SIGNS OF CHRISTMAS ALL AROUND!

Signs of Christmas are appearing in the Parish Book Store:  Advent calendars, wreaths & books of devotions; crèches; Christmas cards & decorations, plus TOFFEE-TO-GO, a perennial favorite.  What to get one who has everything?  We have Gifts-of-Grace cards for you to make a donation to one of our ministries in the name of that special person.  Come in soon.  And don’t forget to purchase a book for a child of the Mission of the Holy Spirit.

THANKSGIVING BEFORE CHRISTMAS!

The stores may be in Christmas mode, but what about Thanksgiving???  Celebrate Thanksgiving with items from the Parish Book Store—pumpkins and gourds for your table, books for children and cards.  Many items have been marked down, so don’t delay.  While you are here, remember to take a gingerbread girl or boy from our tree and purchase an age-appropriate book for a child from Mission of the Holy Spirit.

CELEBRATE THE NEW (LITURGICAL) YEAR!

For Episcopalians, the new (church) year begins with Advent, Nov. 27.  Celebrate the new year with a book of devotional readings that connect scripture with everyday issues.  We have such a book, no matter your age, gender, or interests.  Some suggestions are Rhythms of Growth, which uses language and metaphors drawn from nature that nourish, refresh and inspire; Cross Words: A Devotional for Youth, which follows the liturgical year, helping teens grow in faith through prayer; and A Look at Life From a Deer Stand, which celebrates God’s presence and provision.  Come see what else we have, and while you are here, pick up an angel from our tree and purchase a book for a child of The Mission of the Holy Spirit.

SUPPORT OUR MISSIONS

Every book you purchase from the Parish Book Store for the children of the Mission of the Holy Spirit serves two purposes:  The book enriches the life of a child who might not have much to celebrate at Christmas, and the sales add to our profit which supports seminarians from our Diocese.  So between November 1 and December 1, come in, choose a tag from the tree, find an age-appropriate book from our collection, and purchase it. Support us and our missions.
