A metaphor of our shared journey, the labyrinth is an ancient spiritual tool, found in almost all religious traditions in various forms around the world. Our labyrinth is a replica of the Chartres labyrinth, laid in the floor of Chartres Cathedral in France around 1220. By walking the labyrinth, you follow a tradition steeped in spiritual mystery practiced all over the world.
Growing up, my parents — my mother in particular — always spoke of the importance of a liberal arts education that spanned from the cradle to the grave. They consistently challenged their children to learn whether through our schoolwork and recreational reading or through experiences-–- visiting churches and museums, traveling, volunteering, working or watching the nightly news. As the four of us have gotten older, our passion for learning, for having new experiences, and for trying to see things from a multitude of perspectives has not diminished.

One Christmas past, I was so lauded for the gifts I gave to a group of clients that I actually became kind of uncomfortable. “Amazing.” “You blew us away.” “Wow.” They couldn’t say enough nice things. I don’t remember exactly what I gave them, but I do know where it came from – the All Saints Alternative Christmas Market.
During the month of October our Giving Department has worked in concert with both staff and volunteers to illustrate the amazing sweep of the work and witness of All Saints Church in four brilliant “info-graphics.” They were attached to the liturgy each Sunday and are now available here to show just how influential your pledge dollars are in funding All Saints’ commitment to connect, inspire and transform the human race into the human family in so many, many ways.

Neither screeching fire alarms (smoke in the Starbucks’ kitchen) nor drenching thunderstorms could dampen spirits on Saturday, July 18 when 28 children under the jurisdiction of the courts were accompanied by 40 volunteers to shop for back-to-school clothing at Target.

“It was the best strawberry I’ve EVER had!” my ten year old daughter exclaimed. Eyes shining, grabbing my hand and tucking her head into my neck, her enthusiastic and energetic response propelled us like wayward bowling pins into the church parking lot.
