St. John's Epistle for August 18, 2011

Dear church family and friends of St. John's,

Thanks to Rev. Linda Herron for preaching and providing pastoral duties while I was away. It's good to be back feeling renewed, refreshed and ready to move forward. I look forward to catching up with you and how your summer has been. This Sunday we are blessed to have Allen Barnhill's brass ensemble accompany us during worship with brunch after the service. I hope to see you there.

Here are links to updates about our life together and mission in Christ.

NPR interviewed Trees for Houston who said that we are now in an exceptional drought and trees will begin dying if it doesn't change or people don't water them. Trees for Houston can't keep up with all the trees they've planted and are encouraging people to water trees in esplanades and other public spaces near them. The Trees for Houston representative advised: "Punch a small hole in a 5-gallon bucket. Fill it up, put it by your tree and it drips out. You'll get more water percolating right where you need it in a more efficient way, than a broad lawn sprinkler system." In the meantime, we continue to pray for an end to this dreadful drought.

Jon B.
