Cookie Outreach is scheduled for Saturday, December 9, so time to start baking!
Cancel Calendars- Because we no longer have a team visiting Bayside Center in Morro Bay, we aren’t collecting calendars anymore for that purpose. If they are being left in the Parish Hall for some other reason, please let the office know.
There are 2 or 3 bags of Christmas cards and general greeting cards in the Parish Hall. There is no note or name attached to the bags. Please let the office know who they are intended for or how the office can help route them to the correct party: Cookie Outreach? Card Ministry? Other?

Saw a brief piece of Robin Williams the other night. Thought it would be nice to revisit his thoughts on being Episcopalian. Enjoy!
Top 10 Reasons for Being an Episcopalian
(according to Robin Williams, that is):
10. No snake handling.
9. You can believe in dinosaurs.
8. Male and female, God created them; male and female we ordain them.
7. You don't have to check your brains at the door.
6. Pew aerobics.
5. Church year is color coded.
4. Free wine on Sunday.
3. All of the pageantry, none of the guilt.
2. You don't have to know how to swim to get baptized.
1. No matter what you believe, there's bound to be at least one other Episcopalian who agrees with you.
