The “Breakfast “Club” Tradition Continues

Uptown Chicago Grill (formerly Da Pits)

@ 2nd & Maclay Streets

9:30 am

Prompted by a question following worship on Sunday, the answer is. “Yes, the Breakfast Club continues.” Since early 2011 a loose collection of St Paul‘s members and friends regularly eat breakfast at Uptown Chicago Grill. 

Not actually a club, but St Paul’s members, families and friends meeting for good food and lively conversation.  No agendas – no meetings!  Bring your family and friends along – all are welcome.  Start out your busy Weekends with a great breakfast in a friendly atmosphere.

Most Saturdays between 9:30 – 11:30 am  you’ll find two or three neighborhood St Paul’s members eating at Uptown Chicago Grill, and you are welcome to breakfast with us any time it fits in your schedule. Just tell the staff you are from St. Paul.  They’ve come to expect us. There is always a table waiting. Hope to see you there.

Lenten Reflection for Sun 2/24/2013

Psalm am: 24, 29
pm: 8, 84 Jeremiah 1:1-10
1 Corinthians 3:11-23 Mark 3:31-4:9

While Jeremiah was still in his mother’s womb the Lord ordained him to be a prophet.  —-Jeremiah 1:1-10

At an early age, Jeremiah knew that he was called to be a prophet. But, because he was so young, he felt inadequate to fulfill his destiny. He struggled with this,yet the Lord told him to go and preach repentance and proclaim God’s love for them. God told him that He would put His words in his mouth and He would go with him whenever he spoke. He had to preach harsh and difficult messages and he did so through tears. As a result of his compassion for the people and his love for the Lord, Jeremiah became known as the “weeping prophet.”
Jeremiah was obedient and he preached to the nations. Many times he delivered his message with a heavy heart because the message grieved his spirit and he felt that it also grieved the Lord’s spirit. However, when the Lord called Jeremiah for this ministry, He also gave him a gift – “The Gift of His Presence.”

Lenten Reflection for Sat 2/23/2013

Psalm am: 55
pm: 138, 139 Deuteronomy 11:18-28
Hebrews 5:1-10 John 4:1-26

During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions
with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from
death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.  —-Hebrews 5:7

I grew up in a time that you were taught to respect everyone and help those in need. As a child I knew that God had a plan for my life as I tended to my friends bumps and bruises as well as bringing
home every homeless or injured animal. Church and God was a way of life for my family even through difficult times. As a young adult I found out quickly during the challenges of life if you weren’t careful
you could fall into sinful ways. During these times I prayed harder to God to protect me and my children.
I selected a career as a nurse and entered into a program at the Harrisburg State Hospital, I always felt the need to help people but the work and demands were so difficult while raising a family I quit the
program and then went to work for the Department of Welfare as a caseworker. I knew from the beginning this was God’s plan for me. I loved helping people and conduced my job with God as my guide. I worked there for 35 years and retired as the Executive Director.
At this time God said I am not done with you and sent me to St Paul’s in 2000 and now as the Senior Warden I continue to learn, develop, mature and honor God!
