There is just one item on the event calendar for this week:
Saturday, August 3rd is the Church Closet in the parish hall of St. George’s in Echo Bay. There will be a “Trunk Sale” on that Saturday which means there will be extra vendors hanging out in the parking lot to sell more treasures. If you like one stop yard sale shopping, come check it out. 🙂 (159 Church St. – super easy to find).
For Your Devotions:
August 3rd is the Holy Day of St. Stephen, Deacon and Martyr (if you didn’t already observe the day in December), martyred in 36 CE. Stephen’s ministry was to the Greek-speaking Jews, some of whom opposed his proclamation of Jesus as the Messiah and arranged for him to put on trial, claiming that he was blaspheming against Moses and Abraham. In a trial reminiscent of that of Jesus, Stephen was found guilty and was stoned to death in about 34 AD. For more information: https://www.thoughtco.com/saint-stephen-542519
