We are in Ordinary Time after Pentecost

Increase, O God, the spirit of neighborliness among us, that in peril we may uphold one another, in suffering tend to one another, and in homelessness, loneliness, or exile befriend one another. Grant us brave and enduring hearts that we may strengthen one another, until the disciplines and testing of these days are ended, and you again give peace in our time; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

~A Prayer in Times of Distress (BCP)

What a time to be the Church. The Spirit is before us. Jesus is King of the World. We are not ceasing from being the church–how could we? The Spirit of God has made us who we are. We will be in this new place as God’s people. And we will love God’s world with courageous love.

 

How We Will Meet

We currently gather for Sunday morning worship at 10:30 a.m. in our public zoom meeting space and at the Waldorf School Pavilion (120 Waldorf School Road, Charlottesville VA 22901) as Covid guidelines allow. Please arrive a few minutes before 10:30 so that we can be ready to worship together, bending our hearts toward God in unison. 
 
Our zoom meeting space: All Souls Zoom Link 

 

In-Person Worship at Waldorf | Guidelines

During the spring and summer, we will be gathering in-person at the Waldorf School pavilion as Covid guidelines allow. As we did in the summer and early fall, we will follow all local safety protocols for outdoor, in-person gatherings. Please read our Guidelines for Worship at Waldorf.

Please remember to bring your own chair(s) and maintain proper distancing at all times. We ask that everyone arrive at least 15 minutes early, so that we can have everyone safely seated and ready to begin worship on time.

Brendan recently wrote some words expressing our hopes for our children at Waldorf. If you were not able to read them, you can do so at the link below. Also, please note that due to many factors (including liability), the playgrounds will be closed during worship, but are open after worship to children directly supervised by an adult.                         CHILDREN AT WALDORF

As always, in-person gatherings will be live-steamed at our regular All Souls Zoom Link. If you would like communion servings for use at home over zoom, communion packs will be available for pick-up at the All Souls office. We can also deliver communion packs to anyone who is unable to pick one up for any reason. Please let Bliss know if you’d like to schedule a pick-up or delivery time.
