    PARABLE & The Power of Table Fellowship - Dec. 6th: Pittman McGehee and Dave Madden
    Pub Church 5:30-7 p.m. at Scholz Garten, 1607 San Jacinto Blvd.
    PARABLE provides regular opportunities for folks in Austin to interact with some of our community’s most interesting individuals, PARABLE is a church about coming together and discussing issues of the heart, mind, soul, and spirit. While we hardly ever reach an ideological conclusion at PARABLE, this sort of concrete resolution is not the goal of the program. Rather, PARABLE is about the journey and the conversation, about respect toward differing opinions of the other, and about enjoying food, drink, and excellent music together with strangers and friends. Often led by NPR’s John Burnett, Front Porch founder Steve Kinney, and other notables, this platform for thoughtful conversation with folks of all sorts about the things that matter is what we believe church is all about. Communion at PARABLE is radically open to all, as we seek to recover the power of table fellowship before Jesus got turned into a religion.

    6:30 p.m. service: Festival of Story and Song (Church)

    Also please note:
    The children will be making Christmas stockings and filling them for the adults who come to our Loaves & Fishes program on Tuesday mornings. We are asking parishioners to consider donating items for filling the stockings. We can use grooming items such as soap, hand lotion, toothbrushes and toothpaste, shampoo, combs, deodorant, etc. We can also use gloves, socks, small scarves, sewing kits, manicure sets, nail polish, jewelry. Playing cards, pocket calendars or day planners are also good gifts. Hard candy, gum and mints are also nice. Because the children of the Day School provide stockings for any children who come to Loaves & Fishes, the stockings we fill will be for adults. All the gifts will need to fit easily into a 6” X 18” stocking. The donated items may be left in the church office or in the Production Company Sunday school room upstairs. We will need the donations before Saturday, December 12th.

    Free Sunday overflow parking in the 27th Street and Speedway UT garages. As you enter the garage pull a parking ticket and then have it validated at the All Saints’ Welcome Desk outside of Kinsolving Hall on Sunday morning. You need a validated ticket to exit from the garage. If you have questions or problems, please contact Mona Myers (cell 791-8141).
