earthAn Environmental Moment

Have we humans permanently changed the Planet?

We invite you to read how our own former Presiding Bishop Katherine Jefferts Shori reflects on this question when she addressed a CU campus ministry-sponsored event earlier this month. Scientist, priest, and passionate voice for climate change and care for the Earth, Bishop Katherine holds, in addition to her MDiv, degrees in biology and a PHD in oceanography.  Bishop Katherine sheds some welcome light of the Cosmic Christ for our weary world in her speech, entitled, Cosmic Faith in the Anthropocene Age*1

We invite you to consider signing the enclosed petition, “Don’t Repeal the Clean Power Plan

(1) Anthropocene age. According to www.smithsonian.com , the age we are now living in that some scientists place at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, early 1800’s, and significantly compounded in the 1950’s with the advent of the Atomic age. it is defined by the undeniable impact we humans have on the environment that is causing a new geologic epoch.


Grocery Card Programgrocerycard

Thanks to the good work of Janice Moore, Caryl Stalick, and Jim Podolak, and to the efforts of 26 parish households, the Grocery Card Ministry earned $350 in its first month of operation. By the end of April, the team had sold at cost 57 King Soopers cards, each pre-loaded with $5, and 9 Safeway cards. You buy these cards from Janice, Jim, or Caryl, load more money onto them at the store of your choice, use them to pay for your groceries, and St John's earns a 5% reward!

If one month is typical, then those 26 households would earn St John's over $4000 in the course of a year!

  • If 100 households participated, then St John's could earn $16,000!
  • If 200 households participated, then St John's could earn $32,000!

Bear in mind that nearly 500 households call St John's their spiritual home. Obviously the benefit to our church could be substantial, so we'd like for all parishioners to participate.  If you'd like to buy a card, please bring cash or check and see Caryl, Jim, or Janice at the Grocery Card Ministry table at the Ministry Fair on Sunday August 27th. They can provide information and answer any questions you may have.

On behalf of the Vestry and Finance Committee, thank you to everyone who supports our church by shopping with a King Soopers or Safeway Grocery Rewards Card!
