The Book of Common Prayer: An Ancient Way for Modern People Since the Church began to pray in English nearly 500 years ago, the Book of Common Prayer has defined us as Anglicans more than any document besides scripture. It also links us with praying traditions that have taken root around the world over the last two thousand years and beyond. This inheritance of the Prayer Book comes down to us with an amazing story and with priceless treasures. Over four Sundays in Lent, we will meet after the 10:30 liturgy to rediscover some of the spiritual riches that our forbearers have passed on to us from ancient times to our generation. We meet February 25, March 4, 11, and 18. Bring a friend! Contact Jordan Draper if you wish to attend:

Fellowship of the Least Coin: The Fellowship of the Least Coin is an international ecumenical movement of prayer for peace, justice, and reconciliation. This movement was begun in 1956 by Shanti Solomon of India, who was part of a Christian women’s mission of reconciliation to countries on the Pacific Rim. The division among people and nations were made real to her when she was not allowed into Korea because it did not have diplomatic relations with India. She stayed behind in the Philippines, longing for a way to make all women feel part of the worldwide family of faith. As she prayed, God gave her the simple but profound idea of the Fellowship of the Least Coin. Today, FLC continues to grow into an ever-widening circle of prayer, embracing people around the world. The Altar Guild and the ACW at St. Margaret's always supported the Fellowship of the Least Coin. They have now expanded this program to include the parishioners of St. Margaret. There is a large can at the back of the church that you can put change into or you can collect your coins at home and bring them to church and put them in the can.
