The Sunday before Martin Luther King Day is a special one at All Saints'. This will be our third year welcoming a preacher from another faith tradition, and I look forward to Rabbi Carl's message to us all. This has been a trying year for our Jewish neighbors, and we are blessed to have Rabbi Carl among us this weekend.
In addition, we will hear the words of Pauli Murray. Mother Murray was a prominent civil rights activist and writer--and the first African-American woman ordained to the priesthood in the Episcopal Church. In 2017, Yale University named its newest residential college after her, in part to honor her achievement as the first African-American to receive a Doctor of Juridical Science from Yale Law School. She is a fascinating and inspiring figure, and in order to hear her voice, Adam Menninga, our choir director, has arranged her poem titled "Psalm of Deliverance (To the Negro School Children of the American South in the Year 1959)" to be sung by our choir as the psalm this week.

This Sunday at 5pm, Sound Bath Evensong returns to All Saints'. This meditative liturgy combines the traditional Anglican service of Evening Prayer with soothing sounds provided by musician Alex Beckmann. All money collected at this Evensong will be donated to CHiPS, our Park Slope soup kitchen and women’s shelter.
