Vina Moses School Program: This August, the Church of the Good Samaritan is helping disadvantaged children in our community get ready for the school year. To do this we are lending our support to the Vina Moses School Program, which collects school supplies and clothing, and then on August 23-26 distributes them to kids in need. Last year they served 900 children through this program - that's a lot of pencils! This year they are in need of: markers, colored pencils, theme books (college ruled), crayons, children's clothing (girls and boys, sizes 8-14), socks and underwear. Cash donations of $50 sponsor one child, or are applied to purchase shoes. To contribute to this effort, please bring new items to donate to church on Sunday, August 13th, or to the church office by Wednesday, August 16th. Thank you, Cindy and Rex Cole

Dear ones,

It's wonderful to be back at Good Sam after a week or so's 'staycation' at home. It was really good to be able to spend time with the children and to get some bigger yard and house projects done. It was also great to just be at home and enjoy the summer weather here in the valley, after all there are many people who each year spend thousands of dollars to travel here and visit this beautiful place!

In the meantime I know that many of you have been busy while I have been away. Ruth has been organizing a number of fun events for this month and next. Coming up is a gathering time for families - it's this Sunday following in the 10.30 Eucharist. She has planned some other events - please see the Parish Opportunities section below for more details. Ruth and I and a number of others from Good Sam have been working with our friends at Grace Lutheran this week in hosting our joint Church Day Camp. It's been a great success so far and a lot of fun.

Don't forget the Fireside chats each Wednesday in July 7 - 8.30 p.m. in the courtyard - this is an opportunity to talk in an informal setting about any issues or questions that are on your mind. Remember to bring a chair and some snacks!

May God continue to bless us all as we seek to be His love in the world. Simon Justice
