THE ECUMENICAL RAINFOREST
All Saints’ Episcopal Church will be full to the rafters from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Monday-Friday, June 16-20, with children and adults sharing a Rainforest Adventure, exploring ways Jesus teaches his followers to care for creation and each other.
This Vacation Bible School is unique in that it is sponsored in partnership by St. Edmond’s Catholic Church, Westminster Presbyterian Church and the Parish of All Saints’ Episcopal Church and St. George’s Chapel.
“Working in cooperation with our brothers and sisters from St. Edmond’s, All Saints’ and St. George’s has been a true blessing,” says Dianne Deming, parish associate pastor of Westminster Presbyterian Church and Vacation Bible School (VBS) director.
“Combining the gifts and talents of all three churches will provide an enriching environment without precedent for the children of our community.”

What's the message being sent to these children? One church is as good as another. So why do our shepherds get so upset when the 20-somethings decide they like the services better in the Presbyterian church? (See blog below on the Bishop's Conference.) Because the collections are dropping? If you're gonna raise 'em on indifference, ya gotta accept the consequences. The concern is hypocritical.
