranger and bury the dead. We will be thoughtful stewards as we use our common purse to keep all our ministries going, and to keep the lights on around the altar.
The staff of St. Aidan’s is ready to keep working. We are ready to care for our community through visitations, programming, education, and fellowship. We want to continue to feed one another and the greater world. As we all pause and reflect on our time, talents and treasures - as we take another bite of bread and sip of wine - keep praying for our common body and bonds. Let us pray that this bread will continue to form us and keep us walking in love, as Christ loves us, an offering and sacrifice for the whole world.
Our love and gratitude for the people of St. Aidan’s is boundless.
