Dear Faith Community,
Haven’t been able to make it to church this summer? For those of us lucky enough to be able to attend Faith, we’ve been blessed with a number of visiting priests who have filled us with joy and interesting sermons. It has truly been a wonderful thing to hear new voices and ideas. This coming Sunday the Rev. Dale McQueen will be with us again at the 9:30 service. Last Sunday Faither Dale inspired and lifted our spirits. I encourage everyone who can to come hear him this Sunday or any Sunday in August. In September we will be welcoming the Rev. Beth Orling. If you are curious about Rev. Orling you can find a sermon of hers on YouTube (Sermon given by The Rev. Beth Orling on July 24, 2022 at Grace Episcopal Church, Bainbridge Island - YouTube)
Later on in August, Paul Steinke and Ronnie Sue Leith will be leading the congregation in grief work. The community of Faith has suffered the departure of Mother Lura and the death of beloved community members. If you have thoughts about grief work, please share them with Paul Steinke and Ronnie Sue Leith.
FACEBOOK LIVE STREAM IS COMING TO FAITH POULSBO: The new camera has arrived and if the new streaming microphones arrive this week, we will try and stream this Sunday’s service to Facebook. If you haven’t seen our Facebook page already you can find Faith’s Facebook page here: Faith Episcopal Church Poulsbo | Facebook. Be sure to bookmark and save it so you can watch services when you can’t make it to the service. We might be on this Sunday but will certainly be streaming in the near future.
This Sunday’s readings can be found here:
- Isaiah 5:1-7
- Psalm 80:1-2, 8-18
- Hebrews 11:29-12:2
- Luke 12:49-56
SAVED THE DATE:
FAITH END OF SUMMER PICNIC SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 11TH!

Faith Episcopal Church – Poulsbo
Isn’t this a “nice” lesson Luke gives us about Martha and Mary? We’ve heard it for many years and like so many of Jesus’ stories, we think we’ve got it figured out. Martha is the Altar Guild and Fellowship Committee and Junior Warden and sexton and weeder. Marthas are the ones busy doing the work of the church around this place.
