Shiloh E-Pistle for October 22, 2020

Discussing Our Difference in Tense Political Times-“PURPLE” Film Screenings– Shiloh UMC will sponsor two on-line screenings of “PURPLE” on Thursday, October 22, and again on Tuesday, October 27, at 8:00 pm.  To receive a Zoom link to one of these showings,  please visit https://shilohbillings.breezechms.com/form/7e32a3. “PURPLE” tells the story of everyday Americans with opposing viewpoints who are addressing their differences head-on and discovering  the concerns and humanity that lie behind each other’s positions. Designed to build greater empathy and recognition in the face of deepening U.S. divides, “PURPLE” models a rare conversation that uplifts and inspires while going toward the heart of passionate political differences.   

People of Shiloh,
 
On November 1, we celebrate the sacred tradition of All Saints Day during worship.  This day is one in which we remember the shoulders of giants that we stand on in history.  The people who have lifted us up and brought us faithfully to the current day.  In our worship services, we will read the names of those who we have honored and who have died that were part of our congregation.  You will be given time to lift the names of others in your homes or small groups.  
 
If you are worshipping at home, I invite you to consider preparing a candle to light on November 1 in honor of all those you consider your saints.  In our community worship services, we will have the opportunity to light candles for those we have lost and remember.  
 
Our saints are anyone who brings us to where we stand now.  The stranger with kind words who we never saw again.  The beloved relative who urged us on.  Or the neighbor and friend who stood by us in challenging times.  Jesus asks that we celebrate the faith they shared with us and God begs us to remember that all of us are never separate from the love they showed us.  
 
May the Holy Spirit give you inspiration from your saints in the coming days.
 
 
Enthusiastic Peace,

Pastor Tyler

MISSION WORK

Let’s Make Some Noise!! – We will be collecting Noisy Offering again (both change and paper money are accepted) to support the Children/Youth programs in our church.  And, the banks are short on change so let’s get it back into circulation!! Bring it to Community Worship with you or drop your baggy full of change in the box by the front door of the church ANYTIME! 

Free Store News – This past week-end while inside a warm, dry home  watching the snow come down, my thoughts went to those who have visited the Free Store in the past. This includes not only the many homeless looking for a warm sleeping bag, but also the many who have a home but their poverty level doesn’t fund the purchase of warm bedding and warm clothing for their children. Are there items in your home that are excess for you but could meet the needs of others? If so, bring them to the church and place them in the outside box. Your support is what makes this ministry so effective. 

Are You Interested in Being the Lead for the Community Garden Next Year?  If you are, we would love to hear that!!  Please call the office or send an email to office@shilohbillings.church.

2020 Giving Tree – Like everything else in 2020, the giving tree will look and feel a little different this year.  Stay tuned for the scoop!

UPCOMING EVENTS 

Shiloh UMC’s Trunk or Treat is Canceled – Look What We’re Doing Instead – We have made the decision to cancel Trunk or Treat this year.

We will attach a note to each with greetings from the people of Shiloh.

Election Day Prayer Vigil – We will hold a prayer vigil on Election Day (Tuesday, November 3) from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm.  Then from 12:00-1:00 pm, Tyler will offer communion for anyone who wants to stop by.  Please join us for prayer on this important day in our nation’s democratic process.
