And… Church-On-The-Beach was a wonderful event in the life of our community! Many of us enjoyed the beauty of God’s glorious creation at Fay Bainbridge last Sunday. We were joined by porpoises (we’re not sure but we think the whales went to the Catholic service), eagles, gulls, sailboats, campers, kayakers and many airplanes this year. The air was fresh and warm, the waves were mostly gentle and not a hint of smoke hung in the air. The sense of community was so present in this beautiful setting, with children playing in the water, everyone throwing prayer stones into the Sound and young ones delighting elders at the amazing pot-luck that followed the service. We can’t think of a better way to be engaged in God and creation – we’re so grateful to live in this glorious place and worshiping together on the beach reminds us of our roles as stewards of our relationships but also of God’s fragile creation. What a day – St Barnabas community life at its best! A big thank you goes out to Heidi O’Brien, Tom Beierle, Julie, Cera and Tom on the staff, and to all who helped put this day together.
