Meet in the preserve parking lot off White Road for a family friendly guided meditative walk along the trails, giving opportunity to reflect on the Advent themes of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love. How, when, where, and to whom can we reflect these in our own lives and in our community? Afterwards all are invited back to St. Timothy’s, 871 E. Boundary St, Perrysburg for a soup supper, and for those who wish, please stay for the free concert, at 7pm, of Christmas themed harp music featuring the Salzedo Duo. This is an outdoor event; wear weather appropriate clothing and bring a flashlight if you have one.
St. Timothy’s has been using the “Expansive Language” Eucharistic rite, recommended to our consideration by General Convention 2018. On November 24, a small group of our people took up the invitation to reflect on our experience. We invite you who did not join us to consider the following questions (and share your written reflections with Fr. Jeff): Have you used the Trial Use liturgy? How does the language of the Trial Use liturgy focus your prayer? Do any of the changes contained in the Trial Use liturgy distract from your prayer? What do the Trial Use liturgies add to your experience of common worship? What do you miss when using the Trial Use liturgies? Links to further resources are provided […]
Three prayer circles interlock to provide “prayer coverage” of your prayer requests. If/when you have need for prayer – illness, thanksgiving, decision, change, etc. – contact any of these “circle facilitators” to initiate prayer: Diane Kleeberger, Diana Kiser (office), MaryJane Anderson, Kay Bunke. All consider it a privilege to offer prayer – and need only the details you choose to share to get busy (“Mary” or “John in need of prayer” is sufficient; God can, and will, figure it out!).

The Saints in Light | St. Tim’s has become all-too-familiar with “celebrations of life” (i.e., funerals) over the past year. Most recently, we’ve bade farewell to long-time community and parish leaders, Clint Mauk and Peter White. They join this year’s roll of Denis Breniser, Bob Campbell, Pat Mauk, John Dohr, Helen Evanoff, Ralph Lange, Jim Litwin, Karen Poole, Marty Schultz, Eric Tudor, Regina Young, Betty Whittier, Paul Tait, and Ann Dana. It is a great privilege to walk the mourners’ path with families and friends of our beloved – and to provide a safe and gracious space to laugh through tears and cry through laughter together. Thank you to all who have supported our efforts to enfold our guests (and […]
