Upcoming at Faith This Week
We are children of the resurrection. Luke 20: 36
Our 2019 Diocesan Convention begins Friday. Every year, the Diocese of Olympia convenes to take care of business, share information, worship together, and (usually) ordain deacons. This year, convention is in Lynnwood and Faith’s delegates are Debra Hurd and Brenda Toth. They will vote on resolutions, attend workshops, and find out what’s happening in the rest of the diocese. Please remember to keep all those who attend in your prayers and look forward to a report afterward.

Bishop Rickel’s 10 Rules for Respect
I every Letter of Agreement Bishop Rickel has with congregations, and now with the Diocese of Olympia he has asked that the “10 Rules for Respect” spelled out below be made part of the agreement. He first saw these in an article by Church of the Nazarene pastor Charles Christian. He believes that they are quite helpful in framing our communication and life together.
He vows to do his best to follow them and invites you to do the same. We will all fail, but through gentle challenge and loving encouragement these can become a foundation for healthy communication for us all.
Faith’s Bishop’s Committee also uses this model as a rule for how we conduct our business and are in relationship with one another.
Email Scam/Hoax Hit Local Churches
St. Bede’s was recently targeted by an email scam/hoax. The scammer sent an email to their congregation requesting them to purchase iTune gift cards to be sent electronically. A member of their congregation lost about $400 dollars.
The scammer created an email address with the Vicars name and title (as found on their website) then emailed people posing as the Vicar. A volunteer who was subbing for the church thought it was from the Vicar and paid $400 for the iTunes gift cards.
